My domain is not ranking on the Google search engine

My website (u signature is my website) was the first on Google Search engine rank for keywords "translate subtitles, subtitles translator" until April 2020, but since April 1, 2020 my rank has dropped overnight and now my Domain is not ranked at all on Google search engine for keywords "Translate subtitles, subtitles translator and others".

I inspect it and my web site is better in SEO than all competition and it has a better Moz DA and PA rank, but it is still not on the first 10 pages of the Google search engine. I looked in Google Web masters Tools I do not have any penalties or other prohibition measures or manual actions that I should take.

Has anyone had experience with a case like this and how could the problem be corrected?

    the only thing you need is just been patient enough,
    with time it will rank higher as expected.

    the newbie mistake is wanting to blow all the way up to the first ranking in which can not be possible for a start,

    one of the ways to rank higher is by engaging more with people and adding more value to your web space.

    to go higher in google ranking is like been a new kid in the block

    cheer!

      But it is not the solution my friend, he said that his website used to be on top of SERP and how can he get back on top by engaging more people. Maybe if I am not wrong there might include the role of the Rank Brain Algorithm of google. You should learn about it by exploring.

    I afraid it can't be corrected.
    It would be cruel to welcome you to the club but it is what it is,
    Google's algo is ****ing up regular ways to do SEO business,
    something I have learn based on our site, that came down from #1
    for dozens KW and phrases to nowhere just so G. would win
    War on SEOs.

    You see, in G mind if it didn't placed you in #1, then you must be
    cheating and doing something G doesn't like, so you must go.
    But then again, you can try to change composition of your KW.

    This is a very common problem, just follow the google rules to get the position in the google search engine.

  • Ranking in Google's results is easier said than done.

    There are millions of different websites trying to steal your rankings and, in some cases, many of those competitors succeed.

    Of course, you don't want them to.

    But beating them isn't a matter of simply publishing content and hoping for the best.

    In fact, the people who lose are the people who think that SEO is just that simple.

    Fortunately, you know better.

    1) Are you absolutely sure that you are not or have not been the victim of a negative SEO campaign?

    That you competitors haven't actually placed spam backlinks to your site at some point in the months leading up to your drop in the SERPs?

    Many of those people who get paid to harm other websites move their spammy links to another domain after a while when they got the result they wanted, so the victim doesn't always understand what happened. But once the damage is done and even if things are back to normal, it may take a long time for Google to correct the situation ... assuming it fixes it!


    2) If I test your site for loading speed in Pingdom from Germany (you are located in Europe), I see that your site is too slow and your competitors are all much faster. Your site loads in 3.6 seconds and Pingdom gives you a C score. So the problem may just be your site's speed compared to others.

    3) Study the top 5 sites that appear in Google for your keywords and try to figure out what they do better than you. Just because your site has already been among the best in Google's eyes, doesn't mean it will stay that way indefinitely.

    Conclusion

    In the future, constantly monitor your site to see if there are any malicious backlinks. If that happens, hurry to disavow them in Google Search Console.

    Improve the speed of your site.

    Try to rejuvenate your site by taking a very close look at what your "luckier-than-you" competitors are doing.


    Good luck!

    Is it an expired domain you took over and changed the content of? Is your website part of a PBN? Are you gaming the webmaster guidelines?

    Moz DA, PA and all those other proprietary metrics don't mean jack shit. Question is, if you take a step away from your website and see it as your target audience, would it make sense for them to use it?

    Also, the dramatic drop, coupled with the fact that I know quite a few people engage in spammy tacticts to compete for the keywords you put there could point towards a Penguin supressing you. This happens realtime.

    Go through your backlinks. Remove spam/paid ones. Also, make sure that you HTML lang coding is correct. It's possible to drop completely out if you fck up that, or the ahreflangtags.

    It could also be robots.txt, or X-Robots-Tags serving noindex somewhere. The latter being more tricky to discover. Do a bulk check on all URLs via httpstatus.io.

    Like, there could be thousands of reasons for you dropping. Something is very, very wrong when it happens.

    Negative SEO campaigns don't tend to work the same way they did back in the years btw.

    That is not knowledge. That's confirmation bias.

    The most important factor is whether or not putting your page high up in the SERPs makes sense for search engines. This is achieved by being better than everyone else, and also understanding the user AND intent behind the query leading to your website.

    Yes it happens. I also have 5-6 keywords that previously ranked so well but suddenly they all disappear from google search. Just follow the regular process and dont stop generating fresh content and evaluate your keywords on a regular basis. Good luck!

    As far I think Google will have downgraded your rank because Google objectives are to down-rank sites whose backlinks look unnatural.

    Did your website's backlinks created in an unnatural way?

      Harsh Joshi, Google ranks a lot of sites that have unnatural link profile, because they have unnatural link profile... How do you think a web page goes viral?

          Well, can you define which links you think aren't natural
          and why would you believe Google should thinks so too?

            I think unnatural links are links that have a bone spur, facial hair or, if they are female, 3 breasts not too. Those that have 29 teeth are also unnatural.

    Probably because you used some unnatural methods.. Give it a time and work according to the guidelines of Google and you will get your website on top again.

    Good question. Too much hocus pocus. A good analysis may well find it's nothing to do with the links. People are paranoid about links because they HAVE caused many sites to get penalised and downranked, but it can often be something entirely different. Don't throw out the baby with the bathwater, check with a full on page and off page analysis first!

    Well I consider unnatural links are those links which are generated by paid method. As understanding latest article of 20th February in search engine journal where Google's John Mueller discussion on Natural links are really worth to be taken up.

    Thanks in advance

    Try to built high quality back links from relevant websites. Google give preference to the websites which have high quality back links from the websites of almost same niche. Also, try to improve website loading speed and user experience of your websites. Your website will rank

    I think your website should have an SEO audit, Find out what the problems are and take action accordingly.
