    Have anyone else seen this lately, that your rankings are slowly but steadily dropping? Drops are not sitewide and usually those that have most searches are the ones falling. This is happening on multiple sites with different link building techniques. Any ideas?

    Could just be you losing links, competitor gaining links, or a mix of both.

    Yes and Yes. Lets put it like this - I'm doing everything I've done whole year, but just now (basically after latest Google updates) the rankings have been dropping slowly.

    Could be your competitors are getting better backlinks etc.
    Have you checked out their site for their linking methods / sources ?

    Can happen that some of the backlinks you added a while ago are reconsidered as spam by Google, so check that.

    It will happen when your competitor gaining more links and check your backlinks too. If any links have been broken, these kinds of drops will happen, find and fix those links. Build some more quality links to gain your rankings.

    Maybe. How would you go actually checking that?

    I'm pretty sure it's not about competitors gaining backlinks or doing neg seo.

    Several factors to consider, account for link loss and anchor over optimization as well.
