Dropped by Google Search Results
All of the sudden I have been droped by google search results, I still have a page rank 2 and I am still getting index every 7 days but all of the sudden I no longer come up on the search results on a key word, If you type in my kennel name i do come up. The only thing I have done was I had taken out Yorkshire Terrier out of my content because it was in there to much and changed it to yorkies, I did not want them to think I was spaming the keyword, and now i do not come up in search results on that keyword. I have changed it back and have been crawled since then and still no results. I also did a Validator.w3 check and I have 90 Errors and 16 warnings, can this be the cause of it. Also Should I pay some one to clean it up as I am not able to do it my self, I do not have the knowledge to do it. but if I could get instructions I could try it myself.
Website is http://www.coronadoyorkies.com
I would really appreciate any help.
Do you mean the keyword Yorkies or the keyword(s) yorkshire terriers? As for coming up for your kennel name, you would, unless thousands of others have the same name.
There are no guarantees with search engine results. Even if you don't change a thing on your page, the alogorithms change constantly, plus other websites emerge or change content or .. etc etc etc.
Read some of the posts on our Search Engie Optimization section of this forum and see how you fare.
As for the validation errors, no they wont affect the search engine rankings. To be honest to tidy up your site would cost a lot of money, it would be cheaper to get someone to do it properly from scratch. But you have tons of metatags which don't count for anything (read the SE section of this forum to find out which you need to use) and one of the ones you have you name all the states of america! what has that got to do with you selling or showing yorkies in oregon?
You then have a line commented out to make it "hidden"
<!--yorkie,yorkie puppies,yorkshire terrier breeder,yorkshire terrier,yorkie puppy,yorky puppies-->
except search engines can read it and it could be viewed as spam! delete that line. Those words are words that go into your meta description or keywords.
Mainly you need to just optimise your site for search engines. Once you have there is nothing more you can do really.
So I wont go into here what you need to do as it is all said in the SE section of this forum. Look through the posts and also read what people ask and the answers given. You will get all the information you need there to improve your site.
Thank you so much for answering all my questions, I was so affraid that all those Meta Tags were going to hurt my ranking, there are so many, I do not know how they all got there, I did not put them there, I know nothing of Meta Tags, I have deleted some and plan to delete a whole bunch more.lol The problem was the key words, when I would type in Yorkshire Terrier CA I would come up on the first page same as Texas, Idaho, and other states, but they no longer come up. My site is not just for selling puppies which I do sell to people out of state, but more for the information, and it is nice to be able to be viewed by the states and other countries. My last dog I bought from Hungry. Any way I no longer come up with those key words, So I guess all good things do come to an end. lol My only priority right now is to try to optimise my site for search engine. Thanks for your help.
Yes you need to delete a lot of those metatags, the SE section of forum will answer you whicih you need to keep and how to use them correctly.
If your site is mainly for information then it doesn't really matter which state does it? In fact it can harm the SE results if you specify words that perhaps are not that pertinent to your content. I mean if I wanted information about yorkshire terriers I would just type in those two words and select any result that came up. If there was a result for yorkshire terrier oregan but I was in the UK I would probably miss that one out and go for a more generic one.
one can be too specific in keywords.
Read through the SE as suggested and if you have any questions about what you have read then respond to that post and will see if we can help.
