    Strewth. Get over it. I have :)

    Having determinded that you are not now a spammer maybe we can have a look
    at your site:

    http://www.apicalsoft.com/

    Hmmm. Fixed size. Not good.

    Tables for layout. CSS is much more versatile.

    Your title element is just plain stupid. nobody has a browser window wide
    enough to have all that in the caption bar.

    With a narrow window your navbar text wraps. Badly.

    That blue bar at the top gets away at window widths > 1000 or so. It also
    starts to warp at > 1400. Looks bad.

    Come back when you have fixed those bits.

    The it defeats its purpose since you're diluting the effectiveness of the
    keywords. Use two or three, four at the most in the title.

    What? Who told you that? Your SEO specialist?

    The contents of the title element is usually presented in the title bar of
    the users UA. That is, it is for the user, not any search engine. I woud
    right now fire your SEO specialist. He is talking out of his arse :)

    Google gives heavy weighting for keywords in the title.

    But if it contains more words, individual words get lighter weight. Also,
    I remember someone saying long titles crash browser (don't recall which)

    Please see previous post in this thread:
    "Then it defeats its purpose since you're diluting the effectiveness of the

    Oh yeah, search engines just LOVE this kind of thing.

    Like, if you search Google for website monitor you're right up there on
    page.. um... hang on a sec...

    Nope, totally off the radar. I hope you didn't pay too much for this SEO
    advice.

    BTW, could you fix your system clock? It's playing merry havoc with my
    ordering here.

    Or are you really posting from the future? If so could you keep an eye out
    for tomorrow's lottery numbers for me?

    Cheers,

    Phil

    thank you for your advice, but actually, it's a background picture, so it
    can display correctly both in 1024 * 768 and 800 * 600.
    we have a guy who is a professional on website design, he won't make such a
    foolish mistake. :)
