What was the PR 2mts ago, have you gone down a notch?
Have a look at the link text linking to the higher sites nad your own inbound link text...
Guess What --- The search phrase, that he has in his domains ALWAYS puts his site 1 or 2 above ours.... I dont think this is fair being that we have a lot more page rank and CONTENT CONTENT CONTENT!
A lot of people saw their long-standing sites 'disappear' for their 'primary' keywords last month, but still retained traffic because they still ranked for many other terms. There is speculation that the disappeared listings are somehow related to Google AdWords. Do you still rank for minor keywords?
Nick - PR and inbound links have not moved for atleast 3 months - we are not actually working on the site at present but the client asked us to report.
"Have a look at the link text linking to the higher sites and your own inbound link text... "? Most of the inbound links are from the primary keyphrase text.
Quiet_man - the site does not show for the primary keyphrase or other keyphrases - it doesn't even score highly when you type in the name of the company. BTW I check 100 results per page and use IE "Find" to look for the domain name.
I once got a good tip on this forum: keyword density 8-12% is fine. I can confirm this value.
The description you get from Odp, LS, Y!
If you got the words in url and the first header and the title, there is a big chance that you have that description you want in the directories. And then you got the right linktext from the big cats with the high PR.
But yes the keyword rich url will give som boost.
For a couple of mounth ago there was a site with kw1-kw2.com and in the title there stood "Test" and in the body it stood "Test", the funny thing was that the site was in the 6 place in the searchterm kw1 kw2
So kw in the url is a good thing.
