I've posted before asking for advice to obtain a better position.
I didn't get many useful replies other than "get more inbound links" etc.
However, after some thinking and various trials I added a site map at the
bottom of the main page.
Result: I went up 9 positions.
So there seems to be room for SEO on my site, so I wonder if you have some
I rarely use the title attribute. Should I make more use of it? Perhaps the
same with the alt attribute?
But I'm a little bit cautious with these, because I don't want to
overoptimize and get penalized and
I have no idea which density I should go for and which distribution on the
page I should aim for
and if I should use them on all sub pages as well or only the main page? And
where I should test
my distribution, density etc.
Keyword phrase is "vst plugins" but the site has many occurences of the
phrase in singular.
Google added stemming a couple of years ago and then I thought it wouldn't
matter if I used
the plural or singular phrase but apparently it does. Will the singular +
add up and if they're too many, then I'll get penalized?
Any advice? I need tips, please.
(and no flames please)
Re: SEO help please
Were you lacking a navigation menu before?
You mean <title></title>? Yes, each page needs one. If you mean the
meta title whicvh is something like meta name="title" content= yada
yada" then no, don't use it.
I always do, except with spacer tags. Some graphics can usefully be
made into links, giving more weight to the alt text.
Oh good grief, don't worry about that. Is your site content good?
Genuinely useful for visitors? You won't get penalised for optimising
Simply put them where they make sense in the context.
Go around all the music forums leaving useful and knowledgable
comments and put vst plugins in your sig. That'll get you visitors and
from them you'll get natural links. I'm thinking you'll be more comfy
with that approach than anything else.

Not really. But the navigation was distributed over the top, left and right
sections of the main page.
As you can see here: www.mhc.se.
No, the title attribute, not the title element. For example <a
href='whatever' title='this link leads to...'>bla bla</a>
I think so too, but unfortunately it's a bit time consuming and some would
prefer it as spammy.
