    Approxiamtely 7 keywords dropped off into space today on both yahoo and bing (never ranked on google). This all happened at the same time. Any ideas what may have caused it after ranking really high for over a month?

    You don't provide enough info for anyone to make even an educated guess.

    It was one site, the keyword had fairly high competiton. Suprisingly even though about 8 keywords were ranked, my main income maker strangely though my main money makerwas ranked 7 on yahoo, pulling upwards of 150 a day (which was fine by me) and nothing else was ranked on the G. I have been doing typical backlinking moving slowly sometimes dropping a spot but coming back up. Checked today and they were all completely gone, but am still indexed.

    Any recent backlinking campaigns have been found, or any significant growth in duplicate content? Meta tags were changed, onsite link format or even a "www to non-www or reverse" change?

    Seriously, there are lots of things possible, please be more specific!

    People will probably say "it´s just a dance, it´s just a dance" and might be, but it won´t hurt to dig into the case to see if it was your mistake of any kind to not repeat it in the future. Give a further look into things and provide us more info to judge.

    I believe they do, my serps were about the same on both and dropped to nothing at the same time.

    No duplicate content no tag changed. I did some backlinking while over a week ago but never saw it move so drastically. It looks like it pops up to where it was for an hour or two each day then back to nothing again. Even though number one is obviously where I want to be I was still making enough of a positon 7 spot to satisfy me, for now ;)

    Trying to come up with a reason why this happened still, could I have been bowled or spammed out by my competition?
