      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Search engines are dynamic beasts.

. Instead, the rankings bounce around and then pop back.

What did I do? I went back to bed. The first time, I nearly had a seizure. I wasnt even in the top 200. So what happens when you find your rankings have disappeared one day?

I Lost My Rankings SEO Nightmare?

It was a Monday morning. It was going to be one of those Mondays. After that, my reaction slowly evolved from sheer panic to a yawn. Instead, the rankings bounce around and then pop back.

The point you should take from this is that panicking is not going to help anything. More often than not, they will. Egad, I wasnt in the top 10! Holy I scrolled through page after page or results and was not in the top 100. Instead, the rankings bounce around and then pop back. Damn, this client had paid a sizeable fee over the year. It had been a lively weekend.

Search engines are dynamic beasts. I had not touched the computer and was glad for the break. Like fine wine, give the rankings a couple days to rebound. Yes, I breathed a sigh of relief, but I knew they would come back. Whether it was the panic caused by the old Google Dance or some new algorithm development or just a days variation, most rankings do not go from top 10 to infinity in one day unless a site has undertaken something very unethical. Yes, I breathed a sigh of relief, but I knew they would come back. It might take a day or even a few weeks, but they will come back. They do strange things and they do them often. In the situation above, the rankings were back on Tuesday morning.

Admittedly, going back to bed was only an option after I had gone through this experience a number of times over the years. I flipped open my browser, searched for the term and spit coffee on my screen.If you are ethical, search engine optimization efforts can take a long time and a lot of effort. Whether it was the panic caused by the old Google Dance coffee paper cup or some new algorithm development or just a days variation, most rankings do not go from top 10 to infinity in one day unless a site has undertaken something very unethical. Why? For the same reason you should not panic. In the situation above, the rankings were back on Tuesday morning. Staggering out of bed around the crack of noon, I nuked some coffee and sat down at computer. If you are playing the game paper ice cream bowls straight, you should not run into a sudden catastrophe. If you drop, dont rush off to do something. Yes, you may drop 20 or 30 spots because of some new tweak from Google, but you can deal with it. As it made horrible grinding noises while booting up, I wondered if a particular client would be ranked two or three today on Google. It might take a day or even a few weeks, but they will come back. They do strange things and they do them often
