Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Doing my best! I have looked at all the "HTML suggestions" and addressed each of those... Also, like I said, we are a 12 year old site with NO problems ever. Google has always seemed to like us.
Possibly, but not bad. Goog shows us at 5-8 seconds a page
Oh, I forgot. Over the past month, I am starting to see a dip in Yahoo... does Yahoo follow Google in any way?

I need content to get ranking. So I add more content, but faster than I get links in, so google stops putting some of my links up.
"Content" is no longer, I feel, about how many different ways you can sort the same pieces of data that many other people have too. While there are various takes on that model that may still be working, ultimately it's going to come down to unique content that's unique enough that it's valued by users and trusted by trusted sites.
even if there is no link the the nonexistant page anymore, since it is dynamically created, if you ASK for it, it will still be there.This is actually pretty bad because (if you are in a competitive environment) someone can actually create those links on a spammy blog of sorts and have Googlebot visit your site and get 1Mil identical (and empty) pages. Definitely not good. I know it is difficult with most out-of-the-box CMS' but you really should find a way to return the proper code (404) if the page is supposed to be non-existent.
I found a good thread by Apache Forum mod jdmorgan regarding sending 410's rather than 404's...Since they are different codes (404 is not found for now and 410 is Gone forever) you may want to reconsider the change if you plan on eventually getting around to more animals and fill in more of the data that the coloring pages are comprised of. Same for habitat, basically. If you are planning to have these pages in the future, 410 is not an appropriate response.
