http://.www.melotimesmontanasapphires... has been published since early May 2011. I upgraded to Silver and paid $279.00 for five years which included my Domain Act Now and Host TuCows. I invested uncountable hours creating something I feel really good about. Because it represents my life's work and retirement at eighty-five I have to get it right. After discovering I had been "parked" I had to start all over with registering my website with directories, getting indexed by search engines, listed for keyword searches, verified with Google Webmaster, hit counter, mega tags added to head section; is there something else I should be doing to realize my first contact from a Search. Thank you for any helpful suggestions.

Dear khun Melba,

I have had a quick look at your site and the content is well presented with clear separation of various product groups and wonderful images of finished jewellery.

Your content is fresh and interesting. It does help to keep adding more content on a fairly regular basis. Not necessarily products but as much information and related stories. Things like maintenance of the pieces or stones, resetting, replacement, fakes, mixed stones, a list of maintenance jewellers who have an interest in your product. Guarantees and replacement policy are all aspects of importance and offer the interested parties a greater sense of trust and security.

If you have a group of like-minded contacts online then you may wish to extend and enhance this aspect by creating a Facebook and allowing the social aspect of the common interest to be explored. It may sound intimidating but really it isn't and it's a great way for people to become part of a community of interest. The word then tends to spread by the various people who join in on your Facebook.

It's very good to have a blog on your site where you can add your stories of finds and foibles as a personable communication with interested readers.

I hope that some of these may help you with your promotion of your fine products and I'm sure others will gladly add their experience of their successful promotion of their sites.

I wish you very much luck and a lot of satisfaction with your work.

Thank you Gop. I hope you received my other reply. I mentioned having already done some of the things you suggested; except to add I have a tumblr blog but have not learned to navigate so I am curious if Yola has a tutorial. One other thing--I love the picture of the child praying. Tell me about him; does we worship the same Jehovah? I would like to have a copy of the picture if possible. My Church has on-going Mission projects with Tanzinia South Africa (a ten day medical and well drilling just finished). We partner with BGEA and collect thousands of shoeboxes filled with new wrapped gifts at Christmas. I appreciate your suggestions. This problem has not been satisfied on my www.melotimes.com website. I can't quit now. Melba

Hello khun Melba,

Thanks for your post here. The boy isn't praying he is showing respect to his teacher. It's the common greeting of respect that students show their teacher.

Once a year there is a special school day called Wai Khru in June where the students line in front of the teachers and prostrate themselves by lying in a mermaid position on the floor and wai the teachers by holding their hands to hair-line level with palms pressed together. They then come back to resting on their knees and wait for an acknowledgement by the teachers still maintaining the Wai as you see this child doing. The teachers receive this sitting on a chair. It's very common to see a teacher with a tearful eye during this profound ceremony of respect. The students often give a lotus or other flower to their teacher and generally the teacher will make contact by placing their hand on the head or shoulder of the students.

It's a very happy day which both students and teacher look forward to and then they party by sharing food.

Thank you both Gop and Brianna for taking time to help Melba with her website www.melotimes.com; on January 9th, 2012 I still have not had a contact. I joined Facebook and Twitter months ago as well as Linkedin. Facebook posts one item (earrings) too many times on my home page which is a no-no for viewers. My Montana Sapphires are 100% guaranteed genuine and maintenance free. If they read my bios they know i was co-owner of the mine they came from and am well known throughout the industry in Montana and off shore. At eighty-five I have no intention of using any false advertising or information contrary to the highest moral standard which I abide by.

Hello,

I do understand what you are speaking of in regards to Facebook posting what they consider 'relevant' ads on the side of your page. Please note that these banner ads display differently on everyone's end it they are catered towards the information or categories that people spend most time visiting online.

One of the best things you can do to assist with being indexed in search engines is to regularly update your description, keywords and tags. Search engines crawl new information, and the more frequently you update this information, the more easier it will be for your site changes to be indexed.
