    Hello guys,

    I have been working on my blog for while now.

    The domain name is clean and i have done no link buying or anything bad.

    I published a decent article of about 1600 words, with good seo scoring accoridnig to yoast plugin.

    I index it using google webmaster tools and within 24 hours it was ranking on the top of page two for the kw i was targeting.

    If i now search that KW my post does not even rank anywhere inside the top 100 results.

    any ideas? I feel very disappointed right now!

    My sites still ranks for other KW on various pages so i am sure google has not blacklisted me.

    Anything i can do other than wait and hope it ranks again soon?

    So you've not built any links yet?

    It's probably just doing a dance. I wouldn't worry.

    Hi,

    Please try to check on google site:yoursite.com. Check if this has been indexed correctly. Indexing usually takes time sometimes.

    Thanks.

    Completely normal. How long ago did you register the domain?

    normal behaviour. This happens with all new domains and websites. Give it time and keep blogging. Don't give up that easily. Rankings will be restored. Also do remember to write for people and not machines - don't worry about seo score that much but about experience.

    Regards,

    May be it's Google dance. You can't do anything for this except waiting for few days. It will settle down soon. Apart from that, if you build very low quality links, your site will rank down and sometimes goes to out of 100th rank. Check the spam links and remove them using Disavow tool.

    it is normal because when you post something new google put link in to almost at first or second pages and after that as per your weight of site link settle at as appropriate rank.

    It happens for most of the site. when they start doing SEO. It may be lost your ranking when you got very less CTR when compared to other sites listed along with yours.

    It’s just Google dance only. You just make sure you’ve done on page SEO properly, build quality links and keep waiting. Soon, you’ll get back your site rank on page 1.

    Check your on page SEO. If you have good metrics from your main domain, think about starting to add some internal links from other parts of your site. Start drip feeding some social signals to it. I don't know what the competityion of your KW is but if you do it right, you should rank in the top 100 without any link building - which you did. So, just start to get some strong backlinks to it and it'll come back up. Give it time though. Don't keep checking every couple of hours if it's changed. That will simply just drive you crazy.

    Thanks for all the replies guys!

    So far it's still not back in the top 100.

    I have not got any links to it, but have posted it my Facebook page and shared it in another page

    Have had about 440 post views.

    I just checked the post again in worldpress and yoast had a red spot up saying there was no page title, i must have messed it up somehow after publishing the post, so possible this is what caused the drop from page 2?

    Anyway i'll wait another 24 hours and see if i am ranking again.

    The KW is low comp monthly search of 10>100 pcp of like 0.11c

    Just take a breath, and add a title. Then write another post, repeat.
