by 5 comments
I keep getting ranked for my content on the first page of google and then my article or squidoo lens or hub just dissapear from not only the first page but from all the pages. I can't find it after a while.Then on the other hand I have some content that stays on page one and doesn't fluctuate.Now I have heard about something called the google dance. Can somebody pls explain to me what the google dance is and why my content just dissapear?It seems to me I might get penalized for something and can't figure out why.

Thanks in advance

      Thanks for the explanation, It doesnt seem like it's the google dance that's affecting my page ranking.

    This is sometimes called the "Rank & Tank" syndrome.

    Some view it as a positive indicator that Google may, in time, give you some excellent traction for that search phrase. Authority, links and your schedule of virgin sacrifices play a role in how long you rank before or if you will "tank".

    Don't be surprised if it comes back in a few weeks in good position. Don't be reactive about it. Build some quality links to your page and be patient.

      You really have to understand back links and how the quality of back links affects your Google ranking.

      If you put a new page on Squidoo when you put it up it's linked from a high quality page (because it's new content).

      But after a while your new content is no longer linked to from that page.

      Google sees this as a reduction in the importance of the content (it's lost a good back link) and adjusts its ranking for your page accordingly.

      That's why you can get such good rankings so fast with sites like these but often they quickly drop off the Google rankings very fast too.

      The pages that stick in the Google rankings will usually have at least one or several of these attributes:

      # Targeting a keyword phrase with little or no real competition (then backlinks don't matter. Once you're indexed your page is the only game in town so it maintains a high ranking).

      # Picking up backlinks from other quality sites or pages. Often a good lens page will get sites linking to you and just one good quality link is often enough to keep you ranked high on Google.

      Note that you can engineer the second attribute.

      Also there is a very good argument for having your own domain name with multiple pages and linking your squidoo lenses, myspace pages etc to relevant pages on that domain.

      A domain name that exactly matches a keyword phrase has a MUCH higher chance of ranking number 1 in Google for that keyword phrase (and for similar keyword phrases).

      Kindest regards,

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.

    I read recently that as of late August, Google has removed the 3 adsense units per page limit and replaced it with a policy that has no specific limit but which requires that the amount of ads not exceed the amount of content. Is anyone familiar with this and can anyone suggest how best to implement this.
