    Impatient ? ...or too much expectation?


    I've posted a couple of times on this site and appreciate very much the help I've gotten for my "newbie" questions. That being said; I keep wondering as I work on the SEO topic with keywords, descriptions, and the hoops Google wants you to jump through..... when will I see results? Each time I change a keyword description strategy, grammar, and punctuation .....I can't help but wonder if I may be doing something Google might penalize me for. How do you know if your efforts aren't placing you back to square one (for too much keyword density, etc.) in the rankings game? I've read it can take 3 - 6 months to rank up if the URL listing is new; but I've had the same URL for over 10 years. I do plan on seeking pro help in the future; but for now, I'm wondering if I should just stop, and wait for results? Thanks guys!

    I wish that I had a quick trick to give you, but 3 - 6 months is consistent with what I've seen elsewhere on the forums.

    What is some of the most recent SEO work that you've done?

    Well; I got some tips here in pointing out lots of inarticulate descriptions. (I never was much of a wordsmith) And discovering the Title tag rewriter in Ultimate SEO was helpful . (I previously was using the Yoast SEO tool) But I'm not even sure if I am optimizing my site correctly or not. The hardest part is coming up with the keywords and fitting them without being too generalized.

    What terms are you trying to rank for? (just a couple please)

    Paradise Art
    Surf Art
    Country Art

    I've tried to keep the "pond" small enough that I'm not emmersed in the ocean. But large enough to find the right term to be specific without making it unreachable.
    "What sets my gallery apart from others?" is what I keep asking myself.

    for starters your page title doesn't cover one of those terms.
    looks to me like you're going after:
    Canvas Art
    Quality Wall Art Prints
    personally I think you have too much fluff in your titles.
    fluff=worthless terms
    put that fluff in your descriptions.

    and what is this at the top of your pages?

    Oh Man! I forgot that yesterday I was looking at Google keyword tool and tried using the more popular keywords with the most searches. Sorry about that. Absent minded slightly

    And that code I somehow inserted from SEO validation code in Google Analytics and trying to replace my logo at the top. (i should explain I had my site built by someone and could not seem to find where in the html or css he placed it. It didn't work, and the next time I launched through the front door .....there it was!
