I have added the mehta description in the properties google code - and added keywords but still my site is not found under these tag words. The only way it shows on google is if I type Filan Forever (the name of the site) but not many people will type this name and if you type just Filan it does not appear in the results. How can I get this changed?

Thanks,

Hi Shazzy

Sadly such additions are not automatic and fast acting like Pepto Bismal. Rest assured that if you followed the proper steps your site will show up on a search engine search. Be patient because it takes time for them to crawl your site for content and it to appear in search results.

Here is something that might help you get to where you want quicker. I had done just as I described and it was a matter of one week before I was able to see results.

1) Goto http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

2) Then put your synthesite website URL in the text box after the (http://) www."yoursitehere".synthasite.com/ your site name in place of "yoursitehere".Don't forget to remove the commas. If you open your index page in your browser and highlight then copy your URL then paste into the box it works just as well but do remember to highlight the (http://) in the text box and then paste or you will have two (http://)'s in the address.

don't (Change frequency) and leave (Last modification) alone

3) Press (Start)

4) When its done save or (Download un-compressed XML Sitemap) to your computer then save to your File manager. Then update...

5) Then go here http://www.sitemapwriter.com/notify.php and type in your synthesite address in the text box after the http://

6) Don't change the (Search Engine) box and then click (Notify)

You are now going to be crawled by Google, Yahoo, Ask.com, Live and Moreover.com

This may take a few days and is up to their crawler schedule.

To upload your sitemap to your site is simple.

1) Open your page editor and in the toolbar you will click on a button that says "File Manager"

2) Once the file manager has opened you simply click the button that says "Upload"

3) In the File Upload pop up box click on the "Browse" button and search for the sitemap file you just created and then click on the file to highlight and click the "Ok" button

4) Click "OK" in the File Upload pop up box

5) Click "Close" in the File Manager

6) Then update your site to save the changes.

As to the Google webmasters tools you need to have your sitemap in place and in your site file manager first before you can use the webmasters tools.

1) Goto the Google webmasters tools dashboard and enter in your URL in the "ADD SITE" box provided then click "ADD SITE"

https://www.google.com/webmasters/too...

2) Then click on your sites link in blue

3) Then on the left side of the screen click on the "SITEMAPS" button.

4) Then click the "Add a Sitemap" link mid page.

5) Select "Add General Web Sitemap" in the drop down box.

6) Place the following inside the step 3 box resources/sitemap.xml

7) then click "Add General Web Sitemap"

That should do it...

I hope that can help you cut off a month in the waiting process...

Happy site building
Ed

Shazzy you are more than welcome...

I wish you all the best with your website and if you ever have any other problems just ask your question and hopefully soon it will be answered...;)

I gather that you had no problem understanding my tutorial then???

Now that the hard part is out of the way you might think about reading the link Marije gave above because it has to do with optimizing your site.
