    Desktop rankings dropped off, mobile rankings remained the same... why?


    Hey guys

    Is anyone experiencing a huge fluctuation in mobile rankings compared with desktop?

    My money page has dropped out of top 100 on desktop, but is sat in 13th on mobile rankings in Google.

    Why do you think this is?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    It could be any number of things. Sorry my crystal ball is broken so I can't diagnose the problem without a link.

    I think you need some links that carry pagerank and more relevant content on your site that links to your SEO page

    Thanks Kernel I appreciate your feedback, however it's not really answered my question... I want to know if anyone else has seen a huge drop like this and why it might be. I know what the site needs, just can't believe it's dropped so badly on desktop. Anyone else able to help?

    I have not seen anything like this with my own clients.

    How long has this been happening? Of course it is quite common for a SERP to disappear for a day or so, then miraculously re-appear.

    I will assume you have eliminated issues related to search history and location.

    I audited your page, I believe Kernalpanic is correct. Since the local update was applied last month rankings have changed.
    You have a lot of competition and for the term "seo northampton" I find you on page 5 at the fold. (desktop search)

    I suspect that you may just now be feeling the effects of the local update now based on the cache date from Google. I checked for your last cached date and found
    the following info.......
    This is Google's cache of brightdesign.co.uk/seo/ It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on Oct 5, 2016 23:40:43 GMT.

    Since you are just now noticing this issue, I would suggest you make some adjustments for Possum and also take Kernalpanics advice as well.
