What is the best way to monitor my search engine rankings for certain keywords? Free site or program?
Good question. There is a good ranking-meter at seochat.com. Unfortunately, it is done manually for each of the phrases/words you want to chek out.
maybe, just maybe, they have chart function. good luck in finding it.
Will this be a problem for search engine rankings?
Removing all the files could essentially "reset" your rank.
Why remove them all? Modifying the template would be a better idea, you'd keep all the information on site, same URL structure, etc without upsetting the rankings.
Obviously any major change to your site can and will have an effect on your ranking, it just depends on how much.
If you've created a template and can change that (eg the look) then you stand a better chance of maintaining any ranking you've achieved. You don't want to knock out your foundation.
That said, if it's a new site it won't matter so much.
Also, are you keeping the same URL or changing it?
Is your site currently in a non-SEO friendly format (eg flash) that you're updating to a more friendly version? If so, do it.
Anther consideration is the end user. Does your current site navigate easily? How about your new one?
As much as ranking is important you must keep in mind the people using your site. If they like it you're on the right path. If you only build for search engine spiders you could be missing out on myriad opportunities.
How is it possible for my Yahoo search engine rankings to get hijacked?

What's the best way to improve my search engine rankings.?
I was in your shoes a few years ago and I feel your pain. You can learn all the SEO in the world but if you don't have a solid step by step game plan, chances are you won't get any results.
When it comes down to it, SEO is all about
1. Finding the right keywords to rank for
2. Optimizing your website to rank in Google for those keywords
3. Then building backlinks with those keywords
Of course there is a system to each of those steps but it would take all day for me to explain. You can visit my SEO blog if you get more info. It's in the resources section right below.
Your site has very few inbound links (13). None of them are high quality and at least 3 of them are no-followed. You want 100s of good links.
You will need to embark on a quality link building campaign.
how do i get me site higher in the search engine rankings?
You might want to give this a try...
It's is a new search engine which searches via key words rather than content, though keywords need to be relevant to the content.
As the site grows, listings will rotate so each site will share turns in the top position over and over again...
