Thanks for your reply
>>> Have you been through every one of the Google Webmaster Guidelines and ensured you are metting every one?
Doing my best! I have looked at all the "HTML suggestions" and addressed each of those... Also, like I said, we are a 12 year old site with NO problems ever. Google has always seemed to like us.
>>> What is your hosting situation like - shared/dedicated?
I host on my own servers... MySQL back end and apache front. Up 100% of the time, error logs show no outages or problems I am not aware of.
>>>> Do you host other websites and if so have you ensured that these are all clean too?
Yes, I do host a couple, all shiny clean, and all on separate IPs. Mostly they are my and my wifes photo sites (personal;) that are locked off from Goog anyway. A couple others are professional, but high quality, no bad links...
>>> How about page load speed? I know G is taking more of an interest in this these days.
Possibly, but not bad. Goog shows us at 5-8 seconds a page, which is more than they like, but not terribly bad. I have been working in Facebook plug ins and such, and those take FOREVER to load.... but I am seeing a positive response from that, too. I had 5 people "Like" us overnight.... and have been getting 2-3 a day since I added some plug ins last week. But they slow loads down...
