What an interesting site!

Maybe one suggestion is to list different stores or online site which offer gluten-free products?

As for getting your site out there on the search engines, I suggest verifying your site with Google Webmaster.

For detailed, step-by-step, instructions on how to verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit a sitemap, please see our Google Webmaster Tutorial. Please use our instructions and not Google's. Google's are written on the assumption that you are coding the website from scratch. Our instructions are written to work specifically with Yola.

A great way to promote your site and any updates you make is through Twitter. If you have a Twitter account, you can easily Tweet any changes or updates you make when you publish! For more information on this please see this thread in our forum: Twitter Button - Tweet your new site or your latest changes!.

If you don't have a Twitter account and would like to get one to make use of this promotion tool, please go to Twitter.com and sign up for a Free account!

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Sanja,

Thank you for taking the time to look at my site. I will definitely take your advice with adding stores where you can find gluten free products.

I took your suggestion with Google Webmaster and used the tutorial to submit my site to Google. At this point though I am stumped on what happens next or what to do with Google Webmaster. I completed the tutorial and everything was verified, but what and how do I go about using Google Webmaster for the future?

Thanks for all your help so far!
