    Is it Google Dance?


    Hello all,

    From last two weeks I am facing some issues regarding maintaining the raking for my keyword:

    male enhancement (Google USA) - <snip>

    Some time the ranking shows me at 2nd position of 1st page and in text few minutes it vary to almost 9th page.

    I do use via Google chrome, Mozilla with Google global plug-in.
    I don't understand is it really happening with me or you guyz seeing these days for yours.

    We are seeing daily changes in Ranks on competitive keywords. Almost like Google is testing something.

    Not as Competitive ranks are fairly solid.

    Google Dance, ahh those were the days. However lately it does seem as if it has returned, with teh way Googel is rolling out algorithms in larger versions rather than long term tweaking.

    In your case I would suggest you consider the fact that you may be receiving personalized/Geo-targetted results.

    The best way to check true 1-10 rankings IMO is to use AOL.com (whoa is that still around??) but yes AOl uses Google search results in the old school 1-10 pattern so it is a good indicator of where you actually lie without Google's personal and Geo-target results.

    Going with my experience, I have seen lots of changes in ranking for my certain keywords very frequently. Sometimes a keywords bags me the top 10 position and another day I could see dropped down to 8th or 9th page. Then again it comes back in a day or two. I have attached a screenshot for the keyword ranking changing courtesy Cuterank.

    Even I am left with no answer on why does it happens. But sometime I does feel whether QDF has something to do with this. Well no proper answer as yet.

    Looking at the two images you would find there is vast variation and ups & downs in ranking. Is it something you are facing with?

    In addition to my above post, I believe it does not relate to any kind of penalty. So I don't see it as big issue.

    You wouldn't believe that this is happening with me everyday and rank varying 2nd page to just after refresh some time 8th page.
    If this because of google is updating the algorithm, is they update search engine for all month?
    I don't know what is happening nor the site is penalized.
    Any solution for this?

    Your keyword is quite a competitive one... This niche has extremely high competition and tonne of websites get live everyday. Its quite possible to gain and lose rankings frequently in this niche.

    Based upon your resources, you may be able to fully optimize your site for only one or two of the major search engines. Using keyword-rich content and structure will give you an advantage on any engine, but Google, Yahoo!, Ask.com, and Bing all have their own nuances that favor certain SEO elements.
