Have you submitted it to the appropriate parties?

Generally you'll have to go to say... Google, and submit your entry to them.

Assuming that you have; it can take as long as a few days to show up, depending on the current load on the crawling system.

Have you logged into Google Webmaster Tools to see what they are interpreting?

There is a 'Crawl as Google' section of Webmaster Tools that allows you to see what Google extrapolates from a crawl of your page. This is also one of the fastest ways to get Google to crawl your site RIGHT NOW I SAY!

Hope it helps. I'll keep an eye for further updates.

Doing SEO for a wik is different from a wordpress installation and so on.

What's your URL BTW?

I'm sure I can tell you at a glance what Google is seeing and probably figure out why you're not popping up.

Adding captions and alt tags to your photos in the gallery may help them get picked up at Google images, as well as being nice for your visitors.

Some of your page titles are rendering underneath the red menu bar and can't be read. I'm using Firefox 32.0.2. Check your site under multiple browsers and screen resolutions to ensure it is rendering properly.

Your page titles (ex: Imperial Junkets - Hotels in Atlantic City, Resorts Casino Hotel, Vacations In Atlantic City) read more like a keyword list. Write a title that uses your keywords but is display friendly - what do you want people to read in your search engine listing? Make sure it clearly states your purpose and value, but not too long. Same goes with page descriptions - (We are Casino representatives looking for casino goers that want to go to the Resorts Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey Atlantic City hotels.) I might suggest you change your description to focus more on what you can do for me, the person reading your search engine listing, rather than what you are looking for. Keep it customer focused.

Google search of site: imperialjunkets.com shows you have been picked up by the big G, but perhaps you feel you are not placing well. Take a good hard look at your high ranked competitor's websites. Compare design, layout, titles, backlinks, etc. Are there additional keywords you could be using on your site that might give search engines a clearer idea of what you're all about? (but never just drop keywords, they have to be natural part of your content.)

Backlinks are important to ranking, but they have to be natural. Perhaps if you have happy customers that have websites, they could post a link and referral for you.

Another suggestion might be to look at your colors. Black text/white pages is pretty standard, professional and easily read by all. Some people have trouble with white text on black. Same with the white text in the red menu bar. It may sound boring, but you want to make sure your site is universally user friendly and professional looking. It inspires customer confidence. Also try justifying your paragraphs, or aligning the text to the left - this makes blocks of text easier to read.

There are a lot of free SEO page analysis tools out there that will scan your site for you and give you automated suggestions. This can be a good place to start to learn more about the basics of what helps your site to rank better.

Nailed it.

Best of luck, and I can help if you need further explanation of some of this. Better key-wording etc.

Maybe you should add an allow phrase to your robots.txt?

An updated sitemap was my first thought, too.

It really is a key part of good SEO.

Have someone write a short bit about your site in GOOGLE BLOGGER. Following that, a GOOGLE search by name, will pop you up on the 1st page there. It works.

ETA: how do I add an allow phrase to my robots.txt?

< img src = "..." alt="Alternate text goes here">


For robots.txt you can only disallow crawlers from certain directories or files.

User-agent: *
Disallow: /subdir
Disallow: /subdir2
Disallow: test.php
