Great post. I was hoping that I could ask you a few questions.
Most of the time it might have been a canonical issue, or over use of anchor text KWs in your webpage and the links pointing to it.
Can you tell me if anchor text KWs means the keywords appearing in the body text of the page? Blue widgets, for example?
Also, does links pointing to it mean internal links going to the page or inbound links? And were these links using as anchor text keywords (e.g. blue widgets) that the page is trying to rank for?
2. Replaced all my image tags to 1-2 words, very basic description
By image tags, do you mean the alt text for the images?
7. Removed a lot of bold text
Did you have keyword phrases and related keyword phrases in bold? Or were entire paragraphs in bold that contained some of your keyword phrases?
