    Hi All

    So my site has been up for around 12-16 weeks, I've submitted to google and directories, I've built a site map here are what I think could be the problems but I don't know enough about SEO to be sure:

    1. playlivemusic.net for a UK company, will the .net be adversely affecting?

    2. It's a forwarding domain, so the real website is http://web.me.com/nickraymond/Playlive/Home.html which the domain redirects to.

    3. Lack of traffic, am i right in thinking less traffic means lower ranking?

    4. iWeb, will google read its built in iweb and so rank it lower?

    I'm very interested to hear everyones suggestions and would be incredibly grateful for any ideas.

    Thank You

    Nick

    1. No.
    2. No as long as you use a 301 or 302 redirect rather than an html page redirecting.
    3. No. Less traffic just means you have not advertised the site well enough. Get more links, add more content is the magic rule.
    4. No.

    Google has already indexed your site by the way, so it is in the Google search directory it probably just does not have many links to it and thus has a low page rank.

    Agreed, "no" on all accounts. You can make improvements on your site to better your ranking, but some of it is hard to accomplish when using iWeb, but getting inbound links is one of the best ways.
