I have 3 websites suffering from a drop in ranking with Google and hence a huge drop in traffic. The instant drop ocurred in September and I have not been able to remedy it.
For the past 6-10 years my main website http://LearnToSail.Net has ranked from #3 to #1 on the 1st page of Google and all the other engines with the search term "learn to sail" Now it shows on the 1st page of Bing and Yahoo but does not show up on ANY pages of Google. The only way it does come up is if I add "cd" to the "learn to sail" phrase. We sell a sailing cd on that website.
The other websites are http://LearnToSailOnLine.com ..search terms are "learn to sail online" or learntosailonline
historyofthepilgrims.com search terms are "history of the pilgrims" "historyofthepilgrims"
I get the same result. Gone on Google but 1st pages for Bing and Yahoo.
I have researched, edited,updated blogs, made sitemaps, prayed to the universe and use Google Webmaster tools but nothing is changing and I have lost alot of business.
I host with 1and1.com and have been back and forth with them but to no avail and no change in traffic. I thought maybe some DNS mapping was off. I used to have alot of traffic now I have hardly any.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am still in the process of working on the issue of course!
This is a really great website here and I am glad I came across it. Thank you, LS Cullum Little Pines Multimedia
