I recently signed up for an affiliate program that lets you have a branded store. And put your own domain on it. So I bought an exact match domain for the term I was after which had about 75K competition. Seo'd the main page attached the domain got some quality linking done. Ranking on google exact match search "keyword phrase" #1 Ranking on google general search keyword phrase not even in the top 300 Now the company that provides the site is ranking at #5 I think. I would think that if it was banned it would not show up for even an exact match search with quotes. But maybe there IS some kind of penalty. Am I being penalized for using a turn key site? If so should I just move the domain to a host since I already have 100 good links coming and the just link to the store on maybe a sub domain? Anyone have any answers?
