    I had a site on the front page for the past two months for 4 keywords and they were #1 for about the past month. Two days ago they dropped in yahoo rankings from #1 to #3 and today in Google they dropped from #1 to #20-#30.
    I haven't done any recent backlinking and even when I first started the site I was higher than rank 30. I was immediately put at #15. I'm hoping this is most likely temporary. Anybody have any idea what could cause this?

    Both Yahoo and Google did this within a day of each other?

    Maybe someone spam blasted your site.

    I think this may be perminent. Backlinks seem to take a lot longer to be detected as well. My guess is it's to discourage automated backlinks - Xrumer, SB etc

    I want to point out I did not do anytihng with xrumer and I did do a scrapebox blast a few months ago which dropped me off the front page but I believe I recovered and took the #1 spot.

    Dropped down to the 40s now. I hope this is only a minor hiccup
