    Unhappy Too few backlinks?


    I'm getting a bit frusterated. My site propervintageclothingdotcom has been online for around 6 months now, but is still not found in the Google top 100.
    All I can think of is that I don't have enough backlinks, but could this be the sole reason?
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    My recommendations:
    Change your home page links to aim at domain/ instead of domain/index.html.
    Add an htaccess solution to remove canonicalisation weaknesses, as follows:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^propervintageclothing.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.propervintageclothing.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    Remove the spam from your title/kw's/desc tags (don't use a KW more than 3x in any tag).
    You use the exact same title tag on 5 pages (and very nearly duplicated on the 6th - shoes - page); you also use the identical desc' on many pages... You should strive to get individual tags for every page.

    Other than that - yes you can always use more incoming links and you might want to add more on-topic text to your home page to attract more abscure search terms; overall I would say it's a little spammy (tags) but not much text content.

    Try to build more links by submitting your site to directory, do some social bookmarkings, joining forums with your sigs.
