I don't have much graphics on the site. I have followed some guidelines, to add <h1>... bold, and others.

What I am not sure is what do you mean by email Google, MSN, Yahoo and other servers?
I am not sure, could you explain that a little bit better?

Thanks!

Optimizing your website so search engines find it is one thing. Optimizing your website so search engines rank it highly is another altogether.

First, 80% of all web searches go through Google, so they should be your primary concern. The first step is to submit your URL to Google so they know it is there.

Next, you will need to have meta tags on all of your web pages. Meta tags are too complicated to explain in detail here, but some web searches could turn up some detailed info for you. Here is an example:

Say you had a tutorial on removing Removed and you wanted to get it into Google. Lets say the URL for your tutorial is Removed Link. Your meta tags for that tutorial page would look like this:

<TITLE>Removed </TITLE>
<META NAME="KEYWORDS" CONTENT="Removed ">
<META NAME="description" CONTENT="This tutorial will show you how completely remove Removed from your Windows 2000/XP computer.">
<META NAME="rating" CONTENT="General">
<META NAME="revisit-after" CONTENT="1 days">
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="ALL">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

The Title section is what is displayed at the top of the browser window (this window's title is Geeks to Go! ->).

The keywords section tells the search engine to return your web page when certain keywords are searched for. Try to keep this to 10 words or less. More is not better here.

The Description section is what the search engine will print on the screen in the search results window when a someone searches. For example, if I go to Google and type in Removed, under Removed the description from my meta tag would appear. This is your opportunity to encourage people to click on your link. Word this carefully.

Leave the rating, robots, and revisit-after alone.

Once you have added your meta tags, you need are ready to compete! It can take Google anywhere from 24 hours to several weeks to find your website, and repeated submissions to their system does not help. Good luck!

No, not at all! As evidence, I added Removed to Google's index last week. IN the meta-tags on that page under description i wrote:

"This tutorial will show you how Removed from your computer."

If you do a Removed you will see that result 4 is the URL from above, and the description Google shows for it is exactly the same as the description I placed in the meta tags.

While Google does not ignore meta tags, they do rank other factors more highly than they do meta tags. There are hundreds of factors that go into the rank of a URL including keyword density, length of URL registration, IP Address of the server where the URL is hosted, and the number of backlinks to a given page.

So, all I have to do is what you showed above that would optimize me for a google search? Or would I have to do something else?
Check the site I worked on for my Dad:

http://metroforcesecurity.com

They only way I'll get a result is if I type Metro Force Security, why can't I just type Security Services in Miami or something and get me on at least the first page?

While at it, you could comment on the site as well!

SEO is not getting your site on a search engine's index, it's getting the highest ranking possible. ranking is determined by keyword density, the number of links TO your page from other sites (and the ranking of the sites linking to you (link quality)), and those h1, p things mentioned early in the discussion
