>I read the comment further down the board about pages generated from FrontPage getting lower rankings - I'm not sure what the marker in the html is that signals the indexes but most page generators, including FrontPage (I think), impose something at the top of the coding that says something like "" <meta name="GENERATOR" content="FrontPage"><meta name="FORMATTER" content="FrontPage">"" In Netscape Composer, I just remove those references. Now I just used Arachnophilia, which has those tags too. Arachnophilia is a freebie and does little more than aids your writing basic html.

That's a good idea. I removed the Frontpage generator tags. It didn't change the content or anything. I'll check the ranking after these indexes update to see if I moved up in the search engines. Like I said in the comment down below, my rankings really aren't bad. They're pretty good for a 4 month old site. I'll just have to ride it out for now. Any other input would be helpful. Thanks for replying.
