Re: Major URL Question??

adding to Major URL Question?? posted by Dr. Donald Zvanut

  The problem occurs because spaces CANNOT be used as part of
a URL. Although they are illigal charicters, there is no
problem with the search engines using the %20 between the
words instead. There are existing pages on the SE's that
have exactly the same problem.

  I would be much more concerned however about your use of
META data. In you keywords on the front page, the word
gold is repeated 10 times and the word jewelery is repeated
8 times. I beleive the current limit for repartition of any
META KEYWORD as a string or a sub-string is 3 times, going
over this limit is not going to do you any good!

  A quick check on AltaVista and Infoseek will show that you
need to find some other site to link TO YOU, remember the
number of links to your site directly effects your search
rank in a number of Engines.

  Other than this, there is no real problem, the site is
quite good, shame about using Microsoft FrontPage, but
never mind...

  The overall file size for your index page wasn't bad
(34.7 KB) downloadable in (theroy) just under 10 seconds on
a 28.8 Kbps modem. The site as a whole is easily navigable
and there is a good product range, for your chosen subject.

  Hope this helps
