    So I just checked my adsense account, and found a new click from a very new niche site

    so then I google'd my KW and there I was, page 1, number 10, 1 visitor one click :)


    not 5 minutes went by, I googled again, and pooof I'm back to page 5

    Google Dance? Dumb Luck? What Happened?

    Also, when I was on page 1, the competition result numbers 2-8 were completely different to.....any ideas why?

    yup your dancing mate, my MNS site was hitting top 10 when it first went live, after i installed analytics it dropped to page 3!! its been there ever since, got some backlinking done and now its moving again, and no it wasnt because of analytics, it was because the site was dancing, so dont worry, start backlinking and you will regain your position.

    Is pretty normal for a new websites keyword rankings to bounce around before finally settling

    yes, new websites take a while to settle. Initially they are in sandbox, When you saw it on first page it was a initial stage and when Google calculated all its page rank parameters and refreshed the rankings(which it must be doing in a while) it was taken to page 5.
