But if you want quick advice and not have to read all that...

Make your web page for your users, with appropriate page titles, HTML Standard, META tags, and make sure body content has good content.

Also get your link on a few good forums and thier websites with link titles like "The resource for experts to help you" woiuld be a good title for this website.

Actually it would be a very bad title - please stick to subjects you know something about.

Hi

Actually you don't have to do much to get your site on google. You don't need meta tags at all. Google will find you without those tags. As long as your content is rich (no spamming) and unique, google will find you, it just takes some time for the bots to index your site. There is however a service on google to submit your url to them for their bots to crawl, it might speed up the indexing process not too sure if it really effective or not, coz i never submit urls and still be able to get indexed by them. Anways here's the url to submit your site if you interested: http://www.google.com/addurl.html

regards-

Let me tell you a story.... are you sitting comfortably?

Once upon a time I had a useless little website which got 1-2 hits a day... I then found a website called www.dmoz.org which is a human edited directory... I submitted my site to the correct category, it was listed in a few days, my Google page rank according to my Google tool bar jumped from nothing, as I wasn’t listed on any search engine to 5/10 which is very good as EE only has 7/10, so I was then on Google and yahoo although buried under thousands of results, however it was a start... I have carefully submitted my website to various other well respected sites slowly building traffic and my Google ranking, and I am now TOP when searching for my main search term on Google and yahoo :-)  

The morals of the story:

> Submit to DMOZ to get on the ladder if you can find a proper category ...as all decent search engines cover it - this negates the need for submission to 50,000 search engines
> Submit your site to as many DECENT sites as you can, if you submit to junk sites you WILL drop down so control your links carefully, though the more the better
> Make sure your site can be read by the search engines spiders, try not to use too much dynamic content, make at least your home page something plain so it can be easily read
> Getting high up on search engines takes time!

Apart from the above make sure your content is useful, good spelling not too much text as I think Google discriminates against pages with too many 'keywords'  

You can also get firms to 'optimise' your site for search engines, this is an excellent idea providing the company is local -so you can spend a lot of time in consultation with them, also you have to not mind your site being messed around with ;) however make sure you get someone who knows what they are doing for this ...

by the way I am not too sure how well Google reads dynamic menus (pull-down, pop-up  java script type stuff)  so its best if you can to stick to something simple but effective so it can be read easily ... its the links within your site that Google really wants (but don’t put in hundreds ;) )

Hope  I have given you some hints and made you smile?

That happens almost %100 percent of the time with personal sites that include your name often even if you dont submit to DMOZ (which is becoming less and less popular as time goes on due to its many internal issues)

(heh unless your name is George Bush and you're not the president)
