    quite a lot of voting so far !

    Has no one got an opinion ?

    Someone voted for "A you method for the serps... e.g. 2 sets of data and switch almost giving double the top 10's "

    Why ?

    My theory against this is that constistant results normally mean quality results = happy surfers... ?

    Something is going on. I have no idea. If you had Donna's option up there I probably would have voted for that option.

    I voted for 'my serps are not moving wtf are you talking about' - my website is sandboxed so I only score for low level keyword combinations and I do not see any fluctations here. Of course I don't rank for anything too competative so therefore I will not see what the rest of you are seeing. However is this fluctuation for all keywords or just competative ones?

    (I consider something mildly competative if there are more than a million competing pages)

    I agree with Donna, Google are having problems. The update got it's own complaint e.mail address and complaint web form. The good people at Google are having some problems creating a index with fair results. I am not complaining I got a PR4 domain in the top 5-18 for a 66,100,000 results keyword that I would never have dreamt of targeting:-) Since the page content doesn't really match the query I make a noteworthy extra every day from adsense.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to dazzlindonna again.

    Probably testing multiple data sets to combat spam.

    SERPs I look at are all over the place.
