    Hi All,

    My site was ranking very good in google.com. I was ranking on no.5th but now my website ranking dropped. i didn't do any changes.

    Few days ago keywords were ranking at very good positions. But now they are nowhere.

    Two primary reasons:
    a) It's normal, in fact it happens what you mention all the time until you get #1 ranking, usually it disappears for 24hrs and then returns back. So it should return to either where it used to rank or better position. I see that happen all the time.

    b) You simple got outranked by a competitor or another website who just got more backlinks then you... I hope you're optimizing for good keywords, if keyword has a ton of competition it will be difficult you're always going to move back and forth on rankings.

    Just keep getting backlinks that's what you should do (assuming the keyword is not too competitive in that case pick some other keyword).

    Those you mentioned are amongst the best some more:
    • Comment on dofollow blogs
    • web directories
    • forum signatures
    • link exchanges (join sites like linkmetro.com)
    • article exchanges (contact bloggers to do this, or website owners, or use linkmetro.com)
    • article submission (use service like distributeyourarticles.com they do manual submissions to thousands of directories and wesbites)
    • use backlinkswatch.com to see which websites link to your competitors (first 3 ranked website for the keyword) and get links from those websites.
    Use a plugin like searchstatus and just search the web for places not using the nofollow tag you can put your link on, e.g. hubpages and other sites that allow you to create pages...

    You can also just copy very relevant articles or quotes onto your website, and take other sites backlinks. Just make sure the articles and quotes are very related to your websites niche.

    Ranking isnt just about backlinks anymore because google doesnt attach backlinks only to urls anymore, they are also attached to content.

    A reason you lost rankings is that a competitor may have jacked your content or that you have recently posted content on your site that is not closely related to the subject of your site, or that websites linking to you have become less relevant by posting less relevant content etc.

    Ranking in Google is a bit more tricky than it used to be in the good ole backlink days.

    Not only back links but you should work for traffic also and social media is best resource for this.
    Target your visitors in social media and start a social media campaign to attract visitors for your website. Other than this, you may work to gain page authority also for your website.

    I don't think if we can get more number of back links than our competitors, ranking in the first three positions, can help us to get good rankings, and outclass all our competitors. It really don't depend on the number of back links, but completely on the quality of the back links, which means where (from which sites) they are coming from.

    Yes, now we should do quality work instead of quantity.
    Try to get back links from good PR page and try to attract targeted visitors.
