I run or help run a few web-sites dedicated to musicians John Barry, Matt Monro, Adam Faith & Ron Grainer. Naturally,
like everybody else, I want them to appear near the top in searches. This is not a problem as far as MSN goes, as all four appear in the top ten - a couple are virtually top. And two of them also appear very high up in Google and Yahoo.
However, in the case of the other two, they are either nowhere at all or virtually nowhere in Google and Yahoo. I think it must be something to do with the URL name itself. The two that are nowhere end as org.uk/home.php - the ones that rank high end in org.uk
I've read all kinds of comment about php, many offering contradictory advice on the subject. My webmaster can't understand why this might a problem but it just seems bizarre that the Ron Grainer site could be number one on MSN searches but nowhere at all on Google or Yahoo.
Neither of us are very experienced in the field so any help would be much appreciated!!
