I'm trying to do some SEO for my website.

What search terms would/have you use(d) when looking for information on how to tune a piano?

Does anybody know a web designer who is really good at SEO?

Piano tuning!

Then, beats, frequency, and inharmonicity.
I searched on Youtube.

Outside of getting unisons that may have slipped a bit back in order, I don't tune though.

best wishes-

SEO is not so much about keywords anymore. Links from other websites and to other related websites is as important. You should get decent page ranking due to all your postings here on PW that link to your website. Google's algorithms are now such that simply cramming the metadata of your website with keywords doesn't help "game" your way to be better pagerank. You also should consider other social media (such as twitter and facebook) to help link back to your content. People favouriting and re-tweeting your tweets will help a lot!

I think the postings here don't matter because the forums sections had "do not follow" for web spiders.

Mark Cerisano (?)

Keith, I find (few) posts on Google so I am unsure it works as you say .

May be those where related to my recent passages on those pages and would not show up from another Google account ?

As I understand it, visitor behaviour is one of the key metrics google uses to determine if searchers are finding a site useful or not.

If visitors usually click through and stay on the site, google marks your site up - if visitors come straight back to the search results google assumes they didn't find what they were looking for, and marks your site down(for the particular search term that was used, that is).

If visitors behave positively on the whole over a long period of time, your site will eventually rise in the rankings. So the secret is to give visitors what they are looking for!

Thanks Paul,

That's what I thought. But I do all that and still am not coming up on the organic search results for "how to tune a piano". Well, #11 on page 1. I guess I just need to wait? BTW, #11 was a google+ post. Interesting.

I just googled for "graph sin(4.4*pi*x)+sin(4.41*pi*x)" which is what I posted the other day - it comes up as the top link (after the actual graph) - so I'm not sure if the do not follow is being respected or not.

At the moment, though, you have no keywords at all on your site - it's just a vanilla wordpress template. I suspect that lowers the ranking right there. Another problem is that "how to tune a piano" covers many professional sites that have those words included, but not necessarily in that order. If you add "yourself" and "video" to the search terms your site comes up on page #2 for me. The other problem is that there are other domain names similar to yours that rank higher (maybe they've been around longer too).

Maybe you should make the landing page (i.e. main page) of your site custom, rather than wordpress - you can still use workpress for a blog section, but it might help not to have it as the main site. Just a thought - I have no idea if this will help or not.

Paul.

I agree. Links to other sites are very important. Try putting in a simple link to the
Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and other sites that reference the word 'piano'. Worked wonders for my wife's site.
