One of my websites has been at the No 1 position on page one of google for the last three months for its main keyword, then last week it vanished and has not been seen since.
Allthough there is a sub domain for this site ranking on page two for the same keyword, and in google UK the main domain is at N0 5 position on page one for the same keyword.
If my site has been penalized, why is it still showing on page one of google UK and a sub domain on page two of google USA.

Anyone got any ideas why this has happened, and how it can be fixed.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Ash....

    Google is weird...and it does this sometimes. It seems for me, at least once...maybe twice a year, this same thing happens to my site. It totally disappears. Sometimes it lasts for a few days, sometimes for two, maybe three weeks. But it always comes back, sometimes right in the top five of the first page (where it usually has been for years).

    Sometimes, it starts back on like page 6 or something, and then every day it gets closer and closer to page 1 and then finally ends up there and stays there for the rest of the year.

    My site did this about 2 weeks ago...totally dropped out of site. I expected it to come back in a few days like it usually does, but this time it took at least two weeks.

    You see this happen when Google is doing something with the algorithms. Sometimes I go to my site and make a few changes in text or something and then a few days later, maybe a week, it comes back.

    Your site most likely will come back if its already been on page 1 for a while. Maybe go to your site and add a few lines of text...or change some. The spiders will see the change. But, give it another week or two...I bet it comes back. It really is a pain, though. But, I've learned to expect this and I also have learned that the site always comes back. Again, it happens at least once a year to me.

    Just some input...

    Thanks for the info Andy,
    Ye a couple of my other sites flutter around the rankings from time to time, but I've never had one completely vanish before.
    I will go and add a bit of content to my site as you suggest, and hopefully see it return soon.

    Cheers

    Hi Guys,
    Same thing happened to me. I have been on position eleven (Google Sweden) with achillestendonitis.n.nu and the keyword Achilles Tendonitis for two months and yesterday it suddenly dissapeared.
    Not on top 30 anymore!
    I hope you are right.
    Best!

      These problems can be happened if you made a lot of new backlinks for your website or maybe you wrote duplicate content on your website. These are the most probable things for dropping ranking in search engines.

      Hi Guys,
      It is two days after my post where my page disappeared. I'm back on Google page one again for Sweden. No sign of my site on Google US, but I'll just wait and see.
      Best!

    I think this is called a Google dance and it makes the site owners worried, there is nothing to get worried your site will be there within few weeks.

    One of my site also has faced this problem but its appear soon after 4-5 days in google.com. Just Focus more on your website surely it will come back on its previous position... Good Luck!!
