    So I got my site on the the 5th position on Google's first page for my 'Hard' keyword..

    It was on about page 2 or 3 for it's other two keywords.

    Now everyday it looses one position and the other two keywords are now not even in the top 100..

    Should I just add more content and build more links? The site only has 4 pages but it's got about 8,000 words of unique good content..

    Have just bought some high PR home page links so maybe it's dancing? What do you think? I have also recently blasted my bottom tier of links (link pyramid) with about 25k Scrapebox.. maybe that's having an effect?

    Thoughts?

    SEO is an ever changing guessing game... nobody can ever give you the exact reason but they can give you a pretty good idea...

    My own guess would be a dance also, just keep hitting your tier 2 once a week or drip feed and let them come back gradually.

    There's so many variable at play with google, nobody can say, but it's too soon to start worrying about it anyway.

    If you are building massive backlinks stop and just slowly add back links and ping only a few of those back links and little everything come in naturally.

    Common wake up!

    You dethroned someone from their spot and you think they would not try to fight back. SEO is a 24/7 game and their is nothing like i am number one, two, or three ... permanently.

    Continue what got you to your position and create more content. Your goal should be number one.

    SEO is constant war and as soon as you get to the top, everyone is taking shots at you.

    Hey thanks for the wake up call! Actually needed it! I was sort of wafting around thinking should I do this, should I do that.. You're right, I guess I'll just do what I did already to get to the position I'm at now again.. And add more content to my site..!

    haha lucky for you that it jumps between 1 and 4
    if it jumped between 1 and 2 I'd suspect you had a homo site in your hands!

    Probably what most say/think, but I think it natural for your rank to jump around. Also, from what I gather, it's not wise to be too active with building backlinks. From what I understand, that can actually hurt you these days...?

    I've got something I am testing out, which I will bring up in a thread when I get it all worked out. Real simple, which doesn't require using things such as scrapebox, and its effective.

    I experienced something like this, it's not a dance because dance will have ups and down but this case, the site just drop and drop. I think it could be a penalty of over optimized or keyword stuffing in your backlink. My advice is to build more backlinks that appear to be natural with variation of anchor text and also add more related content to your site. Be prepared to wait for a long time to see the site come back.

    Good luck

    If your site is continuously dropping down then you have to be more careful and try to builds more backlink and content should be more unique.

    If you see dancing, that means you're doing something significant and something right. Just be sure to add more content to your site. Include pictures and videos in some of your content.

    You might also want to get some links using related terms to your keyword, just to look natural. for example:

    leather shoes (main key word) also get some contextual links using

    white leather shoes

    leather shoes to like etc

    Google is a snake and as soon as you have it cornered, it gets bigger and smarter. The snake must eat and the best food will always be:

    unique contents on your site and make sure it is readable

    contents with pictures, graphs if possible and videos

    Backlinks and lots of different types of backlinks depending on your keywords.

    Do not be fooled thinking the big sites do not do backlinking. They all do and they have the huge budgets to see it through.
