View Full Version : I tried to optimize my site - can someone review it
05-20-2004, 05:35 AM
I have site which has been online less than 6 months the URL is http://www.active-pet-beds.com
I optimized the index page for dog beds and cat beds. The interior main pages I tried to optimize for the singular form of the keyword phrases ie active-pet-beds.com/dogbeds is optimized for "dog bed" and active-pet-beds.com/catbeds is optimized for "cat bed". I had looked on wordtracker and the singular/plural keywords were both important which is why I set it up like this. Would someone be able to review my site and give me any pointers?

The site looks very neat and organized, i like how you have kept it very simple and right to the point. The first thingt hat I spot on your site is the way you are linking to your pages, for instance when you click on the Resources link on the top of the page it takes you to this page http://www.active-pet-beds.com/resources but when you click on the one on the left hand side it takes you to this page http://www.active-pet-beds.com/resources.htm.
Now while being in those pages, all the links in your left hand menu are now pointing to your pages like this: http://www.active-pet-beds.com/dogbeds/index.htm
Google seels http://www.active-pet-beds.com/dogbeds/ and http://www.active-pet-beds.com/dogbeds/index.htm as two different pages so you are sort of splitting your points for that keyword onto two pages.
Hope that helps.

Thank you very much. I'm going to pick one and just use one for all pages so it's not split like you described. Does it matter which I pick, I mean is one way better than the other?

I'm going to implement the suggestions given to me on the forum reply. Can someone tell me, is active-pet-beds.com/resources the exact same as active-pet-beds.com/resources/ I was unsure if the last slash mattered or helped ect. Also, do you think as far as linking goes it's important to link with extremely relavent sites. For example, will linking with a dog tag site be of benefit to me or should I stick to getting me links within the pet beds sections of directorys and other pet bed sites?

Of course this will help. If they don't sell dog beds then it's excellent.
Chances are he will be happy to give you a link too. Any dog, cat related link is good for you. Go for it.

Hi. I like your pet bed web site. It made me consider purchasing a new bed for my dog. But, I doubt he'd give up the one he has now. :)
There is a spelling error on the title for the following page:
<title>Additional Informatin for Active Pet Beds</title>
Usually, I wouldn't mention a typo but I thought since it is in your "title" that it might hurt your SERPS.
Good luck with your new site.
