Why I am not ranking well?
I have a fairly new website that has 273 total pages that has been up since Dec 2004 http://www.quoteforinsurance.com
. Ranked well in Y! in late Jan-mid Feb. Then I was cast into the Y! blackhole
Here are my Yahoo details:
33 pages indexed
No where in the top 200 SERP's for my competitive keywords. I haven't even been able to find my site for non-competitive terms.
Ranking in the 40-160 range in Google for the same mid to very competitive terms
Backlink count: 1780
223 pages indexed
Ranking in the 1-30 range in MSN for the same very competitive terms
273 pages indexed
I just can't figure out why I am not in the Y! SERPs? Slurp is visiting and crawling my site daily. I broke down yesterday and ordered the directory submission hoping that would do something. There are other sites that are ranking well that aren't in the directory. But I don't know what else to do.
I could really use some expert advice on this one.
