    Need tips to boost my Google ranking on specific keywords.

    Hi all,

    I have a page within my website that lists insurance companies. The companies pay to be there because people from within my website visit this listing but I feel I would be able to ask for more money for a listing if my page ranked high in google when people searched for specific keywords.

    The page is here: http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-insurance/

    I would like this page to rank higher when people search for terms such as:

    motorcycle insurance
    motorcycle insurance quote
    online motorcycle quote
    etc.

    Here is the first part of my code:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Cheap online motorcycle insurance quote with visordown.com</TITLE>
    <META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <meta name="keywords" content="motorcycle insurance, online, quote, cheap, free, insureance, multi-bike, uk, deal, insure, policy, best, motorbike, bike, renewal, ebike, bennetts, devitt, oneinsure, insrance, bikesure, insurnce, bikers, uk bike insurance, scooter, cheaper," />
    <meta name="description" content="Cheap online motorcycle insurance quotes directory" />
    <body bgcolor="#404040"> 
     
    <a href="cheap-motorcycle-insurance-quote.php"><IMG SRC="cheap-motorcycle-insurance.jpg" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0 ALT="Cheap motorcycle insurance quote"></a>
    <a href="index.html"><IMG SRC="online-motorcycle-insurance.jpg" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0 ALT="online motorcycle insurance"></a>
    <a href="motorcycle-insurance.php"><IMG SRC="motorcycle-insurance.jpg" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0 ALT="motorcycle insurance quote"></a>
    I would appreciate any tips, especially if I'm doing anything drastically wrong with my code.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for your replies. What do you mean by backlinks, do you mean getting people to link to that page, or linking to that page from other areas on my own website?

    Backlinks are links to your site from other sites.

    get as much as inboundlink (backlink) with anchor text of your targeted Key-phrase.
    This is only way through which you can boos your SERP.

    thanks

    Not true. Opimising your on page content will boost you in the SERPs. You might be referring to boosting your PR...

    In my exprience anchor text with proper keywords = #1 priority
    And proper onpage optimization is just a normal thing to do on every site. It's not a priority. It's just the way you build your site.

    It certainly is a priority! But you are right - it should be the way you build your site. You have to bear in mind though, that one of the purposes of this forum is to help people that are new to SEO and therefore don't build their sites like that straight off...

    Hi there, thanks for the link. I used it and it said I had no keywords or description, when I do, they are as below:

    Code:
     <META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <meta name="keywords" content="motorcycle insurance, bike insurance, motor insurance, motorcycle insurance quote, online, quote, cheap, free, insureance, multi-bike, uk, deal, insure, policy, best, motorbike, bike, renewal, ebike, bennetts, devitt, oneinsure, insrance, bikesure, insurnce,  bikers, uk bike insurance, scooter, cheaper," />
    <meta name="description" content="Motorcycle Insurance - Motorcycle Insurance Quote, Cheap Motorcycle Insurance - Cheap online motorcycle insurance quotes directory" />
    <body bgcolor="#404040">
