Crawling, indexing & ranking
Like others on this list, we at NileGuide.com appear to have been devalued relative to sites that have materially worse pages, content, and user experiences. This just happened last week (March 9th), and not several weeks ago with the larger Panda update. For example, for "5 star boston restaurants" we've gone from #1 to #4, with a crappy page from MobilTravelGuide.com now being the top result, even though they have virtually no content on that page related to 5 star restaurants other than a couple links, while we have a list of ten, curated by our local Boston editor, complete with photos, text, neighborhood info, and the like. We're investing a ton to create highly useful travel recommendations for our users with local editors and the like, while low-quality sites are suddenly outranking us. Any insights would be appreciated.
