I've heard many great things about this website and forum and thought that I would come and see for myself. For the most part, I've learned all of my seo from the good people at webworkshop.net.
I've got a couple of questions about SEO to start out with. I've launched a new scrapbooking website/business. Scrapbooking is our industry. Not something I'm very keen on myself but my parents are. (By the way, I'm 16). I now have had the priveledge of running the business myself while they handle our primary business. The website I run is "http://www.fairytalecreations.com" and our main website is "http://www.crafterstoybox.com". I do all of the website work for both though including SEO.
Currently we're ranked in yahoo and msn for scrapbooking supplies and are working on the keyword scrapbooking. Although google has been a problem (we're out of the sandbox and I'm still having problems).
Whew, anyways! That's just some background info.
Onto the questions...
I've optimized my website for "scrapbooking". I'm wondering how long I'll have to wait for rankings (any, at all to know where I stand) to take place.
How long does it take for new websites to get rankings in yahoo and msn?
Also, I have added a couple links to my sig. I'm not just dropping in to post links, but if there is a problem with this, or if you need "this many posts" to do so, then let me know and I will remove them.
One last thing, I'm not sure how to upload my avatar. I didn't see a place to upload.
I can't wait to meet everyone. Please say hi, if anything at all of a response.
