2. Google brings my page back, notices something wrong and removes it.
Just a thought here...
Is it possible that SERP click through rate is becoming a bigger factor in ranking?
Maybe google is giving your URLs a brief testing period to see what the user click through rate is in the SERPS before deciding where it will rank them on a more permanent basis.
Instead of finding something wrong, google says, "Well, it's time for this URL to get some temporary exposure so we can determine the CTR before assigning it a more permanent value."
And I wonder if it is also looking at domain-wide CTR as a factor on individual page ranking. So if MOST of the URLs to your site have an above average CTR, then there is a little boost giving to each individual URL ?
