    I have a number of websites but this is a mystery to me, I have the on page SEO geared almost exclusively toward theses keywords. Stafford VA bail bonds and this site used to be a dominant number 1 google places all the time ranked site 8 months ago, (I admit I slacked) but I cannot understand why it's not back on top after rebuilding the site, and offpage backlinking (granted it's not a million links but look at my competition)

    Here are the sites:
    My site: xxx.lookoutbailbonds.xom
    competitor: xxx.heflinbailbonds.xom

    I'm trying to dominate on "bail bonds stafford va"

    Can someone tell me when this guy has exactly NO backlinks, and no real onpage SEO for those keywords how his site suddenly went from page 4 to number 2, and how xxx.familybailbonds.xom has suddenly outranked me? I don't get it, do I have toxic links? Should that even matter when I have some pretty strong pr6 directories and they have NONE, zero, even moderately decent links.


    Thanks for any help or direction on what to do next.

    SEO does not always make logic... I am ranking number one with many small domains that are less than 1 year old, having PR0, less than 20 links, competing against domains with PR, age, much more backlinks...

    Why it is so? I do not know... With other sites, I am not outranking anyone, even if the strategy is the same.
    So, maybe your competitors have very good on page factors (page views/visit, time on page, number of returning visitors, etc.) and beat you because of it. do not forget that on page is not about placing keyword to titles and headings, like majority of people here believes. On page is actually more art than offpage!

    Well, I always consider content the most important on page SEO factor, and when it comes to content, I blow their pages out of the water. Always have, in fact, all of them just stole most of my pages content and structure because I was dominating them so easily for so long. Personally I think they are paying someone to do some SEO for them. Google is frustrating because they claim their goal is "content" but that isn't what you see generally.
