I was ranked on the 1 st of google for a highly requested keyword and suddenly I moved to the 30 th page, it has been over a month and I don't move.
I have changed nothing on my website and don't understand why this is happening ( the only thing I did was an upgrade of joomla ).
I use joomla and I had the 1.5 version when I was ranked on the 1 page. I decided to upgrade to to the 2.5 version and there was a bug when I did it because google starting indexing hundreds of pages when my website only has about 50.
In the webmaster tool I now have about 800 pages instead of 50. I managed to block google from indexing more by putting a robots.txt and reinstalling the 1.5 version of joomla and the number of indexed pages is VERY slowly decreasing ( after about a month and a half google has deindexed about a 100 pages but there are still about 650 to deindex )
My question :
Do you think that google moved me to page 30 because of the joomla problem I had and how long do you think it is going to take to bring me back on page 1 ?
Do you think I will need to wait until google deindex all the pages that are not needed ( the 650 ) or is it going to be a faster process ?
Has anyone on this forum experienced that issue ?
