TheRelationshipCompany.com, need help with optimization


Guys,

I am fairly new to SEO and have been helping a friend with his website's optimzization. His website is a dating and matchmaking service with members in 7 cities currently. Website URL is www. the relationship company .com

I have tried optimizing the website using four main keywords Singles, Dating, Matchmaker, Personals.

And then tried localizing various pages using City or State names.

Can someone shed some light on what I have done right, and more importantly, what I have done wrong

How to redirect a major ecommerce site? Help needed!

to all! The mother company of a large ecommerce site wants to stop the operations on that site and redirect all traffic to another ecommerce site they own. What is the best way to redirect a major ecommerce site (SITE A) (Google PR 5, 1000 visitors a day, 40,000$ sales monthly) to a different ecommerce site with a different URL (SITE B). Here are my propositions, which is the best Would you have a better solution 1. We can simply 301 redirect the entire site (SITE A) to transfer the Google PR onto the new URL (SITE B). internal links of SITE A pointing to one URL on SITE B. On the landing page (SITE B), there will be a message explaining why the user has been redirected to this new site. This is necessary so the user feels compelled to continue shopping with the new site. 2. We could 301 redirect all internal links of SITE A onto it's own domain homepage. On this domain homepage, we would have our text explaining the redirection AND ALSO, we would have SITE B categories linking to each category on SITE B. These text links would send excellent PR to each corresponding categories with very targetted keywords. Thank you for your help, Alex

I need some advice please

, I run an affiliate website and managed to rank on first page in bing and google for a very competitive keyword. I have one major problem. The whole website is a javascript that get updated from my affiliate provider. Search engines cant read any content on the website and all the different categories show the same title tag and metta tags. I want to switch the template and ad a script that allows me to write different title tags and metta description for every category. Also this way search engine spyders will be able to read all the content. My question is : How will search engines react to such a sudden change on my website. The website will go from 1 page with no content to 40 pages with a lot of content in an instant. Thank you all in advance. I am very happy to find this forum. Lots of useful information here.

Why big guys dont need SEO

One thing that bothers me is why all the biggest online brands in the world (like ebay, yahoo, amazon, discovery, microsoft, myspace, facebook, orkut etc) have never used/using SEO and r still getting millions and millions of visitors every day. Even google itself has never used SEO to promote itself or any of its product. Now let me rephrase what i asked. Why there is not a single brand in the world which has enormous online presence on the basis of its strong SEO campaigns in the past or present. Doesn't it make SEO so weak and small esp in comparison to Social Media Marketing and traditional offline campaigns. Do you think a company like 'nokia' will ever need 2 run SEO campaigns to promote its cell phones Doesnt it make sense to concentrate more on 'Social media marketing' and other forms of promotion rather than SEO.

Latent Symantic Indexing; What you need to know

Google has developed a new algorythym to interpret site and article content to determine if it has been naturally written or has been loaded with keywords. If you have like most of us been writting content loaded with keywords for optimization your ranking could start to go down with time. To keep your ranking and even improve it you should start writting content for your site that is naturally written and not loaded with keywords. Because most SEO Companies and website owners do not know about this yet, you are able to gain an advantage in your SEO Campaign and get out ahead of the curve. Just thought you all would like to know... Please leave feedback for this post.

Pay per clicking - no need to SEO?

Something I thought of: Pay per clicking means no reason to do SEO Me: I would do both For a client though: why should they buy the services of an SEO expert SEO expert = money Pay per click = money also - but you only pay in small amounts and you pay as you go So, why would a client need to get an SEO expert OK, the only thing I can see is: stop Pay per click and *instantly* your traffic also stops Whereas with SEO, this won't happen BUT: if SEO rules change on the other hand - you need to have your SEO expert to change your website to get you to the top again - again, you need to spend more money! AND, with SEO, in the beginning, you don't see your results until 2/3 months SEO: ain't cheap! How does it compare against the costs of Pay per click - I can't really comment So, can someone tell me what compelling reasons there are that a client SHOULD still get SEO done

Solid advice re: a redirect needed - can anyone help?

Hi , Sorry for the length of this post, but I've struggled to understand this for some time and really need to get my 'spare domain' problem sorted. I use a 1and1 MS hosting package - our site is written in ASP. Multiple domains can be managed within the one hosting package - 1and1's control panel allows me to select which folder on the webspace each domain needs to point to. I have around 20 (of our) keyword-rich domains that I secured a while back to keep out of the hands of our competitors, but as our own branded domain is doing well, I don't plan to use any of these. I therefore think my options are to either: A) Point each spare domain to a corresponding folder on our webspace which simply contains a holding page (i.e. Domain owned by XYZ Ltd). or B) 301 redirect these spare domains to our main site. Unfortunately 1and1's control panel only provides an option to '302 redirect' one domain to another, but I can 'point' each domain that I want to permanently redirect to a folder on the webspace containing a 301 redirect ASP script. I'm not sure what option is best ... presumably if I use option A, these holding pages may be indexed, causing Google to throw-up a host of confusing search results if anyone Googles our Company name I guess I could use a 'Robots no-follow' within each page If I use option B, presumably the 301 redirect file could be indexed giving a similar problem I'm starting to confuse myself now! Can anyone give me a definite answer as to what I should do to tidy up my webspace whilst at the same time remaining 'Google-friendly'

Page 2 - Why big guys dont need SEO

Guys I think we don't agree on SEO concept. Facebook came after myspace and now it overcome. I'm sure there were online shops selling books before or in the same time when amazon started. Still they reached the top. himanshu160 is asking how come they did it without seo. It depends on how you define seo. This is what I think they did: - they promoted themself as authority sites and they were targeting on a specific niche(Not all of them were the pioneers of their niche. Even if they were not pioneers probably they had competition, but we don't remember the losers). I think people are calling it branding. As long as it is done through the net some people might call it seo. - they are linkable and this makes them authority sites. By linkable I mean they offer widgets, apis(amazon) or valuable information that can not be found somewhere else(microsoft). - they provide a better user experience than their competitors are doing. This is how facebook won the battle against myspace. - most of them are viral to bring new users. Sites like ebay offered some amount of money for each new subscriber. Amazon is giving you some incentives to link them. - They keep growing. They became huge and they continue to grow. An google loves it. - Maybe I should I mention internal linking, but since those days everybody does it does not give you some advantages against competition. If the things I mentioned there are not representing the quintessence of SEO, then please let me know what seo is. Something that everybody does Submitting to social media Bloggin' about your company Writing content on other sites to get a backlink
