I presume this is because this content existed on the old site, but is not any more on the new site since you had to rebuild it from the scratch?
This is because we aren't ranking for the term, that we were before the recent drop. i.e. the user searches green widgets and doesn't find our website, and so has to search specifically sitename green widgets. Why some users do that rather than just coming to the site and choosing them, is beyond me haha.
you could create to cater for these visitors?
Yeah, we'll use that data, combined with analytics and recent trends etc to create these hubs.
Realmaverick, I haven't read the other threads so if they answered this question, sorry: how certain are you that all the user generated content on your site is original? Images can be "dupe content", which could cause Panda problems.
Some artists are exclusive to our website, some stopped sharing their work for 9 months while we rebuilt. Some belong to other communities and also share their work. We can't really tell them they have to be exclusive, well I guess we could, but it wouldn't go down very well.
