Hi Warden,

First of all it can take an undefined period for search engines to randomly find your site. This can often be expedited by registering your site with the search engines. Yola Gold does this as part of it's system. I believe that local boost also does this within it's spectrum of registry placements. You can also do this manually.

You would need to look at the various search engine info and instruction pages for this. There is a tutorial for registering your site with Bing on this forum: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/ver...

Bing and Yahoo are in tandem so registering with Bing should automatically register it with Yahoo.

For Ask you could try this:

Launch a new Web browser and enter "http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://(path to your sitemap)" into the URL field. Change "path to your sitemap" to the actual path to your sitemap {eg: mysite.com/sitemap.xml}. Press "Enter." You will see a message display stating that your sitemap submission to Ask.com was successful.


Yola automatically generate the sitemap for you so this is named: eg: {mysite.com}/sitemap.xml.

Let me know if you want some clarification on this.
