    Sold out = dead ranks. It takes a while to happen, but if you're sold out long enough, it will.

    G is probably monitoring the bounce rate. Once you get the item back in, give the site a few link blasts to poke G into raising it up. After they see that people aren't immediately leaving the site anymore, it should be easier to get your rank to stick again.

    Still, sometimes G is super-obstinate and will ignore some of my no-longer-sold-out pages for months...

    No - I can never bring myself to trust G enough to put their tracking right on my site...

    How bizarre is this forum becoming.
    Replying to a thread which is over 4 years old!
