Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Any thoughts on this? Up until recently, my site did not rank in the top 1000 in Google for my main search term. I did a bit of research, made a lot of changes, bought some software to help even. Since then it had a dramatic increase in placement. In the space of around two months it moved up to place 19.
I have not made any changes in last 4 weeks, but it has still been climbing......until yesterday. It has now dropped out of the top 1000 again. The site still ranks for other words and has not been dumped all together.
I am feeling a bit confused. Could any one offer advice please?

What kind of software?
Just noticed that the fourth (4) drop/collapse has begun, intesting to see if it lasts the same amount of time as the two latests dives (both 3 days).
And SERPs are just getting less and less good each time, now even entertainment/gaming sites are showing among search results I'm monitoring (nothing to do with gaming/entertainment).
Each datacentre appears to have slightly different data within and each show slightly different SERPs, some display stuff that is very very different.
There are many lists of IP addresses out there, but most are very incomplete. I provided some updates about a year ago, more than trebling the size of previous lists.
On the one i was using for the original post i have now crept back up to 19, so crisis over. Now I just need to work out how to get rid of the '9' from the '19'.
There's absolutely no way these sites got there on natural linking popularity. Again, I probably went off topic, but changes are indeed afoot. Scary! Money talks...paid for links.

They want you to use Adwords.
No, they just want you to stop #*$!ing with their search results.
One of my two site (that are both in the same industry) lost major placement in the Google SERP's today, hundreds of terms went from page 1 to page 6 and worse. But the other site is still ranking fine, unaffected.
Has this happened to anyone else?

- rankings varies depening on the adverbs: for some sites there is a big difference in ranking depending on the adverb; the adverb IN is very important; see hotel new york compared to hotel in new york.
- some sites ranks subpages better than homepage
I hope it's a temporary glitch, because I can not understand the moving...
When results are strange, the number of results are 10 % of the normal results; for example for "widget1 widget2" phrase normally 50.000.000 results and during the strange phase only 5.000.000 results, usually less.....
Something is happening...
I'm still trying to find out exactly what allinanchor is measuring. Previously I was #1 for allinanchor:search term and #1 for search term.
Now I'm #4 for allinanchor:search term and #4 for search term.
Other sites in the top 10 for this term match these results.
I'm convinced that this is not a coincidence and if I can get what Google is measuring as indicated in allinanchor back up to #1 I'll be back htere as well in normal web search.
Anyone else seeing a lot of spidering?
