Hey guys, first post here. I'm working on a local business website that is 7 weeks old. It was ranking on page 11 days after launching the site. I claimed the Google Plus profile, and let it go about a week and it went to page 7. Over the course of the next 6 weeks I listed on a bunch of local directories...Superpages, Manta, Yelp, Facebook...etc. There are probably 40 or so of these listings with similar but unique descriptions, pictures, etc. with mostly nofollow links with the company name or urls. I also listed the site on 15 directly related to the niche and quality directories. Some of these links are followed but they are all the company name. I haven't used any anchor text other than the company name to this point. The site moved up to position #38 and #32 for both of my two main keywords before losings its rankings. The 2 targeted keywords are 3 words each. It is a 2 word company service that can end in "er" or "ing" and the town. I also targeted surrounding towns and the homepage was ranking well (page 7-8 for those also). I made a really minor update to the website (linked to a relevant/authority article) and have done this numerous times before the day before I lost rankings for the 2 main keywords. The homepage disappeared from the results for (company service) (main targeted town) but a subpages ranked at pages 11 and 12. The homepage continued to rank for (company service) (surrounding town) and about 8 or 9 other long tail keywords I was targeting. The exact match keywords are never used together in the body text although all three words are used throughout. One version of the company service had a keyword density of just of 4%. I have close to an exact match for one of the keywords in the H1 and an exact match for the other as the Page Title. I am thinking I tripped some sort of algorithimic filter from stuffing those 3 word keywords. No messages in WMT and I'm confident it isn't a linking issue. I didn't think it was a Google Dance as it doesn't really behave like others have described it. The company name has the service in it which made it more difficult with the density but am thinking of adding text to the homepage to dilute and go more longtail on the H1 and Title. Has anyone else experienced this? Any input would be appreciated!
