I currently have 387 pages ranked in INK in the top ten for their search term - with a lot more to build. The search terms are very cookie cutter... Like Apple, Red Apple, Green Apple, Yellow Apple and so on. There is really no way to create completely unique pages (and live long enough to complete the site) Does the "theme idea" suffer from cookie cutter pages and will "like links" (apple sites linking to apple sites) improve on the theme?

A little off topic but worth mentioning - my competition has 4,900+ pages that are exactly a like except for the keywords sill in AltaVista. I got caught in the big change and have zero. His pages were last submitted or spidered in 1998 in INK - likely AV as well...

If you have that many pages top ten - don't be greedy - leave it alone. Seriously, any page that is top ten, don't mess around with it until it falls

I prefer to call it prepared. WE are doing very well with keyword stuffed, cookie cutter pages - but I don't beleive we can ride that horse forever. WE are starting to see sites that relate to the topic but not the keyword climb and in some cases overtake our pages. If you kept the user and password and domain I e-mailed you in regards to Traxis, please feel free to take a look at the refers and the pages around us.
