Now for more wierdness. I happened to look at analytics amd my internal stats and it looks like I had an almost recovery an hour ago, that lasted for about a hour - although I can't really be sure - as the SERPS dont verify this and I was actively checking them out at the time.
I noticed I had a new #1 keyword phrase,
The phrase was my #18 phrase - just before the algo update and used to rank at position in the SERPS - the phrase is contains a product name and type and is in the plural. I used to received about 10 to 15 referals from that phrase.
It dropped out of the 1st 2 pages on Friday but on Saturday returned to position 4.
I went to recheck it because analyticssiad I had 20+ referals from it today and was wondering if Id gone up in the serps.
But I'm in position 18. In #4 position is "a how to use said product" article, which is kind of wierd as the search phrase is just the product. Strangely enough position #10 is held by Squidoo - but that is actually relevevant as someone has written about their home made products
For the most part when I've run into eHow - I usually get some relevant info - but they have managed to take the "How To Pour Milk" article that Tedster posted a link to somewhere and and turned it into a "How to pour milk from the dairy named #*$!#*$!x" article.
Everything I am seeing is just so confusing.
