    I am having a hard time figuring out how google is ranking one of my sites for these given search terms: kolea, kolea villas, and kolea rentals. I optimized the site for the terms kolea, villas, and rentals. I do not see any areas I went wrong on that (on or off the page). My page rank is higher than my competitors. I am not sure where I am going wrong. Any insight would be appreciated. My site is www.koleabeachvillas.com.

    Your site isn't optimized at all. You have no <h1> or <img> elements optimized with your keywords.

    Steve,
    I just had written you a response prior to reading the blog. That was very helpful and answered my questions. Is there a way to make the header tags smaller?

    You can use CSS to reduce the size of <h1>.... <h6> elements as follows:

    In the <head> of your HTML file put a reference to a stylesheet as follows:
    HTML Code:
    <head>
        <title>My Title</title>
        <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="text-styles.css" media="all" />
    </head>
    Then create a file called text-styles.css with the following in it:
    Code:
    /* Set the font for your general text */
    body, p, li {
        font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif;
        font-weight: normal;
    }
    
    /* Set paragraph and list item font size */
    p, li {
        font-size: 10pt;
    }
    
    /* Set the font for your headings */
    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {
        font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, Serif;
        font-weight: bold;
    }
    
    /* Set the point size for your headings */
    h1 { font-size: 16pt; )
    h2 { font-size: 14pt; )
    h3 { font-size: 12pt; )
    h4, h5, h6 { font-size: 10pt; )

    The design of the new site I am getting is supposed to be really good. I am hoping the code is easy to work with and they already have stuff such as this set up. Thanks for the info.
