Just realized a site that had a steady 800 visitors a day is no longer showing up well in google. It is showing up, and in some cases in on the second page, but some of my more competitive terms have dropped off the map.
Whats worse, is the guys who are ranking in the top 10 often have absolutely nothing to do with the search query. So essentially, I have more information about the topic (including 500 word articles, title, page, h1 seo'd), and the guys that rank in top 10 have, in some cases, as little as a tag on their blog that fits the keyword.
What gives? Is this the so called google dance taking effect. My site is 8 months old and has 130 unique articles on it.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, but please don't ask to see the site, i dont need someone copying it. Thanks
