1st, you don't have any information in your ALT tags. DON'T spam the tags, but you should have some information that the end user can read while it's loading or for people that turn their images off. 2nd, Don't add any text the same color as your bkg. search engines will take points off for this! You'll have to rely on your meta tags. But I will tell you this. Of all the pages I have written the pages without meta tags, but good content seem to out do the ones with little content and full meta tags..Remember this, CONTENT IS KING! and as far as the search engines go, you don't have any/much.. Take care, Paul
