    I was told by Volusion that I should enable the canonical funtion and as soon as I did my site bombed. Now I'm not sure if I should wait to see what it does and ride it out, or if I should change it back. What would you do?

    The site I am referring to is w w w.tanninglotionsource.com and the keyword was tanning lotion.

    rel='canonical' on big e-commerce sites makes a lot of sense. Make sure you implemented it correctly.

    Just saw this in my google account:( I haven't built links in forever.

    Dear site owner or webmaster of w w w.tanninglotionsource.com/,

    We've detected that some of your site's pages may be using techniques that are outside Google's Webmaster Guidelines.
    Specifically, look for possibly artificial or unnatural links pointing to your site that could be intended to manipulate PageRank. Examples of unnatural linking could include buying links to pass PageRank or participating in link schemes.
    We encourage you to make changes to your site so that it meets our quality guidelines. Once you've made these changes, please submit your site for reconsideration in Google's search results.
    If you find unnatural links to your site that you are unable to control or remove, please provide the details in your reconsideration request.
    If you have any questions about how to resolve this issue, please see our Webmaster Help Forum for support.
    Sincerely,
    Google Search Quality Team

    Just an unrelated tip after viewing your site...when you type in "tanninglotionsource.com" into your browser, you get redirected to "tanninglotionsource.com/Default.asp" You should 301 that back to just "tanninglotionsource.com" because you're losing PR and splitting link juice between the two home pages as opposed to just one.
