It is a long story. But, briefly, I do not know what else to do to get
traffic to our site.
As some of you may know, I have posted a few times in this group (some
answers and some questions) but have been reading it faithfully for a couple
of years. Trying to implement the things I have read.
Basically, I am having a difficult time getting links from quality sites to
ours and can't get my keywords to rank very high to generate a significant
amount of traffic from the organic listings. Anyway, in my diligent
searching to find a way to improve our organic listings, I did a search for
unique text which would most likely be found only on our site. For instance
"custom filter and filter assemblies" from our main page, with quotes, in
Google. Notice we don't even rank (I have just found out that nothing from
our main page ranks in Google for exact phrases from our main page but our
main page is indexed...).
Other pages rank fine for unique to our site text but not the main page and
that "scraper" site comes up.
