    Before even consdiering "beta testing" your website, have you examined your SEO metatags lately. They are in need major review and editing. Here is a short analysis along with suggested improvements:

    1. Current:<title>

    EduGuide | Your Roadmap to Student Success</title>

    Improvement with removal of the domain name since it's not a major brand and in its place, generic listing of services followed with placement of your business location, city, state: <title>____ educational services, etc. | [city, state, country]</title>

    2. Current:<meta id="MetaDescription" name="DESCRIPTION" content="The EduGuide website is your best destination for tips and information on how to better assist your child with their education." />

    Improvement with the addition of more text, up to 41 words to compose complete sentences::<meta id="MetaDescription" name="DESCRIPTION" content="The EduGuide website is your best destination for tips and information on how to better assist your child with their education. __________ [more text]" />

    3. Current:<meta id="MetaKeywords" name="KEYWORDS" content="college,middle school,high school,elementary school,getting better grades, doing research,working with teachers" />

    Improvement with removal of duplicate/spamdexed entries [the word "school"] , use of plural and compound variations separated by a space and comma::<meta id="MetaKeywords" name="KEYWORDS" content="colleges, middle schools, high, elementary, getting better grades, doing research, working with teachers" />

    Hopefully you are incorporate the suggested improvements so that your website can obtain a high PR on Google and Yahoo.
