very low ranking for a popular site RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're trying to improve the ranking for a very popular consumer portal. The keyword we're currently looking at is att.net and the site does not appear anywhere in the first 2 pages of results.  A month ago, we were seeing it on the top of the results for the same keyword. I tried skimming through a bunch of articles but most of them were for smaller websites that dont get that many clicks. This is a popular site with millions of users. Any idea on what might be wrong that our ranking is so low? Any suggestion on this would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks.

  • Hi Brett,

    We have a similar issue with both of our large websites. How can we contact to discuss it?

    Why is it that some sites show the category links when you search for the suffix, but others don't. Our two sites despite being large news sites don't show any categories under the main page when searching the name of it.
