JL's Columbia SC Real Estate Blog: Website Troubles

Website Troubles

Lately, my website has begun to fall in ranking on Google. I'm not sure what the problem is, and I can't seem to stop it. I was on page one for several of my keywords, and overnight I dropped back several pages for some reason. This happened once before, and within a week, everything went back to normal and I did nothing different. Now, it's been two weeks and I can't seem to pinpoint the issue. As if that's not bad enough, the site is starting to fall even further in the ranks.


If anyone has an ideas or suggestions, please let me know. I need to know how to reverse this process and get my website back on track.

I've been having the same trouble with our website. I have number1expert.com In doing some research we've changed a few things including adding blogs to our websites he said that would place us higher also I have auto email sign up on my website I had mine turned off so customers would not have to sign in to view homes. He told me I need to have that turned back on because I could get more leads from it  he said that would also help place higher? Who knows but I'm going to try these things and see if it works. Any other suggestions from anyone would help.

I had seen this with mine also and who knows why?  I will be checking with web personal to see if they have any ideas.

Google changes their programming from time to time. They re-write their algorithms, and everyone's placement changes. The it's trial and error for webmasters to start to figure out what will bring back positioning under the new algorithms. (BTW, once everyone's got it somewhat figured out, Google will change their algorithms again!)

Get rid of the red font and the link exchanges.  Email me directly for other tips, but those of us at AA are struggling.  I see quite a few things you should consider changing on your website.
