To add to Chris' comments, remember that there are websites that archive pages. Archive.org is one of them. If you want to see a site's contents from three years ago, they just might have it. Google also caches pages, but for a limited period. Deleting your entire website would not make it inaccesible to someone who is curious and resourceful. (I notice that SOG seems to have a way to override this. They have cached pages on archive.org, but the site blocks them. Cynthia has a good webmaster).

Here's what Yahoo looked like ten years ago... http://web.archive.org/web/199610172...ww2.yahoo.com/

Sometimes I regret things I've posted on the web, and I especially regret that I can't delete it.

Jeff, I'll sit down and try to follow your suggestions, thank you very much for taking the time to explain.

I have recently changed my website so that I could work on it from my apple laptop, and I have to figure up how to do it.

Ilaria, I see that you eliminated your url from your signature. That's not what I meant. You need to link your name to your site. Look at my post again. I didn't just type your name, I linked it to your website. This is how Google associates your name with your site.

Here's the code...

BTW: Be sure to verify your links. I just noticed that one of the senior members here on SOG has a bad link on her SOG signature. Don't just put your link on a page, confirm that it really works.

Thank you Jeff!
I have one more question for you: I changed the name of my homepage as you suggested, but the browser would not accept file names that contain spaces.
I am very grateful for your help!

Shoot - I've been meaning to tell her that for a while. Sharon K - it's you. Check your link.

Your site seems to forward to a subdirectory in your server. You need to edit the title tag of the page that it lands on (/ilaria_rosselli_del_turco/home.html)

Warning: If you don't know how to edit html, see if you have a friend or family member who knows how to do it. You can make a mess of things pretty easily. Absolutely don't do anything until you create a full backup of all your files. Don't work from the backup files. Keep them separate in case you need to restore them.

On your main page, the title tag has not been changed. It still is <title>Home</title>. Just replace the word Home with the title of your choice. If you edit your files on your computer, be sure to save and upload them, using the same file names and addresses as the original. If you can edit them online, be sure the files are writable first. When you finish editing, make them un-writable again, to protect them from hackers.

Looking at your page sources, it seems you used a web authoring program of some kind. It's likely that you can change the settings in the software so that it autoamatically enters your chosen title in all of the pages.

Another inexpensive idea -- buy a domain name that people might be inclined to use while looking for you. I checked, and ilariarossellidelturco.com is available. ilariarossellidelturco.org has been taken. If you're the owner, you should use it. I'd suggest spending the $8.50 per year to get the name that people naturally assume you'd have. (JeffFuchs.com is already taken... drat!).

You can buy a domain name cheap, forward it to your established domain name, without moving your site. You'll have two domain names, but you'll be taking advantage of people's natural tendency to add "dot com" to your name to find your site.

Jeff, thanks again, I might go for that domain.
Who on earth could have bought the .org I do not know.
When I bought my domain I thought the shortter the better.
Such a long surname, a first name that nobody understands outside Italy (Alana? Alariah?)...it's one of the reasons for which I married someone called Lais.

About the html instead it's going to be hard, since I am the internet pioneer among my friends!
I really appreciate your help
Ilaria

When you say SOG, I assume you mean SOG Forum? They are not one and the same. SOG refers to the main site only.
