...if your site should rightfully be ranking higher, Google obviously found a reason why it shouldn't
BTW, I dont know if anyone else has noticed this but google is showing slightly different results depending on how you search. I am getting slightly different results in chrome than I do FF (both have web history disabled). I also sometimes get different results in FF if I go to google.com and search vs searching directly through the firefox google search bar.
...in truth it is a creepy multi-national company that spies on us
Which is why I don't use Gmail.
When a 10 year old site converts well for 9 of those years then 2010 comes along and everything goes to pot, I gonna venture a guess and say it's not the site owner who messed it up.
openly endorsing other search engines on their web sites.
I get so many webmasters come to me claiming how they have "no idea in the world" how they were penalized, dropped down etc and then when I check their website its apparent almost immediately.
