It looks great Margie, very easy to read and simple to navigate.

Is that the default banner? - maybe change this if it is but it kind of fits the site well so its not a big issue.

Apart from that theres nothing, maybe add a few images to the rest of the site - a picture says a thousand words (so they say).

As its a proffesional site it might be worth paying 9.95 and removing the Yola link but again not that important.

Really good - you should be proud.

Great work Margie! Your site has a clear structure and your text is neat and professional. I am glad you found it easy to build your site with Yola!

I would also look into customizing the banner image, as Lee suggested. For help with this see our text tutorial: http://www.yola.com/tutorials/persona...

yea, compared to other sites, yola is practically designed for beginners and advanced. If you have advanced knowledge, you can do some awesome things. When I first started, my first website practically looked like garbage lol.. now I think I'm doing a pretty good job. Plus there's a lot of other resources outside of yola to use within yola, if you ever need anything and can't find it in yola, I'm sure it probably exists somewhere somehow, ask the great helpers on here. Things like site search (I don't recommend google adsense site search - it doesn't work right, I use sitelevel.com - works great)... getclicky is my preference for analytics and keeping track of traffic and visitors - it's real time whereas google analytics only reports once a day and is inaccurate on my site (says I get 300 plus visitors a day - yea, I wish!), js-kit.com has some awesome features. Google webmasters can tend to speed up the process to be indexed, it'll tell you errors in your site (broken links, etc.) and these things can hinder your site's index plus with webmasters you can submit your sitemap instead of waiting for google to find it on its own which tends to speed up the indexing process. If you don't want a big headache, do not copy in from MS Word - I'm sure everyone agrees with that. When you get an image from another site, instead of copying and pasting, save it to your computer then upload it to your file manager. When you copy an image, you're also copying the destination, if the host of that image deletes it, it will also be deleted on your site. Google friend connect from what i hear is really good for communicating with your users and allowing them to communicate among each other. PayPal and Google Checkout are helpful resources for accepting credit cards for purchases. I recommend every user to use google adsense whether or not you're looking to make money (you might be like... I won't make that much with it so I won't even try)... I was watching on tv the other day, some girl decided to video tape her everyday living and post it on a website she created (knew nothing about creating or promoting a website) and accidentally came across google adsense and threw them on her website, and with 3,000,000 visitors a month (sounds unreal but that's what the tv said) she accidentally made a lot of money from google (they didn't reveal how much exactly) but got too much attention and didn't like all the press and everything so took her website down. It was created for the fun of it and accidentally got her rich. - although, I work like a workaholic on my site and am lucky to get $1.50 in one day!
