Well, to be honest, I stopped reading after I encountered typo mistakes, saw that your page's title was "Explosive Web Design - The Best blog for free online resources.  » Blog Archive   » Improve Search Engine Optimization" and trealized that you're linking to files that are located on your computer.

You prove a valid point.. I only just set up my blog, so I'm still checking over things (obviously grammar needs some work )

I don't think any of the files are located on my computer though.

I disagree about submitting your site to google.. you can get indexed much quicker with social bookmarking (digg, stumble), ezine articles, and blog posting.

Yes, that's why I had both.

That's what happens when you don't hand code

To be honest I'm not trying to have a go but the copy on the site is poor.  I'm only saying this because I've been reading Wizelys' posts on copy and have found them an eye opener.  Please don't feel like I'm overly criticising.

"In simple terms Search Engine Optimization is optimizing web pages to increase the ranking in search engines."
(Repeating too often, fluff)

"Having a high ranking hugely increases traffic to web pages."  
(Kind of an oxymoron)

"This is because, in most cases viewers will be looking for the best content through search engines and will not already know the link of your web page."  
(Doesn't make sense)

Then there are a few more paragraphs that could be substantially improved and shortened.  

"Probably most importantly is having content that is different to the average web page. This will boost the rankings of the site phenomenally as search engines are constantly looking for the freshest, newest information. It’s often said that content is king."
(I wouldn't say your ranking improves simply because of different content.  Wrong content can be just as harmful)

Linking: Not just from other sites but other sites with similar content and a high page ranking.

"Buy a domain name if there are sufficient funds."
(How are they showing content without a domain/hosting.  Plus older domains are better and won't be sand-boxed.)

Not once do you mention writing for the target audience not the search engines and you hardly touch on spamming.


I could go on but I won't.  Sorry if what I said sounds too harsh, I'm just trying to help.
