Anyone seen a significant drop in local finder rankings lately?

I had a client about 3 weeks back, who ranked in the top 4 consistently in the local finder and in local pack, just drop to a strange mixture of rankings fluctuating between 4-14. So weird.

Then, 2 days ago had another client in the top 10 consistently drop back in the 30's. Then today they dropped back to the 50's.

Also today had another client drop 20 spots in the local finder as well.

I have other clients holding strong in the local finder or increasing. It's weird.

Anyone else?

That does sound really odd. Have you made sure it's not related to the ranking tracker you're using being wrong? Or do you see them actually dropping as well when you check?
Yeah. The first thing I checked was that. In fact, I though to myself, "Sigh, rank tracker broke again".

Nope.

The only thing that was broken was my ranking. And consequently, my heart :(
