I do tons of SEO for clients and know all about the Google dance. However, all the sites I own are all purely my own or client's own products and/or services. I am just testing the waters with some new affiliate programs for the simplicity of not having to provide any customer service. I went through about 500 well converting offers and looked through several thousand high traffic exact search keywords related to them. I then found some super easy high traffic keywords which highly matched the offer. A lot of the offers are disjointed with one another so I have no interest in setting up a site, building a list, etc and all the usual WF type of newbie stuff. It's mostly for testing which offers convert anyways before I scale up to that nature. Previously I have never used web 2.0s for anything other than trying to build links to a website I own or work for. The first offer I tested I used a slideshare document. It's about 500 words of unique original valuable content with 3 links all cloaked. I used slideshare because I wanted images very similar in nature to the landing page to really boost conversions and in general, document sites tend to rank highly. This particular offer was a CPA offer with 9900 exact monthly searches. After a pretty large SEnuke blast with really well spun readable content, it was ranking #3 and pulling in roughly $40/day. However, after a week, the site is doing what appears to be a major Google dance dropping out of the top 200 for most of its terms while still staying indexed. I'm a little confused since slideshare documents aren't even part of a subdomain. My question after all of this is can an individual page on an authority domain experience a major Google dance? How about other web 2.0 properties?
