Our site is nowhere to be found? :-( RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our site is: www.therussianstore.com

     

    Our main keywords are:

     

    nesting dolls

    russian dolls

    amber jewelry

    glass figurines

    russian hats

     

    But when I search on these, I really don't see our site.  I think our site is well designed, has clean code, a proper robot.txt file, a proper sitemap.xml file.  All was submitted through the web masters tools.  We've been online for a while, but still, our rankings stink.

     

    Anyone have a clue why this might be happening?  Are we penalized for something?

  • Hi Nathan,

     

    You have a pretty good rank, but you might have a duplicate content penalty due to therussianstore.net being the exact same.

  • STOP THE PRESS! after writing my last post www.roythehandyman.co.uk can now be found in live search. But only if i type roythehandyman ! Ah well, At least I have proved that it is possible to be noticed by live search. I shall do some of the things suggested by Live and see if my ranking improves. These days, not showing in at least the first 1 or 2 pages means that you are a nothing.
