Importance of onpage and offpage optimization recently
Is onpage and offpage optimization important recently ( may be in 6 months) ?. Coz one of my webpages is step by step decreased from page 1 to now page 2 SERP position 15 in last 3 months . I am sure it will continue decreasing more.
Google found the content good till 3 months back ( it put the page in page 1 SERP 4 or 5 ). But have for some reason pushing it down. The content is 100% original. There is not any updates to that page. But is that the only reason?
PS: I think you can come page 1 with nice content without any kind of optimization.

Recently ON Page and OFF Page optimization pay very important role,
On Page optimization is basically the effort which you put on the website Like:- existing content, correction of HTML code,remove broken links, Add Meta / Alt Tags,Add XML Site Map.
It is very important that On Page Optimization is done correctly for a website as this educated search engine crawlers and spiders about the theme of the website and which keywords you are targeting to rank on.
Off page optimization is something which done on offsite and usually not visible in website,Directory submission,social bookmarking,article submission,blog posting,classified ads are the activities dome in Off Page.

On page and off page will always be important for organic results...PPC not so much.
Is onpage and offpage optimization important
Hard to tell what the reason is without analyzing it.
But is that the only reason?

The fact is, over time you are likely to come up against more and more competitions vying for those top spots. What ranked 6 months ago may not be able to compete now. Additionally, Google have been devaluing links all over the place recently. If your back link profile was of a poorer quality (or indeed you have not been accruing new/better links since) it is likely that some of your competitors with stronger (future-proof) profiles have leap-frogged you.
Of course without analyzing your site and competition this is just speculation. However, you would be wise to look further into these areas.
I hope that helps

The page I am talking about is a content page with affiliate links to sell a product. Naturally there would be pages of different sellers of the product ( which do not have much content ). For instance google is putting 2 or 3 pages of the same seller ahead of my page which causes my page to go down and down. If google is putting one page only from a single seller for a product, it is understandable.
