Hey all
I'm really struggling with one of our sites for a 2 word search phrase on Google. I just noticed that the site does appear for a rather obscure three word search phrase, but the "relates sites" option does not show.

Whats the significance of this? The site has several inbound links from other related (and better listed) sites and is listed in both Dmoz and Yahoo! And the site has had those links pointing to it for long enough for Google to associate it with its related sites.

Appreciate any comments

You won't get a 'related sites' link unless you have links from PR4+ pages. If your PageRank is low, that might also explain why you don't rank well for the more competitive two word phrase.
