Does anyone have ideas on how I could create a good clear title that would show searchers what it's about without using poison words?
Thanks for any help. I really want this directory to be one that is easily found in searches.
I just can't see how a word as common as guestbook would be penalised, there must be millions of pages that contain the word guestbook. If they are looking to filter out the guestbook sites then penalising just the word guestbook seems a pretty dumb thing to do. imho
Google tried the filter for a month early last year, then it went back to normal.
Just having the word guestbook wasn't enough, but if the page was largely about the word guestbook (eg. title and body text) then it didn't pass PR.
Most guestbooks have many links and minimal PR, I guess that's why Google didn't keep the filter?
What are some new poison words?
Bookmarks, Links, Resources, Directory, Search Engine, Forum, BBS, in their singular and plural forms are known poison words.
