Google has dropped me about 100 places for my keyterm

    My site was performing quite happily on Google until the Jagger update, ranking number 3 for teen forums on Google. We still rank in the top 3 in both the other search engines and relevancy speaking we should really be up there but Google has generally been bouncing us around between the 50 and 150 ranks for the last 3 months, often behind teen pornography sites.


    The site in question is www.rouseindahouse.com

    Before this our site had been in that specific ranking comfortably for over a year and we're not a particularly new site, I like to think we're pretty well established. It just seems a bit weird that we've been penalized in this way rather than being dropped from the rankings, and I'm guessing we've been penalized as Google traffic has all but dropped.


    Just to clarify, I'm not looking for reviews of the site, I'm looking for suggestions and ways to make improvements to the ranking to get it back to it's previous position.

    Yeah, having a few problems with it now. It's accessible through a proxy though. I'll post again when it's accessible normally.

    Ok, the site is back up now. Other things, that may be of interest.

    MSN ranks us third, Yahoo ranks us first. Google is still showing over 100,000 pages for the site. It's quite similar to the thing that happened to shoemoney recently. We've not been dropped at all, just our rankings have all but disappeared.

    Any ideas? Could it be to do with the co-op ad network or am I clutching at straws?
