Hi Cheri,

John Mc's suggestion of using RSS feeds on a blog is really great, and worth checking out for you.

Another great way thing is two notify people who don't just follow your site, but those that follow you elsewhere too, you might find you'll pick up an extra visitor or two that you wouldn't have otherwise.

What I'm getting at is that when you update your Yola site, there is an opportunity for you to alert everybody who follows you on Facebook and Twitter. That's a feature with a lot of impact that's real easy to use.

When you want to update your site, click on the green "Publish to the Web" button. A dialog will display to tell you the progress of your update and when it has finished updating. From that very dialog you will be able to enter custom messages for your Facebook and Twitter followers telling them that there is brand new content they can see at your site!

Hope this helps!
