I signed in with a colleague's Google Account to check out some stats, and apparently I didn't sign out last night. Checked that ranking in question this morning, and yes, page 3 as he reports from his office. Signed out of his G Account this morning. Checked, site in question is now position 4 on page 1. I'm not signed in with any google account right now. AND the company's adwords ad is consistently blue-boxed, position one when I check. So, seriously, this is weird, how the Google Account would affect the ranking. I swear Google's keeping tabs on me, maybe watching me through my iSight camera...and laughing.

Personalized Search orders your search results based on what you've searched for in the past. Early on, you may not notice a huge impact on your search results, but they will continue to improve over time as you use Google.
I believe that if you are signed in to Google, any Google service, this option is turned on by default. You can turn it off if you would prefer to get "standard" search results.
This is one more reason why not to obsess about rankings. In a personal search world, everybody's rankings can be different!

I have now thrown a towel over my iSight. Take THAT Google!

Side-note: Qwerty, sorry I missed your clue this morning before I posted. Looks like you were way ahead of me.

Why was it major? Did it bring them more traffic? More conversions?
If not, then it's not important. If so, then yes, it is important, but only in the fact that it did its job to make a conversion.
Rankings in and of themselves are meaningless unless they lead to another goal.
And since rankings will be different every time you look at them, you're much better off to simply use the end goal as your measurement and skip the middle man.
