Logical explanation is that Google diluted PageRank across the board again to make room for more indexed web pages in the 1-10 system.
back links is inbound links to your site
serps is search engine ranking page
www2 and www3 are the different data centers where the update goes on for 4-5 days before the entire results migrate over to www.google
so go to www2.google and type in your top keywords to see where you will rank approximately for the month of Feb.Look up Everflux in the site glossary [searchengineworld.com] and library

I hope PR hasn't settled down yet. Still, early indications are mine went down, my rank went up. From 30 to 6 and brand new site to #7.
My competitors are really going to be scratching their head when they see this one.

if so, go to directory-sj.google.com and toggle down through all the categories until you get to your category page. By squinting real hard at your PageRank Bar at the far left, and comparing yours in relation to those above and below you, you can get a rough idea.
Plus, there is always the Handy Dandy PageRank Checker method (don't have that link with me at the moment but it's an awesome page) and the toolbar method but those two methods might confuse you.
Hope that helps.
PS Am I the only one that checks my rank every 15 minutes to make sure it isn't a dream? Obsessed? Naahh! I can quit anytime I want.
I just don't want to.
btw, google fresh bot is in my site as of 20 minutes ago..is that odd during a dance?
If anyone else is seeing something similar I'd be glad to hear about it and maybe we can find a common cause; otherwise I'll have to cross my fingers and hope it fixes itself.
I wasn't lucky at last re-index. My indexed page went
down from 1530 to 61. Visitor droped from 5k to 1,5k daily.
But, fortunately, my PR is OK.
And now, backlink(according to Zapatista) is 15,800 and
'allinurl' command gives me 4,020. I will get 2,500 new
webpage indexed. Thanks.
For example.... site of a fellow who had content on an AOL page is still in the Google directory, getting the benefit of a PR7 link while that AOL site has been removed from DMOZ and replaced with a new, stand-alone domain. The stand alone domain now has the one ODP PR7 link, while the now dead AOL page also has one. Instant mirrors. The AOL one will instantly die once the RDF dump dumps it out of the Google directory, but till then it has high pagerank and clutters the search results with a duplicate. </rant>
