Some pages dropped to rank 950
Before the 28th Sept I had about 10 pages on my site rank in the top 10 google for their keyword now I only have 1 page and the rest are ranking at 950 +.
I have no messages in WMT, Reconsideration request came back saying no manual penalty.
Any thoughts / suggestions/

Is this happening everywhere, or is it mainly a Google thing?

It is just with Google, on Bing pages have gone up!

then most likely it has somethign to do with the update, you dont always get a warning in WMT, you will just see a drop in rankings. We had the same thing but finally ours has come back up again.

If your domain keyword based, Maybe penalized by Google, Check EMD Updates by Matt Cutts. https://twitter.com/mattcutts/status/251789327691042816

There was a Panda update September 27th. Does your site have content that is duplicated elsewhere on the web? Does it have a lot of thin content? If so, then Panda could be your culprit.

A small number of PLR articles which are "noindex", some pagination where the page would be too long otherwise and these have rel next and prev.
