View Full Version : A Little Nuts - Keyword Trouble
11-18-2003, 04:49 PM
Hello everyone. I'm going a little nuts and before I throw my computer out the window I am turning to you all for help.
I'm trying to optimize my site. Mary Ann/info202 posted a really great tool: http://www.instantposition.com/seo_doctor.cfm and I've been using it for the past hour or so. My problem?
The title tag results show my keyword appearing. Then, it shows "Diagnosis: Your title is poor, consider revising. Your keyword does not apppear in the title tag. You have not utilized an optimum 6 to 12 words.". I will likely feel silly when I get the answer for this but why doesn't my keyword register? Is it a problem with this tool or have I formatted my Title tag improperly? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!
Oh, the URL I ran was www.supplierlocator.com with keyword 'wholesale'. Thanks!

I often get the same results running that tool. I'm not sure if it is a glitch in the software or what. Frequently I get the same errors on the rest of the results (body text, etc) so I would be interested in knowing as well.
I just assumed that it was a glitch because my tags are properly formatted (I think anyway).
Glad to see another MO resident around!

Thank you! That's something that never occured to me (to check other sites that have known popularity). That puts my mind at ease. I'm pulling my computer back in the window now. I hope the cord doesn't break...

I just used the tool (before reading the developers note) I tweaked my page!
Kewl tool. If it has a 'bug' and he fixed it- even better.
I did NOT realize my pure, basic, #1 word was NOT being resolved by search engines.
I was using the word -complaints- instead of -complain-
An epiphany to be sure.
Thanks for the information and MANY thanks to the tool developer.

Hey ketyap. Thanks for the great tool. I won't hold you responsible for my temporary insanity due to your little bugger. :)
Seriously though, you have a great site there and a tool that helped me quite a bit. I guess (judging from this thread) that quite a few of us really like it!
Also, Aaron - nice to see a fellow midwestern soul here too!

You might want to fix this:
You have 2 </body></html> in your code.
