sloppy code? I have a site that is a customized e-commerce template. Horrible, archaic code. It took over #1 spot for its main money word. It is also annotated "4 posts" from the comment section (being confused for a forum). And it has a dark background, generic file names for design graphics, even worse file names for product images, etc. Zero ads, hundreds of incoming affiliate links. Only the most basic of out of the package SEO done on it. (SEO was never a primary marketing strategy for the site.)
I know its not on the list of what is being examined here, but should put to rest some of the ideas floated so far.
