Hi DirtyJoe

I recommend adding Google Analytics to your site. This will send a site map to Google and also give you a great way of tracking the visitors to your site. Here's how it's done:

1)Go to Google Analytics and sign up for a free account.
2)Type in the URL of your site
3)Copy the verification code provided by Google Analytics
4)Go to SynthaSite and drop an HTML widget at the bottom of every page you want to track.
5)Paste the code from Google Analytics over the default code in the HTML editor.
6)Republish your site.

Your site will now be verified with Google Analytics, and you can use your Analytics account to track the visitors to your site.

Internet Explorer is a browser, so you can always use your browser to get to your site by typing in the exact address. Google is a search engine and it therefore first needs to index your site. This can take anywhere from a few days to three months. When you publish your site we submit it to Google on your behalf, but we can't guarantee when they will index it. See the following tutorial for tips on promoting your site: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p.... Good luck with getting your site indexed by Google!

My site is now on google but how do I go about adding a few tag words to the process. At the moment the site is only shown if you type in the exact words for my site. I would like to add a few more specific words to the search engine.

You can add keywords that are specific to your site in the properties bar within synthasite(where you edit the page etc).

Also use keywords that are within your text content of your page and dont forget to use keywords as mentioned above on every page of your site also within the properties is the description tag which is essential as this is what shows up on search engine results so make you include your keywords in this description.

Until the next time google index your site which i think all depends how popular your site is.
Also if someone finds your site via search engines etc the description keywords etc will be changed as soon as you update your site i belive.
