    I just checked the SERP rank for my site and it is completely off the SERP for all pages. When i site:url my website is shows that it is still indexed. I was on the first page for my keyword?

    I didn't do any major changes to the site, anyone have this happen to them or know why this would happen?

    How old is your site?

    It happens all the time...the Google Dance...

    Just today I had a site return to page 1.
    It was page 1 for a long time last year. Then in November it dropped of the map.

    Now it's back...didn't do anything major on it during the period it was gone...just a couple of extra backlinks.

    I had my site on position 2 yesterday and today its at 550+ which is a little bit higher in the SERPS than i would hope for :)

    Fingers crossed it'll be back, weird as i haven't created any new backlinks or anything!
