    Changed main title line with disaster

    I changed my title twice and I went from number 10 down to 50 in yahoo for the term rc glider. Then also dropped even more down to number 96 for rc gliders.

    This is how not to make a website. Im clueless when comes to design or even a way to upload to it. It was made with blogger templates.

    Who knows. Search engines do strange things.

    But look at it this way...everybody, including their cousin changes their keywords and title around now and then. If this has them dropping in rank, you'd hear A LOT about it.

    If you didn't do anything else, I woudn't worry about it. That's just the way search engines are at times. And don't get me started on them!

    Lost,
    Have you tried putting the title back to what it was?
    Can you list the original title, and the 2 revisions?
    We could offer more info if you do this...
    So, here's the signature... Sans bold...

    Also post what search phrases you are looking to get index under. There are a lot of factors. It is not actually a science and it is not an art either.

    It's tricky. I had two keywords on the first page of google, msn, and yahoo. Went after more search phrases and now I'm all over the board.

    It's a learning process and it takes a lot of time.

    I have analyzed that Yahoo wants more keyword and phrases in Title, Description and keywords meta tags.

    Try out with some more keywords in your title and then see.

    Here's your source code...

    Code:
    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <TITLE>
    RC Gliders Glider World Hobbies DS Thermal Gliders Tips      &nbsp;&nbsp&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp
    </TITLE>
    
    <SCRIPT language="javascript">
    <!--
    	window.defaultStatus = "Helping YOU hit the Lift Glider World Hobbies, Inc. - All rights reserved.";
    //-->
    </SCRIPT>
    
    
    
    </head>
    
    <FRAMESET rows="100%" cols="118,*" frameborder="0" framespacing="0">
    
    <FRAME NAME="menu" SRC="menu.shtml" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" noresize>
    
    
    <FRAME NAME="MAIN" SRC="mainglider.html" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" noresize>
    
    
    </FRAMESET>
    <noframes>YOU DONT HAVE A BROWSER WITH FRAME CAPABILITY, U NEED ONE TO VIEW THIS PAGE!</noframes>
    </body>
    </HTML>
    There's nothing, other than your title, to rank the page for.

    Dave is right. Much to learn. Considering starting with these links:

    Sticky: All you need for Search Engine Optimization (SEO)


    Sticky: SEO, Where Do I Begin?


    SEOmoz: Beginner's Guide to SEO


    The Quick Kick-Start Guide to Search Engine Optimization

    Changing the title is not the reason for the drop only.

    I would take out the second Glider kw cause well, it is spammy, search engines know that the plural for glider is gliders...

    There are many factors but I wonder if this ,... &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp in the title could be part of the problem?
