Hi. . .

Yup, yet another newbie. I have submitted and submitted and submitted. All to no avail. Tonight, I used a Search Engine Simulator and was shocked to see that my java script was listed above my keywords. Anybody know how to fix this? Anybody know if this is why my pages are either on page 5,600,6000 or not listed at all?
Thanks!

I got a lot of improvement for several sites by moving as much javascript as possible off the page and into external .js files.

Even if your scripts are unique for each page, it could be worth the trouble. Some spiders are incredibly dumb.
And the folks on the forum here have taught me that having too much code relative to the actual content can hurt standings as well.

scosha, drop me the url and let me look - it could be a bug, or a compatability problem with what you are running for code.

If you did this, I didn't get it...
