    How to bring your website on top after going down?

    I am working on this website that used to rank on first page but 4-5 months ago all my keyword ranking went down and now are invisible on google SERP.

    Any advice on how to get it back up?
    SEMrush
    FYI the site is not hit by any google penalty

    I don't think my website is hit by google sandbox. Some keywords are still on the 1st page but major one's have gone down.

    1 very important question springs to mind - how do you know that the site wasn't hit by a penalty? Your WebMaster Tools will show a warning only if its a manual penalty that occurred, algo penalties have now warnings. So how did you determine such a big drop is not a result of such? The name of your website will also help so we can see how it looks ;)

    I checked webmaster tool, but there is no warning message. How to determine if a website is hit by algorithm penalty?

    Yes write more and more contents on your website, and also learn some white hat SEO Techniques and test them, be sure that you can catch your Competitors easily because of your domain age.

    look, if a person of google penalize your site, you see the report in the manual action of your GWT, but when the google penalize your web site automaticly with its algos like Penguin ... etc, you wont be notified in the manual action of the GWT in almost all cases, so you must pey attention yourself to dropness your sites rank in SERP and queries in GWT, and even know about new google algos to find out your web site is penalize by those algos or not

    There is no straightforward answer to that. There are various algorithms so you have to check both your content and links in order to be sure. Best is to do a thorough research of what happened around the time you lost the backlinks. What did you do around that time - did you add many new links or any links in particular? Have you added some new content or you haven't that in a long time?...well, there are plenty more questions to be answered. It does sound like a Penguin penalty but no one can tell you for sure (at least without your website name they won't)

    Possibility of not getting ranking on that particular keyword can be from both the aspects either through on-page or off page so you need to work on both the parameters.

    I think the on site of my website is fine to my knowledge, the problem is with off page I guess.

    I did competitor analysis and found that they mostly do content marketing, but as mentioned earlier in the post we cannot do that because of budget issue. Is there anything else i can do to outrank them?

    The site name is BOGOLF.IN

    @rahul: There are a LOT of things that could be done with this niche. You already said that you don't have a big budget, but can I assume that you are in a position to give 'time' to this activity?

    You can invite bloggers to test out this facility and write a review. You can write many great articles around the topic (P.G. Wodehouse wrote many fiction books around Golf - use his quotes).

    Nice idea! Thanks

    Now that social signals are part of google ranking factors, I invested some money in facebook PPC to promote my brand.

    Your ranking lose could be due the latest panda update which is currently being rolled.

    My rankings went down 4 months ago and the latest panda update is rolling from last week so there is no connection between my website ranking and the latest google update

    from past few months there are huge changes made by Google.com. There were many legitimate website that gone done for keywords they were ranking at rank one. Its not that you stopped working.. Its about Google new algorithum. Please work on social media as this is much favored by Google.com now...

    That is the thing - why would you need a big budget to produce content? You can spend some time every day and write about interesting stuff going around in that niche, useful golfing tips, some amusing facts etc. You can turn this into some valuable content without spending a dime. And even more, later in the thread you mentioned you dived in FB PPC - I have to tell you that for starters with those tools you will be spending much more money in vain than if you invest in quality content. ;)

    I agree with Rado, Facebook attracts much more traffic to any other site, promoting your site on FB, Twitter can really help you get a client for your service. Just keep writing interesting stuff.

    First of all, try not to panic
    Second, check if you were not hit by new panda
    Third, Work your way back up, making better content and avoiding spammy links :)
