Hi Paul,

Okay, well, I'm going to list a few things to help you out on your site, but they are not why your site is not listed. Getting your site listed can be as simple as writing and article, submit to EzineArticles.com and make sure you include an anchor text link in your author info bi-line.

Getting Google to notice you is fastest if you have someone else tell them about your site - as mentioned above. Your link simply needs to be posted where Google's spider will find it.

Regarding your site, I would recommend:

1. Add a privacy, about us, contact pages.
2. Create a redirect link for your clickbank affiliate link. I use a simple html redirect. Just look up "html redirect code" in google and you'll find the code.
3. Only use super large fonts for "buy, visit, click here" and the main headlines, subject headings etc...
4. It looks like you have a "free" hosting account. If you can't afford hosting now, I would highly recommend you write articles, submit to article directories, use redirect affiliate links and get yourself the income so you can afford hosting. I believe Hostgator has a super low hosting plan of $4.50 ? You can always increase the plan to the $7.50 when you want more than one site. I forget the actual prices. I do host with them but I have a resellers account.

OR... it just looks like you are hosting for free due to the ads on the top. If this is the case, can the banner ads on the top. When you want to sell a clickbank product, do not include any Adsense type ads. When you want to get adsense clicks, put the ads on pages that are not focused on selling a clickbank product.

I'd much rather earn $25.00 from someones interest in my product than .50 cents for them to go learn more about the product I'm selling on someone elses site.

Hope that helps, :)

Thanks Chrisi

Some good stuff for me to get on with

The hosting came with the free web builder i got with my domain not knowing it would include adds that im not getting paid for so i purchased a hosting package unfortunitley,the adds come with the free website builder not the hosting so i would have to upgrade to the paid version to remove the adds what do you think?
This site has been a mistake learning exercise really its my first one but im in too minds if to promote it fully as the commission is 50% of $20 would my efforts be better focused on a bigger profit with recuring comission? Or should i carry on to learn as much as i can with this site?

Regarding the redirects links where do i put them?

Once again Chrisi, many thanks your advice is well appreciated

How much do you have invested in this webbuilder program? Is it possible to get a refund? You could approach the owners/business and let them know you didn't realize what it involved. Many times you can get a refund if you explain your situation.

If it were me I would get a very cheap hosting account, one with fantastico in the cpannel so you can easily create a wordpress blog, move your single page of information onto your new blog, redirect your aff link, and sort of move forward from there.

The one reason I suggest hostgator along with others is they have really good support. When I got my reseller account it was really different than what I had been used to and they totally walked me through the transformation. They are pretty awesome at Hostgator.

Paul, it takes time for Google to find your Website on new freshly created domains. like chrisi said you will need to get some links from high authority domains for it to be indexed. Ezinearticles is a good choice, also you could get a few links from social bookmark sites such as diigo, delicious and faves

To find out when you are indexed just enter the following into google search every few days:

site:http://www.creativeflowerarrangements.com/

Start your promotions and Google will start paying attention to your Website.

thanks guys

the web building program was free so i dont have any money invested into it but i could upgrade to a purchased copy that will remove the adds its godaddys own web builder program that came free when i purchased my domain name

Is it difficult to move my site to a word press blog? would my domain name follow me and what would happen to my old site?

Im buiding links to social network sites and submitting to Ezinearticles so hopefully that will help with google...one more thing guys on google my page looks like i published it but with mozilla some of the text is blue and too big ! Any advice how to put it right?

appologies if these issues seem obvious guys its a steep learning curve

cheers
