Navigation is keyword stuffed and I don't think those product descriptions are unique.

I've read the FAQs and searched the help center. 

Our rankings recently dropped drastically.... from being in first 3 for a competitive term within Australia to somthing like #90.

I freaked out and moved the system we were running our site on, which was sometimes quite slow, to bigcommerce.

I don't really know where to turn from here.... I've spent the last couple of weeks going through the thousands of 404 erros that google was throwing as a result of the change, with 301 redirects, but don't really know what I else I can be doing to get the site back to where it was?

TIA!

What competitive term are you looking at
Re: rankings dropped drastically hollygogogear 3/6/13 4:20 PM
most of the products are our own brands so I'd say 80% of the product descriptions are unique.

not sure what you mean by the navigation being keyword stuffed, so I should make my product categories not have the word travel in them?

our main important one is travel accessories

Your on the first page for "travel gear au" and second page 12 position overall  for the 96million results "travel accessories au" So whatever you find won't be glaring. I would wait till tomorrow. and see where you rank.
