Hi PicturePerfect,

It takes time for new sites to be picked up by search engines. There are however, things you can do to increase your ranking.

When you publish your site we add it to Google's index of sites on your behalf. Then it's a matter of sitting back and waiting for Google's crawlers to reach your site. This could take as little as a few days, or as long as a few months. Unfortunately, this is out of our control.

The most important things you can do to get your site indexed is to update your content frequently, and get other related sites to link to your site. Search engines like sites with inbound links from other quality sites.

Here is a link to a tutorial that gives you some more tips on attracting visitors: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/p...
We also have a thread in this forum with more info: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite..., as well as user who has created a site related to this topic: http://synthasiteseo.blogspot.com/

You can start attracting visitors to your site immediately by visiting this thread in this forum and posting a link to your site: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

You can also add tags to your pages. These are key words which will help search engines identify your site. In the properties sidebar for each page you will see a field labelled "Keywords". Type your tags in there - your location, your business, what you offer etc. This is the place to put the sorts of things you'd expect people to be typing into search engines to find you. Then republish your site.

You can add Google Webmaster code to your site which helps with the verification process, we have a detailed tutorial explaining the process: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/g...
