Welcome to WebmasterWorld james_G,

james_G,

How are you promoting your site?

Is it a clean domain (registered by yourself, not a domain which was previously owned by someone else)

james

firstly have you got plenty of text content for the spiders to chew over? and you'll need to make sure you've got at least one decent inbound link from a well ranked site already listed in google's db

James,

Get some links incoming to your site.

google loves to feel "look what I've just found all by myself" and the best way to achieve this is to get a site already listed in google to link to your site.

Have you got a dmoz listing? if not get one and one with a high PR

James,

Take a good look at Google Information for Webmasters [google.com]. Specifically note:

The best way to ensure a high listing on Google is for your page to be linked from lots of pages on other sites. Google's robots jump from page to page on the Web via hyperlinks, so the more sites that link to you, the more likely it is that we'll find you quickly.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Dino_M!

For a brief explanation of PageRank see PageRank Explained [google.com] on the Google site.

For many long discussions use the site search function.

I see, is there anyway you can see what page rank google has assigned your website?

If you are using Internet Explorer on Windows you can download the Google Toolbar [toolbar.google.com]. This allows you to see an estimate of the pagerank of any page.

Otherwise you can only see the pagerank of the main page if it is listed in the google directory. I have never done that (since I have the toolbar), you may look at Google Directory PR vs. .Google Toolbar PR [webmasterworld.com] and follow some of the links given there.

james_G, going back to your original question, you could try ditching the 'commented out' text, comments are for notes to the coder, not really meant for keywords!
