Whoa! OK; now I'm confused again. Being a novice at this; I
noticed that my design program (Sierra Web Studio)automatically
lists the file name afetr the "/" in my address instead of
"index.html" So then; Take for instance my address:
www.paintedparadise.com/ . I had to use a java script forwarding
command so that I could keep my address shorter (because Alta
Vista doesn't allow and html forwarding command) So my long
address is www.paintedparadise.com/Surf_Art_Site/index.html-
........ Whew! Now; my question is; "Should I name the website
file "index.html", and then title my opening page "Page_1" or
something like that? This would really make my day if I could
lose the file name path as my forwarding page doesn't contain any
text; thus lousy search engine rankings. Thanks guys!
