Hi there
I have published my site today but cannot find it when I key in the URL address. I appreciate that it will not be available on a Google search but that does not matter as at the present time I only want my site for people I give the address out to. my site is favouritethings.syntahsite.com
Many thanks

Hi Kerry,

The link Jeremy gave you is working also working for me. So your site is published correctly. I'm attaching a picture of the browser window where I have typed in your address so that you can confirm this.

Can you tell me what happens when you try to view your site? What do you see? Do you receive any error messages?

We would like to help you get to the bottom of this.

Hi Kerry,

May I ask if you are entering the URL into a Google Search?

The reason I ask is that I typed the address into Google and got a listing as you outlined. You won't find your site yet as it almost certainly will not have been indexed by Google this soon. It can take a fair period for this to happen and then usually after you submit your site, verify it and submit a sitemap.

Thanks Peter as you can see I was being a dimwit! Entering it into the wrong search box, got overexcited about actually seeing the site for real I think! Thanks for the help though. It is all very daunting when you have not done anything like this before.

If you give your friends this link including the http:// - http://favouritethings.synthasite.com they will go to your page. If you type this in to a search you will not find it for at least a couple of weeks.

are you typing it into box 1 or 2?



you need to enter it into box 1

you can ask any question any time you like.
Investigate this further when you have time;
Your site sells a great product but its not clear how to buy them, you can add shopping facilities to your site from within the site editor.


good luck with your site/business. Lee.
