Search results aren’t static. They change and fluctuate over time. You can gain or lose rankings as your posts become more or less valuable over time. Let’s say you have a popular blog post that ranks highly for a long-tail keyphrase. But over time, you stop adding to that post or linking to it from other new posts, other people stop linking to it as well. It becomes buried and forgotten. That post will lose its individual ranking. Search results aren’t static; they change and fluctuate over time, you can gain or lose rankings as your posts become more or less valuable over time.

But it’s just a matter of time before this naturally happens if you stop working consistently at it.
Till now a number of articles have been written on why SEO is so important. The majority of business owners now know what SEO is and why they need it. However a number of individuals are not so sure SEO is going to work for them or if it will turn out to be a waste of time and money. I would recommend they take some valuable time to see how their competitors are faring in the rankings and how their sales are stacking up, and all because of the wonderful SEO service they are using.
Another thing I see frequently is companies often while using an SEO provider, decided to suddenly stop or cut back on their campaign, obviously after having had a good response form that service, and their website has achieved position 1 rankings in the search engines for its keywords/key-phrases, their website is understandably receiving substantial traffic; however that does not mean they don’t require any further SEO, in fact this is usually the time companies and website owners make that costly mistake. SEO takes time and a lot of effort to work. Companies who stop or cut back on their SEO service once they start receiving there desired results don't necessarily consider the dangers of losing ranking over the coming months and or realise that the efforts to get them back up the rankings will not only cost them more time and money but many months of lost business and revenues, subsequently due to competition, SEO has become and will continue to be a constant process, it is like growing up, there are always challenges but there are lessons to be learned along the way, there is no reason to resist it, just accept it and embrace them.
