1) Your Links are Embedded in
search engines will not recognize and index those pages.
If you're serious about getting a good position on Yahoo,
AltaVista, Lycos and the main engines, either put your
links in simple html or make alternative links at the
bottom of your page just for the search engines. An
example of how this is done is in the Source code of http://www.herbal-treatments.com.au/index.html.
2) Your Pages Aren't
Not all search engine indexers visit your website from
your index page. If you haven't linked each of your pages
with all your other pages, you stand the risk of having
engines indexing only one or two of your pages. Just add
text links at the bottom of your pages to all your other
3) Badly Formed Comment Tags
If you have comments within your code and they are not
formatted according to the html specifications, indexers
will not properly parse the tags on your page, ignoring
many important tags.
4) Are you using a Virtual Domain
When you use an Internet Redirection Service to make it
easy for people to remember your website address,
(http://yourname.hjgjhg.com instead of http://www.geocities.com/asjhg/ajkhj/hjh.html
Your website is displayed in a frame (even though it may
not be visible). When you do this, all your pages may not
get indexed and most of your keywords and meta tags won't
get preference. I suggest you use redirection services
only to give people your website address. Give your true
(http://www.geocities.com/jfhkha/ksjkjak) url , however
long it is, to the Search Engines and to link to your
5) Are You Using Free Website
Many free website hosts use various methods of enforcing
their advertising banners on your website. This sometimes
causes wrong and/or incomplete indexing of your website.
If you have repeatedly had trouble with getting your free
website indexed, switch to providers that you see coming
up in results at the Search Engines, eg. Geocities, AOL,
Icestorm.com etc. Another option is to use the free
account your ISP gives you, or use a student account as
these are usually very search engine friendly.
I hope this helps in your future
