    anybody experiencing this? I have a site that was ranked quite well (5th) in its main keyword and 7th in its secondary keyword but then it went down to rank 500th or so for a month. I thought it was sandbox or something because it went up again last week back to its original positions. However now it's back downhill to rank 400th...

    this is not my only experience with SEO, i have another 2 sites which experiencing the very similar google dance. Is it because I use link push and scrapebox blast? :eek: but I don't use SB to my main site, i use it to my dummy site which I link to my money site (but seems my money site gets affected as well). What to do?

    yeah but to be honest im tired of this situation because i was ranked quite well last november then "died" in december and mid january before it bounced back to even better position than november...but unfortunately it only lasted a week....do you think i should continue building links here or wait until it's back? because i didn't put new links when it was the first time dropped to rank 400th...

    Thats called the google dance, your ranks tend to jump up and down for a few weeks before eventually finding its stable position

    It's not google dance. You probably made some links and got them indexed. Google saw them and awarded you.

    Then Most Probably you never cared to make "backlinks to your backlinks", so Google came to know that backlinks to your site were not so important/natural, so the ranks dropped:)

    This is why I don't use google anymore.

    Go with traffic exchanges like 2leep.com , zaparena.com , mgid.com , etc

    You need some initial traffic and that can come from google trends.
