Sounds familiar... I too started a web design website, have a PR of 4, SE Optimized, etc... but i'm nowhere to be found as well.

This could be because of a number of reasons. First off, your keyword is a very popular and competitive category so it will be hard to place well.

Also, your site - as well as mine - is relatively new. NO more than 2-3 months old. Rumor has it that google sandboxes sites for the first couple months. Whether this is true or not I am still uncertain.

FInally, how many backlinks do you have? You can have a high PR but with very little backlinks in comparison to the rest of the competitors in your category... you will not rank well.


Funny thing for my website... is when I search for "professional web design" using ALLINTITLE:, ALLINTEXT:, and ALLINANCHOR: my website is listed in the top 50 out of about 6 million.

So i know my site is optimized well. It's either because i'm stuck in the sandbox, my PR is too low, and i have too few backlinks as of now (or a combination of them all)....

SE Ranking is a game. Play it and hang in there. You'll eventually make it to the top if you stick with it - but be patient :)

180 backlinks is pretty good.


Wow, I see your problem now....

I was just looking over your site and it isn't too optimized. You should put in ALT text for all your images. The header image should have one saying "Professional Graphic Design"... your link buttons accross the top should have "Graphic Design <link title>".

Your title tag is wrong for the keyword you want. If you primary keyword you aim for is "professional graphic design" - then that should be the first thing in your title. You could make it "Professional Graphic Design at Nucleo's Domain" or something like that. Put your keywords first in your site title before less important terms. Remember search engines value the order which text appears in your title tag and your body tag.

Also, what in the world are you doing with your META keywords tag ?? Your first keyword should be "professional graphic design". Do not put Nucleo's Domain anywhere in your keyword META tag. Who is going to search for "Nucleo's Domain"? NOBODY. Make sure you list your keywords in importance from greatest to least.

Also, you have uneeded spacer images in your coding. I'm assuming you used fireworks for your mouscovers. Get rid of the spacer.gif's

Also, you want to put in a H1 tag that says "professional graphic design" near the top of your page. You can alter the size of it using CSS.

Also, throw in some more keywords in your text.

Hope this helps.

I agree with bbott1982.

Most important I think You need to have your keyprahse in your text. Google determines the relevancy of your page by "reading and remembering" your text (1 of many factors).

Imagine yourself looking for a book in the local library about "widgets":

You found a nice looking book with a great front cover, but would it be of any interest if the word "widgets" did not occur inside the book? Can an author tell about "widgets" without mentioning the word?

Look at your keyprahse as one word and therefore make it appear in context.

The question here is what is the anchor text of these links. In order for the links to really help you greatly, the anchor text must be your targetted keyword.

People seem to get hung up on PR and link popularity in general. PR does not amount to much by itself, it is useful combined with the proper anchor text, but thats about it anymore, except on really non-competitive keywords.
