Google Mystery
Forbes Best of Web site lost

Hi folks,

I have been having an ongoing google mystery with my site. This site has been my baby for 7 years. It includes large format photography, handpainted maps, and text that takes me months to write. Everything on my site is written by me. My sites topic requires traveling and long days and nights in the library. The topics are diverse but centered on non-commercial travel narratives.

I was hit with a duplicate content penalty in December 2005 for having affiliate content on the site. After that, I got rid of all affiliate content, and have only my own text pages.

My site appears in Time Magazine, mentioned in the news, is a Forbes Best of Web site, etc. Not showing off, just showing the distinction between what I consider is a real content site (linked from thousands of sites) and how google doesnt seem to be recognizing this stuff.

Now, I noticed all my internal pages are pr1 or 2, this from a pr6 site. I am wondering if everything I did to bring my site back to normal with google, ie site map, absolute links per googleguy, reinclusion request, etc, etc, etc, has actually confused the search engine even more?

Is there anything I can do and is anybody willing to sticky me to take a look?
