    One keyword I'm working on for a collection page moved from position 15 to 18 then 27. Any ideas why this would happen?

    The only change with the page I made is adding one if the money keywords in the title a month ago. It originally had one. Should I keep the title shorter to just one keyword?

    Not sure why that had that drop. My other keywords such as with my home page haven't had a drop like that.

    Thanks

    Google has over 200 ranking factors.

    Any one of them could have caused this.

    I've had pages rank in the top 10 for keywords I only mention 1 time on the page then after 1 month google completely knocks it off the map.

    Just keep doing SEO and it will go up.

    More than likely just a dance; monitor and see where the keyword is in say a weeks time.
    Don't stop doing seo on the site though.

    Thanks. I did wonder if maybe I should keep the page title shorter. It has the keyword once in description and once in the title. I can't imagine that would trigger a penalty though who knows.

    I got a few nice links this month one natural one even from a big site. I'll certainly keep doing SEO and see if that keyword goes back up later.
