Thank you Max, Jim and everyone for all the help and advice you have given me about my site. I have also followed along with the advice given to others. I have taken your suggestions----->incorporated them and now have excellent rankings in most of the major SE including Yahoo (which listed me today).
Search Terms: Haverhill or Haverhill Massachusetts
(I still cannot seem to get a good ranking in Alta Vista.)
One of the things I did to my site was to put the Refer Me script on it. What I have found is that the pe0ple who sign my guest book also use the Refer Me about 35% of the time.....(I think that is quite good.
I also di a redesign making sure I used the H1 /H1 tags and put relevent text with my keywords in the opening paragraph.
My site is a non-commercial site.....so the only benefit I get is the personal satisfaction of people liking my site.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help......keep up the fantastic work!
