    Hi guys,

    today morning I didn't believe my eyes. I tracked all my sites for a long time now and I never saw such an increase of rankings. Nearly all of my sites went 3-10 positions to the top of SERPs (18 new top 1 rankings for totally different keywords). I'm a German SEO and all my sites are German. Did anyone else notice huge changes? I only use PBN to rank, nothing else (no blog comments, web2.0, tier buildings etc.), just PBN.

    There is definitely something crazy going on. But mozcast doesn't show any changes today.

    Best,
    yoyopart

    I doubt there was an update. Your PBN must have kicked in. It's all normal on my serp tracker.

    I have insane increases across some websites <3 I think something is up!

    Only my Dutch/German sites increased, English websites still the same.

    I've also notice a difference on my new site.
    Since I'm still building it was poorly ranked etc. But I haven't done any linking or PBN's yet just been getting content on there and it gone from rank 120 to 80~

    Prolly just by chance because of the content but still that's 4 pages in 24 hours.

    Having a lot of ranking improvements on many of my foreign sites, definitely something going on.

    Unfortunately, improvements like this are quite typical before an update and big hits! :p

    I don't think it's an update. It's more like your PBN kicked in. Have fun, OP.

    Multiple sites affected from multiple users - who surely haven't used the same link building techniques. Great reasoning!
