    Hi. My website is ranked with many keywords on google #1.
    Today I saw one of my keywords went from 1# to 0 and then from 0 to #93.
    Interesting fact is that this keyword dropped only on Google US.
    On Google UK and so on its still on #1.

    Do I have to worry anything?
    I mean why should this single keyword suddenly go to #93 ? It was on #1 for 4 months.

    Sounds like you may have over-targeted it in anchors. I've had this happen before. Re-evaluate your anchors and see if that term was too dense or not dense enough. Also check for negative SEO in that respect.

    The keyword density on my website is about 1,8%.
    I saw someone did neg. Seo to me, but didn't use this keyword as anchor.
    Did the keyword came back on spot 1 for you?
