I am seeing a drop in SERP ranking and wonder if this could be because of a change we made when adding keyword text to pages. We made two changes at the same time (probably not a good idea!).
1. When we added text to pages, we made all keywrods into internal links. Does Google like keywords as plain text, or are they OK as links?
2. Within the text, we also added links to other areas of the site not direclty related to the page concerned. For example, on a dog collar page, I have put text and links relating to dog collars at the top of the page and a smaller paragraph with keyword links to other areas of the site under this text (eg dog beds, cat collars). Could this be diluting the message?

I don't think these can be the reasons.May be some other factors are creating problem.According to my knowledge now days SE hugely prefer 2 things 1. Quality and Fresh content 2. Quality and Relevant inbound links check these 2 factors in your site,you might find out the problem.
