According to my post from week ago: far away from the first site.

Um that's when this thread was posted.[/quote:11xtyfm5]

They're new visitors, not users already browsing any page on the site, which makes it impressive.

Whilst I appreciate we need to cover more keywords, I really can't see how that can be efficiently done so as to overlap areas like 'game making' and 'game creation'. Keyword meta tags aren't the primary way to boost rankings, neither are website titles. The best way seems to be links from very large websites on the subject, which is harder done.

Linking to the site from other sites is verry importand. However site content have to cover this links, if you know what i meen.

For google importand are :
Title
Description meta tag
Headings
Links in Lists
Links in content

If you would let me do the site for you i would cover all of that ^^ btw. i did small redesign of the mock up. check it out, and tell me what you think Rich.

BTW2. I just seen you helped me out a little bit with the hosting. You know that the more ppl will host, there will be more good links comming to Cons site as well :) thats my strategy at the moment.

How do you know ? ^^ Google is showing keywords from the description. It's better to preapare good SEO description than let google include first few sentences as a description. Will index faster.

They stopped using metadata for ranking years ago from idiots abusing it.

Lol, but description and title are still in use even by google. Lol And especialy title which is covering the keywords in content.

As of right now (in the US at least) googling "construct" not only ranks the Scirra site as #2 (second only to Merriam-Webster's definition), but it has one of those indented sub-results underneath it as well to make it stand out. Also, there's another listing a little further down the page, so that's three spots on the first results page.

Googling "game maker" unsurprisingly only returns results for Game Maker, but "open source game maker" kicks back Scirra as the #1 result :).
