    Home Page:
    my traffic has been on a constant 20 visits a day despite all my seo efforts. I've been with a seo company for 3 months and all of a sudden my traffic jumped to 700 visits a day, mostly from google from my target keywords which were suddenly ranking in the top 7 for all of my 3 keywords.

    however, this only lasted a few days. Now im down to 30-40 visits a day for the last 3 days.

    I've checked my SERP in the last 72 hours and this is the results i've got for my 3 main keywords, along with my EMD search.

    Date, Hour: keyword1/keyword2/keyword3 EMD:Exact Domain Match Search

    15 june, 22h37: 65/64/49 EMD:27
    16 june, 17h54: 37/48/51 EMD:19
    17 june, 02h36: 48/48/64 EMD:32
    17 june, 13h54: 66/51/63 EMD:32
    17 june: 19h02: 71/62/75 EMD:33

    Is this a google dance? will my rankings set back to top 10 when it's settled down? how long do google dances last?

    A lot of sites are bouncing around at the moment. I'd wait to draw any conclusions on your ranks.

    I've got a 3 week old EMD I had at #5 through relevant comments and a press release - then I bought some major services, it's now no-where to be seen. Probably temporary.

    Try this.. copy paste the first paragraph of your site to google and search for it.. if your site comes first, most probably its a dance, if your site is no where to be found or not ranking for your first paragraph.. most probably it's a penalty.

    I read this somewhere here in BHW.. and tried it to my sites and its pretty much correct.

    Yes I agree with testdrive. It might be a good method whether it's google dance or penalty.
