Cool google hopping and jumping

Hello,
This is my first time here. I have a company, Wrought Iron Solutions, and when I enter wrought iron into the Google search engine under the key words "wrought iron", I am listed in a different spot every day. Some days I'm on page 2, some days, page 4. Yesterday morning I was page 1 and then yesterday evening I was page 3.
Does anyone know why this jumping around happens? I dislike page 4.
Thank-you. Vicki

That is common as the Google index is constantly being updated and your query could be supplied by any number of data centers that Google has located around the world.

You can minimize the severity of your movement by gaining more links. This will help you stay closer to the top but you will always have constant flux since Google has a large amount of data centers and they are never in 100% sync also they regularly test algo tweaks which will influence your position.

When I read the title of thread, i thought to myself 'the story of my life'. As david said, its pretty typical. Regarding more links, it is true that search engine spidering activity will be more frequent with more links. Additionally, the longer your page is indexed in google the more consistency you should see. In the end though, links alone will not completely eliminate hopping results like described as Google does use multiple datacenters which are constantly being updated. Frequently, over a long period of time, these datacenters may not have data in sync. The variance between one datacenter and another may impact your sites rankings as described. Eventually, everything will be in sync. But its an ongoing process so similar experiences over time should be expected. The more rankings you have, the less you become dependent on one specific keyword and the up and down shifts can balance themselves out. Diversifying the number of keywords you are targeting to increase your exposure for additional keywords is something appropriate to work on. More QUALITY links are good of course, but there are other factors important as well.
