FrontPage is king ?

Baz,

the site is great, but I think you're missing the point.

The reason folk on this BB criticise FrontPage versus hand-coded
HTML is that you don't have the same control over your TAGS.

We are all interested in promoting our sites by using search engine
positioning techniques, and for this you need to hand code pages.

'Visit Britain' doesn't depend on good meta tagging etc because
its got an obscene amount of links (about 989, according to Infoseek)

That's why your traffic is going through the roof.

Links from other sites provide as much traffic as search engines
and in some cases more. I suspect 'Visit Britain' only gets a fraction
of its traffic from search engines.

We'd all love to have 1000 links to our pages, then the good folks
at Deadlock would be out of a job :)


Jim C
