Sucker bunched with a PR:0 over a year ago and still can't recover

    Hey all

    For over a year and my company's site page rank was been PR:0 and i dont know why. Our product is a well known brand within the industry and sold to a very niche market so before being banished into nonexistence we were showing up in first position in all our keywords for about 2 years then (quite literally) overnight we were nowhere to be found. We've never been penalized by google so we can't even send a reconsideration request.

    Now, around the same time we dropped off google, one competitor in particular came from nowhere to rank first in our keywords. I'm making a point of this competitor as their company name and product is almost identical to ours, so much so that we've had customers who were under the impression they had purchased our product only to find out this was not the case.

    My site page rank:0 and my competitor page rank:1 may all be a coincidence but there's one more important factor that i'm not prepared to mention here - more than happy to discuss in PM...call me paranoid but once you know you'll understand why.

    All that aside...is there any way we can find out why this happened? And what we need to do to fix it? Any advice is appreciated!

    Thanks!

    PR definitely has nothing to do with it.

    Have you checked your backlinks to see if negative SEO has been done?

    Hello,
    Something very similar happened to us. We recovered but we are struggling again with the ranks and never been on top again. Our business is on a very niche/specific market. I'm trying to get someone from this forum to look at our site and provide some perspective. I was trying to PM Techxan but I'm not allowed because I need to have a minimum of 15 post.
    Any help would be appreciated

    PR has nothing to do with your website rankings, i will advice you ask a expert to analyze your website and see whats the problem.

    PR means shit in todays internet.

    Your site is probably poorly optimised and/or has very few links.

    PM me and il take a look.
