    Hello everyone, a month and half ago i started a multiniche blog and gave the domain name some rare combination of two words in order to brand it, meaning the emd has no search value and no competition whatsoever. I started posting and few days later it ranked for the EMD kw easily. i started playing with webmaster tools, i submit an xml sitemap and redirected EMD.com to www.EMD.com with my host and .htaccess .
    now a month later it doesnt rank for that emd anymore nor the images on the site appear in image search for the emd "like it did before".

    I dont know what is the cause of this, i am sure i havent got penalized as i didnt build backlinks yet...

    Thanks for feedback everyone!

    Make sure the www.emd.com version has a sitemap submitted, you might have left it on the non-www version. WMT should tell you everything you need to know. Only other reason would be if you were using duplicate content, in which case they might just drop your rankings or deindex you.

    Have you done anything else other than redirecting non-www to www ? Try checking your site on Google using the following footprint: site:yoursite.com Is it still indexed?

    i wrote all the content myself nothing spun or outsourced, but there are like 3-4 images that i grabbed without editing and threw into the posts, it looks so trivial tho to cause a problem.
    Also i see all links of the website are indexed.

    One more thing the sitemap i submit is through a wordpress plugin, it is a dynamic sitemap that updates every time i make a post.

    You said that the site ranked without banklinks and that it is not very old right? New websites get a Newbie Bonus from google. They test out whether the content is good. If the site does not get the CTR and Backlinks they would expect they push it back so it does not rank anymore. Could this have happened? Also there is a chance that it is just a google dance if the site is pretty new.

    in my experience I only have a week or two before my site is stable..
    I have some EMD sites too.. It was ranking #19 in the keyword that I am targeting with no backlinks (only unique article) and then after I made some tier 1, my site was nowhere to find until 2 weeks. Unfortunately got a warning from instagram so I have to shut it down.

    I don't think sitemap would be the issue at all, perhaps the redirect + the age of your website caused it to dance.
    I would suggest that you install and check google webmaster tools for any warnings, If there are errors with your sitemap they should appear here. Also check where your website stands for your EMD domain, it doesn't appear at all in the top 30 results or is it just a lower rank?

    From what you have said, you have not been penalized.

    Sometimes EMD could rank so easily after it gets indexed, stay for a while and disappear again.

    What it means is?

    The keyword can easily be ranked for your term.

    Get quality backlinks...

    The emd has no search value it was just a test, each blog post targets a specific keyword and if i wanna build ill build to each one of my 20 posts, but what i need is backlinks that wont get my site penalized in the long term.
