    My wordpress blog I have with EMD at first was bouncing but then I added few "backlinks"( these aren't the normal type backlinks I know infact these are for example you have something.com/http://mywebsite.com (one person helped me)) Then I got first place on google for about a week for a nice keyword, but then it somehow dissapeared from google? it's not in any pages of google? What happened? What caused this? Please help.
    Thanks

    This can be effect of any Google update, penalization or major/strong backlinks were removed.

    It can also be due to you left working for your blog promotion.. for being on first position you need to maintain the ranking.

    This is quite normal for new sites. This is called a Google dance. If you have done some things that is against Google then it can be a penalty or your site has been sandboxed

    Hmm, how do I know if my site has been sandboxed? If I write www.mydomain.com in google my site is there, but its not for the specific keyword.

    try typing site: www.mydomain.com

    Or try linking your site to Google webmaster tool to see if its indexed.

    and when I type site:mydomain.com mykeyword my site is there too

    I really don't understand why did this happen? My wordpress blog is not there from 12 August was there any update in google then or something?
