    My site is not being Index Properly in google


    My site has been up now for over a year and my site is starting to vanish with google. My site which is a work in progresss and a directory site was always in the top ten for different area, my site is in2town but now in the past week it has vanished and coming in at the end of the top 100.

    For example Aberfeldy Business Directory

    Chesterfield Business Directory

    etc

    Can anyone please advise me on what I need to do to sort this problem out.

    Many thanks

    A common problem is to have highly similar pages targeting local areas. Without having enough unique content per URL it could fall into Google classification of doorway pages. Try to check it in your site , block all of it in robots.txt or 301 redirect it if you can to your homepage.

    Thank you for this, can you explain more so I can try this tonight. I am new to this side of things so It would be great to understand more. The problem happened a couple of weeks ago, before then all my areas were in the top ten with a large number within the top three but when I changed a couple of things on my site, everything changed and went down hill
