Hi,

I'm stuck - I'm looking for a company that can handle the optimisation of my meta tags etc. for my website www.cpcards.co.uk and get it ranked highly in Google etc. for certain key words.

Does anyone know of a company they can recommend?

Cheers

Paul,

Try www.bsg.co.uk , a nice bunch of guys with some excellent techies.... I know they have done this kind of thing before. They tailor the metadata structures (& HTML) to ensure the Google crawlers (and others) rank the page highly.

Good luck,

The Google search engine isnt very metatag orientated now, things have moved on,
Google looks at site content now and relates it to search criteria, and only does very basic metatag comparions now; this is to stop people (as we used to do) just listing everything we do and all our competitors in the metatags, with very sketchy site content.
Plus, and this sounds silly, the Google search engine will only follow your hyperlinks if theyre blue (yes seriously), so if you've got fancy hyperlinks, in say red, the google engine wont follow them, so it will only search on content on the basic pages.

The answer for us was to get the meaningful content on the home page, avoid fancy flash introductions because they actually lower the search engines success in bookmarking your site, and the rankings will follow (our 5 sites come up number 1 in every relevant client type search word we can think of now).

Note all the CRCs site hyperlinks are blue, and searches from Google often reflect hyperlinked areas of the crc, so well done to Rob as usual.

Content, content, content, and incoming PR. That is all the google algorythm uses these days.

Give me a call and I can talk you through what Google are looking for specifically.

Be cautious of companies saying they can get you listed within 7 days. They may be able to get you listed with the most obscure search engine phrase, but that won't be much help to your business.

One of the best ways to get content is to create a blog on your site. You can then reference the latest posts on your home/index page which mans you effectively have fresh content automatically. Google really likes that. :D

You could use the blog for your latest offering, deals or new initiative.

I also do the TKC site, which is ranked No 3 for the phrase "kit car" and rated highly for a whole range of other nice phrases.

Search for Cobra Replica and we are number 1 on the list. :D
