Thought this was a funny and entertaining thread on WMW about ranking in the number 1 spot in Google. Seems some urban myths abound with doing so well in the search engines. One of the WMW members starts off the thread with:
Google Penalizes for being #1! Yes, it's true! Once you are in the #1 Position google WILL NOT let you get any higher, but WILL allow you fall - often drastically!
Okay before you believe the SEO wisdom of the day post, understand that being #1 in Google doesn't carrying booby traps or red herrings in place to drop the site as soon as it gets there. Its most likely regular changes to the algo that cause a site to flucuate. But... its hard to say for sure. Discuss it at WMW.
