    Your competitors must be putting double efforts in marketing their business. Have you checked that aspect? Have a meeting with your marketing team - Online marketing and offline marketing and decide what efforts can save you from loosing rankings !

    If you analyze that ranking is going down ,you should need more efforts as you usually applied. By doing so you can get the result.Moreover, you need to consider about Google updates .

    If your ranking is going down then definitely the reason is Google Algorithm Upadte. It decreases rank of sites which are over optimized or use low quality and Black hat SEO techniques. YOu have to first check your backlinks and remove all the spamming Backlinks from your site . It will help you.

    Ranking goes down because of the hidden links and payed links to get higher ranking you have remove all the hidden links do not buy back links. and the important thing is that never provide links to low page rank websites

    Hi,This is done most of the times..what all you need is to analyse your site and realise the points where the site is lagging.

    Thanks

    Anna30,

    There are several potential reasons for your website ranking might be going down. One thing that is important to note is that page rank alone is not the overall algorithm Google uses to rank a site. In fact, Google states itself that it only updates PageRank a few times a year. I agree that it is possible your competitors are increasing their efforts for driving traffic to their sites. However, there are several other possibilities as well. One thought is that you may need to add more relevant content. In addition to describing the hotels on your site, create some blog postings that talk about things to do in the area. It is also possible that some sites you are linking to had their rankings go down. This lowers the quality of your links, and, therefore, your website ranking.

    Here are some great guides to improving your website ranking:

    Hope this helps,

    If recently your site's ranking is down, not very long, sometimes Little bit change in ranking because of search engine updation, don't worry about that your site is get back to its original keyword position in serp. But if it hasn't been the case , if it has been out of rank(from your original position) then there might be several reasons behind this-
    -Duplicate content issues
    -fix cannonical issue
    -Duplicate title tags(see the site's inner page meta tags-make sure these should be uniuqe)
    -Use webmaster tool to find 404 error page, use 301 redirect
    - check your competitor website
    -Do little work for sometime

    Also, do not forget to diversify your keywords. Do not only use your main keywords for link building, use generic anchor text such as "click here", "here", "check this site", etc.
