Has google punished me? SERP Ranking

Discussion in 'Google' started by weasel, Jan 22, 2009.

    HI guys i own a arcade site and i used to rank really wel for the term free games.

    I always used to rank around page 2-3

    But yesterday looking for my ranking postion to see if i had jumped

    I could not find my site at all.

    I check google webmaster tools i duno how long it takes to update but that stil says im in 23postion.


    I have recently redesgin kenplay but i made sure that all the links was the same.

    do u think ive been punished or am i on a bouce as i have been been building link quite rapid over the last few weeks.


    Thanks Anthony

    When you roll out a redesign of a site, it is common for your ranking to go down temporarily. As long as you have not made any mistakes with the site navigation you should be fine after a little while.

    Depends what you mean by building links rapidly, but that can also be a red flag to G.

    Even if you redesign the site but the metas are untouched, rank should not change... maybe your competitors are doing great...

    Did you alter the page content, <title> tags, Heading (h1, h2, h3) etc?

    If you just redesign your site, without changing any stuffs like content, tags, links, etc... then it has no effect to your site ranking. There could be some other factor that affect your site performance. It could be the links you get, optimization, or even content. For now, just wait until your real ranking comes up.

    3 things i'd consider:

    1. If you've done aggressive link building, this will be the problem.
    2. If you've altered substantially the content and internal linking of your site...
    3. Google is in the process of an algo update
