Random Free Hosting Site

We'd like to congratulate The Glen Hotel  for being the winner of this month's free hosting site. At the beginning of each month we will call up our own site's homepage. Whomever's site is the featured site when the page loads will get FREE hosting of one domain for one month. It's just our way of saying thank you.

'Tis the Season - Sitemap Missing

Our clients are beginning to receive e-mails like the one we show below. Don't be fooled...HUEY Productions has ALWAYS added a sitemap to each site we create. To check if your site has a sitemap, just type in www.yourdomainname.com/sitemap.xml (replacing "yourdomainname.com" with your actual domain name. If you see a page written in Extended Markup Language (webmeister geek language) then you have a sitemap.

As I was on http://www.noseartjacket.com this morning, I was unable to locate a "Google Sitemap file" on your website.

I am not referring to a regular "site map" for people to visit online, but rather to a script which helps Google to read and index your website's overall content. I advise you to visit us online where we explain clearly what a "Google Sitemap file" is and what you need to do to get one: http://www.zoptimization.com/sitemap

A Sitemap file is a "code" placed in the root directory of your website which captures all the crucial information about your website, thus facilitating the crawling and indexing process for Google.

Give Google easier access to your site: Get a Google Sitemap file!

We offer a full turnkey service, including Google and Yahoo Sitemap files creation + registration. Visit us online for more details.

Blog About Your Business

UserInstinct is a relatively new blogging site organized by state and town. Sign-up is free and you'll be able to post a comment about your own business. Besides getting the name of your business "out there" it presents a good opportunity to post a link to your site. Remember, each page on the Internet that links INTO your site will help elevate your site's Link Popularity which will (in turn) elevate your site's ranking on Google and Yahoo!.

Credit Card Expiration Date

We've updated everyone's site that take credit cards (e-commerce, gift certificates, etc.) by deleting credit card expiration dates prior to 2009. If your site has a page that takes credit card expiration information, check it to make sure we haven't overlooked your site. Just send us an e-mail if you find 2008 expiration still on your site and we'll get it updated to 2009.
