View Full Version : Why my site is losing his good positions on google ?
11-13-2003, 11:49 AM
www.francecruises.com is listed on the major search engines but my position checks show that it is getting lost on pages x and I don't know why !
Even with the keywords France Cruises or even FranceCruises which is the domain name !
Any advise ?

Re-do your META tags
Go to Alexa and submit some links, your rating there is horrible.

There are a lot of things that can effect your position.
One of the things that would help a lot is to start working on getting links to your site and use your key word in the link.
Also moving the text up higher on the page and adding more text would also help.

There are a few things that your site is lacking for high search engine rankings:
1. You need more inbound links with a couple of your main keywords in the link anchor text. Only 10 links are showing up with the Google Link: command.
2. You need more pages of quality content.
3. You need a couple of your best keywords repeated several times near the top of the appropriate pages (target 2 different keywords per page.

Thanks for the suggestions !
I will work on the link matter ASAP as well as adding more content and keywords.
My problem is to move the text higher on the page.
The "view source" of the site (www.francecruises.com) sjows that the text codes after a long serie of code of preloading images etc...
Is this a problem ? Can this be moved around ? (I am using Dreamweaver and it is put this way automatically)...
Eventually, I would replace of these buttons by link text. I would like however to have these links in decorative text = no underline, color other than blue and highlight with mouse over kind of like on the rlouse web site...I can't manage to get this done with dreamweaver...Please help ?

Forget about Dreamweaver at least for the first page. The page design is very simple: you can use plain HTML (by the way, it takes too much time to load)
And if you cannot make without Dreamweaver, try at least to clean the code and get rid of sentences such as /*
* Pre-load the specified image. This loads the image as the page
* loads, so that when it is used later (such as for a mouseover effect),
* the image has already been loaded.
I found more than once in the file.
