    Getting Traffic

    I am having trouble getting traffic to my site. I have tried alot of those traffic exchange sites. They have produced quite a few hits but are those good hits, worth anything. Any Onput on traffic exchange surf sites? Also I have tried all the free SEO's and they all say that my site is up to par but yet I am not able to get anywhere on the search engines. How long does it usually take. Can you take a look and tell me if you see anything wrong with my site. When i run the spider simulator it says it is spider freindly. Also how do you know when your site has been spidered? I am currently using direct admin for my hosting control panel.
    Thanks to all in advance I look forward to your opinions.

    It looks like you are getting your moneys worth, nothing for nothing

    Those traffic exchange sites are worthless, none of the traffic makes it to your site because they are interested in what you are offering.

    As far as the SEO, please tell me who said the site is ready, the idiots should be shot. To put it simply, metas and titles do not belong scattered throughout the body.

    I used WebCEO. And I do not understand what you mean by metas and titles being scattered throught the body. Is that whats happening on my site? I am very new to this.

    Forgot to add, it looks like your domain is less than 2 weeks old so you will need to be a little more patient. You will have to watch your logs for signs of spider visits.

    Look at your code and you will see what I mean.

    I just looked at my index page through FP 2003 and It looks like the title and meta tags are where they should be.
    Code:
    {Header}
    <Title>Passionate Hearts Personals. Your last stop for finding your true love.</Title>
    <META Name="Keywords" Content=" free personals, Free, online dating, singles, love, romance, friendship, relationship, personal ad, matchmaking, single, find, date, people, dating, photo, pictures, gay personal, photo personal, search, friend, dating service, gay, lesbian, partner, christian, matching, advice">
    <META Name="Description" Content="Passionate Hearts Personals is your one source for free personals. Here you can post a FREE profile and search for singles across the globe.">
    <META Name="Author" Content="David LaFlair">
    <META Name="Robots" Content="index,follow">
    <META Name="Googlebot" Content="index,follow">

    When placing code in your post please use the "code" or "html" buttons.

    Look at the code that is being put out, to do this go to your site, right click and click view source.

    You will need to look at each individual file which is being included. From here it looks like your searches.

    Or a couple of files once. Look in every included file and I am sure you will get it sorted.

    I did notice that I have the meta tags on 2 files ones index.html and the other is header_all.html. Could that be where the problem is coming from? Should i just have the title and meta tags on the index page and thats it?

    Getting ranked takes time!

    It takes time to build your PR, usually many months.
    - One suggestion is to put a link directory on your site

    - Use GOOGLE adwords to get your site out.

    - Don't get cought up in paying for traffic as it never works

    - A website takes a lot of work and time to build or a lot of money to pay for advertising if you do not have the time or ambition to build.

    I could go on an on!

    The bad thing is Google adwords cost alot of money and I dont have the money to spend I am basically trying to do everything by myself without money. Thats the one downfall of starting out.
