Some of my sites saw big ranking changes for every keyword throughout the site. These sites have been entrenched in their rankings for some time. Feels like a substantial algo change today. Not panda like but just an overall algorithm change. Anyone else notice anything?

    I haven't noticed anything on my sites. Are your rankings higher or lower?

    I haven't noticed any drastic changes with any of my sites yet. One keyword went back to its original ranking before Oct 14 but that is one keyword out of dozens that I was working on.

    I noticed 3 of my sites drop from position #1 to #2 at the same time.

    Looks like some kind of tweak.

    Nothing that can't be fixed

    My sites mostly dropped a bit. Nothing drastic but to me just seemed to be an obvious algo tweak because it wasn't just 1 keyword, 1 page, or 1 website of mine. My rankings were incredibly solid too so I don't think it was just coincidence.

      My sites have also been sitting solid in the #1 position for months. One site has moved back up to #1 again.

      So for me only 2 sites have dropped by 1 position and have been replaced by a big brand website.

      However, one of my new sites increased a few positions for several keywords.

    I have noticed some changes day to day - up one, back down the next. Different servers being used perhaps?

    Yes. I noticed. However I have noticed 3 changes this month alone. Looks like google is changing things quite often

    Some little shakeups for my websites. Nothing crazy though.

    It's not related, but one of my 'penalised' or just 'dancing' domains came back for a few days, made decent money and dissapeared again to the depths of Google hell. Shame, because with Christmas coming up I would have made even more - oh well.

      If there was a tweak made on their algo, I just hope that it would prove beneficial to my site in terms of my keyword rankings.

      Nothing too major except one keyword that was thrown from place 25 to 46 and the worst thing is this:

      Had 2 keywords of a different site for months on page 1 of Googe...one keyword dominated #2 and the other #6 and now they are nowhere to be found...not a new site and not new keywords.....very frustrating and not understood...didn't blasted backlinks or done anything wrong....don't understand this.
