    Hi,

    my main site was ranked on #1 for 3 keywords before and now I ranked two more keywords which have about 20k MS and another keyword which has about 60k Monthly Searches is on page 1 at 5th place. But I don't see any changes in traffic during the last few days. Actually the traffic is a little bit less than few weeks ago.
    I checked if they are REALLY ranked also visited the serps to check it and they are really on 1th place.

    what is that? normally it should be expected to get much more traffic...

    Maybe they're keywords where most of the traffic click on Adwords ads (placed above the SERPs). Or for some reason visitors skip your site and click on #2. Or, the monthly search figures are just plain wrong (maybe they're seasonal in nature?).

    I just saw that my website got deindexed by itself (the sitemap changed by itself somehow, so that there are no posts in it, only static pages) and from 28 pages/posts, only 8 were indexed. Maybe it has something to do with that.

    Yes seems like that would obviously have an impact.

    You sure the figures are correct? You should definitely be seeing some traffic increase at those volumes, even if your site description is not appealing to searchers...

    Yeah that happens.

    CTR plays a big part in this.

    Go back and change the meta title/description for your ranked keywords, to make them almost like ads, try to improve their CTR.

    yes, thats really strange imo. actually my meta description and title are doing fine. I will just wait and see how it goes. I was really wondering when I saw the visitor stats of the past 3 days...

    I'm using serpbook to track it.
    Well, we will see how it goes in the next few days.

    May be there are some problems in checking your SERP rankings for your keywords.

    Correct all of your onpage factors, and do more to improve your CTR through better titles and meta descriptions.
