I don’t think I can still add something to the comments above for the reasons why the keyword positioning is dropping. I agree that the primary suspect is the wrong keyword used that is not exactly relevant to the niche. With the backlinks I think they also have an influence when the sites they are placed in are not that popular. Weak backlinks have a drawback on the ranking of the site.
