    PR increase - but site still nowhere


    Hi,

    This is my first post and I'm just trying to get to grips with what's happening.
    My site is nowhere on Google for my first choice keyword, however it has a PR of 5,
    higher than the site at the no.1 spot (they are PR 4 and we're direct competitors).
    Yahoo has always been OK for us. Any ideas as to why this is happening
    and how I can improve it?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    The site is www.fromheretomaternity.co.uk. I have considered employing
    to do some SEO work on this site, but it seemed from what I was told, to be
    very complicated business and I didn't understand what they were proposing to do,
    so I backed off. Any opinions are gratefully received

    Thanks

    Sitemap is missing on your homepage , and now days what I am observing in google spers i.e age of domain also the reason, one more thing PR5 is not a factor for good rankings. There are many other factors too one I mention at the beginning
