Getting off the topic it seems that way to me too. Now when I try to purchase through Google I experience too much trouble. I have to read to many reviews that port me away from what Iím looking for. I don't want to familiarize myself with that ditzy Froogle. Who uses it. Even though I am an Adwords advertiser to many fly-by-nighters inhabit it. Yahoo on the other is to much spam. I guess the up and comers for commerce are MSN or Ask.
I think there are many of us who have sites that sometimes are up, sometimes down and we never touch them. We hold our hands up and wonder why. The reality is that you cannot predict the weight Google will put on anchor text one month and then perhaps 'title' the next. You just have to be pleased when they go up and patient when they go down. If they remain down for more than 3 months, then you have to consider doing something.
The count for one search that I do every day, suddenly dropped by about 25% after a simple "Refresh", and so I went looking to see why. All the SR listings were gone, and stayed gone for about 6 hours.
I tried lots of other searches and the SR listings were gone from those too.
I am wondreing if G is using some sort of definition matching. I think I saw a post here a while back about this. Meaning my phrasee is "FUZZY widget manufacturing". I see how some of these sites may qualify as "FURRY widgeet manufacturing".
Just a stab in the dark of course.

I saw it back and fourth for more than a month....
The site gaining rank are sites doing good SEO started about six-ten months ago: they gained several links in these 6-8 months.
