the major search engines? I am getting a couple hits from yahoo and a couple others, but most of the hits are from ppl linking to it from the forums.
Is there anything free out there that will do it?

Hi there unfortunately, the only thing to do is submit it to search engines if you want to get it on there for free. Also, META tags are very important as well as your keywords. And last but not least, content in your pages that actually match your keywords. I have a tool that will analyze your site and whatnot, I will look for it when I get home for you :)

LOL! I think your best bet is to get some internet ace *cough*MAVERICK*cough* and pay him to optimize your site so he can get some wheels & tires.... :D
Once I change servers and redo my site I might just do that. :)

Thx

To do it the free way, it takes alot of management of search engine ranked material.

All search engines are different and have different algorithms on how they find and crawl pages. Yahoo, is basically a directory search, meaning for the most part a human has 'ok'ed the material which means you have to have the material your keywording else they will reject it. At least this used to be the case.



Google has web crawlers that follow links and achieve sites and locations.

The main and first thing to do, is sit down and think about your most important keywords your going to use.

The majority of search engines rank as follows,
Title Tags
Header Tags
Body copy
Meta Tags

As you can see most rank meta tags on the bottom, this is to prevent people from having fake sites with certain content but rank them high with other keywords. So obviously you want to 'try' to put your keywords in as many of those areas as you can. Especially body copy, ive found google loves to rank body copy.

This all said, if you trying to rank a popular keywords, lets say 'trucks'. Good luck, most major sites as well as design firms have search engine optimization specialists on hand 8 hours a day doing nothing but ranking a site and adjusting to others who push there way up.

Hope any of this helps, it goes much deeper then this. There are some good books out there, get one, it will help greatly if your looking to top the lists

Thanks a ton! When this simester is done I will be rebuilding my site... it needs some help. I'll look into that stuff then.
I am not trying to get my site to the top, but I would also like to see more than just a couple hits from TTORA types.
I'll get into contact with you later if things change and I am looking to pay for it.
GREAT job on the TTORA site and forum. I hope to eventually get nowwgasa.net atleast somewhere as nice!
