  • My pop under page is not showing. OR... My pop under page is popping over instead of under the home page.

    The pop-under page is subject to individual browser behavior, as well as individual visitor's browser settings. Also, if you access the site and the pop-under is shown, it will not be shown again for at least 24 hours. This is to prevent any annoyance for repeat visitors.

    When the page is shown, it may pop up, instead of under, for some visitors. This is due to individual browser behavior and how they handle pop-up/under pages.

    Please note that while we still offer the option for a pop-under page, most visitors today have some sort of pop-up blocker on and will likely not ever see the pop-under page at all.

    You may even have a pop-up blocker on that you are not aware of. Add-on toolbars often have pop-up blockers that are activated by default when they are installed.

    You can test this by holding down the Ctrl key on your keyboard while clicking a link to your site. This temporarily disables the pop-up blocker to allow the current pop-up.

  • How do I access Name Park It!? I don't have access to Site Central yet.

    If you have not registered your domain name and built your home page, and do not have access to Site Central yet, you can access Name Park It! (NPI!) by joining the SiteSell Affiliate Program (if you haven't already).

    Step 1) Go to...

    http://login.sitesell.com

    Enter your current SBI! username and password and click on the LOGIN Affiliate Club button. If you have not already joined the SiteSell Affiliate Program, you will be prompted to do so now.

    Don't worry, this does not mean that you must promote SiteSell products, but it will gain access to Name Park It! for now. You may choose to promote SiteSell products at a later date and you'll be all set up to do so!

    Step 2)

    Once you've joined the Affiliate Program, return to the Affiliate Program Home page and select the "Domain Parking" link at the bottom of the page (You'll find it under the Affiliate Program Home > Promo Tools section).

    Once you've purchased your NPI! subscription, return to Name Park It! to register your domain name.

    If you prefer not to be an affiliate, contact Support and we will be happy to assist you...

  • Why do I have not enough or too many matches in Value Exchange?

    The Value Exchange database is filled with thousands of sites, both SBI! sites and non-SBI! sites.

    If you have just started using Value Exchange or recently modified your data, please note that it may take up to one week for Value Exchange to find matches for your site.

    If Value Exchange returns too many or not enough matches, you can improve your selection by using the "Change Data" function to modify the keywords that describe your site and attract matches.

    Depending on your goal, you have two options...

    Niche Down: Use keywords that are less broad than the ones you are currently using. For example, instead of using "dogs" as a keyword, use "doberman pinscher" to get more refined matches and fewer matches that do not apply directly to your site's theme.

    Niche Up: Use keywords that are broader than the ones you are currently using. For example, instead of using "basic corporate tax return filing online," use "corporate tax return." When broadening your niche, make sure not to make your keywords too general (ex. "taxes") as this may result in too many irrelevant matches.

    With either approach, remember to make use of the help page...

  • Does Ken do consultations?

    Ken is very busy working on upcoming SBI! features/modules. He is constantly in meetings, closely monitoring development and deadlines.

    Ken would love to give you good, solid advice about your site but it's simply impossible right now. He must focus on bringing the most good to the most people.

    We hate to dampen your enthusiasm due to our inability to provide in-depth analysis. It takes a lot of time to really do a great job at suggesting improvements. Unfortunately, we just do not have that kind of time.
