Okay Boys and Girls......I've had it playing nice, working hard and sharpening my nose out against the SEO grindstone. The bottom line is I have been wasting hours of time refining my sites current SEO standards:to exacting the right amount text to code ratio, i have been elminating tables, cutting code, weighing my keyword density on a postal scale, Drastically cutting back my graphics to decrease load time. and virtually hundreds of other psychotically stimulating adventures call SEO...then I snapped, I burst like a tomato giving his life up for an overweight italian woman's ragu.
I took one of my sites and broke (most) of the rules.
the site is :Above Ground Pools 4 Less
Then I did again with a sister site and it popped up to 11 on yahoofrom nothing to Number 11 of Yahoo.
Pools4Less though I left the achor text on this one (old habits die hard)
both of these sites only have the basic meta tags and minimal optimization....Have I been exuding sweat and blood on the altar of SEO for naught?
I know # 11 is not number 1 but these secondary sites have been struggling for reconition even though duplicate content was kept to a minimum.
My Idols have fallen and my altars have crumbled, what is a know disavowed SEO junkie to do?
