I think auto-linking keywords to pages in your site is a pretty well used tactic amongst big sites. Just look at wikipedia, who exploit that to the max....
P.S. This should be in the Google Search forum.

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.

Many thanks for your input.

You should check to see if your pages have been hit with the -950 penalty/filter. Too many internal "keyword rich" inbound links can hurt a website.

Sounds to me like the internal linking is being over-done in a couple of different respects. Was that all done for users or for search engines?
And why link to off topic sections? Can't users find them through the site navigation if they want to?

errorsamac and Marcia are certainly right, this type of automatic mass generation of IBLs is almost certain to have a negative end-result on your site.

How could that be?
Look at huge sites like Wikipedia (there are many more who do the same I'm sure). It helps them in an absolutely huge way.

It is assumed that Wikipedia is manually given a lot of trust and that's it why they rank well and also why they can get away with things that normal webmasters can not do.
