Hi. I haven't officially published my site -- still working on it. Because of this, whenever the pop-up window came up asking me if I wanted yola to put my site on the search engines, I have clicked "close" instead of accepting and saying yes. Now I can't find the pop-up! I think I saw it when adding a PayPal widget -- but now it's not coming up. Have I "closed" too often so yola thinks I don't want this feature? I DO I DO! How can I get it back to accept?

Hello Liz

I have just responded to you email but I'll copy my response here as well so that others may benefit from this:

I think what you're seeing is what you see in the dialog box when you try to publish your site. It says something along the lines of:

A professional address:

- Improves your chances of being found on Google

- Allows you to create email addresses

- Presents a professional image

- Instantly works with your website

- Only costs $19.95/year
