    Do I have a linking strategy problem?


    Guys,

    My site has a PR5 and I'm quite happy with it for now. However all my pages (other than index page) have PR0.

    http://analogik.com

    This happened when I moved all my content pages from one directory to another.

    ______________________________________

    example:

    before: http://analogik.com/0403/audio.asp
    after: http://analogik.com/audio.asp

    ______________________________________


    Google has indexed ALL of the "0403" pages and probably treats the new ones as duplicate content.

    What can I do to fix this? Is my linking strategy bad?

    It has been 2 months since I made the migration and it's still punishing me.

    All other comments on the site are welcome as I am pretty new to SEO.

    Thank you all!

    The error might me the fact that google has not done a new dance in quite a while (about 2 months). In addition to this, all the of the potential duplicate errors would be gone when the old content drops out of the google index. Google does not want to hold old content that no longer exists, because its function is search and not to copy.

    It is very hard for search engines to find duplicate content and that probably is not even the problem. New articles at large high ranking sites frequently have 0 pagerank until the recache of the web occurs.

    As far as SEO a first starter tip would be to not place your company name in the title. Search listings are never a good place to brand yourself and this kills your titles relevancy.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll remove the name from the title and see how I go.

    Analogik it is the change of the directory that has screwed your internal PR however we are in the middle of the dance and so lets wait and see. Do all your pages show with new directory when you search allinurl:yourdomain.com? If so google has found your new directory path and will bleed PR to those pages in due time and you are fine

    Oh... the magic has happened... this dance is gooooood for me :-)

    Old pages... gone.
    New pages... ranked.

    I have removed the company name from the title leaving only the keywords. I've noticed some lower PRs above me in search results simply because of my non-optimised title.

    Question: Is a leaking PR from a page /page.html (linking to external site) influencing the overal PR on the home page?
