Hi guys:
my web site http://www.sdro.com has been in the # 1 position for " San Diego restaurants" for 8 years now. As of 9 months ago a new web site took the position over. We are larger more external links and are older.

I noticed there links when searched link:sandiegorestaurants.com are double from ours. We have since then added 55 domains with links to our page but google.com doesn't seem to pick them up can anyone help me with advice.
Example link page: http://www.wine-steals.com

Best Regards

Its not always your links and age doesn't matter. Also you fell to 3rd place. I looked at the two other websites and they have better content and use of keywords. Your website needs to change with the times. When was the last time you updated its look.

I think you need to look after the keywords and unique and add some quality content and woek after the link building too needed for ranking.

Look after that above things and wait for the results you want.

Keep building up links using the phrase San Diego restaurants in the text that links to your site, mention the phrase in your page title tag, description tag, keywords and in your content once or twice this is all you can do.

If you check
allinanchor: San Diego restaurants
allintitle: San Diego restaurants
allintext: San Diego restaurants

You can see the no.1 site has probably been more proactive than you with a link campaign, you need to work on good quality backlinks.

Age does matter imo and its what's stopped you slipping further away.

Indexed pages are the number of pages in your site that google has indexed.
Links, ie link:www.url.com shows a snapshot of some of the links to your website and is a totally different thing to indexed url's.

If you want a clearer view of your backlinks try using MSN or Yahoo.

The thing that makes the difference here is the name of the domain itself. Google is placing their domain above yours because it actually has all the keywords in it, wheras yours is an acronymn. Hence Google is giving higher relevence to the other site. In this case I don't believe it has anything at all to do with backlinks.

And the fact that imo the site looks spammy with a huge amount of keyword stuffing.
