Hi. I have a site that was ranking on first page for my keywords. I did heavy link building, they moved to top3 in a few days, and now all of them are between 500th-700th for last 1,5 months.

Now my inner pages rank on 30th-40th for my main keywords (these don't have any links and nearly impossible to rank at top 1000.)

Is this google dance? What can I do about it? I did a 301 redirect today to another domain, do you think it will work?

Thanks.

    You said you did heavy link building? Did you do this naturally or did you pay someone to do bulk back linking?

    Yes, I think its google dance. You should not do heavy link building never. Natural link building is the key thing to hold your ranking on SERP.

    I am suggesting you to build natural links from now and while building links don't think about the site's PR, just focus your link's quality.

    Building backlinks all at once may be the reason for this. Creating a natural links profile will always keep your position in serp

    I would suggest you to stop building links for some time.You website may be effected by Penguin update.
    Just check various parameters in Google analytics and if this is the condition, then 301 redirect won't help you much..
    You have to follow different approach.

    I hear that just doing this entire process a bit slower helps. Do you think that is the case? I think it looks more natural then.

    You should observe some of the following things in your linkbuilding rounting
    1. Do you ever used blog networks?
    2. Do you have too many affiliate links in your article?
    3. Do you have any copied content?
    3. Have you ever used any low quality links?

    These are some of the reasons for being penalized by Google.

    The Google dance is a term that was used years ago to describe the fluctuations in ranks that were caused when about every month or so Google would re-index the WWW As different data centers were updated with the new information results would vary based on which data center your query was directed to.

    Is this google dance?
    No, the 'dance' lasts a few days, not several months.

    Things that may have caused it:
    1) Building low quality backlinks in an un-natural way.
    2) You made a change to your website that Google didn't like.
    3) You got b***h slapped by the Penguin update. Over optimized website?

      Agree, you said 1-5 months? That seems too long for the typical bouncing around that happens in the early days of a site.

    The google dance lasts days, maybe weeks. If the problem comes after 5 months, it has other origins.

    It is like this for 5 weeks (not 5 months)

    I bought blog reviews. So all the links are quality. They moved all my keywords to top in 3 days.

    After it entered to dance(?), I continued to buy links for 4 weeks. And on the 5th week, i decreased its amount near to 1 review/day. And i believe this caused -at least- my inner pages to pop up on 3th-4th page.

    I don't think that it is penguin.
    My site entered to dance or something on February 2012. I was on second page for all my keywords.
    It came back after 3 months -exactly on 29 May 2012- with all my keywords on first page.

    I'm 99% sure that this is dance, because it happened me at past. And all of took 3 months to come back. So i wanted to learn if doing 301 will stop the dance, because i can't wait another 1,5 month.

      If I understand you correctly, you stopped link building? That could be the cause of it. You need to keep building those links, or you'll just slide down the rankings again.

        Actually opposite. I continued to building links for 1 month after my site dropped. It didn't come back. When i stopped building links, my inner pages started ro rank (on 3th-4th pages of serps)

    how old is your domain ? Google dance is mostly happen for two reason, when Google indexing links (if your site is not establish well and has PR 0) and when Google changing their algorithm...

    The name "Google Dance" has often been used to describe the index update of the Google search engine. Google's index update occurred on average once per month. During an index update there was significant movement in search results and Google showed new backward links for pages.

    Actually I am having same problem with two of my sites. Suddenly they are going out of SERP and after one or two days they are coming on first page. But I don't stop link building. I am building links slower than the past. Now they are permanent in first page. I am targeting to get them in top 5.

    Well, just slow down the link building process and do the quality link building like in the forums, blogs and articles.

    According to me your main page was penalized by Google so your inner pages get preference. Remove unnecessary links pointing to your website in order to remove this penalty.

    According to me when Google make changes in its database and then ranking of all website keywords change for 2-3 days then i think this process is called Google Dance.

    Your link Building always seems to be manual. you should build limited links if you want to stay in top results.
