For one of my keywords, the positions are constantly changing every couple of days. Before the algo update, the page was ranked second, then moved down to 10, then 7th, and then 11th and now it settled at 7th since yesterday.
Ive seen this pattern too. It jumps up and down during the day and after a while it settles on a position. I'm now trying to get it go up and down again en move up in the serps. This is a highly competitive keyword and it's amazed my how high it got during this up and down period.
Maybe important to say we didn't have the algo change yet.
Edit: If you cannot have Ads in the content what's the point of having ads anyway? It's also the position the Adsense team recommend to put it there.
