Lost Keyword Ranking
« on: 10-29-2011, 03:42:00 »
i've completely lost one of my keyword rankings which was #2 for its search results on google. my other 2 keywords however haven't changed. any ideas why this happened?

i was recently infected with somekind of spyware code in my index page but i just cleaned it. google may have took me off its listings because of this but if it did, how long do i have to wait to be relisted for this keyword?

maybe you've been hit with Google's Panda?

Might be the competition of the keyword increase. Keep on building quality backlinks with the targeted keyword for the page.

I think your website suffered a loss due to that spyware code.
You just need to make sure that your website is free from any such spyware. Make sure you
-Update your sitemap and submit it again to Google webmaster tools
-Ping search engines
Don’t worry as it takes time to gain a position in SERPs after such a downfall.
Be patient and keep on doing Organic SEO consistently.
