How to SEO my site, & sidebar question

  1. Hi, i know this is a popular/general question. Alexa.com picked up my other wordpress site quickly (www.bedford-ny-real-estate.com) which is actually mostly down right now :( and am trying to work w/ that. My newest site: http://www.livearmonk.com isnt getting anything on alexa but is getting hits. Can anyone explain this and is it due to the redirect to the domain from wordpress? what can i do about it?

    Also, on my site (see page: http://livearmonk.com/search-the-mls/) i want to know why my sidebar is moved to the bottom of the page? I actually dont mind it, since if you see this page (http://livearmonk.com/blog/) my blog is really smushed and crammed and i would like to get the sidebar our of that page since you cant properly see my blog.

    Please help if you can w/ either question, thanks!

  2. Sidebar issue:

    Alexa issue:
    If your site livearmonk.com used to be a .wordpress.com site, then yes, basically you are starting Alexa with a blank page. Not much you can do about that.

  3. Thank you. Is there any way to add SEO widget to this version of wordpress & will (eventually) alexa pick it up? My bedford-ny-real-estate.com site was picked up w/in a day or two of installing the seo widget w/ my other wordpress.org hosting acct.

  4. I really would not worry about Alexa. Virtually nobody uses it anymore; they use Hitwise and Google. Those are the best judges of SEO.

    You have a static page as the entry point of your livemonk blog. That is going to SLAUGHTER your SEO. Do not do that; have the actual updating blog page as your entry page.

  5. So are you saying i should remove static page all togeher and leave it default blog page? thanks
