    experienced sudden drop in google ranking from page 2 to page 9 in a day,what can it be?
    I have no message in GWM,site is still indexed
    Not much competition for the target keyword,still the huge drop

    I could see the site coming up to 4 then slowly to top of page 4 ,the to page three,and yesterday it was on top of page 3,and suddenly i could see the fluctuation.It went on page 7 top,then to down on page 7 ,then on page 8 and so.

    What could it possibly be...i have been building consistent links from few days for it...and was hoping to get rank 1 since it is not that competitive keyword...also i have good links good than the one who is ranking 1:(.

    what should i do,please suggest i am new to SEO and and experienced this for first time

    All keywords dropped or just some keywords?
    Also check for any new incoming backlinks on ahrefs and majestic, also check anchors maybe you overoptimized.

    put the url into ahrefs.com and search the domain, it will tell you what percentage the kw density is.

    What's happening to your site is called a Google dance.

    may be you were spying other site and google thought you don't like the site which is not being clicked (yours), so it is showing to you only. Do you have rank tracker. I don't know, just a thought.

    Thought it could be a Penguin. But I checked my websites and everything is stable, so I guess it's just a dance. Give it a while. You should be afraid when you are at the same position for 1-2 months and the rankings drop after - this is scary and this is penalization.
