Google moving my site around

I had a site on page 6 on Google for certain keywords.  Today I found it at
result #20 on page two.  For another set of keywords the site was something
like #345 in the results a month ago but was #4 on the first page today.

Now I checked it again about 6 hours later and my first set of keyword
results are back on page 6 and my other words are nowhere to be found (maybe
lost around page 30?).  I was feeling great about finally getting to the
first page but now it's gone...

Has this ever happened to anyone before?  I updated some pages (added text
content) on the site but I didn't change the home page (the target page).

I am really confused.  This morning (next day) my sites are back to their
higher ratings again:

On Google:
from page 6 to page 2.
from page 30+ to page 1.

I'm reading a lot of posts below about disappearing PageRank.  I noticed
that I wasn't getting any PageRank readings yesterday (or was it the day
before?).  I wonder what happened or if that had anything to do with it.

No one knows what happened with the page rank. It is normal for seeing
different positions sometimes, maybe you are hitting a different data center
that hasn't been updated.
