    Huge jump in my keywords too, VS. One of my dating sites was not even in the top 1,000 and two major keywords are now #46 and #50. :cool:

    Still not seeing anything to indicate a bl update, but kw's holding steady. Did see a large jump on some that I have been struggling with for a LONG time.

    not only the States. I am based in The Netherlands, having heavy result changes, without backlink changes currently.

    What I mainly see is I get back what I lost during christmas as well.

    I've seen a lot of changes too. My face has been getting fatter and I've found myself thinking about the past a lot. These things have certainly made more of a difference to my life than a BL update would ;) :rolleyes: :D

    I am seeing changes for the worse. Major drop in rankings for no reason, with my traffic cut in half. This has been a bad day for me, on so many levels! :(

    Has anyone seen any BLs updated and if so what DCs are you seeing the changes in. I have looked at several of our real estate keywords and have yet to find any changes negative or postive.

    Looks like my keywords are jumping around after all. All this is getting on my nerves. I only hope my positions emerge unscathed from this update...

    My sites are on the up, I seem to have broken from the sandbox (or some filter). No update in backlinks but a massive surge in the SERPS :D

    Today I've lost ALL of my #1 rankings (except for one that I don't care about). Dropped completely out for most, dropped a page or more for the rest. Odd because I have no changes whatsoever in backlinks or PR on any of my sites on any DC's.

    My eBay page got dropped completely 2 or 3 weeks ago. I assumed it had been banned but then it appeared at position 49/50 briefly several days ago. Some of the DC's are showing it at 20 now, so it looks like this was "just a dance."

    Can you provide a little info on how long you were sandboxed, and how old the site is.

    Do you still get any traffic at 49/50? I'm in a similar position for a competitive keyword and receive no traffic whatsoever

    The site I've seen the biggest change on is http://www.delphi-central.com I purchased the domain in 09/04. I used to have a similar site with a personal ISP which this is the replacement for, unfortunately the ISP refused to do me a 301 so had to build all the links again.

    It does have one 301 redirect from a site I abandoned about 5 years ago (when I moved to the now previous one :confused: ) this had a massive 11 back links ;).

    The site does have a fair few highly relevant backlinks and gained a PR5 in the New Year update :). It's in a dieing niche market so the revenue off it is not particularly high :(. It works as a good test site for different ideas.

    If you want any other info ask away, I'm very open to sharing stats as I have gained so much from this forum.

    I have a 28 spot on a highly competetitive keyword - PSP - and get a hit per day. Other keywords on first pages get hundreds to thousands of clicks from the big three SEs, I have others on page 4 and 5 of SERPs and get nothing. I was surprised that the 28, 3rd page, even gets a hit or so daily.
