I started my vBulletin 4 forum on 8/8/2010. I added Wordpress this past summer. I imported the vBulletin 4 forum to Xenforo on Oct 26th. Back in 10/26/11 my site was ranked around... 200,000 or 300,ooo something in the U.S. I made most of my site private on 11/8/2011. My site is now ranked 99,400 something in the US. How in the hell did my site jump that high AFTER I made it public? I haven't been doing any SEO work at all whatsoever. What I'm would like to know is... did the site rankings rise in between the time I moved to xenforo (starting 10/26/2011) or after I made the forum private on 11/8/2011? Why would it jump after the site goes private? I'm thoroughly confused.
