Hello Warden,

Are you searching for your site in Google and other search engines?

If so it's quite possible that your site may only have been indexed by Google. You can try adding your site to other search engines

I don't know what you mean by "only I can access my site"? I think that if you add your URL into any web-browser it should be available for any.

Frustrated and a little embarrased when I tell my friends that I have a website with Yola, and they can't access it.

Hi warden,

Firstly your site is available on the web to anyone who enters the above website address.

It has been entered into Google and into Bing.

The next thing is it discoverable? This process is quite competitive and it depends on how high up Google for example would rank your site for a search phrase. This is similar for all web search engines.

To raise the likelihood of discoverability takes some work and the most important aspect is content. It should be original and interesting and of good quality. You need to keep adding information to your site.

Yola have a series of tutorials on this topic for their users benefit to learn from: in this link: https://www.yola.com/tutorials/catego...

Mind you, it's a little comforting to know that I am not the only one with this problem, thought I was going nuts.

Hi Warden

Can you explain again what the problem actually is? Gop has given you feedback above and made some helpful suggestions.

Please note that you will need to actively and constantly work on promoting your site, not only by using the Yola Gold tools. There are lots of options to drive traffic to your site and to improve your SEO performance, such as using the Yola Gold tools, doing regular SEO scans of your website, submitting your website to the major search engines, considering using a blog to add updated content to your website more frequently and easily, using Facebook business pages, etc. Unfortunately Yola will not be able to do these things for you, or to guarantee you a certain SEO performance for your website.

Please also see the link to our SEO tutorial section Gop has given you above as it provides tons of helpful information on this matter.

if you have more questions on these options, please let us know.
