I got bamboozled! I ought to write a book about it. It`s embarrassing to get this kind of response...guess I must have pressed a few buttons, but here goes: Thanks, everyone,(Alaskabear, Minimegeology, Houseofjerkyjanie
). Thank you shoppers, everybody, who really
told me what I need to know. IA told me that they
would submit my site to Google and "hundreds of other search engines", but I have since found out that was not the truth. I submitted to Google myself and the bots ought to be around now. I also submitted to MSN, but not to Yahoo because of my current horribly adverse circumstances (phone temporarily discontinued, several shut-off notices in the mail...). Thanks, neighbors-even to DaleKing- for attending my failure moment. Hey! Failure is an event, never a person.
I`m still hurting, but it`s part of the extremely steep learning curve I have had to endure. I had doubts before and some regret now about becoming an internet commerce entrepreneur with no prior experience and no money, but I have tried Mary Kay, Princess House, and Amway, with no success. I`m still trying to understand what C++ is, or what an "anchor" is. I can`t write HML. Taught myself computer use. (I`m an educator. Learning is my business) Yeah, for many reasons, the site sucks.
My family took out a loan to buy the sites, so I am locked in, but I will revamp http://www.thebabyclothesisle.com
as soon as I can bear to look at it again, as much as possible within the framework--knock out the useless calendar. Good one! Learn how to put product descriptions where they go! (Yeah, Stores On Line is that "lunch lure" company. I thought it was the best, most cost effective way for a person who wanted to start up to go. I`m a bit disappointed at how it turned out.) As for the relationship with IA, the SEO company I just got rid of, I went with them because they had good salesmen and they did not seem to be so condescending and impatient when I asked so many babyish-newbie-ignorant questions...after all I knew not too much more than how to turn the computer on let alone research anything (Google? what`s that?) when I began. I couldn`t understand half the technobabble they were saying, but they sounded knowledgeable. I know better, now. Snares, pipes, please! (I love the great highland pipes. I think they`re sexy) And the going price of wisdom is...
Once again, neighbors, before I just walk away from it all for awhile, thanks much...and another thing...truth told outside of love is an act of war. Remember the purpose of this site. Honor each other as artists. Promote excellence.
