gyrations in google's ranking

I have been experiencing huge changes in rankings in google.  I know
google is always changing their algorithm, so I can not take anything
for granted, but has anyone else been seeing these heart stopping
changes in ranking?  Swings as much as 200 positions. I am going
though my site and checking it twice. Maybe its just my sites or maybe
a major update.

If as it seems, all of those sites are on the same server, then if you
screw up one, the others will often be penalised as well. For
instance, if you link from one to the other - on the same server, they
will all get penalised in one form or another.
Maybe one ovenue for you to research

Are you going to find out who's naughty and nice? ;-)

How old are your sites? Sometimes you get a "bump" for being a new site then
drop down the rankings if you don't get sufficient link love and clicks.

G is clamping down on sites that sell links but they seem to be hitting
sites they buy the links  harder hitting there SERP as well as PR

I purified my outbound links a little and checked my sites with care,
twice to make sure I was nice and not naughty.  I could find no bad
SEO habits.  So I can only say that heart stopping drop from the top
10 to 200 in most of my keywords was a temporary thing.  I am now back
in my normal rankings.  I have no idea what caused that two day
