    I track rankings for hundreds of keywords and every day there is movement for a lot of them.
    One day, a keyword dropped down by 50 spaces. Next day, it's back up by almost 40. To me, it doesn't make sense. What is Google doing here?

    As long as I don't lose my #1 rankings, it should be okay!

    This might be down to the bots and crawlers. I think Google goes through adjustment periods every few months, maybe like 3 or 4 times a year because I have noticed this myself but things seem to go back to normal after a few days to a week.

    Ah so if it doesn't change after say, a week, then it is likely another issue. I will have to look into this more if that is the case. It has been puzzling me big time.

    When did you notice this happening? If it has been within the last month, that might be down to Google changing and updating things. It happened to me as well this month.
