My Yahoo Ranking Dropped After Using Google Code?

Recommended Posts

My site went live 01-21-07 at http://www.yourfreshstart.us.

I was doing great on Yahoo and Google.

Then I placed Google code for their Analytics

And then watched my Yahoo rankings drop like a rock.

I track 21 keyword phrases

And was on the first page on 17 searches

Now I am down to 6. That's a way crazy drop in two weeks.

I have a blog and blog almost daily... And on my index page

I have a daily cleaning tip prominetly placed and it is changed daily...

The API didn't do much for my Google results

But it seems to have killed me with Yahoo...

I removed it today... Any ideas? The site has a PR of 3 in a local niche market... I'm stumped!

I really think your drop is not becose Google Analytics code, you can add code again. Something else was wrong and it's hard to tell what without more informations.

 

I have some sites also with Analytics code and i did'n see any problems with it.

Yes I would also doubt that it was due to that. Maybe it was just the natural adjustment of your ranking? SE's do it quite often - they set you up at one place but shift you, a.k.a. Google / SE dance

Hi geeurbie,

Well I consider thts happen more or less with every websites..like initially they have good rankings with all the major search engines but after few good days,it drops down like nothing.So i would advise you to stick with it, and in the mean time get some good inbound links for your site.Hope it will be ok then!
