Around October 1st I got slammed by Google and dropped from top of page one to page three for some of my most competitive searches. This weekend I noticed I returned to either #1 or #2 for these terms on Chrome/PC vs. bottom of 1st page on Firefox/PC, top of page 2 on Safari/Mac. Still on page three where I was for IE9/PC and on Android web browser. I checked on two different PCs and one mac, and two android phones...cleared the cache and restarted before every search, and was not logged in to any google service while browsing. It seems pretty clear that Google is segmenting the data by platform, browser, location, and mobile/non-mobile. I am wondering if this reflects data sent to Google about my site from Analytics...for example bounce rate or page load time for each browser? Or possibly the fact that my site is not mobile friendly? Or will all the data eventually match? Anyone else seeing this?
