    Trying to optimize for Google...


    I have lost my rank ever since the Austin update, and have decided to make some changes to my site. Is my site optimized well for Google? My rankings on the other major searchengines are great, just my google se results suck.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    You have a nice site.
    It was even easy to read the HTML source.
    What keywords are your targets?

    Oh, oops, forgot to mention the keywords. Website design, orange county website design, los angeles website development and orange county logo design Are the keywords I am trying to target.

    Your site is great and doesn't need changing

    You have some great quality links too but you need more links with keywords in your anchor text, the anchor text I've found is....

    Miss HTML Design Services

    which isn't in your list of keyword/phrases above.

    Get more links, then more, then when you think you have enough, get more. Joking aside, google loves anchor text and links.

    Good luck!

    Thank you Jane!

    I just found out about the Anchor Text thing, and have been doing it like that the past few links. I will definately be doing that with all future links.

    Use those keywords on your Title, and Description Tags also.

    The site is very appealing. Perhaps adding a few more H1 tags and if you wanted to get very creative you could impliment more css so that your images with text were readable by the spider - using css technique. It would still look the same to the user, but would have more weight for the search engine.
