Craig to the rescue again! I am in bed with flu and been looking at my website and as you always have good advice I am asking you again!
My web providers are changing into other fields and advise me to get someone else to host my site and allow me to add my pictures etc.In the past they have done that for me but i would like to be able to change type and my pictures myself.
I am not sure where to move my site to as there are so many people out there and obviuosly I don't want to have to incurr a lot of expense.
The other thing I need to do is optimize my site as it is my own name and because of thet I really on my google ads to get me somewher e on the page when anyone looks up garden design. I have used there keyword tool but i think I need to do m ore to my own site to get it more noticed.
Your help and advice has always been good but i am afraid I am so bad with computers!
