    I have a site which is trying to compete for an average keyword, not too hard, but not too easy. It went from page 2 to page 1 last week, and today I did some work on it, I tried adding some geo-tags to it since it's geographically targeted. targeted... and created a few thousand profile links (that haven't been indexed yet). Google just re-cached/visited my website, and the rank dropped about 30 places, it's on page 4 now... any ideas why? :S What should I do?

    Well this site's only a few weeks old, but I was mainly wondering if it was the geo tags that messed me up, the competition's been the same, I jumped 3 ranks yesterday (to 1st page), then I lost 30 ranks today, so I'm kinda worried

    Once you get more used to putting sites out there, you'll welcome sudden drops in ranking like this. :)

    Sudden drops... not sudden de-indexing.

    Its called the Google Dance, in a few days you should usually come out higher than before or a little lower than before. Its just in the process in evaluating your site.
    I hope I helped you ;)
