It sometimes takes up to 2 weeks for our search listings to be
updated. Sites here are added manually after we look at your
site and evaluate the best description to use for your specified
keywords. OUR SEARCH BOX MUST BE ON YOUR WEBSITE BEFORE YOU WILL BE ADDED TO OUR LISTINGS. This manual evaluation and attention to details takes
time. We compile a list by categorys of sites submitted and
update the website on approximately the 15th and the 30th of the
month. Please place the search box right away after joining to avoid delays in being added to our directory. If we check your site and it is not there, you will not be rechecked until our next update time.
My category page is not showing up on any major search engines.
When we create a NEW category page (if your chosen keyword was
not already being featured on an existing listed page on our website) it will take up to 6 weeks to
be listed on the major search engines. This is due to THEIR
update schedule, not ours. Your category page WILL be listed
within our craftysearch.com results no longer than 2 weeks after
you add your site.
Can I pay with check or money order?
At this time we only accept payment through www.PayPal.com
. This is a secure way to make your payment to us online.
Can I change my description on the category page?
No. Because of the number of sites signing up that are being
indexed daily we can not offer this service. The description you
see is based on your main keywords you specified when joining
and is made to also help the page stay consistent in key word
rich content which helps our pages rank high in the major search
engines. If your site content has changed and the keywords you
signed up with no longer apply, you need to REJOIN and purchase
a new listing with new keywords.
Can I specify more than 4 keyword terms?
No, each site addition is allowed up to 4 keyword terms (single
words or short phrases) and placed on category pages
accordingly. If you need to be listed for more than 4 keyword
terms you are free to purchase a second membership with the new
keywords at the regular submission price.
When will my banner ad start showing?
Banner ads are switched out for the month on approximately the
10th of the month. If your category had an open spot your ad
banner will be added at that time. If your category page of
choice does NOT have a spot available we will contact you for a
second choice OR you are free to wait until the next spot on
that page does open up, it is up to you.
