    I made a website, using the keywords in the URL as the keyword I was wanting to target... this was back in November.

    My site made the first page inside a week and stayed there for a few days. It then dropped to page 3, then dropped way, way back way off the scale, so it was getting zero visitors.

    I now look and since the 1st January, it's ranked 2nd (behind an Amazon link) and is getting quite a bit of traffic.

    Do you think the Caffeine system was the reason, or is it just what seems to happen to new websites - they disappear down the ranks for a while, but then in 2-3 weeks settle in a certain position?

    Quite bizarre.

    that was the "google dance" and it happens to most every new site. you'll probably stick at 2nd place now so congrats! :)

    Cheers for the replies. It's what I assumed, but I always like confirmation to make me truly believe it lol.
