Right now I have a page that we have been working on for awhile - a page that started all of this controversy for me. When the page was first listed it was in the mid-800s. Then after about a week it went to about 635. I made so on-page changes and it jumpt into the 20-40 range. I let it settle there for a few days and made another little (and I mean little) change to try and goose it up to the first page. Instead, the very next day it was back to 635. I freaked. Rich noted it might be the cache - but I wasn't looking at the cache until this point so unfortunately I don't know what is showed. Now - about a week later we are 435, but the cached page is about 2.5 weeks out of date. It is the page as it was before we made any changes. We are currently watching to see what happens when the cache updates. My belief is that we will jump in the SERPs. Will let you know.
