    Yet another need help thread


    Hi guys,

    I have been working on http://www.psbspeakers.com for around 6-7 years. I recently redesigned it and it dropped like a bomb. my top search results 'speakers' I went from #1-5 to 40-60. I have no errors and tools like SEOMOZ say my home page is an 'A'

    My question is... am I doing anything you guys can see that would penalize me that much? I am still #1 for my company name

    Please help! I have been hitting my head against a wall for months.

    How long ago did you launch the redesign?

    Most of the time, a redesign tends to throw things off, especially search results. One of the more common things that takes places is URL changes. If you changed your URL's you must 301 redirect all of your old URL's to the new one's. This will help you pass along some of the old link juice you had. Again, it will take some time for things to go back to normal.

    Have you checked your backlinks? Did they drop off or did some of your backlinks get devalued?

    Just stating some of the more common reasons for rankings bombing. I would look at these 2 things first.

    ya I have looked at all that stuff. I was looking for something a little more rare as all the normal stuff you would think about are fine. Maybe something fundamentally wrong with my code?

    Yeah.. 4-5 months out some things should have turned up positive. I wish i could offer some help programming wise but i am not savvy with code.

    Hopefully someone a little more proficient will step to the plate. Good luck.
