I finally built a site that was making decent money anywhere from $40-80 a day (non-adsense). I've been trying to rank for "kw1 kw2 kw3" which has 1600 exact searches a month and I was getting good traffic, around 300-500 people a day. I built the site on the 8th of this month and have had 2 day period where my site drop out of Google completely for 2-3 days, I was backlinking and knew this was the dance. Site comes back and everything is honky-dohry About 36 hours ago I was surprised to see that I was number 2 for "kw1 kw2" which get's 165k searches a month, needless to say my traffic exploded, I hit over 1200 unique visitors today and made some nice $. Then the reason for this post. I just ran traffic traffic and I'm completely gone.....again! I manually searched all the pages of G because Traffic Travis v4 sucks and can't update and there I saw my glorious site sitting in the middle of the 68th page, it's titles and description begging to be clicked so the customer could land on my beautify designed site that I poured my heart and soul into.....for about an hour haha, no joke though, it looks good. I'm sure this is another dance but my stress level with this one site is killing me, I just want it to stay put. I have done manual backlinking for this one as I was lucky to get an EMD for the search term and wanted to make sure this site was prefect, my efforts paid off nice already but I just want the bounce to stop. Anyways, if you made it this far in my post congrats, I'm just frustrated and explaining this to the one friend in ear shot who knows nothing about SEO means this is the only place I can speak my frustration out! P.s I've screwed up a few sites in the past, meaning that they never came back from a big drop. However this one went to page 68, which is not like being dropped to position 50. So would you guys say this is indeed the dance (I've been doing high pr (3-7) manual blog comments and web 2.0 sites) or does that big of a hit sound like just like that, a "hit"?
