And second, how new is "new"? Sometimes a blog post will rank immediately after it is written, especially if the query term is one that Google has tagged as QDF or "Query Deserves Frehness". Then after a bit, that url will fade away in the results. If it continues to attract new natural backlinks, then is may climb back toward the top.
I1m not sure what you can do - tell you what I would do though - NOTHING...for now anway...leave it 2 to 3 weeks...
I wouldn't be getting anymore of them natural links either...lol
I may possibly consider inline-linking to another of your blog posts (relevant) and an external domain (related) too...
But it looks as if it could have flagged for spammy links...imo
I am not sure why you are laughing so hard, but wiki pages get created about new subjects and when you are amongst the first posting about it, you end up being credited for it.
No I didn't write the wiki page and no I didn't write that other website which happens to be new.
Getting more links: Well that's easy if something is new you just need to let people know about it.
I really appreciate your help, but I protest the judgmental placement of your lol's.
Something may look spammy to some machine filter, even when it is perfectly o.k.
However, if you promote the new domain or post with content driven links (like with an article at a top ezine), you will get more link love and respect... it will push or keep your original where it's at for a good while longer...and it may even support itself over time...
Content driven links as opposed to links for links sake..
You could also ask the question about this on Google's Webmaster Help forums (see our Forum Charter [webmasterworld.com] for the link.)
I already did. They were telling me something about canonical issues (aka blog front page vs. post page) but I honestly believe this is a load of ... since it only applies to that single post and not others that don't even have external links. I fixed the canonical issues just in case to see if it comes back.
I appreciate it that you guys put your thinking hats on for me!
