iWeb and SEO two different worlds

I am trying to use iWeb, I really am. I just get really frustrated with it sometimes. So, apologies to anyone who is currently taken aback by the amateur look to my navigation. I'm having to recode the nav bar and then push it into iWeb. I am using the approach taken over at All About Web for fixing the iWeb nav bar.

Sometimes iWeb is like that person you used to date: really pretty but such high maintenance.

So now, after I make my pretty pages in iWeb, I have to load each page into TextWrangler to add my keywords and google tracking code. Then ftp everything over by hand. I had been using the RAGE iWeb SEO tool to add keywords but it died during its most recent update and I just haven't had a chance to see if it was the tool that died or something with my computer.

Anyway, as my old affair with FrontPage devolved into Notepad and the command line, my recent fling with iWeb seems to be slowly morphing into vi/TextWrangler/Terminal. These kind of programs (iWeb and FrontPage) have a real place in the computer world as they are helping move the whole everyone-is-a-publisher democratization of content. However, when they try to "help" me with my pages, they often don't.
