After publishing, you still need to contact the search-engines to get your site listed. Most allow free listing, including Google. It may take up to 2 weeks before it gets placed on their search engines.

Search for Free Website Submission and choose several.

Meantime, you can see your website if you type the full address (as it appears when you submit your site in Yola) and go there. You can send this address to your friends for them to see your site also.

Hi cocobrowndesigns,

I am not sure if you're having a problem viewing your site when you type the URL into the address bar, or if you're not able to find it via a search engine.

If you aren't able to find it on Google yet, that is because your site still has to be indexed by the search engines. This can take anything from a week to a few months. There are many things you can do to speed up this process. Take a look at our tutorials on Promotion, SEO, traffic and advertising.

If you are having a problem viewing your published site altogether, please let us know so we can look into it.
