Hi Steve,

This means that your site has not been indexed by search engines yet. It takes time for new sites to be picked up by search engines, and there's no guarantee that you'll show up for the searches you want to. There are however, things you can do to increase your visibility.

Search engines like Google, show users the sites that they think the users will find useful.

The most important things you can do to get your site indexed is to update your content frequently and get other related sites to link to your site. If users like your site enough to post a link to it, search engines begin to trust your site a little more.

This also applies to visitors - the more visitors you have, the more likely search engines are to send other visitors to you. While many users have achieved good search engine rankings with a SynthaSite subdomain, using a custom domain name will make it easier for users to remember and revisit your site.

You can also add tags to your pages to tell search engines what your site is about. These are key words which will help search engines identify your site.

In the properties sidebar for each page you will see a field labeled "Keywords".

Type your tags in there - your location, your business, what you offer etc.

This is the place to put the sorts of things you'd expect people to be typing into search engines to find you.

You should also add a description into the "Description" field - this should be a sentence or two describing your site. An example of a description would be "The Quick & Easy Website Builder that Requires NO Technical Skills and offers free website hosting." The "Window Title" is what shows up at the top of a browser when viewing your page - this won't affect SEO but you should make sure this accurately represents your site. Then be sure to republish your site.

If you're a small business or affinity group, you may want to have a professional help get traffic to your site. Some businesses on SynthaSite have found it useful to work with an SEO (search engine optimization) company to improve their rankings and reach visitors. If you'd like to do so, we suggest speaking with our partner InLocal http://www.inlocal.com/?kbid=4268&m=20

I hope this information is helpful to you.

You can summit your site threw these links. Sometimes they show up in a day or 2 and other seems like it take for ever.

For Yahoo http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/...

For MSN http://search.msn.com/docs/submit.asp...

For googles http://www.google.com/addurl/?continu...

http://www.webceo.com/pricing/index.htm
The above link is for a program that I use. Its free and a pay to use section. The free one is good by itself, but shows how to list on about 350 search engines,(some search engines free some pay some both) how to improve ranking, keywords, and much more that search engines use in finding your site. Read info before installing and see if it may work for you. They even have a section there that they will monitor your site and inform you if site goes down. Again free and pay to use sections.
