I am trying to add key words to my site.
I type them in but it doesn't retain the information, I tried saving the page and publishing to the web but it still doesn't retain the information.
Any idea what am I doing wrong?

Hello Shannon,

I've done a quick test on my site and I've been able to add the keywords. Would you mind posting the following information so that we can take a look:

1. What browser and version are you using?
2. What is your site's URL?
3. Does it happen on a specific page of your site?
4. What are the keywords you are trying to enter?

I've tried in 3 browsers chrome, ie8 and, fire fox.
url is www.DMScoDesign.com
I've only tried to add key words to my home page to start.
I've tried several key words. Should different key words make a difference?

Hi Shannon - I've tested adding keywords on your site and unfortunately I'm unable to replicate the problem. The reason I asked about which keywords you were using was to find out if you were perhaps adding something unique or different than words and numbers?

Another thing you can try (so that we can find out if the problem lies with Yola or perhaps a setting on your system), is to try and do this on another computer.

Just to make sure, here are the steps (although I'm sure this is what you're doing :)
1. Open your site in the Sitebuilder and click on the Properties tab.
2. Type in your keywords and click on the Save button.
3. Republish your site by clicking on "Publish to the web".

Lastly, you can try clearing your browser's cache: http://www.google.com/support/account.... This seems to magically solve a lot of problems and I'm not sure if it will help here.

Hello Shannon

Thank you for your continued patience as we continue to work with you on this. I'm wondering where you're trying to add your keywords? I've attached a screenshot of where you should be adding your keywords.



Can you please let us know if that is where you've been trying to add your keywords? If you still have trouble with this, please let us know what keywords you would like to add and we can try this for you.

Hello Shannon,

I just looked at your site too. It looks like you haven't added any keywords yet. Did you try to add them in the properties box (Sanja's screenshot) yet?
