I've been reading a lot here on webmaster world and truly examining why our 15 year old ecommerce site could have produced a potential false positive. We don't buy links, have done some in-house SEO but mainly changes over the last year or so have been to benefit customers. The only thing we have not changed is our left hand navigation.
I've really looked into what our competitors have done with site design/layout etc and the only big thing that stands out is that we have some left hand navigation. Could it possibly be that having this site wide left hand navigation is what is producing some sort of penalty or giving us a "low quality" score of some kind?
I'm just curious if others here also have left hand navigation.
We're seriously considering getting rid of it, but I think that it may make site navigation harder for customers.
Any input on this would be most appreciated.
