    Someone mentioned the other day that if you get sandboxed in G you go down in the rankings and then when you come out you pop back up at the top, not sure if it is this but it could be.

    @godmonkey - I thought sandboxed was "its over, you are not in the serps baby"

    I also noticed some brand new site with the keyword in the title has jumped right over us and has no PR or BL power.

    We have done:

    New - Page optimisation - Keyword page titles, Alt tags, Site map resubmit, directories ( slow ish ) bookmarking ( slow ish for lots of 50 for the keywords )

    Domain age is 5 years
    Traffic is highest in the niche with 70k uniques a month
    Loads of inner pages as its user generated pages
    PR was 4 and 5 - it varies.
    Backlinks 5k
    Social - 400
    EDU GOV - Yes
    DMOZ - No never list us
    Keyword in title - yes
    Keyword in URL - no
    Relevant to niche - high


    Very odd. And annoying, as it hints that google got pissed with us for making changes and promoting the site..

    We were like number 2 then 4 then 3 then 4 now like 8
