Loosing ranking

Share This Post

There are multiple factors when it comes to finding the issue behind the drop in rankings.

In general, there are 3 factors to consider to find out the cause of the ranking drop. It could be due to the competition is performing well or your website lost quality due to any change/error or it could be due to the search engine algorithm change. If you are losing rankings and want to know what might have caused this, consider doing a Technical SEO Audit first.

Technical SEO is the process of optimizing your website for the search engine crawling and indexing phase. Technical SEO can help search engines access, crawl, interpret and index your website without any problems.

There are multiple tools to check for technical SEO errors, I recommend using ahrefs or semrush other than Google search console analysis.
