Web sites not showing up on search engines under keywords after submitting to all search engines for months now, still nowhere to be found. Is it because I'm using homestead, please check.my sites, need to sell

How are you submitting your keywords? The only real way to get keywords in search engines is to have those keywords in the natural content of the site. Your sites do not have a large amount of content to pick keywords from. What keywords are you trying to use, and which domain are you concentrating on right now?

shophubcaps.com has plenty of keywords in the box you provide under properties on the index page and on the home page.

I've been on homestead for over 15 years and never had a problem being on the first couple pages on the search engine under my keywords but over the last couple years I've been disappearing little by little no matter how many times I submit, what changed because my websites haven't.

So, those keywords are no longer considered by search engines. They haven't been for several years. Search engines now decide what keywords are used from the content on your website pages. You might want to pick your favorite keywords to get started. Search them and see how many results there are. Competition for keywords can be very strong. Look at some of the sites that show up on the first and second page and see what kind of content is available. At the minimum, I would build a new site site with our new online builder, to get a more modern look going.

Most of the sites I looked at that were in the same business were integrated ecommerce sites as well, offering the sales from the site directly.

I tried to use your new building site but my system is 15 years old so it will not open the page to start that's why I used the old system. i will do that when I get a new system set up. Thanks for the info.
