    I have about 10 domains and it is really strange that all the sites does a google dance all the time at the same time.

    every few weeks all the sites starts getting traffic for some days. then the google dance starts again and the traffic minimize to -90%. after few weeks the sites are coming back stronger than before.

    why do all the sites loosing traffic the same time?

    should i delete my sites from google webmaster tools?

    p.s. most of them are 1+ old.

    - how old are your sites / domains ?
    - what are the pageranks of the domains?
    - how long does it take for Google to index a new post on your site(s)?
    - how many indexed pages (content) do these sites have?
    - what are the bounce rates of the pages that get the organic traffic?

    I may have an answer after you answer above.

    - between 0-1
    - about some minutes or hours
    - almost all pages are indexed

    "i dont know, i can see this in webmaster tools"
    you can check bounce rates in google analytics.

    "almost all pages are indexed"
    yeah, but how many (per site)?

    "about some minutes or hours"
    this is a good sign.

    I think the problem is about the sites' authority. If you dont have ridiculously high bounce rates (90% or more) my first advice would be to create authority by getting links from other authority sites (not software blasts)

    I'm sure many members will say software blasts will do fine but this is the way I know

    Check again. If you need help contact me.

    take care

    - i dont use analytics.
    - 90% off all pages of the sites are indexed

    I dont know this phanomen is makes me really down all the time. It is really strange that all domains loose traffic the same time :confused:

    first, I need a solid number of the indexed pages. not "most" not "90%"

    second, you must use some kind of stats software. be it analytics or something else. you cant just ignore data and pretend everything is ok.

    third, you've told that the index duration was a couple of hours max. but now you're telling that 90% of the pages are indexed. Whats wrong with the 10%? This is a pure sign of low authority.


    I'm not telling this is the only reason. Even I know a couple of other reasons for the dance. Just trying to help

    i use statcounter for my stats. i can see all the stats except the bounce rate.

    i cant tell you the indexed pages of all 10 domains but my best domain has 96 of 98 indexed pages.

    opensiteexplorer gives me a domain authority of 25/100 and a page authority of 36/100 for this domain.

    I'm not very familiar with seomoz grading system, but it's sure that you need more authority for stable rankings. This can happen naturally with time or you can get links from authority sites.

    To be honest I think big G is up to something big again, ALL my sites all dancing like crazy too and in a few second intervals.
    Also try to check your rankings using different browser. I'm a chrome fan my self (and I get almost the same results on Firefox and Safari) but IE is giving me some weird results lately.
    We should wait it out to see what's really going on

    guys, Google always "dances" the sites in the results to test them. If your site has low authority, then it will be less stable and will be more frequently replaced with other sites that are being tested.

    my two cents

    it is normal that one site is dancing. but all 10 sites of my g account at the same time? thats unnatural.

    I'm not telling you that there's no relation between the sites dancing. But I'm sure that right now there are a thousand webmasters complaining about google dance. Why wouldn't that happen to 10 of your sites? Besides all are "your" sites. That means you're probably doing the same things for all sites. Which supports the story, not disproves it.
