    hey guys,

    I was doing fine in the SERP. had several first page KW ranking well.
    something like this... mysite.com/keyword1.html mysite.com/keyword2.html etc
    which was a static 1 page sales letter with on page SEO for each keyword.

    THEN i switch my site design to php and did a 301 redirect to have all my google listings goto my main page mysite.com while I update the other pages.

    for about 1 week I had all the listings in google for mysite.com/keywords.html redirect to mysite.com which BTW would not have proper SEO for the keywords
    they found in google.

    Now ive got all my pages back up and formated, removed the redirects and any links left in google takes them to the correct SEO optimizes pages.

    BUT... ive lost my SERP rankings. im not optimized for any of my keywords anymore. Ive gone and added backlinks, articles, blogs ad all the other SEO stuff... resubmitted a sitemap and still nothing.

    Is google being weird lately ad ill come back?
    or
    is something else going on?

    You should have used a 302 temp redirect instead of the perm one because that passes all the page rank to the home pages you pointed it to. If you leave everything the same the page rank will probably come back at the next update. But I'm guessing you went from a .html to a .php page so you will need to do a 301 from each .html to .php page. Eventually it should come back.

    :Di should have spoken to you first.

    right now i took away the 301 as ive added all the other pages eg /keyword1.php /keyword2.php etc.
    additionally i added a rewrite so that anything that comes in /mykeyword.html automatically goes to /mykeyword.php.

    is this ok?
    when does goes update? whens the next?
