Thanks Lee...I saw that in Web Pro news and was going check it out...I have spent most of my time on Page Titles and Meta Descriptions so from this little video it makes me feel I have been spending my time wisely.....I do think that the point is still making content...page title...meta descriptions and key words/phrases relate to each other.

Hello Emmy....I am curious about your thoughts on this...My thought is that while the keywords may not help with rank they may help with search....For example two site with the same rank selling the same sort of items....The site with the better keyword selection/relevance is more likely to show higher in search?

That might be the case, but so many other factors come into play such as backlinks, domain age etc. The search engine has lots of metrics to look at, and although I don't know everything there is to know, I am sure that if one site had better meta tags and keyword density, but only 20 backlinks, and the other site had ok meta tags and 2,000 backlinks, the search engine will look upon those factors when deciding where to list each.

I think this is why SEO is not a short process and is ever evolving. You can lay the ground work with expert meta tags, keyword density, internal linking etc, and then build on that by developing lots of backlinks.

Hope that helps!

Excuse the pun but I think the keyword is "evolving" and trying to keep up with what search engines are looking for at a given moment.

I don't see what all the fuss is about.
The best way to get your site up the rankings is to sit down and say to yourself, 'If I was looking for my site what words would I put in the search box'.
Then armed with this list put them into the text content on as many pages as you can, and also the 'keywords' in the meta tag heading thingy.

Believe me this works. I have a site about a polio group in Manchester in the UK, very little traffic, a few links, I have not asked google to validate it but type 'polio manchester' in google and see where I am.
Gone on then I'll tell you............................number 1.

Its the URL thats the SEO jem here. But the point of good SEO is maybe i could make a site which has nothing to do with polio or manchester in the URL and with good SEO take the number 1 spot - your talking about a very specific search also.

Hi Duke
Sorry for the delay in answering your questions; I've just got back from stormy Spain.
Yes this is my website and at the moment I pay for a multi site package from bpweb.net.
I appreciate your comments about good SEO and will look into this aspect shortly.
It would be nice to see my site top of the list if someone typed just 'polio'.
