    just a quick update to this - apparently it was a tim thumb hack exploited by creating 100's of similar pages and appending pharma links to each copy of the page.

    so i cleared them from the cache directory and updated the fixed copy of tim thumb but the problem with ranking persisted - literally last week i discovered the problem - when these fake pages were created they used the list variable - webmaster tools showed google had cached 438 copies of my home page and because the list variable url crawling was set to crawl all the links were still showing - i set no crawl to the list variable and the sites now starting to move
