    A landing page on my domain was ranked 6, then in dropped to 40, then it disappeared from the top 100 all in just 5 days.

    What happened? All my other pages are still ranked. No on site black hat techniques are used.

    How long has it been ranked? You're probably just experiencing some changes in your ranking. Sounds like a little dance. Chances are, you'll be back up top in a week or two.

    Dance?

    It was ranking first page for about 10 days. Maybe some backlinks died out?

    It's typical for your page to move up and down in the rankings while Google decides where to put it (semi) permanently.

    Some of your links could have died out, but chances are you'll be back in the vicinity of where you were in a few days.

    Keep doing what you've been doing, and give it a week or 2.

    Hmmm... could be. Sort of like the "reverse scrapebox" I read about.
