Great...Yeah making a site is the easy part. Getting found is a forever process. . .I cringe when I see infomercials here in the USA where they make it seem like you make a site and millions of people find you..All wanting to send you money of course. ...Brianna gave you a good link to start getting a basic idea of how to get going. This forum is a great place to get help as needed.Most of us here started out not knowing a thing about making and promoting a site . . .Now my site is my only source of income.

Hi Timothy,

It does take time for your site to be indexed by search engines. In the meantime, please put your URL in the address bar of your browser instead of a search engine. Are you able to locate your site?

We have a tutorial that you may find helpful here: Promotion, SEO, Traffic and Advertising.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Hi Brianna
Thanks yeah continued looking to resolve the issue and stumbled upon the fact that it takes a bit of time to be indexed. It might be a point you have already thought of but, putting that in on the screen around the time of payment could save you a bit........ and my nerves;) thanks for the extra info. ta!
