@ wilburforce. I just cannot see what else could be wrong. I have been through everything that I can think of. The only thing that I know is an issue on site is the gallery that I use not adding alt tags to images and the livehelp software that I use breaks validation (along with the lack of alt tags of course). Unless, as you say, google still has stuff indexed that it doesn't like link wise. Not all terms are dropping though - one actually went up a place.
