Hi Joel, Yes, it's been several years for one site and about 8 months for the newer one. No they are not uncommon keywords. One site is a bed and breakfast, so keywords are lodgings, inns, bed and breakfast, etc And the other is a maid cleaning service, so both are very common services. I wondered it that made the sites be lost in the crowd. They are both in Google places though, and both have been submitted to Google for over 3 months.

Are they reasonably uncommon keywords or phrases? Are those keywords used at least once, preferably 2 or 3 times, in a natural way, in the text on those pages? Has it been at least 3 months since the pages were created or updated with that information? -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
