    Is there a service on here that can help with this... for an example, someone with deep knowlege who can review my site, advise me what to add/delete/change?

    either that.. or perhaps someone will be nice enough to help me....

    before anyone asks...

    There is no duplicate content on site nor scraped or auto generated content
    all is manually writen content, and there are about 20 pages worth.. all nice, and a good looking engaging site.. so im really confused

    thanks

    Could be one of several things, if automatic.
    • The site layout could be leading to duplicate content, so tag pages getting indexed and turning up tons of dupe content.
    • Thin affiliate site/to much affiliate advertising.
    • Content that covers the same ground, different content going after the same broad keyword.
    • Excessive linking to one affiliate product.

    If manual
    • Google employee doesn't think your site provides a valuable experience to its audience.

    exact message:
    "Google has detected that some of your pages may be using techniques that are outside our Webmaster Guidelines.
    As a result of your site having thin content with little or no added value, Google has applied a manual spam action to "my site name". There may be other actions on your site or parts of your site."

    Was this displayed as a manual action or automatic action? If its a manual action someone at Google may have determined that your sites content was thin. It's quite hard to speculate why the site recieved a thin content warning without seeing the site. Did you source your content? Or Write it yourself? Manual Actions
