Ok, this is weird - I use Web Position Gold and I run it twice a week, monday and thursday, to check my rank on SEs. For my MOST competitive keyword string "vibratory feeders" I am either not even in the top 20 on most SEs, or between 15-20 in a few.
I HAVE NOT made any changes to my site in the last fe weeks. MOnday, my site went to the number 2 spot in these search engines, first WebPosition rpeorted it, then I looked for myself with a manual search on some of the popular ones like Yahoo and MSN. And there I was at #2, I was soooo excited! to say the least. And yes I was at spot #2 exactly ont hem all.... Now I am gone, I was there for like one day, and now I'm back to lowly 15-20 or not in the top 20 at all. I know it is not a glitch in WebPosition because I looked at the SERPS myself one a few of the SEs the day I was at #2 (This Monday July 26) and I saw it with my eyes.
My question is: are these SEs are results related?
If not, how could this happen?
Has anyone seen it happen with their site?
My site is 6 months old, it has already gone thru being in the top 10 for the first month, then dropping off, then coming back to a more stable position over the last few months, albeit lower....so this is not a "new site dance" bit I will let you know if I see this drastic change occur again - I will be watching my reports closely...
Here's the SEs I was #2 for one day on:
