View Full Version : HTML keyword analysis

12-08-2002, 02:12 PM
Hi all...

I am in the process of attempting to learn html. I submitted the website I am building to a outfit called Submitnet. (They list your site with 2000+ search engines for a fee.) Part of their analysis is to review meta tags as well as body keywords in hopes of best placement with search engines. The meta tags were easy...
Here is the code:

<title>InfoLynx Systems - Software Development & Service Provider.</title>

<meta name="keywords" content="InfoLynx Systems; Consulting Services; Software Development & Implementation; Service & Support; Hardware; E-learning; Sales Support; CRM; SFA; Web, Sales & Marketing; Dendrite; ADP Dealer Services; Database Admin; Data warehouse; DBA; Developers; E-Commerce; Information Systems; Information Technology; Infrastructure; Management; New Jersey; New York; Pennsylvania; Pharmaceutical; Project Leader; Project Manager; Sales Force Automation; Software Engineer; System Architect; Technology; visual basic; vb; c; c++; sql; "/>

<meta name="description" content="InfoLynxSystems.com Information Technology - Software Development & Service Provider. InfoLynx Systems specializes in providing professional technical solutions & services. "/>

<meta name="revisit-after" content="7 days"/>
<!-- infoLynx systems,consulting services,software implementation,service & support,hardware,E-learning,sales support,CRM,SFA,web,sales & marketing,Dendrite;ADP Dealer Services,database admin,data warehouse,DBA,developers,E-Commerce,information systems,information technology,infrastructure,management,New Jersey,New York,Pennsylvania,pharmaceutical,project leader,project manager,sales force automation,software engineer,system architect,technology,visual basic,vb,c,c++,sql bf-->

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=en/default.html">

When I run a keword analysis based on the code listed above, I receive the following error:

"We are sorry, but we could not successfully complete the body ratio test. Please check that your HTML is properly formatted. "

I cannot understand what is going on here. I have listed the revelant keywords in the body of the page. I have tried placement various way and still have the same error. I have consulted a few reources before posting this question in hopes of solving myself..to date no luck. Any ideas? Appreciate the help!

This line:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=en/default.html">

should be in the <head>, not in the <body>.

Hope that helps,

Those "services" that promise to get you into the #1 slot in search engines are all the latest scam on the internet...and with newbies logging on every day, it's no wonder.

Paying for any site submission service is highly questionable. Most SE's red-flag them anyway. There probably aren't 2000 search engines in the whole world.

Keep your keywords to 3-4 words and submit yourself by hand. SE's don't read comments...sorry. :D

Don't believe a word I've said? Look here (http://www.webmasterworld.com/home.htm). :cool:

Thanks for the feedback. I moved the tag to the head and still had problems. I spent a lot of time reviewing the keywords.. I found a problem with the keyword C++. I removed the ++ and everything worked perfectly.

Can anyone advise why the two +'s will ot work? Any suggestion as to how to include + in the tags ?

There's nothing wrong with using "C++" in the META tag, the error is probably with their parsing program.

But like zoobie said, anyone who promises to get you listed high on search engines is either ignorant, lying or running a scam - usually all three.

The only way to guarantee a good placement on a search engine is to buy a position from that search engine. Ask this company which SE's they will list you on and whether or not they have a partnership or agreement with them. Ask what guarantee they will give. Ask what minimum placement and for how long. And ask if these hundreds of "search engines" they will list you on are actually cheap, low traffic sites they themselves own.

Yeah its gotta be with their parsing program. Do they use javascript on the client side to "check" your code? If so, thats why ++ would cause problems.

Just wanted to thank everyone for their timely and helpful responses. Several months ago I stumbled upon this site and was impressed by its content as well as the seemingly knowlegable posts to be found. It is great that such a resource is available to a newbie.

Thanks again!

I'm going to add an even stronger caution to this thread. Not only are these companies not going to get you good ratings, they will generally get you worse ratings.

ie, if you use a company like this, your SE positions are likely to fall as a result
