Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
We have regained old top positions overnight that were lost in June and that had only recovered for some weeks in August.
Absolutely ZERO changes have been made to the rich content site since we had tanked completely.

Did anyone know what google is doing. We have not done any change at all , Apart from adding X'mas images and banners which is just replace of images and adding certain images nothing else..
Please if anyone can confirm what is going on.
Not coming up in SERPs for terms that were top 3 the last few days.
This gets tiring...
I'm seeing the same fluctuation on my largest site (traffic / page number-wise).
Got hit hard early summer, steady and impressive growth from mid August, hit very hard again around Sept. 30th and then a very large increase (nearly doubled) on Thursday and then backed up by some steady growth yesterday.
FYI this is a new site, launched in Feb. Domain's been online since app. Aug `05.
My old "authority" high PR (7+) sites aren't being hit in this up and down way.
I'm sure there are big losers this week because for me the pattern seems clear at the moment for all non-authority sites. It's almost as if we're split into two groups and as these "data updates/flushes,whatever" happen one group wins, the other loses. It's a see-saw motion that only seems to keep half of us happy at best.
I think the only way out of this is to stay online, build those links and to establish yourself as a worthy site.
I'm sure that people with old authority sites will now pipe up and say that they've also been hit hard this week :)
The other odd thing, that no one else seems to have mentioned or seen has been the way my PR on my homepage has been changing from 4/5 and back again almost constantly since the start of October. Backlinks also fluctuate at will between 593 (for sure too low) and 26k (much too high) whereas I feel the "real" figures more like 4k. Odd.
I remember when I got business from over 200 search engines. Google's market dominance just doesn't seem good for the vast majority.
let's take a keyword "Breast Cancer: What Women Should Know" (with ")
(one site which took hit)
SERP shows obgynhealth.net/womens-health/breast-cancer.html
I'm not sure why SERP don't show the most relevant listings right now.
