    Any one notice any big ranking drops in Google? I have a few sites that completely dropped in rank and they are not tied together in anyway.

    Been having problems dropping a few spots and some just being stuck for weeks.Some keywords even dropped a few pages. Even though I have been building links non stop and buying links for those links.

    Nope. You sure your link building strategy isn't the same on them?

    Nothing big, check your backlink profile for lost links.

    My rankings only dropped on one of my websites I was using to test out a theory (which was the cause of the drop), but they improved after a month.

    Your site suddenly drop ranking means, you have to check out all of those things which i mentioned below:

    1. Internal linking
    2. your site speed
    3. links, but not to the page that dropped in rankings
    4. web page updation
    5. click-through rate
    6. social shares

    Had some very minor drops across the board today, like 1-2 spots. I added some new content so it's probably going to go back up... some people on SER have mentioned penguin, but I don't really think so at the moment.

    Over the last few days, I've had a few long established first page keywords disappear out of the top hundred and then re-appear in their original position the next day or so. Not really sure what's going on.

    No changes occur.

    The common cause of significant ranking drops are due to the spammy backlinks, so check for that.
    Spammy backlinks include some tactics
    Reciprocal linking
    paid links
    site wide links
    Links from low quality
    Overuse of keyword.

    Competition - Website changes position due to the amount of competing sites that surface over time.
    Insufficient content - Make your content with some quality. If your content quality losts your ranking may gets down.
    Irrelevant content - And also check the contents that you are given for your niche is releated or not. Make sure about the content that are relevant to your niche.

    Everything looks good on my side. Check your site via GWT who know's you got a warning from google about what happened. Otherwise it could be just dancing.

    Make sure that you dont have content with 'stuffed keywords' . If the content seems fine to you, try adding videos or images that can you can use to generate traffic from social networks. It is one of the fastest ways to increase your ranking
