I have been working with a web master to optimize client's web site. Using this software he ID'd the top key phrases that a. people are searching under, and b. these key phrasas did not have huge competition. He won't tell me what he is using, but I know it is not Web Gold. Any ideas?, he also attached a number variable for each key phrase tested, i,e. a count above 50 was favorable. Any ideas as to he may be using, and general thoughts on optimizing? As we also did a link campaign where site is a a pr 5 but link page droppped for a 5 to 0, I think becasue of the algorithms that found our site uses "links" on our main menu. YOur thoughts are always appreciated... Australiangirl living in the US
