First time I've seen this for me -- a domain that I mentioned in another thread recently as de-optimized and moved from one region to another less than 2 weeks ago -- it is crowding page one positions #4, #5, #6, #7 of 10 for one of its targeted terms. Good recovery from -50. For those following along this is not the domain that had a -10 from middle of page one to middle of page two. I was okay with this -50 one because it owned spot #1 in local Google Places for it's targeted term but not organic. Looks like it has now climbed out of the -50 filter and in addition is crowding page one.
I've mentioned that term quite a bit lately (de-optimized) without going into any explanation as to what I'm doing but I want to have something concrete to report and I'm going to need to try at least one more domain (my own) to be sure it's not a flash in the pan. I don't want to add more confusion to the situation if it's just a temporary spike. I want it to be stable and tonight is the first I've seen of this but it certainly is encouraging.
