I've only been trying to seriously do SEO for the last few months. Is this normal?
Nope, it is not.
Wait for one month ...
Ugh. Does it happen, though, or should I try investigating other possibilities?
Unless your site is now hosted in a "bad neighborhood", it will come back in the SERPs in a week or so.
"Fetch as Google" ===> "Submit to index"
Yea, the change may have just caused a drop. But if you're on shared hosting and someone's got some "bad" stuff on the same IP, it may have affected you. Give some time, keep building links and see what happens
It is normal, dont worry, we transfered several sites to a new host; and some of them - (there is no matter how old are they) its simply lost or deindexed for 1-2 days. After it they will appear again. (But sure awhile you are not dumb, and create a new sitemap and post some article to go for 100%
So it is just kinda a google game... Dont worry
Also if you are familiar with webmaster tools (I hope you are). There will be no problems.
Yeah, I actually created a new webmaster tools account just so I could get a closer insight into any potential problems. I had previously deleted it at the recommendation of others on this forum and simply used awstats.
My initial assumption was correct; it was just because of the hosting change and it's already bounced back. I checked out the ip reputation of my new host before moving over and everything looks clean.
Phew. I could barely sleep last night.
Isn't there a proper way to migrate sites while keeping SEO in mind?
Sounds like the server has been compromised and blacklisted. Contact the hose and move servers again to be sure.
Do not worry, just give it a week or so and it will rank again!
This is caused since you probably had a few hours or even a day or two of downtime... Just ping your site and wait 4-5 days works every time!
The shared hosting Ip may be associated with some bad or penalized content. Try getting a new ip from the host.
