    I use a 3 level silo structure for my website:

    L1 = homepage
    L2 = keyword page
    L3 = supporting keyword pages

    I used to rank top 5 on most of my keywords with L2 pages.

    I'm seeing the following on some L2 keywords... rankins are slowly dropping to top 20 and than suddenly to page 5 of Google... when this happens I don't rank with L2 pages anymore but with a L3 supporting keyword page.

    WTF is going on here Google? :)

    SIlo sucks.Do it for readers not for google. That's best onpage seo for google.Google hates duplicate images so download and bit edit and upload.

    After doing some minor changes (I unoptimized the images) I now have 2 urls on page 5:

    L3 supporting page followed by the L2 page!
