    Hi Wayne,

    I'll just take a stab at this one...

    Your meta keywords are stuffed with words that are not in the content on your home page where they exist in the source code.

    You might want to take a look at removing the ones that aren't supported by the text.

    The reason I say this is that the same thing happened to one of my sites.

    A little background: I wanted to add a page to one of my sites to sell a line of products, and before I added the page, I stuffed the meta keywords with the keywords I wanted for supporting that page.

    Bottom line was I went from #31 on Google for my tier one keyword ('niche' products) to all but disappearing. In essence I got a Google 950 slap. I found my site on the very last page in the serps, #846, down from #31.

    The only thing I had change was adding the meta keywords without the supporting text.

    So I dumped the meta keywords and within 4 days I was back up, only this time my site was at #25 on the serps. It's currently #3 and has stayed that way between #3 and #4 once it got that ranking.

    Like I said, I'm just taking a stab at this so you will still need to test. But if you are looking for a place to start, try dumping those meta keywords that are not supported for your home page.

        I've learnt something from this post and I'm sure it'll be a very valuable one

        Thanks again!

              it sounds like you may have been sandboxed for keyword stuffing.
              I can have a look at your site if you like?

                I'm aware of some free duplicate content websites to check your material so you don't get slapped, but can you tell me of any free programs out there to check for 'keyword stuffing?'

                I'd be so bummed and heartbroken to go through so much trouble, just to find out you're slapped and pushed down into the abyss among millions of other pages

                  I'm not aware of any programs free or otherwise that check specifically for keyword stuffing.

                  I do have a set of free tools that anaylse keyword content and give a usage percentage. Perhaps a 'keyword stuffing' check might be a useful tool to add?

                  I wonder if I should do a specifc post about my free tools page? I'm only new here and I don't want to ruffle any feathers and get accused of spamming or anything.

                  cheers

    Hi Wayne,

    PM or Email me and I would be glad to send you a couple of good long tail keywords in your niche with a strategy to get on the first page of Google, Yahoo, MSN and stay there for awhile....

    That's the one thing that bit you in the butt. It did me too. Google stripped my PR5 and took me out of the serps.

    If you submit a pad file and use your own site for the download URL, eventually you will be slapped silly.

    Use an alternate server for all your pads as well as a file sharing account for the download.

    I don't have proof but, I think it goes back to having something to do with the crackdown on torrents sites.

        One thing that stands out is that you are using images with your adsense in a way that is against google's policy - you need to set the images off a bit away from the adsense block.

        The site needs some real content added to the "buy" links and ad links.

    You need to model your site after authority sites, that is the first advice I'l give you.

    2nd add your site to dmoz and other major directories

    3rd mistake you're making is not having a blog on that site (if you have this one then I didn't see it)

    If you model your site like the top sites in your niche, then you'll eventually rank better, also do understand that with domain/site age you can also rank better.

    Cheers,
    Magic
