Could this be specific to some sectors? My positioning unchanged for several different sites on different subjects - none are consumer-type sites - they are all business to business.

I think this one was. It appears to be another one of their minor changing results.

I gained one place in the top 10 in one site, lost one place 3 to 4 in another (but a further page got indexed in the top 30) - a third site stayed the same

No changes on any of our sites (all B2B).

Upon further review, what happened to our listings was too much success. We were #1 and #2 under 5 top music searches. Both those positions fell. Alta has been doing this alot with #1 and #2 listings. I think they have a tracker on the number of searches a page comes up under and then nuke the listing when it gets to a certain point. I've seen #1 and #2 drop out of sight many times in the last few months while the rest of the listings remain ok (under all bigger searches).
