I don't want to make anyone irate but I did want to point something out that may help you learn to stop hurting yourselves in the search rankings.
I did a consult for a client in July 2003.
It has ranked on Googles front page since September 2003.
One of the keywords is <edited>
Results 1 - 10 of about 83,800,000
Website is # 3 currently and slides between positions #1 #2 and #3 but never goes anywhere else
its locked in toss any update at it and its been there not moved...doesnt drop..just sits....
Now everyone is in Big Daddy Errors and blaming Google
But here is the funny thing ....it's still there.
Big Daddy moves and Jagger before it....
the site does not move!
Nothing but following Bretts steps has been done. No link exchanges of any great numbers just plodding away.
This is not my only one... but this one serves the purpose.
I don't claim to be an expert... in fact I am far from one...but part of everything I have read and what my clients sites show....
leads me to believe it is not all Google issues.
Are there others with the same findings? Where Googles issues do not bother yours or your clients sites?
