    yes, yesterday my site dropped 7th position to 45th position, everything seems normal in WMT and backlink etc. I see one of my competitor site moved to 3rd page as well. is there any update yesterday in sepr?
    what should I do know this was my main source of income :eek::eek:
    The site is 5yrs old and has 450k backlink in WMT

    Do not panic, wait and see if it is a temporary situation. If not, analyze what has changed both on your site, and in the SERPS, e.g. what kind of movement do you see, are there similarities between your site and the other site that dropped?

    I don't wanna be panic but you know I can't stop it. :confused: yeah I guess I should wait someone told me it happened to them in 2008 but after 1 week everything was fine.
    both of them are old he has higher PR thn me but I have more backlink. same niche so site content are similar.
    I really don't see any change in GWT :eek:

    Noticed the same for one of my sites. It went from #3 to #11 :eek:

    Also noticed a different site of mine go from #191 to #3 and #4 with double listing :D

    Both happened in the last 1-2 days.

    Same happened to me (few weeks ago) I went from 3rd to page 30+. Since then, the site came back up about 5 times and down again.

    the same thing has happened to me two times.but what happened ultimately was it gained the original position again.i did nothing though,just continued building links like i usually do.did not accelerate it or decelerate it in any way

    I've been noticing this kind of Google dance for last 2 months - happening to 60% of my adsense sites which are less than 6 month old. Some of my sites ranking in page #1 get thrown to page #19 or 20. And some sites which are not even ranked in first 20 pages suddenly appear in page #1. I feel these are different algorithms which are switched by Google on a periodic basis - but it leaves us without any clue what we should do / should not do to gain rankings in Google. All my sites have unique original content.

    I have been facing similar situation since long back, all i try to do in order to fight this is, i try to increase the CTR for my sites in the serp. I click plenty of times on my links, yes with proxy.... & i make sure i never hit the back button....

    Usually this solves the problem in a day or 2....
