SERPs.com is showing more volatility than normal over the past days:


SERP Metrics also is warmer than the average day recently:

But the main thing is that the ongoing WebmasterWorld thread does indeed have chatter. It is holiday weekend and pre-holiday weekend chatter but nevertheless, SEOs and webmasters feel something is going on. One webmaster said:

There's definitely a lot of flux, and it's in the head terms. We're seeing a significant amount of one to three position drops. Luckily visits and sales are mostly unaffected, thanks to long-tails.
