I am a complete newbie to all of this, but I think I have done alot of things right. I found a niche market, I know my competion, I am priced aggresively, and my site is finally live. Having said that, I think I have done some things badly. My idex page is very simple, with a large graphic at the top of the page, followed by a few links to enter the main portion of the site. This is followed by a short, keyword rich paragraph about my company.
My question is this. is it better to put the keyword rich paragraph at the top of the page, and put the graphics at the bottom? And do the search engines tend to rank you higher if you link directely to them?
If you wish to see the site, please email me and I will provide you with the url.
Thanks in advance for help.
I am really impressed with your site - it looks fantastic. Well done.
I've never heard of engines improving your ranking because you link to them, maybe others know different.
It is the order of the source that the engine's spiders read so you could use an abolutely positioned layer with your KW text. This will allow you to move it nearer the top of the source.
We can see your URL in the user profile bit.
In a word no, but you knew that anyway. My advice is to not start your promotional campaign yet, just hold off a little while and use the time to read, read, read.
One question, do you have any HTML skills youself?
