Question: Our website runs directly from our membership database. We have little control on the page names and our urls generally tend to run about 90 characters long. Do we have a chance of optimizting our website?
Answer: Unfortunately, you MUST be able to control the HTML tags on your website to be effective. The TITLE tag, for example, is hugely important. So you need to wrestle control on that tag in order to make it work.
That said, a few basic tags have a HUGE impact. So if you can prioritize and get those tags to work, you can still have a huge impact on your Google performance.
