1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: can't find my website on google on: February 13, 2006 06:06:04 PM
Google does pull up the metatags for a site, but also takes the additional step in scanning the page for keywords (for validity).... just as most search engines do these days.

First of all, your designer did a terrible job in terms of making sure your site is ready to be pulled by search engines.  You should not pay another dime to that person.   It's something that designers are expected to do by default. Defining the "Title" in the header portion of your code is one extremely helpful way of defining your site to search engines. 

A couple of additional tips:
-Add alt tags to the images on your site
-Use header tags and bold fonts to emphasize important key words (but don't overuse this)
-Try to have your important keywords somewhere within the first paragraph of the page.
-Try to  lessen the amount of keywords you use in the metatags... too many keywords will confuse the search engine in terms of narrowing down what your site is about

Try this out... this tool will scan your site and tell you how search engines analyze your site:


Just enter your URL and then submit... or if you want to analyze google in particular, select GoogleBot where it says "Spider Robots" then submit

Hiya, I want to set up a website selling crafted goods made by myself and others. I want a professional looking website so I think I may need to get someone to do it for me. I was just wondering how any of you who have websites went about setting them up, finding hosts and designers, implementing shopping carts, etc.

I make web sites as a hobby and even created one for my aunt's handmade greeting cards www.AdlihcerCreation.com 

I primarily do my hosting with gate.com.. they're reliable and I've never had a problem with them.  I heard GoDaddy.com is a great hosting company to go with and they offer much cheaper rates.

As for shopping carts, I implemented PayPal's with not much hassle.

If you need help putting your site together, let me know  Grin

$10 for 1, $16 for 2. That way you get your $8 no matter what and you give an incentive to buy more than one; however...if you ever get a wholesale order, they'll expect to pay less than $8 per; think about that, then go $14.95 for 1, and $24.95 for two, with wholesale at $7-8. Everybody knows they have to pay shipping. You buy over the internet, you pay shipping. That's life.

The whales are cute and look well-made. What you need is a target audience. Tropical fish stores (ever consider doing a fish mobile or something?) baby shops, local aquarium? Try getting some links to other related sites, like whalesdirect.com. Do a search for "fish gifts" and "whale gifts" and a bunch of stuff will come up. Write or call them.

Great ideas!

These whales are so cute!  Well done!

Thanks for the compliments!

So I guess the site is fine "as is" and doesn't need any modifications?
