I just found this place today. What a resource.
I designed a site for the promotion of a trade specific tool I manufacture, got a host, and had to get back to work. I did not submit the site anyplace.
Now with a reasonable search phrase, I get top, and often #1 listings with most of the search engines. Those same phrases on google get me way back on page 10 or something.
I don't want "sponsored listing" because my customers don't pay any attention to them. I get so much contradictory information about submitting to search engines on the internet that I hesitate to do it with google. I did submit to dmoz yesterday, figuring that was safe enough.
I tried some kind of "test my website" thing, and it appears I don't have a "static" host, and that one of his websites may be "blocklisted" and something about "cloaking".
I made the site with macromedia software, and I'm sure I pushed a "cloaking" button at some point to find out what it would do. I was pushing buttons like a pigeon in those psychology experiments, trying to learn the software.
I hesitate to list my web address because I can't decifer the meaning out of #10 in the posting guidelines.
I'm sure that many of you have sophisticated "website testing" gear, and actually know what the results mean.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
