    Was wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else besides myself. My site was working it's way up through the serps and was recently holding down the #3 spot in Google and now it's no where to be found.

    Would this just be part of the dance or should I worry?

    I had a similiar experience. It's all part of the game. Just keep building relevant backlinks to your site. And add new content to your site as well. After 6-12 months the rankings should be more stable in my experience.

    It depends, is it a new site? If so - it could be "fresh site" effect, which is normal.

    I wouldn't worry too much unless you've done something that should make you worry... otherwise its a pretty normal effect. Had it happen to me just a few weeks ago... completely de-indexed... about a week or so later it came back to a good position.

    This is almost certainly the Google Dance (especially if it is a new site). Do NOT stop pushing out backlinks! Your site WILL come back to the SERPs, and if you keep keep building backlinks, it will have a VERY strong position when it returns!

    My site was #4 with about 30 backlinks after a week. I added about 20 backlinks the next day with scrapebox, gone from the rankins, added 5 more the next day, then the next day pinged all of googles pinging addresses and by the time I got home from school (about 5 hours later) I was back at #4.

    Might just be some weird coincidence, but keep building links at a natural pace, and then let google know your still there. Worked for me at least.

    As I've undersood, there is a "fresh site effect" - a new site appearing in good positions in SERPs, and then (in the next pr update cycle), goes off. It seems, that it is a normal process of site ranking (I imagine, how much work there is to be done for G to calculate correct ranking of site - probably a lot of iterations).
    This is exactly where I am now. One of my new sites (not autoblogs) - ~1month old, that I am working on now (actually,learning/experimenting) - went to 13position on main keywords. About 3-4 days ago it disappeared completely, while still being indexed (site:www.site.com shows about 200pages). Well... I keep working on it.
    Practice makes perfect...

    I have the same problem, bouncing from about pos 2, then to no where (actual between 500 - 600).
    The site stays low in the serps for up to 10 days and then comes back for one or two days.....Then gone again.

    Been like this for nearly 3 months now
