Talking Right! Google? 1st Page Or Last Page?

Now then i have a website!!! shock, and i get the hits (about 10 a day) but i want more!

I have noticed that i need meta tags and keyword density, i have all these things etc but i still dont even feature in the top, at least 10 pages of google?

Has anyone got an explanation for this and also if so how can i fix this problem!?

regards
Matt.

I have recently started working on our site and am new to SEO but have read over & over:

Good Linking Campaign
Age of Website plays a part
Lots of Original Content
Submit your site to directories

And lots of patience

You will have to improve your page rank with google. If you have your key words and meta tags correct, then focus on back links and generating more hits to your website. Also the age of the site is a factor.

Good luck and welcome!

Lightbulb Never underestimate the <TITLE> in your SEO quest!

I've been doing a lot of research in my own quest for SEO -> One thing I was overlooking is the TITLE of each page.

Apparently the title tag is heavily utilised in how search engines rank sites. I've changed the title of each page of my web-site to suit that particular page and thus expanding the possible words that bots use to find my site. It's working already.

(If you have the same title on all pages of your site you limit yourself)

Yeap that's right. Also make sure you name each page or it will just show as "home" or something like that. That's good advice. How many pages do you ever click on that just say "home" in the title?
