    Wow, I have seen a lot of people explain how to do meta tags and I have tried to help people myself with this many times but I have to say Ebony did the best job of answering I have seen.

    I will ad a couple of things. If you use option 1. When your pop up window first appears you have a good place to easily edit the page title.

    Most search engines don't pay much attention to keywords any more but you still need to do them. You keywords are a list of the words you think people might use to search for you site, sepaerated by a comma. for example: landscaping, lawn care, lawn service, etc

    The three meta tags you want to worry about are title, description and keywords. The title and description are very important. Try to use some important search words in the title and description if you can. For example a title of "quality work by an experience professional" will not work well. "Landscaping and lawn care in Green Bay Wisconson has a good chance of coming up when someone does a search for "lawn care Green Bay"

    Try to use some of your keywords early in your page text. That can help a lot. Don't overdo it though or the search engines will consider it spam and bar you.

    Once you have your keywords in you can go to www.scrubtheweb.com and have them analized for free. Once you have them in you can go to www.selfpromotion.com and get listed with a lot of seach engines quickly and easily (free also)

    Good Luck

    I just had my web guy post a new list of meta tag keywords. I'm aware its not a major factor, but it is a factor. So if its there, I'd like it to relevant.

    Also, if its not major now, maybe it will be later. Since search engines experiment and change, I'd rather have all components right in case they alter their criteria.

    Turboguy,

    Thanks for the great advice on purchasing a pre-made template from pixelmill.net.

    Never used Frontpage before but thought I would give it a try. I purchased a pre-made template from pixelmill and then jumped right in. Took about 2 days to complete. Added a few flash effects and wala....it's done.

    Check it out.. not to bad for a first timer.

    Please provide any feedback that you may have. All suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

    Absolutely awsome. I have seen professionally done sites that did not look that good. I found nothing at all wrong up to this point. I will try to check back once you get your photo page up and spend some time checking your meta tags etc just to see if there are some tiny things I can help you with. You did great. Anyone thinking about doing their own site with frontpage or going other ways should take a peek at your site

    newleaflandscape,

    It's a 3D animation saved out as a gif file.
    Easy to use software and simple to create.
