Your site is listed with either Yahoo! or Google. That is what
they are telling you. However, your site is not coming up under
your desired keywords. This is happening because your site is
not optimized for keywords. It is a very attractive site with a
lot of information, but not optimized.

There are several things you can do to optimize your site to
keywords. The first thing you need to do is find the words that
are most important to the user. Remember you are not the one
searching for your product. You need to figure out what the user
is searching for. Once you figure this out, then you can
optimize. The best way to find out what users are looking for is
to ask your friends and family. Ask them to tell you how they
would search for your dresses. Then you have a list. To this
list you would add your own keywords. Once you have your full
list of keywords, you need to place them on the pages of your

Right now if a spider looks at your site, they will not realize
you are selling smocked dresses. Your keyword density is very
low. You talk about how you got started with smocking, not the
product. The information you have is great for the user once
they get there, but they need to get there first.

Your product pages have very little text and are a major problem.
You need more "content" to get into the search engines properly.
Use at least 200 words per page about your product, but don't
"word stuff."

I know that what i am telling you is not very clear. If you want
specific info, please feel free to contact me. I would be happy
to help you out and teach you what will help your site.
