Sometimes posts fall through the cracks, sometimes the answers are already here, and sometimes we're busy making a living at this stuff (though forum work is all volunteer). Sorry if you didn't get the answer you were seeking here, but I'm glad you did get it answered somewhere.

Hi, sorry I wasn't able to get to you post. Glad you were able to find what you needed. The themes thing is definitly more difficult with lots of terms. I have some theories on how to set up the terms with funky ranking algorythm I have in my head. If were a programmer I would try and build it but I really only know html. If you would like me to try and explain it just let me know.

Wildlife, it was a generic question that really didn't have an easy answer.
I wouldn't focus on the products to build the theme, I would focus on 'gifts, presents, birthdays' and the whole set of 'gift' related keywords. The products are very hard to build a theme around because they work against each others keyword pool. If the products themselves are all close related keywords, it isn't too bad, but I am finding general merchandise is difficult.

I would be interested to hear your theories. I have recently purchased 200 domain names with the intention of programatically addressing the theming algorithm.
On a related note, I have just had a bizarre referal to one of my sites. A surfer entered the search phrase "Henry Cooper" (a famous British boxer) and hit my site www.boxer-breeders.co.uk. Is this a case of theming being too clever for its own good ?

Mark Roach, from what engine? That is very sophisticated lexical analysis - even if it is missing the mark.

The engine was msn.co.uk. Strange thing is that I can not reproduce the results, even by using the exact url in the referer log. Do you thing they may have been testing out a new algo or database ?
