I have 2 sites that currently have been in that state for the last year and its really annoying me.
I don't want to waste time in getting new links and use different anchor text if nothing will happen.
The site is in a commercial sector with high priced keywords in demand. A UK Job site. Established c 9 months.
I currently have loads of main pages and sub domains with PR5 pages and links built up etc. Pages titled and rich in content.
Currently i dont feature for ANY keywords in Google what so ever. The only search i have found the site with keywords for is "insurance Jobs" where the site is position 370
What is odd about this position 370 is that sometimes its my main site page results for insurance Jobs that show ie mysite.co.uk/js_jobsearch_sec.asp?sectors=15 and other times its my subdomain insurance.mysite.co.uk/jobs
Anyone else had a similar experience?
Meanwhile, google bot visits my site every day, at least 50,000 hits PCM and if you search my site name in google i have over 30,000 pages listed yet none are indexed other than the one above.
With regard to the original posters question i would say leave it well alone, getting some free traffic out of google is good enough. If you change it and dont get listed you might not be able to go back - who knows?
May i ask if your site is older then 9 months hence is that why you dont have pages sandboxed?.
If you already have 300-500 good keywords bringing your site up why change things?
Do you operate in the UK or US?
Good luck with your site, sounds like you have cracked it with Google!

If you already have 300-500 good keywords bringing your site up why change things?Because 3 – 5000 would be ten times better :)
Do you operate in the UK or US?I operate in both the US and UK

Plus I want to diversify the markets that this site operates in.
If both your sites are already that well-established and recognised and your additions are "on-theme" with your current content, why should there be a problem?
You are simply adding new content pages within your site and so long as it is relevant it will be picked up and displayed very quickly although it may take a month or two to climb up towards the top.
If you are thinking of changing the keywords on exisiting pages I have never had a problem with that at all other than, as said, waiting for them to climb back up.
Don't expect to come steaming in at #1 for a completely new set of keywords.
Hang in there. Fortunately I've never experienced this even with new sites however I have always ensured that they have good links from authority sites when launched.
Do you have that? If not, get them, if you do, there is thread after thread about it and I feel sorry for you, there seems to be no solution...yet!
Quite simply, issuing relevant new pages within an established site has never been a problem for me.
Bet we hear from someone who has had a problem though!
>What if I pick a new keyword, new topic and put up a new page?
If it's relevant, and why should it not be, absolutely perfect.
I try and add a couple of new pages every week, all using the same template but all with new title bars, meta tags etc and all new relevant information to MY site.
If you do try and plagerise someone else's work do make sure that you change it around sufficiently for Google to recognise it as different/new/relevant.
After all, there's only a few ways to describe the same thing so flower it up and sprinkle it liberally with your new keywords placed strategically.
>That was my point - the new word is not relivant.
Then unless someone types in more or less your description it's very doubtful you'll rank very well.
Off-topic pages seem to have been hit hard which is why the authority pages are coming to the fore even more...as they should.
Brixton's experience is a perfect example however there is nothing to stop you trying since it will not diminish your other pages, just in case you were worried about that, well, not that I've ever noticed.
