I have had a strang experience recently with Y. Let me begin by saying that our other sites enjoy great success with Y. We are working on a new site. We were rankied at 640 for our main KW and and in 100s for secondary KWs. Noticed a few rookie mistakes with onpage optimization and changed them. Jumped 600+ spaces for main KW in two days and 100+ for the secondaries. Basically we were dialing it in. So we let it settle for a few days and then went back and made two really minor tweaks to the index page. The next day two things happened:
2) All of the robots activity dropped. Y was using 1-1.5M of bandwidth everyday and 125 hits and G was using around 3M and 350 hits. This dropped to 15K and 7 hits and 150k and 25-30 hits.
1) We dropped back down to our SERPs.
Weird. Coincidence? I really need some opinions here.
