I let my yola silver package expire last year but instantly renewed my domain name and saw that I was on yola bronze which I still am. I just noticed that the main page says that my site is unpublished and only I can see the changes because I have not renewed my yola silver account. I dont want to renew my yola silver and I want my site to show back up in google as I have been wondering where my traffic went. You now have to type my web address directly into google to find it. It was ranking at the top or at least the 2nd page of results. This is frustrating.

Hi there,

I can understand how alarming that message is, and confusing as well as it's not accurate. As a Yola Bronze member you are only entitled to 5 websites within your account. You currently have 7 websites published in your account. Due to this, our procedure is to unpublish all of the sites within your account forcing you to decide on the 5 you wish to republish to bring you within your account limits. Alternately of course you could upgrade your account back to Silver and all 7 websites could remain published. In your case none of your websites have been unpublished as of yet as a courtesy, we're allowing you time to bring your account within limits or upgrade your account. I can assure you this has no impact on your website traffic or search standing.

I see you just have numerous .yolasite subdomains all directing customers to your main website: http://www.livingwoodflutes.com/. As such you would be better served by deleting those subdomain websites to bring your account within limits, remaining a bronze subscriber and adding some additional custom domains to your parent site to help increase traffic and localalized SEO.
