Why sudden fall in rank of keyword in SERP?

Post by Binod_Barik » Wed Apr 24, 2019 2:43 pm

Hi Friends...

I'm new to this platform and I hope here I can have the answer to my question.

Yesterday, I checked the rank of a keyword and it was 5th in the SERP and today the rank has gone really down to 127. :(

So can you please help me out how it is possible to have a sudden fall in the ranking?

Thank you in advance, hope to know the answer quickly....

It's normal for young websites. Google's algorithm also changes every now and then. If the drops are the same as Moz's weather (https://moz.com/mozcast/), it's probably an algorithm, if not a simple turmoil, as I mentioned before, normal for young websites.

Try to make your article that you are trying to rank in even better than your competitors. The better the article the more likely it is that Google will link to you and that other people will link to you as well.

It is normal. As Girrafex wrote. You need to create some new stuff. You can make an article. Your site should be also optimized (on site SEO) with your top SEO keywords.
