adding to Excite - One website grabs the top 10 listings - that agitates me!!! posted by Bradley

>I look at their source code (if you do a search on the word: fundraising in Excite, you will see the pages) but I just can't figure out what is so good about their design that gets them ranked so high!!??

>The only thing going for them would have to be a lot of content..Does the domain name of really help that much?

The domain name probably helps but it's more then just that... the content was put together perfectly in my humble opinion...

They've made FULL USE of their meta tags.... could learn a LOT from the way this site is put together... yet Excite, as has been mentioned before, doesn't use the meta tags..they use the content...
The site title mentions the word Fundraising two times without looking like a 'spamed' repeat....Then it's used again at least five more times before you even begin reading what's on the site itself... and yet STILL is in no way a 'spamming' attempt!.... it's done beutifully !

Not to mention the extreme amount of content on the site... with each and every page I seen utilizing the same tactics....

Though I understand your complaint... I think this site is a site that many who are trying to learn how to 'do it right' can learn a lot from... this is one example that I will book mark and study....
