I just checked out this site: http://www.websitegrader.com/. It talk about the health of your site and things that you should do to improve you Search Engine Ranking. I found about 3 or 4 things. Here is what was suggested for my site:
- Meta Description too long – my description tag was 230 characters and the recommended is 150.
- Meta Keywords – the site said I had a high number of meta keywords. And, while this is only marginally important to Search Engines, they still suggest reducing the number to just the key few.
- Domain Registration – it suggested I renew my domain for several years – as a 1 year domain is often a spam domain.
So, I’m going to change all three and see what happens. Right now I am number 22 on Google for “website design fort wayne”. Will changing any of these help? We’ll see.
