View Full Version : Netmar Solutions site review
08-20-2004, 08:55 AM
Hi. I've been helping people ranking websites for a while but they never have the budget to develop big strategies so anyway, I decided to put a website online (www.netmarsolutions.com) and offer my services. Here is a short review of what I've done on it:
- Used WordTracker to find target keywords
- Developed a search engine friendly architecture using a site map and headings on the first "content" line of every page
- Used keywords in anchor text on every page
- Used robots.txt to block access to pages such as contact, forced reciprocal links (from directories), order forms, etc.
- Wrote articles and planning on writing on a regular basis
- Put lots of content online (about 100 spider friendly)
- Submitted to about 100 directories and search engines so far and still working on it
I'm looking forward to read your comments

Netmar, You've certainly done your homework.
Much is debatable, but a quick look on page... You've got a bunch of script in the head, calling for it would be more efficient even if not for bots. You've got a buch of spacer.gif's, didn't know if you couldn't clean that up that you might add alt attributes.
I think it was SEO Sensy talking about CSS and drop downs earlier (spider friendly). Regardless, they were right about the availability of tutorials on the like.
Very nice though, appealing, clean...

I would add linking to the absolute URL not the relevant /index.htm from your top left logo link and anywhere else you link to it. That is the only place on the site you use abs vs rel its just so your links from internal pages match the links from your link partners.
I am also not sure about what seems to be one of your main kw terms "internet services" it seems a little to nebulous to really be worth targeting (As it will also be hard to get) I would try to tone down into a niche or more targeted keyword subset for better conversion. Remember a site with 1/10 the traffic but 10 times the conversion is easier to maintain and makes you the same amount of $
Good luck and good work so far

Thanks guys for you review. I really appreciate and I'm surprised to see that I wasn't crushed too much. hehe
Dilligaf, I know about those space.gif images but I prefer not putting keywords on images that mean nothing. If you balance your density at the end, it won't change anything anyway. Well I think so. You also keep it cleaner for visitors that way. About the script well, you get to a point where you gotta choose between visual and seo and I chose visual for the menu, which is also why I used a site map for the spiders to find as many pages as possible but to learn about css would be great since it's definatly one of my weaknesses. :(
SEO Guy well I agree with you on putting the absolute url to my main page. While putting the website together, I was sometimes working off-line so it would be time now to update it I guess. I also agree with you on the "internet services" keyword. Although, its density is only 3.37% and I wanted to use services to match other keywords as well. People searching for the keyword "services" are often buyers. As far as "internet" goes, above anything else, it was used to make a combination with "marketing", which gives combinations such as "internet marketing services", etc. If I was lucky enough to rank with "internet services" well, I won't complain getting 200-300 visitors/day with one single keyword. They can find their way around! lol No really, I don't have any PR yet since it's a new site so I tought I would be better off aiming at combinations of keywords first.
