    Site gone

    My site is gone from the SERP under my main search phrase. I used to be in the top 5 for a few months. A few days ago however I vanished. I still rank high on some keywords for pages other than my index page, but the index page is nowhere to be found. I know that others are having or had the same problem.

    Any ideas to what I should do to get my rankings back?

    Can you private message the url and keyword?

    Hey zippo

    Losing rank in a certain keyword is common. This recent update removed alot of keywords for me. Seems just having them in the content isn't good enough anymore. You need to develop good backlinks from similar sites which i'm planning on doing soon ;)

    Has your traffic dropped at all??? If not than dont freak out too much.

    i too have vanished off the map for a couple of my websites during the latest update.

    right now i wouldn't worry too much about it. i noticed a lot of my backlinks were taken off, and maybe that had something to do with the change in position.

    anyway, keep on plugging those links, and im sure you'll be able to survive this update.

    It's been fun everyone... Time to leave for good. See this for more details.
