    Hi, I need help :)

    website is: http://www.flunkme.com/

    currently I have: student, university, forum, arcade, games, college reviews, college search, college matchmaker, college profiles, college ratings, financial aid


    I have no idea how search engines think and work... would it be better to put in keywords like "student community, student forum" or is it better to write it like "student, community, forum" instead of writing student for many times?

    also what do u think of my current keywords?

    One word keyphrases are very difficult to get high in search engines. I would recommend repeating the word. That is, "student community, student forum"

    Get this ebook (it's free, just download it and save it), and thank me later when you become a SEO master!

    SEO For Dummies.

    I guarantee that you will know more about SEO than thousand of webmasters.

    You should ACTUALLY (see below) have a read through Stoney's latest offering on KeyWord Research


    THen U'd better get them a different Book M8 - cause that one is crap - and that's my NICE version

    BTW - SEO For Dummies is a different Book...

    So let's try these instead shall we?? Or did ya figure a FREE book was gonna rock the SERPs? Puulleeaaazzzeee.....

    SEO Book by Aaron Wall; http://www.seobook.com/
    Mike Grehan SEO Book; http://www.search-engine-book.co.uk/
    Buyers Guide to SEO; http://www.sherpastore.com/Buyers-Guide-Search-Engine-Optimization.html
    Internet Marketing for Dummies; http://www.dummies.com/WileyCDA/DummiesTitle/productCd-0764507788.html


    ..and hey.. U read it right? Are U an SEO master now? He he.... If U are, it wasn't THAT book that did it.

    Sorry, nothing personal, but it's more hype than substance unfortunately

    not from a scratch, I've basic understanding. I'm an experienced web developer, I just know tricks how to optimize website code etc. I have no idea about keywords, since that's what my customers have to come up with themselves... I decided to plunge into SEO, to give some additional externalities to my customers :) that's pretty much it... plus that would help me allot with my current project.

    thx.
