My first site is a new one - 4-5 weeks old. It was steadily on page 1 of Google for it's main keyword term, fluctuating between positions 8-10. 8 or 9 days ago, it disappeared from the front page and hasn't been back since. I don't know exactly where it is now, but my guess is it is back on page 10-20 or so. Interestingly, it appeared in Bing at the weekend, in the number 1 spot. It's disappeared from there too. I've been doing everything right in terms of backlinking and SEO so hopefully it'll be back soon.
My second site is almost 3 months old, and has been moving upwards in the SERPS quite rapidly in the last month, from position 420, to a high of 17 this morning. This is for a pretty competitive term too, with a strong top 10. Hours after I saw the 17th position, it disappeared The sooner it comes back, the better - if I could just get on the front page I'd be confident of getting some very good organic traffic. I'll keep this thread updated with any changes
(Just to point out in case anyone asks - both sites are still indexed by Google with the site: command, I've never had a site sandboxed )
OK, over to you Feel free to share your misery, worries and hopes for the future of your dancing sites
