    SEO Company - Performance Query

    Hi all,

    We've got an SEO company working for us at the moment and, before, we were doing quite well with our main keyword.

    Back in February we did a large overhaul of our website and after dealing with our account handler, all the changes we made were okay in terms of SEO.

    Since then however our position for this keyword has plummeted. It's only 5 or 6 weeks ago someone else from said company has come back to us and said we need to add new copy to the site. Bit of an ache...

    The copy has been implemented and we're bouncing all over the SERPs. One day we're at the top of page two, a few days later we're middle of page three. They say this is normal as Google "figures out what our site is about".

    Considering we were in the second position before it seems bizarre that our rank is doing this. I just wanted to see if this was normal behavior? Has anyone else had an experience like this?

    Ranking will do that when changes are made. One problem I see is clients are not patient enough...they want it now and generally when you get it now, you'll eventually on the road to disaster and I only said that because your at 5 or 6 weeks. That's not very long.
    We can't really comment on whats been done because we really don't know, and any little thing might be an issue or a great help...whom ever you have working on it is the person that knows.
    So really no one will be able to answer your question. But that can be normal behavior with the information you provided, if that helps.
