    Google is very.fucking.weird. at the moment.
    Earlier today I did a quick Google search for one of my keywords where my recent high ranking site was slapped back to #508+

    Sitting pretty at #6 on page 1 is a result from an old domain of mine that still has a totally empty account on my hosting, that has been abandoned for many moons.

    It's even indexed with a description of...
    Index of / .ftpquota ยท cgi-bin/. Apache Server at www.XXXXXXXXXXXXX.co.uk Port 80.

    This is a pretty hard keyword to rank for with high competition.
    The domain has no content on it whatsoever. The only folders are the CGI folder and a file for ftpquota.

    How did I manage to rank a keyword on a site that has no content at all, not even an index page and no SEO efforts whatsoever for about 10 months now ?

    **Edit**
    Forgot to add that this abandoned domain was slapped back to the dark ages long ago, this is the reason it was abandoned.

    You cannot control a lot about it. I will strongly recommend you to diversify your income sources and thus do not depend entirely on Google.

    one of my sites (100%white hat, with only whitehat backlinks, 4 years old with over 600 unique pages) has been dancing like hell over the last 8 days. one day the traffic from google is 3500 uvs per day, the next day it falls to 67 uvs, and again there is a raise in ranking. Every other day it happened.

    And like someone above said, there are some empty sites (don't even have a homepage) are ranking in the first page at times. This is ridiculous, but I have moved on and not relying on google any more. If traffic comes from google it is just a bonus for me.

    Im on my way to being 100% free of reliance on them now. Once I am happy with my income - I am going to block google from my domains. Im fucking sick of them - and to be honest - they dont deserve my content.

    I've been thinking about doing the same on some of my sites. My highest traffic site gets 28% of its traffic from search. Most visitors are direct and referrals from links. An organized effort to do this with many participants would be a good way to go IMO. Follow up with a good PR distribution noting a boycott of Google, even if its temporary.
