    Hi Jai,

    Your blog has a very nice layout, however it is not search engine friendly. Here are some suggestions to improve your blog functionality with respect to search engines:

    1) Title optimization: The title of your blog pages need to be optimized so that the title of pages comes before the blog name, like: Page Title > Your Blog Name.

    Plugin: Optimal Title

    2) Theme Optimization: Your blog theme is structured such that (HTML code) the navigation links (both side columns) comes before the actual content of the pages. Search engines like to see the actual content first. If your content is burried at the bottom, it get's less weightage.

    Suggestion: Choose any plugin that is search engines friendly. Analyze by looking at the source code. The content should come first then navigation links.

    3) Description: Your are using your blog description as the description for all your pages, which is not good at all.

    Plugin: Head META Description. This plugin will either take the first few words of the content or an excerpt (if specified).

    4) Keywords: I would suggest not to use it at all as most search engines ignore this. Also, if the tag is filled automatically, it may confuse the search engines as such options returns a very broad range of keywords. Keywords, if present, should generally be not more than 2-3.

    Thanks for the suggestions Vishal. I am very much new to this wordpress blog, looking around the plugins to get things. You have given some useful links and I will try to make things better for search engines. Still I am getting few results from search engines now, but I think the modifications you said above could make more results from SE. Thank you so much for taking time...[​IMG]

    Maybe you want to put your blog in the sub directory instead of the main page like Then you can put other things on the main domain.
