    Well to me the Keyword "Insurance" appears to many times. Sounds like Keyword Spamming got you banned. I did a report on that site and yup the report said Keyword Spamming. I would remove a lot of words containing the "insurance" word. Also your link text has a lot of "insurance" words in it too.

    See this is why I am working on a SEO Resource guide containing worlds elite SEO people. Not trying to self promote but I feel way to many people fall in the dark eyes of Black Hat SEO. It's like smoking they tell you it's bad and have free services to help you stop. Anyone getting my point?

    All I can say is that according to marketleap it's gone from 6000 to less than 1000 BL's in very short order. It leads me to believe that it's just not Google.

    I looked at the code to see if there were any tricky Javascript redirects and NOPE there are non. Does anyone else have any idea's? I know it has to be some type of on-page stuff that's getting him banned. Or maybe linking to FFA sites (Free for All)

    Well then it must be his link partners. Hmmm does anyone know from Yahoo what kind of sites that site is linking to since links are not showing in the big old G.

    Well the links I see in Yahoo look like great links for the site. I'm stumped on an answer. Yahoo reports 782 links pointing to the site. WOW 6000 links down to 782? What's going on?

    sjbc,

    Your friend, Steve, already posted in another thread over in the PageRank forum about Traffic-Power getting him banned.
    http://forums.seochat.com/t12672/s.html

    Apparently, this is a snowballing trend among TP customers at the moment.
    There's been quite a few threads on this already.

    Jane already gave him some advice in the other thread, but I'll tell you what I know.

    #1 - Have him remove all 100 mouse-over redirect doorway pages they put on his site.
    #2 - Go ahead and take the opportunity to clean up anything else that Google might find "spammy" while you're at it.
    #3 - After the site is cleaned-up, email webmaster@google.com and explain the whole situation of how he got scammed.
    Google seems to be well aware of what's going on with TP's customers and according to Jane, some of the sites that were banned are already starting to be spidered again.

    Good luck.

    probably some kind of doorway page cloaking .... like this www.searchenginecloaker**.com

    that would also explain why their backlinks crashed ....

    My original thought was the combination of keyword density plus the location of insurance repeatedly could lead a bot to think this is a spammer. but i'm just guessing
