    Hi,

    I started a blog from 2012-11-07 with low competition, long tail keywords.

    At first, as I added more articles, I got more traffic (good sign). But suddenly, about on 2013-01-02, I lost almost all my rankings and traffic dropped to 10~20 visitors per day.

    In GWT, I did not receive any warning message, my ranking just disappeared.

    Over the past month, I continue building more backlinks, but it seems don?t help my ranking.

    Have you ever encountered this kind of problems? How did you do with that?

    Please give me some suggestions.

    P.S. Please forgive my poor English.

    This is typically called a google dance or bouncing. It's normal for a new site to bounce out of the SERPs and then back in. Sometimes it can take a few days othertimes it will take 3 months.

    Yep, most likely Google Dance. One of my exact match sites disappeared from #1 this morning because I started working on some more web 2.0's after a long time.

    But Google has been pretty random this year with indexing and rankings. Maybe on a period? I don't know.

I now have to log in everyday to stumble upon or orther bookmarking sites to get at least 1k views daily whereas in the past i ll just make 1 post and relax only to check stats in the evening and see over 10k views daily. I feel like crying as i dont know what to do and i need help. Somebody ? Anybody ?

    It' been 1 month since one of my biggest projects entered in Google Dance and I feel your pain :) fortunately, if you content is fine and the backlinking is not crazy, you will get back.

    That is why I ask suggestions here. I hope it drops just because of Google dance.

    I have some websites drop their rankings and never come back and actually don't know what and how to solve this problem.

    I really hope we can find or someone can give us answers here.

    Yes, I hope it will get back. All my content are outsourced and unique. I also build backlinks for this website slowly. All of us have the same problems. Please update if you have any new ideas or get back your rankings.

    There was no major update on 2013-01-02 So it must be Google dancing. Start adding quality content, build only quality link. Hope you will get your rank back!
