  1. SEO

    Form Processor

    Read this thread (and click on the 'script')... Jack has made it very easy.
  2. How about a table tutorial?
  3. No joke on you... you have not been around this family long enough, no meanness around here. Tables are pretty basic so, we just assumed. Sorry. ><table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tr> <td><div align="center"><img src="Image1Here.jpg" width="200" height="375"></div></td> <td><div align="center"><img src="Image2Here.jpg" width="200" height="375"></div></td> <td><div align="center"><img src="Image3Here.jpg" width="200" height="375"></div></td> </tr> </table> Make sense?
  4. Scenario: Government site with weekly uploads consisting of minutes from various committees (MS Word files). Is .pdf the way to go? I want quick and easy. Actually, I would love them to do it in-house but it would have to be very cookbook. Thanks for any advice.
  5. Do not forget 'omit blank fields' option [way to go Jack, actually with as many threads that have been started (and addressed) with 'formmail' in them... this might be a 'time' saver.]
  6. Raw logs were discussed here. Are you sure you need another web stats package? Just want to make sure you are aware of what is already set-up in your cPanel. They are not 'real' sophisticated stat packages but do come with the basics.
  7. mod_rewriteing for session id's only purpose is to have Google index the pages.... Thus, the answer is very clear when we look at your site No distinction, if an internal page has a PR of 5 and an external page has a PR of 5 and both have only one outbound link pointing to page A. They would have the exact same contribution to page A's PageRank. Google actually shows 11,500 of your pages indexed. It is just a majority of these pages have low or no PR. I would tend to agree.
  8. I am just summarizing what I am 'seeing' (in the order that I am looking). 1. PageRank = 3 2. Backward Links (relevant) = 12 3. Backward Links (total) = ~11,800 (Wow!) 4. Total pages indexed = 11,500 5. I did not notice any red flags (not that I looked at all potentials). Bottom line, this site is not optimized. Jack I would like to give you more but I have to be careful with my time (and this site does not meet TCH's criteria, see below comment). Bill and I (and my wife and I) have talked at length about me 'giving' a lot of pertinent SEO information away free. The writings I have offered here are actually quite valuable. I am not trying to toot my own horn here, I am just trying to explain the awkward position of determining "What is too much?" Some have suggested that I passed that quite awhile ago In addition, Bill and I decided that any 'free' SEO evaluation should only be done on TCH sites and whose sites clearly reference Total Choice Hosting with a potentially beneficial backlink (not an unreasonable request at all). One option we have considered in this regard is a paid consulting service that would be structured around a password protected SEO forum. Still not sure about this one, to be honest I am concerned with my time. Others have approached me in this regard (e.g. wanting specific SEO guidance rather then hiring for the service) and it would seem that this would be the logical route to take. The problem is that the time involved in 'telling' someone how to optimize a site versus optimizing that site is not much different. Therefore, compensation for my time would be highly reduced (i.e. not a 'real' motivator). Any feedback (by anyone) in this regard would be appreciated.
  9. Jack: Post your URL again... I will briefly take a look.
  10. Added (under non-profit and informational sites).
  11. Absolutely! The logic is good but the application is not. The jammed together links at the bottom which our keyword rich is a flag for spamming. My recommendations hold, get rid of the links and add a site map.
  12. You have been added (Personal Sites). Can you say NCAA National Champions! SEO Thoughts: 1. First and for most: change http://www.brianluvera.com/home.html to http://www.brianluvera.com/index.html (i.e. get rid of your present home page). Brian: You are the third site in a row that is asking for rank evaluation and have not yet done some real basics (e.g. Meta Tags). Please read over the pinned threads in Web Site Promotion that will give you some good solid advice.
  13. I added you. SEO Thoughts. 1. Keyword phrase to optimize for: 'Pillsbury Dough Boy' 2. A javascript popup is not followed by spiders. Therefore, if you will, please add a TCH link (preferably text link) to your site. Thank you. Our links page is here 3. You need to read all the SEO information we have supplied both in this Forum and on the Main Site. Start with the pinnned threads here (follow all links). If (when) you have questions after reading, please post. D. Scott Demmin.... (yes insane)
  14. Bill... my two cents. Well first things first: ><AREA SHAPE=RECT ALT="" COORDS="154,605,160,611" HREF="http://www.totalchoicehosting.com" target="_blank"> to ><AREA SHAPE=RECT ALT="web hosting by total choice web hosting" COORDS="154,605,160,611" HREF="http://www.totalchoicehosting.com" target="_blank"> Also, please add a 'real' text link at least on your links page. Now on to my two cents: 1. Speaking of links... do not ask people to link to your site via a banner. Use Text Links (e.g. Model and Photographer portfolios online!) 2. Move your <title> tag just below your <head> tag. 3. Your title is too long. 4. Put Alt tags on all images. 5. Instead of this: on-site Links: information on photography, photography forum, photography chat, Model Forum, Model Chat, photographer portfolio hosting, Model Portfolio Hosting,Model Zed Comp Cards, Business Cards, Headshots, free galleries, portfolios glamour, glamour photography, picture gallery, fine art photography, glamour photographers, photos, fashion photographers, photo portfolio, photographers, portrait photographers, fashion photographer galleries, photo, photographer, portfolios, portfolio, black and white photography, photography, Model, Models, Glamour Models, Fashion Modeling, Female Model Portfolios, Male Model Portfolios, Swimsuit Models, Lingerie Models, Non Nude Models, Modeling Portfolios, Female Photography, Male Models, Female Models, Male Photography, Female Photography, Female Figure, Model Portfolio I would recommend a site map. To be honest Bill, if you came to me to SEO your site... I would rework your home page quite a bit (after I was convinced of the most appropriate keyword phrase(s). Sorry, but here you only get my two cents (but a darn good value if I do say so myself!).
  15. Eric: MWTAR has been added. SEO Thoughts: Now Eric... as a Republican you should never ask for handouts! I would understand if this was the MWTAD's asking for a Rank Evaluation prior to even reading about SEO! Start with all the pinned threads under Web Site Promotion and make sure you follow all the links. If you have specific questions afterwards, feel free to post. [and you call yourself a Republican!]
  16. You have been added. SEO Thoughts: 1. Change your title: >Dog Treats and Dog Bones from The Hungry Hound Dog Bakery 2. Add a Header Tag above 'Welcome to...' ><h1>Dog Treats, Dog Bones and Dog Goodies (All Natural)<h1> You can change the size of the font by placing a font tage internal to the header tags. 3. Place all your javascripts before your </head> tag. ></head> <script LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> <!-- Idea by: Nic Wolfe (Nic@TimelapseProductions.com) --> <!-- Web URL: http://fineline.xs.mw --> <!-- This script and many more are available free online at --> <!-- The JavaScript Source!! http://javascript.internet.com --> <!-- Begin function popUp(URL) { day = new Date(); id = day.getTime(); eval("page" + id + " = window.open(URL, '" + id + "', 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=0,width=550,hei ht=325,left = 245.5,top = 267.5');"); } // End --> </script> to ><script LANGUAGE="JavaScript"> <!-- Idea by: Nic Wolfe (Nic@TimelapseProductions.com) --> <!-- Web URL: http://fineline.xs.mw --> <!-- This script and many more are available free online at --> <!-- The JavaScript Source!! http://javascript.internet.com --> <!-- Begin function popUp(URL) { day = new Date(); id = day.getTime(); eval("page" + id + " = window.open(URL, '" + id + "', 'toolbar=0,scrollbars=0,location=0,statusbar=0,menubar=0,resizable=0,width=550,hei ht=325,left = 245.5,top = 267.5');"); } // End --> </script> </head> 4. Add alt tags to all images. 5. Way too many keywords! Reduce them down to a more reasonable number. List them in order of priority (e.g. how many people are searching for 'dog bakery'?) I would love to see a 'Web Hosting by Total Choice Web Hosting' on your 'home' page Rob: As I have stated in other threads... I love your site. It is a very good example of matching the 'feel' of the product to the 'feel' of the site. Very good work, now you just need to be tops in the search engine rankings!
  17. Clicking backlinks only shows what Google calls 'relevant' sites. Relevancy is defined by PR... more the PR3. If you go to Google's Advance search enter +www.greatfolios.+com in 'Find results with all of the words' you will see that actually there are 232 backlinks... it is just a lot are PR3 or lower. Create a robots.txt file: >User_Agent: * Disallow: /chat/ This is assuming you do not want anything in the directory chat to be indexed.
  18. Previous posts may be adding to some confusion, a little clarification is in order. People are refering to rank and meaning PageRank... the two are very different entities. Obviously rank would be one's actual rank within a particular search engine for a specific search phrase (e.g. I am ranked 3 in Google using the search phrase 'wachamajiggy'). PageRank is Google's means of giving all pages within its index a relative rank of page importance. It is based on several factors. I would suggest you start by reading this (and be sure to follow all the links). In addition, keep in mind that PageRank and Rank (more technically referred to as Search Engine Rank Position or SERP) do not necessarily go hand in hand (e.g. a page with PR4 can outrank a page with PR5). What does this mean? It means that SERP is not solely determined by PageRank (again, we are speaking specifically of Google).
  19. My very favorite: The Way to Freedom from Care and Pain So think as if your every thought were to be etched in fire upon the sky for all and everything to see. For so, in truth, it is. So speak as if the world entire were but a single ear intent on hearing what you say. And so, in truth, it is. So do as if your every deed were to recoil upon your heads. And so, in truth, it does. So wish as if you were the wish. And so, in truth, you are. So live as if your God Himself had need of you His life to live. And so, in truth, He does. From The Book of Mirdad, Mikhail Naimy
  20. "Simplify" Yesterday is a memory. Tomorrow is a dream. Today is a gift... that is why we call it the present. To achieve all that is possible we must attempt the impossible. To be as much as we can be, we must dream of being more.
