I read the other posts back in July on themes and found it quite helpful but do have a another question. How would one go about establishing a theme for a gift shop? Would the focus of each page be the particular item you have relegated for that page? And would the theme be the nature of all the gifts you are offering, in my case, wildlife gifts? I also have several pages on endangered species information. I tried figuring out on paper the k1,k2 etc. that oilman had said in that particular post, but I'm afraid that I can't quite grasp how I would go about it with so many items and information. Would someone help lead me in the right direction?
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 ?
