Hi,

My niche is very small and I only really have one competitor that covers the same seaside town my site is about.

On a few pages I've written now they have shown as >30 when I have done a keyword update, but on the last one I performed they had improved which gave me some confidence that I was heading in the right direction.

Since the last update I have added content to subjects such as things to do in this particular area, and also accommodation in the area, after performing another update these two areas had dropped in the search engine rankings, even though I had added new and good content and passed the analyse it.

This also happened with an article I wrote about one of the things to do in the area, it was showing as 22 last update on google and now they have dropped the page, when I look at my competitors page for the same subject it has nowhere near the same amount of information as I have and not very good images compared to mine, yet it ranks number 1 on a google search.

I appreciate my site is only 7 months old and to be fair I've only really started to add content since November, am I worrying about nothing with pages slipping or being dropped? I make sure they all pass the analyse it test.

Confidence has taken a bit of a beating after seeing this, so I would really appreciate some advice.

Thank you

Nigel

You totally are! Pages are always getting dropped and picked up again. There is not much you can do about it, except to build on success, and make sure that you have great information, and even greater pictures. Keep going :D
