Hello All,

I have about a dozen websites. Most are my own and I have great msn rankings in about half of my sites . one is consistantly Number 1 in
it's keywords.

My Problem is: I have design website for bridesmaid gift, dress,jewelry. Now if I put site:www.xyz.com in msn then it is showing me result as "We did not find any results for site:www.xyz.com". Before 2 months my site was on 1st page in msn for all main keywords. Currently site is ranking in google and yahoo. But I have noticed from last 2 months my listing has been completely disappeared from the msn search. So my question is how can I determine if msn have banned my site. OR they have just not crawled the site into their search.

Please tell me how can I check for the possible msn ban or what i can do get it crawled soon.

Looking for your expert opinion.

Best regards,
Namrata

Have you, to your knowledge, done anything with the site that could have attracted a ban?

Sorry to ask, but you didn't indicate one way or t'other.

I've had a site totally disappear and don't consciously know of anything whatsoever that could cause a ban - except 301 for www and non-www and a change of hosts/IP number.

hello,

I have uploaded reference pages on my site. I have created unique reference pages for different keywords to increase volue of site. I have 140 oneway links for my site. I also have also created resource page on site, which is useful for reciprocal link campaign.

Please advise.

namrata, have you done any 301's on the site?

I really believe there can be a problem with that, I'll be going through this particular site and checking all the current live URLs and also, all the internal linking.

Please tell us a little more about those reference pages.

Hi,

I have'nt done any 301 on my website. My all optimized pages are closed to the root directory. I believe as pages closer to the root directory are often given more weight with the engines; e.g., www.domainname.com/page1.htm

We have created the reference pages for all my main keywords. I have cereated individual pages for each keyword. I have keyword-rich content on these pages. We have added internal links in our reference pages on the home page. I believe that this will make website more user and search engine friendly. I have added internal anchor tags on reference pages.

We have added internal links in our reference pages on the home page.

It's possible your keyword density exceeded MSN's liking when you added the links to home page.

My couple of site too not showing any pages when I search using site: command.

My sites were down for a day or two? Guessing this might have caused to deindex my site pages. Is your site too down for some time?

After August 06 update: After much testing, I lowered KW density...all my pages are back up and ranking well on MSN.

*Here is what I found...use KW no more that 2 times in Description Meta Tags.
*Keep overall page density under 3%.

DON'T over optimize Meta Tags or Page Body...
choose 3 or 4 KW's in your Description and use no more than 2 times...all others 1 time.
Use the same KW's for page body and keep in the 3% range. All other page body KW's keep at 1% to 2%.

Yahoo also seems to like this density...traffic has increased.
Google is not a big traffic generator for us yet, so I can't say.
If Google is your main SE with plenty of traffic, I wouldn't touch a thing, however if MSN and Yahoo are your main SE's...the above worked well for us.
Hope this helps.
