Hi Melanie,

Thanks for taking the time to study my page.
The problem is not with the META tags.
Most of the Urls returning to the query "synthpop" with INFOSEEK
do not have META tags (they are not even commercial)
To remind you - my page isn't showing within the first 200 pages!
And it is indexed (i've checked using the "url:" statement)
It is some kind of a SECRET.
Something that I don't do right.
