(was a 5). I took advice from SEO Dave to bring the dictionary 'in-house'
instead of linking out to someone else's and to use images, with ALTs,
properly. That took a lot of work on my part. I changed the navigational
menu to be 95% CSS, which helped with link referrals. I also changed my
page names to be more descriptive. And I added content, and left links to
add a lot more content. These are things that I learned by gleaning the
This took two months of my time and lots of coding changes. Although much
of the site looks the same to the users, it has changed dramatically
internally. All of this to move up one notch, with the hope of moving up
two in the near future, after adding additional content. And, like others,
I watched my rank deteriorate before it improved. That was panic time for
me, but I kept the faith because posts on this NG said that was normal.
All of this would not mean much to many SEO's, but to me it made a great
deal of difference. I am not an SEO. I am a cancer survivor and I help
other rare cancer and pediatric cancer patients find support and
information. The fact that many more rare and pediatric cancer patients are
finding the site has helped me to help them.
I wanted to say thank you to all of you. You helped me to learn how to
improve my website development techniques. I will keep reading this NG and
hopefully learning ........
