I appologize, but we are just trying to ensure that something is being done to ensure that we do end up on the top of the results with as many search terms or keywords as possible. The thing that concerns us the most though is that on search engines such as Yahoo that have been updated with the new information we are showing lower on identical search terms than before the SEO campaign. Our site has already been spidered with what seems to be the new meta information etc in yahoo and is coming up 4 positions lower on 5 keywords thus far. I understand and can appreciate the amount of time before we are listed with these other search engines, but am confused on why on those search engines that are updated such as Yahoo why we are now in lowering positions or ranks for almost all search terms when compared to how it was prior to the SEO campaign. I hope you understand I am not tyring to be hard to get along with, rather am simply confused why we are showing lower rank on almost every
search term on Yahoo who does appear to have the updated meta information. I thank you for your time and understanding with this matter.

If you could please do me a favor and do a search on Yahoo for the following keywords you will get a better understanding of what I am speaking of. Below are just a few keywords off Yahoo to give you an idea how drastically our rankings have suffered form those engines that have already crawled. Please let us know what will be done to get these ratings higher. These won't go from no reference to #1-3 without a change as they have already been spidered and show updated on Yahoo. If I am missing something please let me know, thank you.
Here's just a few keywords that we have gone done or dropped totally from:
wholesale video game, first result is #15 on page 2 and is for our old site not our current site we use to fluctuate between 2 and 4 for this term before the SEO.
video game distributor, first reference again is to our old site and is #7 used to fluctuate between #2-3
video game wholesaler, NO reference at all used to be #9
video game supplier, first reference #5 used to be #1-#3 normally #1
wholesale distributor, NO reference at all used to fluctuate between #9-11

Hello I inform you that as the search enngine crwals the site also crawls depending upon the traffic generated. Its not your site there are thousands of sites crawl every day so this fluctation arises. It will almost take 90 to 120 days to get listed in major search engines according to the rules of search engines. I assure you once again that kindly be patience your site will be listed in search engines dont get panic.

I appreciate you doing the SEO campaign for us however, we are getting concerned that not one keyword ranking went up as of yet. Unfortunately we have confirmed all rankings went down for related identical search terms when compared to before the campaign, and we have even been delisted with some search engines like DMOZ and Google totally for some reason. How long do you anticipate before we began appearing on DMOZ and Google as well as at the very minimum get back to the keyword rankings we had before the start of this SEO campaign? I understand it takes time, but we are a business that relies soley on PPC, SEO, newspaper ads, PR releases, and the like to promote our site. We have really pushed newspaper advertising lately and it did get us the results we were hoping it would, but now we are seemingly delisted with some of the search engines that we use to rank #1 or #3 with before the implementation of the campaign. If you look at Alexa ratings of our site you will notice a huge increase in daily views when we began advertising heavily before the SEO campaign, but since the start of the campaign the page views have gone down substantially as we are almost not appearing anywhere at all anymore. I understand it takes time, but right now we are almost not appearing at all on the vast MAJORITY of keywords on the major search engines like Yahoo, Google, DMOZ, etc. I understand rankings go up and down, but they have only gone done thus far and not one search engine have our rankings gone up by even one ranking position. We have even began not appearing at all on seach engines we used to appear under identical search terms. We would like to ensure that someone is actively working to ensure we are listed properly on those selected keywords on all search engines including but not limited too Yahoo. Google, DMOZ, Lycos, MSN, etc, etc, etc. Please understand that we do appreciate your work and understand ratings fluctuate, but we should not have gone done in rankings everywhere like we have done thus far. Please let us know what is being done to ensure higher rankings, and when to expect for us to be relsisted with DMOZ, Google etc. I am not trying to be a pain, but our page views and subsequently sales have suffered tremendously as a result of no longer showing up at all on some engines and much lower on others in the past week. I do appreciate your help and understanding with this matter. Thank you for your time and patience.
