I'm hoping that someone might be able to explain this to me because I am having trouble making sense of it. For a while, my website (Dog Bows by Maude - Dog Hair Bows for Shih Tzu, Yorkie bows, wholesale dog bows, Puppy Bows) was listed on the 3rd page of google when I typed in the phrase "dog bows". Then, for a while, the site completely vanished even though I was able to find the site if I typed in it's name in the search box. Then, the site was on the 4th google page for several weeks. Now, it has disappeared and it doesnt even show up 20 google pages in.
I have already read the sticky thread titled "I have lost my rankings, Google has dropped me " and I don't think any of that really applies to me. This doesn't seem to happen to any of my competitors as their sites are always essentially in the same place (within a spot or two). Is there anything horrible or evil looking about my site that would make google move me so much?
