Yeah I dont know about learning HTML for this, I think I just need to either find a template that works the best I can, or I now have XARA WEBSITE BUILDER, its way more complex then a template, but might give that a try. Still dont see how I can get my site to be in search without paying.
Submit your site to search engines and make sure you have good meta data, thats all you need really. if you keep it clean and people are interested your site will move it's way up in no time. You will get listed anyway at some point a bot will find you and crawl your site.
