1. Your Name, that's your real name if you want it to be there, or your site name, whatever you prefer

2. Whenever the sitemap is changed, not when you make minor updates

3. You mean visitor counters? make a Google search based on "script". There are lots on the net
4. sitemap.xml usually there is also a sitemap.html page for your visitors to see.
5. Exactly

My 2 cents are free!

1) no sure why you are entering copyright meta not needed. But if you insist copyright(c)yourdomain.com

2) Do not submit everytime you update your site even if you change your sitemap! This is very important.

3) What kind of stats counter would you like? I use the invisible version planted on the bottom of the page visit ww.statscounter.com just add another w didn't want to leave a full link. You can put and customize this stats counter for each page. Stats are updated in real time and yes its free!

4) There are several ways of creating a site map. I use the xml one for now until my site is finished. Create the xml use the ftp upload it to the root directory. Name the sitemap.xml
the url ww.yourdomain.com/sitemap.xml

I hope this helps. pet121

Create a new site map if you create a new page. Its not crucial to rush and go do it right away, but get it done at some point. pet121

If you create a new url but if your just adding content to a already existing page the xml does not have to be updated.

okay...i used the meta generator on a site recommended on here. It came up with this as opposed to what is shown above. Do I use this or whats above, which is better, and if I use the below, am I not just repeating the meta keywords that vodahost already puts in? Hope this makes sense.

Cut these metatags and paste them between your HEAD tags.

<meta name="Keywords" content="private investigator fort worth, texas, dallas, DPS, licensed investigators, Tarrant County, Parker County, Dallas County, investigater, www.erinvestigatio">
<meta name="Description" content="Private Investigators in Fort Worth Texas serving the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex and Weatherford Texas areas.">
<meta name="Robots" content="index, follow">
<meta name="Revisit-After" content="7 Days">
