,  as my main job is to improve ranking,

 

Then you need a different job, improving and checking "rankings" for specific phrases went out as useful over TEN YEARS ago.

Even after the Google updates is it possible to stay on top in rankings. One day I was analyzing the rank of a client and I saw that citation was ranking on top and on the next day citation was on top (in manual search) but rankings were down according to serpbook and other tools. Can one explain why this has happened and what could be the possible reason behind this?

Every page has multiple rankings for the same queries. You cannot rely on rankings tools to track search marketing progress. You have to look at search referrals to the page, even if you cannot see the keywords.

I'm confused, is Penguin 2.0 the latest Google Algorithm or the Hummingbird?

Hello Shelly,

 

I agree, I have the same issue more or less. I rather be on 1 instead of 16 in Google whatever they might say. Of course I lost traffic, of course I lost requests. In my market there are only 3 important keywords and that's it.

I found out high traffic websites are more important for Google then other specialists. I will never get my # 1 position back.

 

Alexis

No there isn't, no matter what the market place is there WILL be more than three key words/phrases that people use.

Hello christhirst,

 

I said important keywords, and I can know because I own this website for many years and track it daily on visitors and keywords behavior or anything you like to know about your visitors.

 

So I still say I am better of with a # 1 position in Google instead of 16th.

 

Sure there are more words or phrases our visitors using, but that's nothing compared to the big 3

The "big 3" are probably not as lucrative as you think to waste time on chasing pointless rankings for them.

 

If you STOP trying to force "the big 3" and attempting to make search engine results bend to your will, you will find that conversions for ALL the words and phrases your target customers use will improve  thereby providing you with 'results' that your accountant will recognise.

Hello chrishirst,

 

If you consider being on # 1 in Google with the big 3 keywords as a pointless ranking, that's your opinion. In the meanwhile my competitors are taking the benefit for being high ranked.

 

But don't worry, every page on my website is targeting other keywords.

 

But anyway like I said high traffic websites will be on top in Google.

Hello chrishirst,

 

I look at it as a client, and I spoke with some of them of course. So if I follow your way of thinking I should not worry and let the competition grab the opportunity?

 

Sorry, but I can not follow your way of thinking.

You can continue to think only about a "# 1 position" you have lost and believe you will never get back or you can develop other ways of bringing in converting traffic.  You don't necessarily have to invest in keywords.  You can look at paid advertising, social media promotion, true content marketing (that creates demand for your Website), etc.

 

But if you really want more search traffic for your site, you need to start looking at things differently.  Otherwise you're stuck.

Hello Michael,

 

I understand, and have it all. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Wordpress blog,  Google +, Pinterest, Flickr. Buy some add words once in a while.

 

I am not really stuck yet.....
