I am a relatively experienced warrior, and have been doing IM for a couple of years now. I have a site in a particular industry that ranks very well for certain keywords, and is non existent for others.
A Little Background
While I do not want to divulge the industry I am involved in, the jist of it is that I review various types of products.
Many of these products have very few people writing about them, and in some cases, I am practically the only one who has written about said topic. Yet, I am still on page 32 or whatever.
I actually have Youtube videos of OTHER products that I write about that rank for the keyword which is completely different from what the searcher.
For example, I wrote a product review about XYZ Product, and when you search google for XYZ product review, on page 2 a Youtube video I created for Product ABC shows up! It makes absolutely no sense why I am not ranking for some of these topics.
The only thing I can think of is that as a result of the Panda update, Google may have found a few of my pages that were lacking in content, thus affecting my site as a whole.
Don't get me wrong, the site gets a decent amount of traffic, but it should be doing alot better!
I have done numerous backlink packages to this site, but most of them are just "band-aid" solutions which give me temporary results.
Sorry for the rant guys, I am just looking for a little bit of guidance from anyone. Thanks.
