I looked at your source code … you seem to be using meta keywords. Which Google completely disallows. And you have a TON of meta keywords which occurs spammy. The place to insert the keywords is the Title and Description in the source code. This is probably your main reason your site isn’t higher on the Alexa ranking.
.INTERESTING… THE SITE HAS ONLY BEEN LIVE FOR 3, WELL, 4 DAYS NOW. CURIOUS THAT ALEXA HAS PICKED UP W/O IT BEING INDEXED BY GOOGLE OR CRAWLED BY YAHOO OR BING… HMMMMM
You’ve got a WordPress blog! Yay! The best platform for simple SEO … consider converting your entire site to WordPress. The benefits are too numerous to list here … but here are the top three.
1. Very easy for the owner of the site to change content anywhere on the site. (You won’t be a slave to your webmaster and if you can use Word you can change the content on your WordPress site.)
2. WordPress has lots of hidden nooks and crannies for your SEO pleasure. Behind images, tags, in the content itself, tag clouds, categories, in SEO plug-ins that you can pop in and out. So SEO is a breeze with WordPress!
3. WordPress is an inexpensive solution with a high cost solution feel and look to it. Because it’s ‘modular’ it’s easy and quick to change the look of your site or just a portion of your site. .I’D AGREE WITH THAT & I THINK THEY WERE MOVING THAT WAY BUT THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH OUR CART & USER ACCOUNTS SOMEWHERE…
Here’s my own 2 cents on your site. Go down to 2 columns at the max. 3 columns is just too busy. (Your demographic is probably a little older, 40, 50, 60′s and they like a cleaner look to the site. If your demographic was 20′s then I would suggest the busier site.)
Also you have a phrase at the bottom, in the footer that throws up HUGE red flags for me “(We’re hoping to have the programming done on a process to cut that time down considerably.)” Why are you telling people that? It’s completely unnecessary. Just tell people what you are doing, not what you’re hoping to do. The big boys don’t tell people what they’re hoping to do. .NOTED
