kawa,

As far as your heading tags, they are already bold ie "strong". If they aren't they need to be set as such in a stylesheet.

Your H2 tag is in the wrong place. It needs to be inside the "span". <span><h2><em>Yeehaa</em></h2></span>. Like so

Site looks pretty good. Easy to read. To the point.

Take your time with diving into SEO. Yes, it is important, but get your content right first. Content is king. Always will be. I would also take SEO advice with a grain of salt. Unless you're reading it straight off of google's guidelines. SEO is an ever changing animal. The wrong advice can also get you black listed or ignored by search engines. Learning SEO is the biggest headache there is, partly because a lot of how search engines rank is proprietory and secret. It also isn't the same as it was 10 years ago.

i know how to look at the code inside weebly, but as far as moving something to where it needs to go i dont know how to do that. i can edit the code but the placement is what confuses me. i played around with adding h1 code to it but ended up more confused than ever. one thing i can do with weebly is appoint an ''editor''. if someone is interested in going and looking at the actual code where it can be edited and maybe changing some of the little things like that to at least give me a good SEO basis i'd be forever grateful.

i'm happy with how the site looks, i personally think it is simple and conveys the point, easy to read and not hard to navigate around. personally i don't like sites that have stuff scrolling everywhere and is difficult to find things. i don't need a bunch of stuff changed on it, i just want to get a good basis to start working on SEO. if tags and stuff are in the wrong places or missing, logic tells me that no matter what i do i won't get anywhere. i'm getting really frustrated with it, pouring a ton of time in it and feel like i'm just treading water.

Don't worry about it. You are most likely using a site builder in which that will be out of your control.

(Besides that would be semantically incorrect to have a block-level element inside of a inline-element, technically the best method would be to place the class onto the H2 instead of a Span inside it, but this looks to be something tied to the sitebuilder to tell it you can edit it, similar to how PageLime's editor works)

Also the advice that your H2 doesn't need STRONG, in your case is wrong, as the sitebuilder has changed the H2 to be "normal" weight..

It's fine. One person missed the obvious about your site builder's handling, the other noticed the obvious about your site builder's handling. This is why making specific code recommendations for DIY builder sites is often more confusing than it's worth as each handles things differently. Carry on...
