    Hi all

    Several years ago I made a website and some internal pages managed to rank very well in google for "*product*" and "*product* review". These pages were steady and made me consistent income every month even though the site was left dormant.

    A few weeks ago I noticed the income dropping, and now it it basically earning nothing.

    The weird thing is that for my main earner "*product*" dropped completely off the face of google (not in top 100 according to SEO Rank Tracker) but "*product* review" only dropped to third spot. It is the same page that used to rank #1 for both but only the main one vaporized?

    I have been analyzing the competition but I am having a hard time even noticing a pattern with the sites ranking in the top 10. There are sites in the upper half that have almost no links and are outranking sites that have hundreds more links even though the on page seo seems to be the same(H1 tags, etc).

    Anyone else experience this with panda/farmer? Anyone manage to get their main keywords to return? Any ideas what to do?

    The site is 100% white hat btw.

    Thanks all

    the latest updates the big G has pushed out will probably have caused you some issues.. you'll want to throw some quality links to the site / pages that again are QUALITY..

    by building only quality links and using quality content you wont see any issues or problems with your rankings..

    so throw some good links to it and see it push back up the rankings.

    Many users have reported some crazy stuff with the recent update. People said in another thread it's going haywire.

    Since the Google "Panda" update a lot has changed.

    Google has moved the playing field and simple text links are almost counter productive, Pyramid linkbuilding is no longer worth the effort but Contextural Links will get you an almost immediate SERPS improvement.

    Most of the backlinks you will be offered today will be either, simple text on blog profiles or blog comments.

    Tens of thousands of both can be done in 24hrs using Scrapebox, and because of that Google is now giving simple text links less weight in SERPS.

    If you watch the latest video by Matt Cutts, Google's own guru, you will learn that contextural backlinks now have the most value.

    Contextural backlinks are links placed inside an article or blog post that are in the context of their surrounding text, so they look natural.

    For example an article on firefighting might have links to a firestation URL. These are quite time consuming to create and invariably need an image to get maximum Google juice.

    For anyone planning to create backlinks I recommend you to take 3 minutes to watch the Matt Cutts video on http://autoseosystem.com

    If you recognise the change he speaks about. then afterwards use their FREE software to create some contextural articles embedded with your own URL.

    Sounds like you would benefit from adding new content to your website, if you havent been doing this for a long time. G. loves updates.
