Pages constantly vanishing then reappearing in SERPs

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience in a domain or subdomain where its pages will rank naturally for a few weeks, then literally drop out of the sky for a few weeks, then reappear back to its normal ranking position, and then fall again etc.

I have had a good look in Analytics and will continue to do so until we find some kind of pattern, but wanted to ask if any webmasters had found a definitive reason as to why this keeps happening, or is it just plain random?

Cheers,
Wesiwyg

I've seen this when starting link building for a new site - but it usually only lasts a few days - not weeks.

That or if the domain is new I've seen this too - new site will be there then drops - sometimes it returns but in many cases it does not. Not sure if that helps?

the site in question is 5 years old, it started happening at beginning of 2011 and has been coming in and out of serps ever since.

Have you had any performance or stability issues - ie site offline for an extended period of time? Are you making a lot of changes to the site?

Are we talking about only some of the pages?

No stability issues, no major changes apart from changes we made following first major disappearance which made no difference - we are talking sitewide drops in the nature of 100,000 pages.
