Hi Team,

Please help.

I book a domain 9 months before and start working on it to get high rank on Google. Surprisingly the website ranked well with in 6 months (almost 1st position from all my keyword). I was done basic onpage and offpage activity for this.

But now from 1st of feb the ranking is going down day by day. due to this traffic is also down. The ranking changed only 1st position to top 10 not out of there.

Please help me rectify the reason why my website going down.

When dealing with new sites and ranking drops:

-You might have lost some backlinks
-Your competition might have gained backlinks
-Your competition might have added your keywords that were missing on their site
-Another site might have scraped your content
-Rankings fluctuate with the hundreds of changes each year
-Your latest SEO activity might have incurred a penalty
-Ranking are personalized so you might be comparing rankings that have been personalized in different ways

These are just a few issues that could be impacting your rankings. You might want to better explain what onpage and offpage activity you have done.
