Cops, remember FAST and Google updates are not on the same frequency nor do FAST usually update the whole index at once, but in smaller portions.

Let us know how the traffic turns out btw.

>what's Google waiting for?

Maybe, the techies to return to the Plex and push the big red button? ;)

I just checked my Alltheweb SERPs. WOW! Top of the heap on everything I am really trying for. I've got the magic Alltheweb touch. Wish I did this well with Google. Or, I wish people used Alltheweb as much as Google.

<<- I wish people used Alltheweb as much as Google.

second that ;o)

ATW is the only *real* competition Google has, if they could get their updates a bit more regular i'm sure they could start attracting more users.

they need to sort out the clustering as well.

IMHO

well im not getting any traffic from alltheweb. Im indexed but all my page links come up under only one word...the domain name (mysite). In the html code i put my domain name for the >title< on every page. would this be why?

hi cops

that sounds like an awful waste of a title to me :o)

do you have a reason for having the domain in the title?

Dazz

<-- sorry not fast enough :o(

4:58 pm on Mar 6, 2003 (gmt 0)



this is my first site. i thought the title was to be the name of my site

all of us have started at some point, at least you have webmasterworld members to give you a hand :o)

you will find all the info you need here in these forums, about title, metas, etc

Good luck with your site :o)

Dazz

p.s In answer to your question, yes this would be why you see lots of results for your domain name, title plays a role in every engines algo not just Alltheweb.

Exactly. Getting tites right is a huge step to success with ATW.

thanks all, is it better to have a couple of keywords in the title or a sentence?

A sentence, so it's good reading for users, containing your keywords. Not too long. There have been great discussions on writing good titles, which apply to all engines. Try site search for "writing titles" and similar.

titles IMHO should contain your main keywords for the page, but also be natural language.

for instance say you sell blue widgets on one page, your title could be something like:

Blue widgets, our guide to blue widgets

obviously you can do better than that, but i think it serves a good example.

notice the keywords are the first words in the title in my experience this helps slightly with rankings.

hope this helps
