Title: New Site? Radical Position Changes in Google
Post by: VParker on May 15, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
Hey all,

So, a new team member the other day was freaking out.  Her new site was jumping around radically in the search engines.  She has gone from being on the first page to being on the 20th page to not being indexed at all back to being on the first page and so on...

If you are experiencing the same thing please, do not worry.  It's frustrating, I know.  However, virtually every new site experiences this radical change in position for the first 1-4 months.

This happens for several reasons.  First, your site is probably small right now so any changes you make can cause the search engines to re-evaluate your site.  Second, it can take them weeks, months and even years sometimes to find and index any backlinks you may have.

But rest assured, as your site grows larger changes will not have such a major and quick impact.  I've owned several sites that sat at the top of the search engines and can personally attest to how crazy the shifts are at first.  They will level out in time.

Hope this post reaches at least one person undergoing the search engine position shuffle.  You have done nothing wrong and your site is fine.  Keep doin' what you are doin'.
