As well as my own sites I am building I have also been working on my girlfriends personal blog to help get her ranked using all the knowledge I am learning from WA.

Its main intention is not to be a niche/money site as such but we will be promoting a few products that she personally uses anyway.

Her latest post I thought would have been a good opportunity to have an affiliate link in there so as I have been with my own sites I did a bit of keyword research and found some really good long tail keywords I thought would be pretty easy to rank for.

Once the post was finished I popped over to google to index the page. All went well and within an hour the post was up on page 4 of google for the main keyword where it remained for a few days.

When I searched for it on google today I couldnt find it so I used the site:domain trick to find all indexed pages and it has gone, it is no longer indexed.

I dont feel like I have done anything wrong but cant understand why it would be dropped.

If you could check out the page and let me know if there is anything obvious that I have done that google has penalised us for that would be much appreciated.

The page is http://www.sweetahimsa.co.uk/what-is-a-mooncup/

Any help would be great,

Thank you

Hi! I just checked and found your girlfriends post on page 4 - for the keyword "what is a mooncup?" Sometimes posts will temporarily disappear without a trace while google sorts it out - this will happen more as the blog is very new. As she builds more authority, the post should rise in the rankings. An extra thing she could do to give it a boost in ranking, is add a you tube video to the post related to mooncups - it doesn't matter if someone else has created it. Unless she wanted to make one! :)

Strange enough when I checked on Google.ca (I'm Canadain eh!) and Google.com I could not find it either???
Funny thing is when I searched "sweetahimsa mooncup" this blog came up as a result. So this page is already indexed.

How long ago did you fetch it on the Google Search Console?

The page itself looks great and I didn't see any issues with it.

If you don't have Jaaxy, let me know if you were using other keywords and I can check for you.

Hi there, thanks for your reply.
I dont have Jaaxy yet, I signed up for the 30 free searches but they didnt last long haha
What is a mooncup was the main keyword I was targeting but also had a few others in there too which on the first day it was indexed were showing up in google searches but are no longer there.
Maybe I am just getting a little excited about seeing a page of mine in google for the first time. I will give it a week or so and try again.
Thanks

Is it normal for them to de-index pages though?

Edit: sorry if that come across quite abrupt, didnt mean to. Just watching a video at the same time and wanted to reply quickly
