    Well, my site was ranking well.. my main keyword was #3 has been there for a while (sites is about 8 months old so not a paticularly new one) checked serps this morning and I have dropped to #9 ??
    worst thing is one of the sites ranked higher thasn me has no content, no back links..nothing! all i can say is WTF ??

    Also, there was a wiki page ranking well with mine, think is was #4..that has beek kicked to page 3..really dont know whats going on...

    any thoughts anyone...??

    mabey it is the g dance, who knows? its just strange how google uk shows over 6 million results where google us shows over 2 million. i could understand a bit of a difference in results but a 4 million difference is just weird

    We're talking about hot air here.... lately there are sites with 100k pages indexed since years that dropped to 7k pages, drops or increases of thousands positions in a day, keyword occurences going from a 1 million in a given moment to 10000 in another second, empty templates with just inbound links ranking in top 5 for the 4 keywords they contain. It is all googleDance, albeit it is not the dance (or the pagerank) system of 5 years ago.

    Sounds like the notorious google dance....keep building backlinks and you will rank even higher than #3 when you get back up.

    not only the dance guys but also when google uses a different datacenter affects the ranking for a short while

    It's been bouncing for a while man, i've got the same issue, nothing is solid at the moment. Perhaps now is the time to HAMMER backlinks as everything is moving anyway, so it's gonna maybe go under the radar? (hehehe yea i know, off the radar?! Not really suck a thing with the big G)

    Is the site above you with no content/links new?


    Most likely they will be given the special treatment that almost all new blogs/sites do.

    Top 10-20 for a week or three.


    Then BAM!


    Straight to 600th place or something.

    Don't stress about that one in particular. Just keep linkin' bud.

    Depends.... Not saying that this is the case, but, do you really think an 8 month old site with a thousand-something irrelevant backlinks is reasonable?

    When you compete for a keyword in a niche, you try to be slightly better in backlinks than the competition, not blow them out of the water. That's when Google blows the whistle.
