A keyword which lets even "lose weight" look pale in comparison. It is a keyword which has almost 1.500.000 local searches in the US alone.
Today, after a long night's sleep i wake up and to my surprise this page is already indexed. (More in regards to this further below).
On my sites, i have the very great "statcounter" plugin running which shows wonderful stats about visitors, keywords. It also shows me the Google rankings for keywords when visitors come to my site(s).
Around 7am this morning, i got ONE (and up to now the ONLY ONE) hit for that super keyword, coming from Google.com
According to statcounter, the keyword was at position #9 the moment the visitor came at my page.
I dont need to mention that it would be *incredible* to rank for this super keyword on first page, basically immediately after it got indexed in Google.
Right now, i dont see my page yet on Google, let alone anywhere on page #1 for this super keyword. But that hit made me suspicious.
Can it be that i was in fact at #9 for a short moment and that a human evaluator has "downranked" my site?
I am saying this after i heard rumors (actually i KNOW that they exist!) that Google hires so called human "quality raters" which come then into affect for a site which is ranking for a keyword which has more than a search volume of 6000/month. (This is what i heard).
Means: For each such new keyword, depending on search volume and popularity of the keyword...there is human rater checking a site and then evaluating whether the site actually "deserves" that ranking.
There is another, weird thing going on that i am trying to get one particular page of mine getting indexed for a keyword which, one could say, has a "spammy" vibe to it since it is used quite often and popular.
I am using the same methods on THAT page with that keyword as on my other pages, but that darn page just wont and wont get indexed! This is odd since the page i made yesterday with the "super keyword" took only hours...and that other page is waiting since Nov 25 and STILL not in the index.
I have suspicions that there is a lot of preferencing and manual ranking "manipulation" going on since i cannot explain the #9 position of the keyword earlier..then disappearance...and the fact that the other page just wont get indexed. it doesn't make any sense!
