Reasons Why Sites May Lose Google Rankings

Reasons Why Sites May Lose Google Rankings: Google’s John Mueller gives a general about answer why sites may lose rankings.

Reasons Why Sites May Lose Google Rankings

Google’s John Mueller gives a general about answer why sites may lose rankings.

Someone asked Google’s John Mueller why their site, successful for seven years, has lost keyword rankings. Mueller responded with four reasons why sites lose rankings.

I believe it will be a mistake to assume this is a comprehensive list of why sites lose rankings.

It’s probably best to understand them in the context in which the information was given, in an impromptu question and answer.

Reasons Why Sites May Lose Google Rankings

Reasons Why Sites May Lose Google Rankings

His explanation was a general overview and not necessarily a complete listing of reasons.

That said, the answers provide insights into why a site may have lost rankings and help start the process of formulating a recovery plan.

Nothing Wrong with the Site Yet Loses Rankings

  • Top Rankings Are Temporary
    • There’s a certain feeling that once a site is top ranked that it will continue to rank there. Mueller stated that rankings are essentially temporary.Mueller said:

      “In general, just because the site was appearing well in search results for a number of years does not mean that it will continue to appear well in search results in the future.

       

      These kinds of changes are essentially to be expected on the web, it’s a very common dynamic environment”

  • The Internet Changes All the Time
      • Almost everything on the web is constantly changing. Links to a site disappear. Competitors gain links. Content changes. New websites appear.These things and many more affect how relevant web pages are to search queries.

        This is how Mueller explained it:

    “On the one hand, things on the web change with your competitors, with other sites…”

  • Google’s Algorithm Changes
      • This is one of the reasons to explain dramatic changes in rankings. And it’s not like ranking factors change. When the algorithm changes it could be that Google is changing how it understands web pages.Several years ago, pages featuring top five lists seemed to dominate the search rankings. That might have been because of how Google understood web pages. Top five type pages were easier to understand.

        But that’s not happening anymore because the algorithms changed.

        This is what Mueller said:

    “On the other hand things on our side change with our algorithms in search.”

  • People Change
    • It’s important to always keep on top of user trends.Mueller’s answer:

      “And finally on the user side as well, the expectations change over time.

      So just because something performed well in the past doesn’t mean it will continue to perform well in search in the future.”

AdGuard DNS is a fast and easy way to block ads on any device and protect kids online!

FAQ
  • What is DNS?
    • DNS stands for Domain Name System. Think of it as of “address book” of the Internet: your browsers and apps use it to translate domain names that make no sense to them into IP addresses that they can understand.
  • What is AdGuard DNS?
    • AdGuard DNS is a free, privacy-oriented DNS resolution system that blocks tracking, ads and phishing. You can use it instead of your current DNS provider.
  • How does AdGuard DNS work?
    • When you use AdGuard DNS, every time a browser or an app sends a “bad” request, our server does not reply with an IP address, but sends back a null response instead. AdGuard has a database of domain names that serve for ad, tracking and fraud purposes, and this database is regularly updated.
  • What can AdGuard DNS do?
    • We offer two different modes. “Default” mode is for blocking ads, trackers, malware and phishing websites. “Family protection” does the same, but also blocks websites with adult content and enforces “Safe search” option in browsers that provide it.
  • What makes AdGuard privacy-oriented?
    • AdGuard DNS takes several measures to ensure your privacy safety. We support DNSCrypt, DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) and DNS-over-TLS (DoT) protocols.
  • What is DNSCrypt?
    • Instead of a regular client-server interaction protocol, AdGuard DNS allows you to use a specific encrypted protocol — DNSCrypt. Thanks to it, all DNS requests are being encrypted, which protects you from possible request interception and subsequent eavesdropping and/or alteration.
  • What are DoH and DoT?
    • They are modern secure DNS protocols that gain more and more popularity and will become the industry standards for the foreseeable future. Both are more reliable than DNSCrypt and both are supported by AdGuard DNS.
  • What is DNSSEC?
    • AdGuard DNS supports DNSSEC technology which allows you to verify the authenticity of the stored DNS records with a digital signature. It provides protection against current and potential attacks on DNS queries and responses aiming to forge them or change their content, and at the same time it fends off other online threats.
  • Why is AdGuard DNS free? What’s the catch?
    • We use AdGuard DNS functionality as a part of other AdGuard software, most of which are distributed on a pay-to-use basis. We might also develop a paid version of AdGuard DNS based on the current one, more advanced and with more features.
  • What devices can I use AdGuard DNS with?
    • There are no restrictions for which devices you can use it with. You can find a separate configuration manual for each platform on this page.
  • What ports does AdGuard DNS use?
    • AdGuard DNS uses default port 53. In case port 53 is blocked or unavailable, use port 5353 instead.
      I have some troubles or questions that are not covered by this FAQ.

      • What do I do?
        • I have some troubles or questions that are not covered by this FAQ. What do I do? You will find everything related to AdGuard DNS on GitHub, or you can just ask us by contacting our support:  support at adguard.com. We will answer you as soon as possible.

Overview

AdGuard DNS is a foolproof way to block tracking and ads on the Internet that does not require installing any applications. It is easy to use, privacy-friendly, absolutely free, can be effortlessly set up on any device, and provides you with minimal necessary functions to block ads, trackers, malicious websites, and adult content (optionally).

To start using AdGuard DNS, set up the addresses of Domain Name System (DNS) instead of those given by your service provider. AdGuard DNS is free of charge for personal use.

How does it work?

When you use AdGuard DNS, every time a browser or an app sends an ad request, our server responds with an empty response. AdGuard has its own base of domain names that serve ads, trackers and fraud, and it is regularly updated. We offer two modes for AdGuard DNS to work in. The Default Mode includes blocking ads, counters, malicious and phishing websites. The Family Mode does the same, in addition blocking adult content and enabling safe search for your browser.

 

AdGuard DNS can work on any devices, including smartphones and tablet PCs. There are no equipment limitations.

  • Advantages of AdGuard DNS
    • Does not require installation of any applications. All you need to do is to follow this simple setup guide.

AdGuard DNS is open source and absolutely free in personal use.

Supports all modern DNS privacy standards: DNSCrypt, DNS-over-HTTPS, DNS-over-TLS.

It has two modes: “Default” for blocking ads and trackers, and “Family” for the same functionality plus parental control tools.

We have strict no logging policy. We do not preserve any personal data or log your activity. Your anonymity will be maintained.

You can use it on any Windows, macOS, Android, or iOS operated device.
