Hey guys, been a while since I posted.
One of my websites, which has maintained the top sport for several years, has recently been moved to second placed (sometimes it's further down based on location). Traffic levels from G have not been effected.
The website which has gained to top spot on almost every location has only been running for a short time in comparison (not sure when they started, but the domain is no older that 2 years). My website has been online for about 6 years, and held the top spot for the last 3-4.
Now, my main page has over 50,000 organic backlinks from various websites, with steady growth. This new site has only about 10,000.
Now, I noticed this new website offers it's content in various languages.
Could this really be the reason for the boast? has anyone else noticed this?

Thanks miozio, I think you could be right in this case. The nature of my website does not require much freshness - however, I've been trying to at least make it more useful and fresh. Hopefully this will help bring it back up!

Remember that experts often point out that a newer site will get top placement for their kw's, and then drop down quickly. How long have they been #1? If less than a week, and you've fully optimized your site, I'll bet you'll be back to #1 in a month.
Only other thought is to analyze the influence/pr of some of their incoming links. If many have higher pr, then perhaps that's something to look at for you to get more incoming links from higher pr sites.
