    Google seems to have penalized one specfic page of my web site. The rest of my web site has a page rank of about 3, and it ranks #1 on yahoo and #1 on bing yet on google one main page of the site (that is linked to from all the other pages), has a lot of original content on it, and is well aged (used to rank on the first page of google) shows no page rank and can't be found in the search results.

    I have not made any changes to the page for years, so why is this one page seemingly penalized? Also, the page is for a clickbank product of mine, so there are other people creating "hop links" (clickbank's way of linking to the page as an affiliate) that might look to google like duplicate content of that page. Please Help!

    Thank you!

    Possibly an affiliate spamming links to your sales page?

    What can be done about this? If any affiliate can essentially build "duplicate content" sales pages, is there some type of "ignore those pages" code I could add or something? I'm not great with robots.txt stuff, so I'm not sure if there's something that can be added.

    Thank you!

    What exactly do you mean Razorbl? Redirect what page? And how do you cloak links that Clickbank generates on your own site?

    Thank you for the code! What exactly are these two bits of code doing? I ask because I have some iframed pages on the site and want to make sure that this code won't mess anything up on the site.

    Thank you!
