Hey, this is my first forum post (just joined yesterday) but I had a quick question. I made my first article yesterday and I was surprised that within a few hours I had reached the first page when searching on google. Now I search for it again, and the only way I can find it on google is through Digg, and that's on the 8th page. Is there any explanation as to why I had such a great page rank last night and now suddenly I've lost it? Thanks in advance.
It's called the Google dance. Often new content gets pushed up initially, but then G will move it around in the rankings before it stabilizes. Sometimes pages will show up and then disappear altogether only to reappear weeks later. It's the nature of the beast, and the only thing you can do it create backlinks to try to encourage G to rank your page higher.
Welcome to HubPages, PatW also, don't forget that the big G has been making changes to their SERP's too
