Ted, that's very interesting. The top 10 "Galleries' that have now taken my rank, have NO TEXT. Absolutely none. I added text to all of my pages, but reading it back, it's definitely over optimised and I think that's caused the issue.
Are there any tools or further guides you recommend Ted? I'm going to experiment with the problem page and report back.
edit: actually, looking at my pages, even top ranking pages, there are lots of potential issues.
For example, on a gallery page, the links have there might be 50 links to widgets. Green widgets, blue widgets, orange widgets. Each has the word "widgets" in the anchor text. I've now changed it to "blue", "orange". Which actually makes more sense.
The opening paragraph of the page, also started with the target keyword. All of that combined with the url, title and h1 being a perfect match, was a little OTT.
In my experience, when the issues are fixed, the page quickly re-ranks. I'll update this if the page comes back to life.
