Webpage not seen by search engines


I created a site several months back using FP 2003 for a local chapter of dental professionals.

If I search google or any other search engine, they do not seem to be picking up the site.  Below are the tags I'm using


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<title>Greater Sudbury Dental Hygienists' Society</title>
<meta name="keywords" content="GSDHS, Greater Sudbury Dental Hygiene Society, Dental, Hygiene, Dental Hygiene, Greater Sudbury, Boreal, College Boreal, Sudbury, ODHA, CDHA">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="GSDHSStyleSheet.css">
.GSDHSStyle  {  }
<!--mstheme--><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="_themes/rmnsque/rmns1011.css"><meta name="Microsoft Theme" content="rmnsque 1011, default">

My question is:  Have I overlooked something or added items incorrectly making them not visible to search engines?

If at first you don't succeed, then sky diving wasn't meant for you!

RE: Webpage not seen by search engines

Meta tags have very little impact on the searches any more. There are  a few factors that are important, but the very big one is: Words on the page...

Have the desired search terms actually on the page. Best is to have them plain, bold, and as <H1> or other heading level... you get the idea.

You want a page that has lots of text talking on and on about Sudbury dental hygeine and sudbury and dental and... you get the idea.

Good luck!



RE: Webpage not seen by search engines

Thanks for the response Lillabeth.  I'll be sure to make adjustments based on your suggestions.
