Hello, are you clicking the green Publish to the web button? Once you are ready you need to publish your website by clicking that button. Saving is just saving it but it does not put it on the web. Also, when you publish it for the first time you need to pick a domain. You can buy one from Yola, you can get a free .yolasite.com domain (like: your-site.yolasite.com) or you can use your own domain that you already own.

Whenever you make changes to your website you need to publish your website again for those changes to appear on the internet. When you save it, it just saves it for you but to get those changes on the web you have to click Publish to the web button.

If you downloaded your site to host yourself, then you need to buy web hosting or get free web hosting. But if you are using the site builder it is much easier because you just click Publish to the web!

Hope this helps,
Nathan

Hi Matthew,

Nathan gave a great answer there! If you are still having trouble seeing all your site's pages after you publish can you try clearing your browser's cache, this could be the trouble and help the problem. Here is a link on how to do this: Clear Browser Cache.

I hope this information is helpful!
