    One of my major competitors is using a site called www.linkmarket.com

    Trying to figure out why I am dropping in the SERPS

    Thank you. Well I dropped a few spots for "junk removal atlanta" but I dropped hard on "junk removal". My plan for now is to maybe right up all new content for the page while using the keywords less than they are now.

    Trying to figure out why I am dropping in the SERPS

    I'm hoping you are joking. Haven't heard anyone say that before. I can agree with you on either adding more content or remove some of the keywords on the page. But I don't know about starting with a new site.

    My website ranking has fallen the recently and I don't know why.

    Thank you Tony. I went ahead and changed a couple of them to "junk hauling" instead of "junk removal" and deleted the unnecessary "junk removal" keywords because I personally think I had too many of them on the page. I hope google likes that!
