The Attached photo or .JPG is a conversation I had with another member of I have tried to share two of my websites with him using various different steps of including the www or leaving off the http:// and he continues to state that he is unable to load either of my website pages.

Also it has been several days for one of my websites and generally by now my site would appear on the search engines.  Nothing is showing for either as of yet.  My friend is not the only one to report of not being able to load my website, but yet I seem to be able to load them just fine.

Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

Hello Kelly,

I was able to successfully pull up your sites in Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Edge. If people are having difficulty opening your sites, we would need more information about the issue. How are people going to your sites, what browser are they using, what error are they seeing? Since we can't replicate the issue in any browser I try, I have no way of troubleshooting this until we get more information.

In regard to your site not indexing in Google, that takes time. It's been 1-2 weeks since you first published either site. Google can take up to a month to even crawl your site. If you would like to speed this process up, I suggest you use tools like Google Search Console to request Google crawl your site and see any issues with indexing. You'll find plenty of information on how to use that tool on Google.

Hi Kelly:
When it comes to search engines, it can take several weeks and even months for your website to be listed. If you can imaging the millions of websites that the search engine robots scan for new website information, then you can understand why it takes so long. In my case, I had a website that took three months to appear on Google, so don't be alarmed it takes a little time.
