    I had a site on page 8 now it's not on any page for the keyword why does it disappear? Do the links have negative points or something?

    In addition to Google dance....If your changes drastically alter the keyword context from the previous version then Google needs to fully process everything again to figure out what keywords your page should rank for. So the scope of the changes made can trigger this. But the good news in this case is that at least you know Google is working on it and you just need to wait a little to see the effects of the change. I've seen it take as long as 22 days for Google to process a page change. That is pretty much a worst case scenario. The best case is about 24 hours for indexed sites with a healthy crawl budget.

    By "work them" do you mean do SEO or do you mean update the site's design/content? SEO is the Google Dance, and when you redesign or upgrade content you get a similar dance while Google decides how relevant the new design/content is.

    Especially if your site didn't have too many links, then any backlink is a huge change in the eyes of Google. So the algorithm is trying to adjust your site and find it a new position based on all the factors. Completely natural and nothing to worry about.
