    My article was on the 5th place, I decided to change article name because it was not to specific. So now I have different permalink and I made 301 redirect from old to new one. This happened few days ago. The problem is that I can't find my article on google anymore, there are just link with tag on 7th place.
    Also I expand my article and I include my focus keyword on more places so now I have word density 1.9%. This is not the first time that I make some changes but I never changed link or article name and I never had situation where I can't find my article on google.
    Is this ok, should I be worried?

    This is not good for the promotion of your site (at least of the article) once Google has scanned and previously moved to the article and you upload it again with a change (link or article) that hits its promotion:(

    The ranking do disappear when you change the permalink but it comes back later. You should give it some time

    It is perfectly normal. I also changed my permalinks to reflect postname. The posts disappeared for sometime then came back at better rankings

    Just normal, new rankings depends on the modification quality. GL :)

    it could take a few more days for google to find your new page and properly index it; it depends also on the authority of your site, a new site could take longer than an established one.
