I`m beginning to think that my graphic design website needs a complete overhaul as far as keywords & meta tags
There has been some recent postings about how SEO is easy and there is no need for professional help. I hope you dont mind, but I would like to use your site as an example for the typical "do-it-yourself" SEO issues we see over and over........
Lets just look at your meta-tag information. Here it is right off your websites code.
keywords" content="multimedia, multimedia presentations, CD-ROM, business card cd, business card cds, business card cd-rom, business card cd-roms, cd business cards, cd-rom business cards, Lyfe, Lyfe Productions, audio, video, conversion, music, vhs, vhs to dvd, dvd, vcd, vhs to vcd, cd, dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd+rw, convert, convert to dvd, vhs-c, vhs-c converted to dvd, to dvd, video, jewel case, jewel cases, cd labels, service, musicians, vinyl to cd, vinyl, audiocassette to cd, Christmas card, Christmas Cards, Christmas card cd, Christmas Card CDs, CD Christmas Cards, CD Christmas Card, CD-ROM Christmas Card, CD-ROM Christmas Cards">
You have everything from audio to musicians to cd christmas card. Now, take a look at your home page. How many times do any of these "keywords" appear in your content?
You have 1 paragraph of content.
Here is the definition of a meta tag:
A specific kind of HTML tag that contains information not normally displayed to the user. Meta tags contain information about the page itself
In the SEO world, we use meta information to give the search engines an idea of what we want indexed. If it was as easy as just listing the "keywords"....everyone would have every keyword possible in their meta information. There needs to be a clear direction for everything you do for SEO. There needs to be some thought behind choosing an SEO strategy. Meta information is just one piece of the puzzle, you also must consider content, links, page descriptions, keyword density...on and on.
So, you are actually hurting your search engine friendliness, instead of helping.....Here are just some of your issues.....
1) The "keywords" used as meta tags need to be more specific and must be narrowed down. You cant tell Google that your page is about "musicians" if its not.
2) You have no content!!! When Google or Yahoo send their spiders out to collect information about your site, what will they bring back? Do you think the site would rank highly in their eyes for graphic design (which isn`t even one of your "keywords").
I hope you take this the right way....I hope it helps you and I wish you the best of luck!
GO GET IT!!!!!!
