I have been waiting a month now to get my website (http://www.fitzwilliamcardclub.com) ranked on google under my keyorwds. it finaly happened on friday but when i came into work this morning the site is not coming up at all. When i use the website name 'fitzwilliam card club' it is ranked at 60 when it was first 2 days ago. I have only got 3 visits so far by the googlebot but none over the weekend. Anybody know why the ranking could have drastically changed so quickly?
Thanks in advance

Google has been doing a lot of changes over the past three weeks.
At this time I would not even worry with Google but would spend my time working on getting links coming into your site.
I would also look at your key words. How many people are going to do a search for 'fitzwilliam card club' you do not want to spend your time getting ranked #1 for a key word that is only going to get a couple hits a month.

I was just using the 'fitzwilliam card club' keyword phrase as an example. The site came up first with this but all of a sudden its way down. I will start getting websites to link to mine.
Does google prefer html pages to dynmaic(asp/aspx) pages? I read somewhere that the googlebot will access a site more often if its content changes regularily or does it presume that if the webpage extension is .asp then the content must change?

I will give you the best advice I can give. To start with any time someone tells you something I would not believe it unless I read it in about ten other places and it is something that makes sense. Including what I say.
Your in a very competitive business I would look at your competition what key words there going for and how many links are pointing at there site.
Html pages are better then dynamic pages but Google can read both. It is just a lot fast with html.
I think Google looks at sites with a high pr more then sites with a low pr. This could just be because of the amount of links going to that site. Every time Google runs across a link pointing to your site they will look at your site. Changing content I think helps but again I think it is because of the links more then anything else.
But no one really knows what all Google looks at. There are some days I do not even think Google knows.
