Cabbie, what I am referring to as standard SEO strategies are insuring that each Page has a unique Meta Titles relevant to content. Unique descriptive tags, proper h tagging relevant to the content, a XML site map etc. Backlink development only to trusted sites. Unfortunately, at times a site will come to us with the baggage you describe. Many of our clients use their sites for validation purposes, growing dominance in the marketplace is a secondary concern, but we have several that take an aggressive position on growth. If the poorer performing sites, sites that have been impacted by penguin or EMD or other ranking penalties, are effecting the rankings of sites not effected by these changes due only to their being associated on my master client GWMT I need to take action. But this means that, no longer is there a single point of access. Accessing each client site WMT will require unique authentication, tedious.
