>I'm having trouble selecting my keywords. I would like to use the targeted stratagy and not the blanketed stratagy, but I think I may have too many keywords. I have 10 all together. Is that too many?

Hi Chris, here is a long and lengthy response!!!!!!!

You seem to have a good selection of keywords, however they are all
tied up in phrases. eg., "how to make money on the internet".
Very targeted and likely to get a good response if someone searches
on that exact phrase. But what if they search on
"how to make lots of money on the internet"? Missed them......

You might want to rethink your keyword/phrase strategy a la a
discussion some time ago on this message board.

I also ran your opening page through Hiverify.
I have just started test this program so I cannot vouche to much
for the accuracy of the report but it did come up with the following results:-

This checks your keyword density in the actual main body text.
You will notice that money, the most obvious keyword I would have
thought, came up with a density of 0. This may be because it is
tied up in phgrases and doesn't stand alone. Another reason to think
about keywords rather than phrases.

Interestingly your highest keyword density is for "small".
I assume you don't want people asking how to make small money on the internet.

You may also want to check your spelling. eg.,

Welcome to Fast Mony. ?????

"A good thing about Angelfire, is that you get a snort URL".
Just as well the company is not called Angeldust??

Cheers and keep at it..
