Default Google Dancing

Recently, I decided to keep a check on how my site’s keywords are ranking with the help of Firefox’s Rank Checker. When I checked the rank of a keyword, it ranked #150 and a week later, it ranked #6. I thought it might be a mistake, since the keyword ranking jumped 144 spots. When I checked back after 2 days, the ranking dropped down to #165. I am unable to figure out the reason behind such an extreme increase & decrease in the ranking

This might be due to the update of algorithms and this process will be for a few days. To avoid search engine dancing, follow the search engine guidelines and generate more organic links.

Hi mate,
I too had the same problem. It is due to algorithm update by google. Now my Keywords ranks are back to position.

We use to say its google dance for a massive fluctuation in the search engine, it will happen for one to ten keywords not for all your targeted keywords. So no need to worry about it..

This so called Google Dancing is normal to the search engine and some of the reasons are the updates in algorithm and the performance of the site in the web.

I am totally clueless too. I am doing local SEO for a sister city. I use SEOProfiler. I have left high page rank do follow back links for one hour a day for the last eight months. Basically the only new back links it is showing are 2014 no follow back links
