It looks like you might have some really good information at your site, but the way it's laid out, it's really hard to tell.
I'd suggest putting a navigation bar at the top of the page to start. Then break the whole thing down into several pages instead of trying to cram all that information onto a single webpage.
Also, you might try adding a little color to create some visual interest. All that gray makes it a little hard to read your text.
Last suggestion: You've got the site set to look best at 1024x768. Unfortunately, about half the people using the web still use 800x600dpi. You may want to reconsider your setup to accommodate those folks so they don't have to scroll horizontally.
P.S. I'd be curious to check out your site after you've broken up that one really long page and set up a navigation bar. It really does look like you've got some good info there!
You have a broken link...it says

Pardon my saying so, but it's unclear what you seek to achieve in your website. Discerning viewers usually already know what to look for and where. Point is your website should be clearly focussed on what you propose to offer.
Hope I'm not too harsh..! Wish you all the best.

Start with some text saying what it is you do. Then brake the information up into other pages.Add some colors, graphs logos etc.
Thats where I would start
We are totally flaberghasted ...
why is there SUDDENLY 200 visits per day coming to our site form this forum?
The unusual design of our site is a result of a backgrounds in Programming for search engines...
We are currenty in the Top 50 on Google and Altavista for:
Search engine optimization
search engine promotion
search engine positioning
search engine placement
search engine ranking etc:
also for most of those terms - we are on the front page of AltaVista
...so we were designing it as search engines would "read it" for those extremely competative terms...

I'm guessing that the 200 visits your site received from this forum means that we all read this forum.
I visited your site and I think that you have valuable information there. I just wish that it would be easier to understand.
1) At the beginning it says: "Search engine standards for website placement, ranking and positioning:" and afterwards there is a list.
Wouldn't it be clearer if under the title you would add a small sentence saying something like: "This is a list (in order of importance?) of what search engines look for in your website in order to determine its placement, ranking and positioning."
It would also be useful if you added links to a little description of what placement, ranking and positioning is and how are they different from one another.
2) Your next title says: "Attributes and tags-effect on major search engines" and under it there are several things listed, like the first one that says: "Url (domain name)
If the title mentions the word tags-"effect" why do you afterwards use the word "influences"?
I would also appreciate it if you could separate in a clearer manner each attribute and tag and its influences from the next one.
3) Afterwards, it says:
"(Fast provides Web search results for Lycos.
(Google provides "The "Sponsored" search results for AskJeeves, Aol.... etc."
Doesn't this last list deserve some sort of title?
4) Afterwards, "Techniques Considered Spam by Search Engines...tiny text..."
Wouldn't it be clearer if you add a sentence saying something like: "Do not use any of the following on your website or you risk being banned by the search engines."
5) Your link: "Visit Our Web Master's Homepage!" is not working. This page never appears http://5url.com/
6) Could you explain a little how can somebody use the information on: "Examples of Optimized HTML Tags-Used in Search Engines Ranking Algorithms", like which ones to use and when or in which cases.
7) Finally, an index, menu, navigation bar or sitemap really wouldn't hurt.
I wish you the best and I really look forward to visiting your site again when you make it a little more easy to understand for those of us who are not top experts.
http://search-engines-web.com/ is now in the TOP 20 in Google & Yahoo for:
Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Placement
Search Engine Ranking
Search Engine Positioning
among other related term...
Also, for some of those terms it is in the TOP 20 in AltaVista and AllTheWeb /Lycos
We have done this without spending ANY money for promotion, hence the design and the HTML that some of you were commenting on, was for this particular purpose. Just Look at our competition for those SERPs.
We were testing our theory of SERPs / Relevancy Algorithms

I agree that your visual appearance is not up to par. It actually is very hard to read with thin black font on grey background.
In addition there is not really true organization for the reader to follow. It is painful for me to read through it. Although I did because I am impressed with your high rank in Google and others.
If your goal is to maintain a high ranking in SEO I give a hat's off to you as what you stated above is true and your placement of text and other methods seem to be working for you.
Please take the time to review my site, I am currently looking for SEO tips. Thanks.

You need use some type of navigation tool. Add a few more pages. I feel people will start to scroll, but stop or give up if they think it's not what they expected. I was accualy surprised when I got to the bottom. If you move your search engine submissions up to the top, customers might stay longer and read the information. I did submit my web sight through the free submission. When I have the extra money, I definitely will use one of the pay packages. Please go to my site and encourage others, family,& friends.

I don't think that most people in this thread understand that you have done exactly what you set out to do.
I just want to congratulate you and and ask you if you would discuss a little bit of the theory that went into creating that page. Also, if you wouldn't mind, I'd love to hear a little information about your background in search engine optimization.
I think I'm your biggest fan of the moment.
BTW, I found you site by searching the phrase "google ranking" on google... you were listed at number 4!!!
Upon reading all the comments I think both side have valid concerns. If Search engine placement is what you were after then you have hit the nail on the head.
Based on visual it is a bit hard to read, but the information contained in the site is very valuable. I will definately be revisiting your site and putting your info to good use.
