SERPs minus 20 mysterie

    Hi,

    Something weird happened this morning.

    On all the sites I monitor, in 9 out of 10 cases, all the top 10 key phrases dropped around 20 places. Not just one or two as happens, but consistantly across the board. And believe me, I had many many top 5 rankings and ALL have been dropped down to 20 - 30!! :mad:

    What is going on?

    I haven't sone any on page SEO in recent days that might have triggered it and it never happened before.

    Anyone seeing this today or have seen it before?

    It better go up again soon coz I can foresee a huge dip in traffic ;(

    Is a 20 places drop something they commonly use for penalties? It just can't be coincidence on 60 phrases can it?!

    Your view will be appreciated... Your magic even more!

    are all of these sites interlinked?

    if so that could very well be the cause of the drop- either it's been detected automatically by a filter, perhaps by the IP of the hosts, or something was manually detected and PR stopped flowing from these sites.

    both are possible. without any more information (or urls) it's hard to say though.

    Yes they are on the same IP blocks. But no duplicate content between them.

    It wasn't a 24 hour drop, it's still all around 20 - 30 .

    I did check it manually this time in G itself and found that the tracker is way off on a lot of these (luckily) thus making it not so bad as it seems at first.

    I didn't change my preferences or anything so I wonder what is going on. I better contact Shawn...

    Do you have a URL+keyword example that you think the keyword tracker is reporting wrong? What is it reporting, and what are you seeing it if you check manually?
