So I looked on WW thinking I would read page after page on this, but nothing...
Could this just be peculiar to my niche? (which is retail and very competitive).
These sites have enjoyed the top positions on all the big money keywords for years. It will be interesting to see if they will find it necessary to use Adwords.
Today happens to be my turn to be #1 & 2. I don't think its anything to get excited about just yet unless it sticks! :)
But this last change, which does not seem to be widespread at all, really nailed their area. It's almost as if the algo said, "let's give some insignificant pages a chance".
I don't pretend to understand it yet - but my client naturally is pressuring me to figure it out.

Both G Serps & G Directory were back to normal when I checked the next day. There was a 2 day delay in the mod's allowing this post so I couldn't point this out at the time.
What I would like to know is if
a) I saw a glimpse of the future
b) I saw a Google wobble (if there is such a thing)
c) A Google-bod tweaked a dial somewhere
What could cause 3 very successful, ever present sites to drop massively in the Serps and then be back again as if nothing had happened? Also, what would explain the yoyo of 20 pages in the G Directory?
