    time frame = 1 month? You need a miracle, plain and simple.

    It's very hard to get listed in google serps in less than 3 months much less 1 month... Just start aquiring links.. (not too many).. It will take more than a month though...

    CSS Design That Validates
    10 good text content links from PR 5+ sites
    Incredible content
    a proper robots.txt
    299 yahoo inclusion Yahoo retains pagerank, meaning the directory (yahoo) does not pass pr to you. However, I have sites that are not in the Y directory and do not fair as well as the sites that I have paid to include. (my own experience)
    Your goal is not unattainable but your plate full.
    XML Feed on a few yahoo my.yhoo pages.

    Good Luck!

    Good luck geting out of the sand box with in SIX months! If you want to get to the top, you better pay Google to place you there, aka AdWords.

    Neither of those are necessary to get ranked, or to be ranked well.

    A CSS-based design is a great thing to have... but unless you have incredibly bloated code or markup errors that actually damage the way a Search Engine reads your page, this isn't a requirement.

    robots.txt won't affect your rankings at all, unless you use it to block search engines from your site.

    robots doesn't do anything he's right... don't worry about that.

    make sure you have a good, easy to read navigational structure with a sitemap link on everypage.

    make sure your title tag matches your h1 tag, and that you use your keyphrase in your content body.

    if you have an established domain that would help too...

    While a robots.txt file will not help you rank my friends it is the first line of defense against scrapping, mail and link harvesting and finally preventing sensitive or non-public data from being indexed....

    Toddieg - DO you have a TOS that states that repurposing your data(content) is not permitted??? Becuase if I point a spider to harvest your data and repurpose it for a surfing report, guess what, its legal.

    Patrick 325 - make sure you implement a robots.txt file, its comon sense.

    Watch and see if o'll ToddieG puts one up in the next month. My money says he does.

    If you need any help writing one, I'd be happy to pass you one that blocks all the known naughy spiders. Ex. Arelis - MailSiphon and the like.

    Advice for all. These boards are opinions and experiences. When choosing whos adivce to take and you're lucky enough to be given advice by one whom stuffs their signature with links; search on G, not Y for their sites and even their anchor text. If they do not show on page 1 ask them why and then tell them to go back to work on their site rather then picking apart one's opinion.....

    Well. I have a similar experience
    I created a site on 20/4/2005, did not submit it to any search engines but got links to it from like 50 sites (with PR from 0 to 4). 5 days later, I was ranked the first for like 4 keywords I targeted.

    of course it makes sense to have a robots.txt file and code with web standards in mind. But that has nothing to do with your ranking or the topic. That's what he is saying.

    Ha! Good Point Golgotha!

    I know it was just the remark
    robots doesn't do anything he's right... don't worry about that.
    that fearfully would steer this person away from ever looking at implementing a good robots.txt file.

    you're kidding right? I have a site pulling 30k visitors a day and has been above 20k/day for a month now.... Domain registered in mid December. There's no way the sandbox could be longer than 3mnths. I only started buying links about 1mnth before it took off. I just upped the budget for that site to about $800/mnth to see how much higher traffic can get.

    Buy a couple PR7 links and you'll kill that PR4 easily.... If that fails buy a massive backlinks package.

    Scrapers, mail and link harvesters are highly unlikely to adhere to the robots.txt file.

    Yes but the off the shelf ones will and that is what most new to SEO peeps purchase.

    Arelis - IBP and so on......

    Its only when we see the limitations of one or another that they are forced to write thier own.

    sigs help quite a bit... people see them and visit them... many that find the site useful pass it on to others... links just come as a result!
