Well, to bump this up, I'll say no - totally stable and very pleasing.

usual flux...one position here and there. No update.

Why do this Flux happen? Does Google switch algos/filters every day?

Well, some of my results changed but it might be due to a new cache... can't say for sure.

I would also be interested to know what causes daily flux. Rounding errors? The minimal effect of on-page SEO or is it just the normal of movement of sites on the move?

Here's a theory that I have. From the changes I've observed (on one of my keywords). The number one has been up there for a while, and in the industry it means big bucks. Now that they are gone, all the money they made is going into PPC in this costly industry. This has happened to me before (2 times) and ofcourse I got into the costly ppc ads. IMHO this is business for G, help you make the money then "sandbox" you so you can, in return, stuff your income into their ppc system. G SERPS natural? Sandbox? I call it business! You make it, they take it.

A little paranoid, but logical nonetheless.

I just dropped out of the top 1000 for a high money keyword that I used to be a big player in - until an hour ago or so. AAAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHH!

Google sales will be calling soon, je suppose.

I noticed a pretty big change this afternoon for about an hour or so and then my cache went back to dec 25...this morning it was dec 28....it was obviously an algo change b/c different snippets in the page were picked up that normally were never touched...it did go back to normal though reverting to this older cache...who knows!

I've seen some weird stuff going at google. Extreme bouncing up and down from #1 to #14 and all over the place. Also, listings that have little to nothing to do with the topic have crept up to be top listings. (Casino's, shopping sites, travel guides, hotel reservations all now in the top 10)

For example, I searched for "churches" and a site called Dungeon Majesty is near the top offering "Hot chicks playing D&D on TV!"

It seems a total mess.

I'm seeing some serious strangeness... a couple junky sites with lots of outbound links with, I kid you not, PR ONE and TWO, are beating well established sites (PR 6 adn 7) in some of the keywords I monitor. Is Google experimenting with moving away from PR, on-page content, and, oh, I don't know... relevancy?
