I am having the same problem. I have done every legitimate thing I have ever read about to optimize my pages, but can't get a decent registration, and in some cases ANY registration. When my customers finally find me, they are deleriously happy to learn someone is offering real work at home job listings. But the traffic just trickles in. Pages in the top twenty postions frequently not only have nothing to do with work at home, the phrase doesn't even appear on their pages, (or in their meta tags)! What gives?
