1.5 years old blog not ranking

    Hello.

    My website I started back in Aug 2011 has been out of ranking for quite some time now. I've always kept the following points in my mind when posting: 400-500 words unique and well-written articles including some on-page optimization factors.
    SEMrush
    I ranked in top 5 of my keywords for about 10 months but since then and the following months, I can't even see my results anywhere. There were some 3 months in which I didn't update the site so I thought that's an issue but since the last 3 months I've been posting about 2 articles each month but that didn't help. The new articles rank #1 for their title for about 10 hours after which they totally disappear. Also, when I post links to my article on sharing sites - I see that those sharing sites are ranking in top 5 for my keywords.

    What could be wrong? I have no clue at all.

    Anyone with enough experience should point out but please stay on-topic please.

    Slightly off-topic again!

    But let me tell you it has nothing to do with off-page optimization. I've done enough of off-page optimization regularly and for the point, if I didn't do it, my website should still be ranking somewhere but the case here obviously means that there is something obstructing the rankings here other than optimization.

    First of all submit your blog in to Google Webmaster tool. This is the best way to get cached and then it will help you to improve your ranking of your blog/

    I've already been observing WebmasterTools / Analytics data regularly but they don't answer the low ranks.

    Everything is normal in there. Keywords you can say are Titles of each post and they should rank on full title searces as they did before. "Blue Waffles" is the name of the blog/keyword. SE is Google.com whole the off-page optimization I've done is some Article submissions, Web 2.0 submissions & some sharing sites. I could see rankings because of this SEO done but all the ranks just disappeared after some months.

    It may be of your poor quality contents.

    What's more quality than Web 2.0 links?

    Once again, please stay on topic and enough with the point-less discussion.


    No use, already doing that gradually.

    As said before, I have only focused on quality which is why the quantity of the content is a lot lesser on my website. Just 12 articles since 1.5 years!
    I had a PR2 on home-page, which is now a PR1. Quality is definitely fine here.


    Something else to do here.

    An update:

    The site also does not show up even if a full paragraph of any article is searched in Google but other sites easily show up.
    I received a reconsideration request's reply from Google today and they said:

    Well actually there are several thing that you have to consider why does your website's rank decrease, you have to consider your backlinks (they might decrease so your site also decreases) it's like a domino effect, poor contents... (keyword prominence and density and flow your content).. Google Updates also. broken links and pages you can check it on google webmaster. IMHO focus more on traffic you can gain better ranking through your traffic because it represents how interesting and quality your website is...

    Come on!

    Its not about the links.
    Why does every new post rank for about 12 hours and then totally disappear?
    While I have a brand new site with zero back-links, but all the posts ranking good enough.

    Simple as that.
