    Hi,

    Just did a blog post a few days ago, it was ranking on page 4 all by itself with no SEO and then it just totally fell out of the SERPS a few days ago. Do you have any idea about this phenomenon? Don't reckon it was a neg SEO attack.

    Thanks

    new pages get a bonus that is fleeting... then the page has to be supported by backlinks and search term relevance... nice rankings when something is new should always be viewed as temporary. Don't go nuts on backlinks. Quite often all you need is 10-15 for a post to get to page 1. If all your posts had 10 or so backlinks using your target search term for the post then you would most likely be doing better than most bloggers.

    In the industry, this is referred to as the Google Honeymoon Effect. It also relates to Google's freshness algorithm, which pushes newer content to the top of the SERPs. This is done so things like breaking news stories for a given query rank well right away and then trail off if no one links to them. It's more pronounced in easy niches where it takes zero to "some" backlinks to rank.

    It also depends on the competition too, may be if your niche is less competitive so your posts are likely to rank well.

    you just got outranked by the competition, build some high PR links and it will start ranking again. It just needs a push.

    Build some backlinks to it and it should rise again, try to do it consistently over time rather than a one big wallop, this will help you rank over time

    There may be many reasons. If you show the site, we could talk more specifically.

    It happens like that for new site but won't stick on the SERP because it's still new with no backlinks.

    What it means is, with some little quality backlinks you could be on the very top of Google for that keyword.

    It's often a less competitive one.

    Sites disappear and reappear within a day or two all the time. Don't fret.

    Now, more than ever you need to have more patience and faith. Ranks are not so easy to keep anymore!
