    In the old days, Julie, (4-5 years ago), the engines were so hungry for
    listings that all you had to do was put up your site.

    Then a couple of years ago you had to have your keywords had to be in your
    meta tags - if they were, you'd get a decent listing in most engines.

    Now, all your meta tags (keyword, title, description, etc) have to be
    exactly right. Your page length has to be right for the particular engine.
    The number of occurrences of keywords on the page, the number of links on
    the page and the number of keywords in those links as well as in the link
    targets all have to be right. And on and on.

    Depending on the competition for your keyword phrases, your site probably
    needs to be professionally optimized to get any decent rankings. 'Why?', you
    may ask. Because the sites you're competing with probably are.

    But, there are hundreds (thousands?) of SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
    firms out there.

    How do you choose one? Get some recommendations. Make some calls. Ask for
    references. Ask to see rankings of sites that the company is working for or
    has recently done work for. Call the company who has (supposedly) been
    ranked highly and see if they're happy.

    You don't have to spend thousands of dollars to get listed highly. Just shop
    with common sense and with a budget in mind and you'll do fine.

    I beg your pardon? An SEO specialist can be a good idea. I used one for
    several years when I didn't want to deal with SE placement (for my clients)
    myself, and it worked quite well.
