Hi there!

I am new to search engine submissions and am trying out my skills on a colleagues site. Her site is about multiple births. I analyzed her keywords and multiple is one of her strongest keywords on her site.

When I do a search using AllSearch Engine Position Analyzer, it says that her site does not come up in the top 50 at AOL. I read the AOL site on how to submit and was looking for the best category - turned out to be Home - Family - Multiples - Parenting....she was there!

So her site is listed in the parenting section of multipes and yet when you do a search for multiples at AOL, it doesn't come up. Does this mean that I need to modify they keywords AOL is using?

I thought this would be easier *grin*

Hi Mike!

If you do a search on any of those terms at AOL, her site (www.mom2many.com) does not show up right away, though if you work your way down the page you have the option to narrow your search - if I narrow it to the appropriate category then she shows up.

Problem is, who narrows their search by category *grin* If I wanted a directory, I'd use it....I want to find results through a search engine ;-)

Are there any programs that take those common search words one step further and tell you what pages people viewed after searching with those terms?

Is the moral of the story that if no one is looking for what you have to offer, that doing everything else right doesn't really matter? *grin*

so lets look at the tags
Title: Put multiples @ or close to the front
KW: get it up front, take out reference to domain name, cut the rest down to very focused group
Desc: reduce from 294 characters to a theme message

"For Parents of Multiples Across Canada, Mom2Many.com is an internet community for Canadian parents of twins, triplets and higher order multiples."
