    ...look at the source code on your robot.txt file. *Needs work.

    http://www.charlottecountylawns.com/robot.txt

    On your home page you should add the following in the meta tag or head area.

    meta name="robots" content="index, follow">
    meta name="revisit-after" content="15 days">

    This will direct bots and crawlers to index your site and follow all links. *Additionally the bot will revisit the site every 30 days in the event content is changed and to keep it fresh.
    Add a left pointing arrow before the meta command. I'm having a hard time getting this chat software to display the entire code.

      I'd also suggest getting a free tracker from these folks to view who is visiting your site and how they are finding it.

        That url comes up blank?
        I don't have anything on my page or in my files named robot.txt?

        I appreciate the advise but what are you talking about here?

          it just looks blank. Go to the page, click the browser menu "View", click on "Source" and you should get a notepad open up with the source code.

            In your case, you don't want to exclude any files or pages.

              stealthdumptrucks, have you ever used google analytics? If yes how would you compare it to extreme tracking? I have never used extreme tracking so I was just wondering if maybe it's better or not?

                Chuck,

                I loaded up your robot.txt page and then used my browser to View - Page Source.

                This is what it has.

                  I use extremetracking.com because it&#39;s simple and easy to add. I haven&#39;t gone deep enough into the google offering to know if it&#39;s better. I don&#39;t think I need it for my site anyway.

                    I am checking that site out.

                    I wonder how it compares to report tools some may have access through their servers?

                      It&#39;s easier to use than logging into the server. *One or two clicks and you&#39;re into what you want to see. *From there go anywhere without touching the keyboard.

                      I have to mention though that logging into the server will show you the files requested. That&#39;s how I discovered the search engines were looking for my robot.txt and robots.txt files. I&#39;m also getting pinged for favicon.ico which I&#39;ve yet to develop.

                        The icon image is another little add-on that I think many websites miss as well. I don&#39;t know what it really offers the reader except for seeing a small icon in their browser. But it is good to point out how to make it.
