don't panic! :)
there was a major algo-shift that came out with the last update - many poeple here lost positions. plus it may be reeinforced by competitor's activities in your case.
|Our site before September dance was no.5 for our targetted keyword.Google dances and we jump to about 150 for the same keyword. |
from my experience mirroring sites may only lead to a pr0 penalty or a ban but I have never heard of any small-penalties you described. Anyhow mirror-content is a no-no you may not use this again.
|We have also attempted the removal of mirrored sites that the client previously had in place, which we believe to be the cause of the downfall. |
jup: read all the threads carefully that are related to google's last algo-shift, have a special eye on the statements of googleguy and vitaplease. you'll find out something. :)
IMHO this sounds a little bit like you either promised your client to much or he hasn't been completely informed about the seo-business. how about telling him that seo requires some time and that the competitors aren't sleeping either?...you may also go for another (more specific) keyword combination which may not have the same amount of requests per month but may bring visitors who convert better - in the end your customer doesn't need a topranking, neither a huge logfile (with visitors who don't convert) all he needs is sales. :)
|Please help me as my client is getting more and more skepical as to the worth of SEO with each passing day. |
