    Why o Why? MSN #1 Google 40 plus - content management possibly


    I run the fans official Only Fools and Horses web site
    Before i went down SEO, i was around top 20 in google
    #1 in most other engines
    So 2 weeks back i decided update my templates i use and rebalnce my index page for the keyword
    "only fools and horses" bearing in mind "and" isnt important
    now i'm going down and down?
    i add content regularly
    i have 100s of pages
    many backlinks with "only fools and horses" in the link and mostly comedy related

    is this the sandbox thingy
    Can anyone look at my index page and tell me what i'm doing wrong in google
    any ideas whats happening

    thanks for any suggestions but when you follow seo advice and it goes against you it really seems strange

    While not a deal breaker, proper alt tags on your pictures should help some.

    Looks like #1 in G for only fools and horses is a site that redirects to your www.ofah.net. Plus your title and description look a little spammy. Description is way too long. Use keyphrase once in the beginning of the sentence.

    Yes but will that redirect from www.onlyfools.net actually effect my ranking?

    That means someone elses site can effect mine - seems a bit unfair

    Check to see if it's a 302 redirect. It might be affecting your ranking.

    Search on google for tracker2.php and read the info on the first site that comes up.

    its just a small JS script that reloads the page
    so i dont think that is a 302

    Keep in mind google has been dancing a bit also. We are getting a BL update now and we could be an early PR update.

    I read up on the page jacking and i dont think its that
    i follwed the advice of Web CEO
    the advice seemed fine - keyword in alt tag, keyword in bold, keyword in title, keyword at begining and end. Yet i went from 20 to 40 in a few days.

    i just dont get it

    So is that it - the JS redirect

    The webmaster has asked me to run his site
    the logic was to just redirect all bookmarked traffic
    whats the safe way to do this then, with out getting black marked?

    The safest way to automatically redirect from one domain to a new one without upsetting Google?
