    Unhappy My position is changing every day, WHY???


    How long is the G Dance? I remeber i've reed somhewere that begin on 20 of the curent month and it end on 3 next month. It's that corect?
    If that's corect why for more than 1 month my postion is changing every day. When I'm loking in cached I see a new date of last visit from google.
    From more than 2 weeks i removed the "<meta name="revisit-after" content="1 days">" tag, and G still visiting me every day and changing my position. WHY? PLese HELP!!!

    PS: Best position-2 page, last position
    Worst position-7 page, middle position

    The changing is not just backward, it's a "z" move, backward, forward, backward, forward.

    Thanks.

    There's no Google dance as such anymore. What you're seeing is the result of different Datacentres feeding Google. It's pretty normally to see such variations.

    You can check the various datacentres using mcdar's tool

    Surely you are not complaining about G-bot visiting every day ;) Get used to it.

    Google is doing some major tweaking right now. Furthermore, your place in the serps not only depends on YOU, but also on your "competitors". If they optimize efficiently today, they could rise tomorrow...

    But a major shift like you're talking about could (I say: COULD) have something to do with duplicate content. G might feel your pages and someone else's are quite similar (they don't have to be the same, or even partly copied). Then they tend to alternatively show the one page, then the other in the SERPS.

    You could check for pages similar to yours using copyscape.com ... Good luck.

    I know for sure, that until 01.08.2004 G was visited me one time / month, I knew that I must wait one month to see that the changes I've made was good or bad. If the changes were good I knew I will stay in a good position for at least one month. Now....changes every day......(

    Results can fluctuate every day. You just have to get used to it

    Well at least if you mess up you don't have to wait one month before it is fixed.

    Generally, a site that gets visited daily is a PR5 - so maybe you have had your PR upgraded

    Amphytrion, don't look at your G toolbar for actual PR. Check Ggl directory instead if you are listed. It may not be today's PR but it's regarded to give you a newer estimate (since the toolbar indicator hasn't been updated for months now).

    So you might have PR5 for your home page without realizing ;)

    Everflux, my results sometimes go up and down every time i run a search.

    concentrate on getting a few more links and hope you settle down (or up should i say)

    try to target a wider range of terms as well, dont be dependent on one term.
