In the last months I noted that one of my main keywords (website section) was dropping quickly, did I do maybe something wrong? For instance to add a menu entry and a h1 with the exact keyword which is actually the real name of the section?


  • Actually, the website purpose is to give you public and local IP address, and is exactly what it does. The keyword is: 'what is my local ip'... so... If you search that, and all what you get is exactly that... hehe maybe Google is just doing the things wrongly or maybe I have to find the ways to retain the user a bit longer in the website... maybe offering some additional services or so... – JMendoza Apr 2 at 17:52

It's difficult to tell based solely on the information given.

More likely it's Google's recent spurt of updates. However, based on what I see, you have only occasional click through by users in spite of a fairly consistent impression rate and positioning. It's my belief that Google interprets low click through as not answering the user's question. As a result, they may choose to show your links less.
