    I have mentioned this before, but you should do more than just meta tags. Most search engines today do not use meta tags (google being most important). I would still add them for the few engines that do use them. Google uses Page Rank for it's results. When they spider your site, they look at all the links, incoming, outgoing, and internal. They then rate your site using info gained from the links as well as content. It is important to keep adding new content to your site to keep your current standing or improve. Some people have had sites ranked 6 or 7, but never added any new co
  2. You may also consider adding a recommend box where visitors can send the site to a friend to look at. This usually is only effective on sites that have a loyal following. Being extremely specific in your content is best if you use one...that way people who come to your site for it's content can start to spread it around the applicable community.
  3. I use coffeecup. You can try the trial for free to see if it works for you. I would recommend getting the paid version if you like the trial. Not too expensive.
  4. I must say there are many webmasters who feel it is worth it and make great money from it. There are many providers such as TribalFusion, FastClick, and many others that are legit and have decent payout terms. You should do your homework before choosing and ask yourself the following questions: Do I have enough visitors to support the effort? If your site is low traffic, banner ads are useless as it would take you a good deal of time to just hit the threshold for payment (usually between $20/$50). Most ad networks have a minimum traffic guideline that you must meet prior to joining...
  5. Could very well be. On an account I have elsewhere, it uses ths shared SSL and I get the warning every time I log in...even though I added the certificate.
  6. Well, perldesk is included in a reseller account I have outside TCH. That is why I suggested it. Plus TCH uses perl desk for their help desk so they have knowledge of the script.
  7. I am not TCH support either... You can use file manager in the CPanel in lieu of a FTP client (although much less user friendly). Like I said in the other thread, if this is your first attempt at webmaster, I would wait till the domain propgates to minimize any confusion. People won't be able to view your website anyway until the domain resolves (unless you give them the IP)
  8. If you have received your account set up complete email, it contains all the info you will need. You can go to the IP instead of the actual domain name until your domain resolves. That IP is included in the email. You will be able to use FTP or file manager. I do recommend, however, that if this is your first website/hosting package, you wait until the domain resolves before uploading. Using an IP when you are not used to them can be confusing. Much easier to use www,****** instead of 64.191.**.*** (IP for reference only, this is not part of your specific IP)
  9. Hey all, I was wondering if you had plans to upgrade (or rather add) features and themes to CPanel? I would really like to see the Vertex theme added. I find it to be the easiest one to use (and I probably have 5 different themes on various sites). I was also wondering if you had looked into adding the perldesk script? I find that very helpfull for resellers. Just my 2 cents....I know business dictates over wants.
  10. I understand your interest in discussing this topic, however it can become heated very quickly. I don't think we should be asking if war is right, rather doing everything we can to support those who are fighting for us. The decision has been made, and we cannot change that. Now is the time to come together to show support, not argue about it. Throughout our nations history, we have been involved in many bad situations. We have always pulled through. I predict we will continue to do the same. God Bless America!
  11. I have seen this issue with GoDaddy (Owner of Wild West) quite a bit lately, however the issue is not theirs. For your domain to propogate, it has to be fed into all the (I will call them Leader for simplicity)Leader comps. As you surf the net, your connections often take different routes, especially if you have disconnected from the network. As your domain is travelling, some will receive it sooner than others. Thereby creating the issue of here now, gone five minutes later. Give a full 24 hours (sometimes longer) and you should not experience this.
  12. I used to delete cookies (which would be one symptom) regularly but found that I hated trying to find all the passwords I didn't remember because they were "cookied" for the past month. Never delete anymore! I, however, have never had to log in here aside from the initial time. Your computer may also be programed to dump cookies automatically after a set time. I know XP has a default (I use XP) but don't remember what it was set at. Also, I have recently had issues with Norton Firewall playing havoc with somethings like spam filtering and privacy settings. It wouldn't let me vi
  13. Ditto...although I do have one thing I must say... To the news and military people...STOP Telling What We Plan to Do! Sorry, but had to vent that. My prayers are with our military, their families, and the Iraqi people.
  14. I'll try not to write a book this time (although I usually end up doing so anyway). I will address the google issue first. Google has you with a current PR of 4. Has this been higher previously to your knowledge? One issue could possibly be your frames. Google has been acting very strange lately in it's spidering of framed sites. Many sites have seen their PR drop from 6 to 4 (or similar) with no navigational changes being made, but content updates were made. I wish I could explain what it is doing, but I am still trying to figure it out as one of my sites uses frames as well. Also
  15. I have also experienced this phenomenon (if you would call it that) recently. It was weird because with all my past domain changes, once they were working, they stayed. The last two domains I have changed have bounced a few times to the old version. I guess as the net keeps getting bigger with more addresses the more difficult it will be to ensure everyone is pointing exactly the same.
