    Hi, I've recently created my second website in Dreamweaver which was a friend who has a bed and breakfast www.snowatthebarn.co.uk

    However I have various problems with it:

    1. The site looks fine in Safari/Firefox but on some computers which run Internet Explorer the Divs at the top of the page are all jumbled up and the text overlaps. I've posted the html for the index page and the code for the attached external style sheet at the bottom of this list of questions. Does anyone have any idea where I am going wrong? I've also attached a screenshot of what it looks like.

    2. I've tried googling the website and when I use certain keywords the site is listed but for some reason there is no blue title to click on - just the url at the bottom - again I've attached a screenshot. Can anyone see anything missing in my code which is causing this?

    3.The bed and breakfast/guest house is in a small village called Marshfield in South West England. There are probably only 2 or 3 other guest houses in the village. However when I google 'bed and breakfast marshfield' the site isn't listed until the 4th, 5th or 6th pages (depending on search terms). i have included a list of keywords in my code just after the head tag. Does anyone know why the site is comming down so low in the listings? I don't think he has any links to the site yet but surely the site should come up on the first or second page despite this?

    4. Further to the question above - there is a Marshfield in America - a lot of American sites are comming up before the site that I created. Should mine not be given priority for people searching in the UK since it has a uk domain name? I see that the two or three other bed and breakfasts in the village come up first and second when searching for 'bed and breakfast marshfiled'

    5.I have put a google map into his website in the 'Directions' page. However, despite listing his business with google maps, there is no pointer on the map. When I log into the google account I created for him and go to 'Maps' it shows his business marked on the map with a pointer but when I search in google there is no pointer. Any ideas what I need to do to get this to work?

    Here are the two screenshots - www simmondsdesign co uk/blog/photos (Ive left out the dots as Im not sure if links are allowed

    Hey Hazza,
    First I'll make comment on the SEO for the site.
    Your other pages have a page title but your home page does not.
    Well actually it's<title>-</title>
    Ooops.....
    If you google "seo starter guide" google have a great SEO starter pdf.
    Firstly it will tell you to "Create unique, accurate page titles", ie
    Your home page needs a nice unique targeted title like:
    <title>Marshfield Bed and Breakfast | Bed and Breakfast accommodation Marshfield near Bath</title>
    Each page should have a unique title and description about the text on each page.
    This should almost cover questions 2 - 4
    Layout I'll look at later.
    Cheers
