Crawling, indexing & ranking
Please Google, re-evaluate your definition of quality. My http://www.jscinvestments.com/ is another example of collateral damage cause by Panda. I challenge you to find any other site for rent to own homes that provides a similar approach. Also, ALL listings are created by the public. Nothing is copied or scraped, etc. Is my value lower than that of some of my competition that has virtually no listings because they are in the scam site dmoz.org and I'm not? There's one value metric you ought to adjust. dmoz.org is pathetic and crooked. Did my site lose value because you devalued the importance of inbound .edu links to punish overstock.com? I have a few unsolicited inbound .edu links. Is that causing a devaluation? Since my site is totally free to all buyers and sellers, I monetize it via AdSense and affiliate advertising. Does this lower my quality? I recently removed all affiliate advertising to see if my ranking improves. So far it hasn't. Should I continue to wait and see while my income is further reduced? You say you want quality sites that provide value to the public. Well, JSC Rent To Own Homes allows sellers to view all listings created by buyers for free – free leads. That’s real value. It also allows buyers to browse all seller listings for free. There’s not even any registration required. What other site does this? Google, you were my inspiration for taking this approach. You don’t charge people anything for using your website, nor do I.
