I've a site that's been at #3 for around 7 months for something that's searched a lot. Now today I checked and it looks like a competitor website (same domain name but different tld) is above Me so I'm #4. But here's the weird part, the site has been hacked ! Although the website is as it always was,on google it says "hacked by ______" Along with this the website I have around 10 times as much articles as they do (that's what both sites use for Seo really). Backlinks are pretty much equal. Do you think this is permanent ? For all this time my site never has changed positions so i don't know what to do. This other website isn't exactly new,but my site is a bit older. My pageviews are already done a good bit but since under the other website it says "hacked by ____" I presume people wouldn't want to click on it.
