A couple of weeks ago I managed to get a review post on the front page of Google, Bing and Yahoo which in turn gave me loads of traffic and sign ups to WA.

But although I am still ranking on Bing and Yahoo my Google ranking has disappeared and so has my traffic. Is there anything I can do about this ? I would like to get it back of course ... Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks Martin

i have heard ranking goes through about three phases - the first algorithm is a basic one - then a tougher one and finally almost a human one.
this all up takes about 34 weeks, when you wil have your 95% final ranking.
the first stage takes a couple of weeks - the second up to 12weeks.
so adding backlinks and getting comments would be a good move at the moment.
you have probably gone from the first to the second stage and other ranking factors have kicked in.
might be worth doin a couple of articles on site and linking to it and maybe an article on medium or somewhere like that.
good luck getting it back

I have experienced this same occurrence with some of my posts but the good thing is that those rankings came back a few days later and could be gone again etc. I think this is expected as more content on same topic is been added to the Internet. I would say keep up with writing a quality content and your ranking is sure to come back.

In general, rankings can jump up and down at times and nothing much you can do than just continue if you are focusing on quality content.

Secondly, there has been some issues with Google by error deindexing pages recently and this is something they have announced themselves. If that is the case the rankings will come back. You can read more about that here: https://searchengineland.com/googles-de-indexing-issue-still-not-fully-resolved-but-google-is-working-on-it-315070

Finally, is it just in Jaaxy you are checking or can you see it on the actual traffic? Because sometimes Jaaxy can misread and not show your post even though it is ranked - I have experienced this a few times.

The site is still indexed as getting a few clicks on other articles but this one seems to have disappeared

It is a general problem with Google Search Console since the fourth of this month. Google released an announcement that the issue was resolved since 15 April but it can still takes some days to get back to normal.
