Why would one of my sites lose ranking entirely for home page on iPhone but for all other devices only slip one place?
Because SERPs "fed" to Mobile devices have always been slightly different..
I have over 250 EMDs in English language ( many others in non English language )..very many "micro site" type ( 1-10 pages )..many money keywords and or high volume search high competition Keywords..mostly 5,6, 7,8,9,10 letter domains..mostly ( even those which are KW1KW) are not hyphenated when live..No change to any..as a result of this "tweak" ..all holding page 1 , most are already position #1,#2,#3 ..have not moved..
1 exception to that, a 6 letter EMD, was #3 for search of near 1 billion..is now #2..
Other non EMDs ( I don't have many compared to my EMDs ) have not moved down , a few have moved up..
I don't expect that they will roll this out the same way in French SERPs ( and other languages ) the way they have in English SERPs ..they rarely do treat other languages exactly the same way as English SERPs, penalising EMDs would give them more of a problem..
