Google Webmaster Tools reports the following maladies concerning coding, which would seem to be in the purview of the Homestead Design Department:

I. Leverage Browser Caching:

Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network: For Example:

http://websites.intuit.com/~media/ele... (expiration not specified)

II. Eliminate Render-blocking Java Script and CSS in Above-the-Fold Content:

None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML: For Example:

http://www.aboriginalartsllc.com/~sit...

Hi Ronald, you have some very valid concerns. There can be issues with loading cached pages from the local disk for some stores if content changes frequently though. In either case, the Storefront software is actually developed by ProStores, so much of the code is blocked from us so we don't have the ability to make many changes.

Our ecommerce team is aware of many of the issues that make the Storefront unfriendly for the SE's, and Homestead is considering other options that will benefit our ecommerce customers. I don't have any definite details or date for release yet, but there's a good chance we will have an excellent solution for you in the coming weeks.

It is good to hear that upgrades to Homestead's ecommerce facilities are nearing the horizon.

Also, I would like to have your thoughts about another business challenge:

I would like to disassociate my personal and business web presences. In a word, I want to separate my name from my business name. For example, I do not want visitors to my www.aboriginalartsllc.com, (which is hosted by Intuit), to find their ways around to my primary Facebook account, (which bears my name), or my Google + profile, etc.

I have begun this pursuit of anonymity by adding a Google plus PAGE named Aboriginal Arts, LLC to my Google account, which is in my name. Similarly, I have a Facebook page named Aboriginal Arts, LLC. However, it seems to me that these pages in my business name link back to my primary Google and Facebook accounts, which are in my name. These linkages not only come from the pages themselves, but they also come from the blending of my business and personal information in search engine results.

Do you think it is possible for me to separate business and personal web presences without deleting personal accounts and starting over with only business accounts? What outline of steps would you suggest for disassociating my business and personal web presences.

You've been really helpful, and I know this question is not purely web site related. Please offer your suggestions on this subject.

Thanks, Ronald

That is a good question and it may be a bit difficult as a primary focus of the search engines is to harvest information. Once they have you associated in some matter it will be difficult to dis-associate.

If you happen to have any of your websites here at Homestead connected to any of your social accounts it's very easy for us to disconnect them. Just reply here if you do, and we can accomplish that very easy.

As far as having your information mixed at Google, Twitter, Facebook etc. It might be best to cancel, and then create completely new accounts that have not relationship with each-other. You may have to contact those companies individually to get inside advice.

If you disconnect my social accounts from my Homestead website, I suppose that will remove my Simple Store from Facebook. Assuming that I do not delete my Facebook business page, can you selectively disconnect my web site from social network accounts, such that my simple store yet resides on my Facebook business page, (while breaking other, undesired, connections between my social pages and my website)?

The connection from your site to Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn, can all be disconnected independently from each-other. This will have no effect on the social accounts so any links you have from them, directing visitors to your site will still exist. If you break the connection from your site to Facebook and the SimnpleStore, you can reconnect it to the same account or different account if you wish to.

Yes, please do disconnect my www.aboriginalartsllc.com from all of my social accounts. Thank you. Ronald

Done... as a final step, follow the steps in this thread and if you see the Intuit Website app, you'll want to remove it.
