Re: Do sub-page names / image names

adding to Do sub-page names or image names weigh in with the deep search engines? posted by Nicholas

All other things being equal, yes. It's low
priority compared to, say, page TITLE but it
does have some weight - even on Yahoo, believe
it or not.

No. Deep engines can't tell the difference
between a home page and a sub page, they're
just URLs and one listing would have no effect
on the other.

>Would the title move the subpage higher,
>assuming the sub-page was separately listed?

Of course. A subpage TITLE is just as important
as the home page TITLE. Put different keywords
into the TITLEs of all of your pages for the
best results.

An image filename is very low priority, but
an ALT tag can have some effect.
