Yes it had been that way for a year. It all changed from Jan 2006. I did nothing with the site design. Either Google changed the ranking algorithms in December 2005/January 2006 or the privacy protection triggered the change.
Since January 2006 I changed the site design couple of times in order to get the same ranking as I used to have before January 2006. A year passed and so far nothing helped. Therefore I started to suspect that it might do something with the privacy protection. Besides none of the sites having better ranking than my site for "business ideas" have privacy control.
Now I try to deactivate the privacy protection to see if it has any influence on ranking.
