Hi,
I have been trying to improve my rank in the search engines which is depressingly low, like number 2 billion or somthing like that.

Anyway, I had been using dreamweaver to create my tables for me & learned that was BAD. Now I have been slowly making my own tables but my individual items pages aren't done yet. Will this keep my rank low untill all the code is cleaned up even though my code is pretty decent (I think) on the main pages?
Also I think my links page is probably messy, what do you guys think? Do webrings help with page rank?
Thanx so much for your help!! Any advice at all is really appreciated.

your tables / code is probably going to make didly squat difference to how you rank.

You have no inbound links ....... and from the looks of your footer you are not using anchor text, thats your problem.

By "inbound links" do you mean other people linking to my site?
If so, that is not true. I trade links with everyone on my links page. I have checked to see if they are linking & they are.

Can you tell me what a footer is?
thanx again!!

Yahoo shows 25 links for you, so indeed you have a few links. However google isn't recognising them yet, maybe their next update.

by footer I meant signature (my error) - Read the anchor text article i posted in one of your other threads.

Funny it only shows 25 links as I have more than that.
I don't understand what my signature has to do with my anchor text.
Thank you for the article on the anchor text. I do have some on my site but I just added a bit more after reading that.
I hope this helps. : )

From what you wrote you obviously havn't gripped this anchor text thing yet.

look at your sig ... the link is simply a URL.

Look at my sig - it has text on the link (Ozami Web Directory)

The anchor text is the text on the link.

So if I was hoping to rank for the term "Web Directory" i'd be getting sites to LINK TO ME with that anchor text ....

Search engines use anchor text to determine what the page a link is pointing to is about. Your right to optimize the anchor text on youyr internal links (pages you own), but I think you missed the main point there.

Oh, OK. I get it now that you explain it like that.
Makes sense . Just a link is not good enough.
So when we trade links with people would it be better to have good anchor text link instead of a banner link?

Remember to be sure that the link pointing to your site must be direct. Some guys do it in Javascript and others send the crawler somewhere else before to your site.
