    Hi there,
    I'm new in SEO and MMO. I did make a site to practice about SEO and get some money from ADS. I use Autoblog to get content for my site and edit a little bit before posting. My keyword is not high competition and I get a good rank with 2 key work. #2 and #31. Its not really give me traffic thought it because it's not a good keyword. But it makes me happy when I can see my site on top google ^^!.
    This morning I checked and my site on still its own rank. But now, it's gone :eek::eek::eek:. After checking I see that 2 keyword is lost rank and I dun know why, it goes to #605 and #625 :(( I can't believe that. I just boots some traffic with some socks and proxy.
    Someone can tell me what did happen with my site and how to fix it.
    Thank you so much.

    Google's always hated auto-blogs. And that last Panda update really put a lot of stress on having fresh, new, original content. Just a hunch, but maybe what happened is that your site got reviewed by a Google Rater (like me) and it got demoted for being an auto-blog. Maybe you should try turning your site into something with original content?

    How old is your site?

    Actually there may not even be anything to worry about. Before you start panicking wait at least a few days. Sometimes even terms that have been ranking well long term drop off temporarily. I recently had a site with a couple of nice terms ranking at #1 and #2 for months just drop off a cliff for a week even though I had not been doing any linking building recently, then all of a sudden they were back to where they were without me doing anything to bring them back.

    Sometimes your rankings will fluctuate which is why you should try and pay attention to long term trends and not stress over those daily changes.

    It's probably the Google dance.......or Google has indexed more links to your site and doesn't like what they see so far.

    Add more original content and more high quality links. Keep things moving. Don't stand still.

    I just remember that I did change something on my site and I'm not sure that whether it make google crazy or not. I change Description and Title of my site to improve a new keywork that I want to rank for. And change all slug category to a new keyword.
    It like "mysite.com/keyword/title-of-post/".
    All my category have same slug category and I dun know it's good or not. I just think that it will help for SEO my keyword. Someone know about it please explain it to me, should a change back to before. ????
    Thank you.

    Yes changing those things can affect your rankings. If you did a better job of optimizing the page for your keyword the long term results will probably be better but short term you could bounce around a bit while Google digests the new info.

    Generally if I have a page that is ranking well that I want to change, I make small changes over time instead of changing everything at once. The better the page is doing the more careful you want to treat it both with on page changes and off page backlinking.

    It can be that the ranking data is just propagating through the google servers or the google dance. But if after a few days it is still not back to normal what I would do is to remove the auto blogs and start putting in quality content. Well its just my opinion if I was in your shoes.

    Anything you want to learn and $100 an hour, cash and in small bills.

    Seriously dude you are going about it all wrong. You have been a member of the forum for 6 months. There is a huge amount of information here and in that amount of time you should have been able to learn a huge amount for free just by reading and maybe taking some notes.

    If you had spent just an hour a day the last six months you would have learned a lot. Nobody is really going to be able to "teach" you anything you are going to have to learn. If you have specific questions you will find plenty of people willing to answer them but nobody is going to be able to just teach you seo.

    Probably a dance. Build more high pr backlinks to it, wait ard 1 to 2 weeks and it might bounce back maybe better position.

    Have a new site less than 1 mth old, was ranking 28 for a medium competitive term and after it danced for about few days went to spot 13.

    Keep building quality links and rankings will go up.

    There are so many factors which could lead to something like this. First of all the duplicate content. Second, linkbuilding speed. Third, changes in the internal linking. It's hard to say which of these factors caused the penalty without knowing the exact things you did before.

    IMO, i think you should drop the site and move into new ones. Suddenly dropped to #600 is not a good sign. And from my own experience, there is little chance that it can go up again.

    It's probably the 'google dance' like many are saying above. Plus i think i read above that you changed the title and description. Those things actually are used to index your site and rank you for your target keywords, so changing those change your target keywords.

    The best thing is not to change them once it's ranked, but increase your backlinks. Mainly quality backlinks.

    Hope that helps
