My site (best and then adventure and then jobs co uk - all one word but not writing it here else this forum page will outrank us too) disappeared from position 2 on page 1 for "adventure jobs". It happened when they did that triple change that included exact match domains. I have had a look at many aspects to try to see what google dislike, but I am at a complete loss now. Sub pages rank well for some keywords, but it is as though the home page has been blackballed.
I did a reconsideration request in webmaster tools, but it came back saying there is no manual penalty. Our one page parent company domain, which has no relevant content, other than mentioning our adventure site, is on page 6 for that keyword, while our full on adventure site is nowhere to be found.
Is it possible to employ people to audit something like this? I have had a few speculative SEO calls but they all seem aimed at people who are clueless. Where does one find people who can trouble shoot these sudden drops in ranking?
