How's the website, Billy?  :lurker:

  We have gotten some biz off it but not made my retirement nut off of it. As expected it will take a couple years for word to get around. It'll get there. Otherwise, it functions well. It seems to stay the same stable software. One of the many things I hate about ebay is every 6 monthe they screw with the seller side of the GUI. Last one was about 3 months ago and I am still uncomfortable with it. I have better things to do than learn some new IT guys wet dream. Like switching from Win7 to Win 8.  :wal:

Billy - You need a Testimonials page

Also, a search on Google doesn't pull up anything except your facebook. Whoever did the page for you needs to add in better meta tags.

If you can register the business on Google, that would help as well. Then we can go give some positive reviews on there as well. If not, at least take at a look at this page and register your site with Google: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/6259634?hl=en

  Secrets? I have naked pics of Mrs Trump and the pool boy.

  We are switching hosting on the website. We have been riding on our webmaster page, backend thing which I do not understand but ultimately it did not work as advertised. So maybe some turmoil or even a temp site outage while the switch-over kinks get ironed out. Should show up as HTTPS which is SSL security which has been mentioned here and has bothered us. We now own v4market so we will see what we can do with that. This website stuff is harder than Chinese Algebra.

  I'll probably offend my Chinese customer base but Speaking of Chinese...

When I click on the saved link or google your website I get a warning that I am entering an unsafe area and am encouraged to go back to safety.

Is this a result of the change to a different host?

If so please provide a new link.

As I understand it all web sites will be moving to HTTPS for security purposes.  Otherwise Google and other ventures will not list you or even allow searches??

Learning the WordPress web site interface at present.  Like pushing a rope... 

Sometimes you can download a certificate to make that web site safe on your computer??

I just googled Billy's Out Back on Firefox.  Went right to it, no warnings.  BOB has a list look to it.  Not much GUI there, the Honda picture is still there though...

I tried Waterfox the other day, works pretty well for the U of KY sites I have to use...

  That ain't real bueno. That is costing us biz if others are getting that. You are the 1st I have heard of but then most don't hunt me down to notify, they just X out of the site and go elsewhere.
  We are $$$ into HostGator for the new site but still stuck on the old host as gator has not updated to the v. 2.xxx of our esite software. So we can't switch. Was hoing to cancel/refund HG and try a different host but our webguy says he is working it out. I keep hearing soon but we have not made the move. This whole website thing sucks if you aren't a super geek.

It might be a week or two in my experience.  For a business sector that is supposed to be so all fire fast, the service can be governmental...

PS - glad to see you are looking at bringing the V4 Market back - even if is on the BOB site.

Just checked and I can reach the site through Edge.

I usually use Chrome on my work computer but Edge is still there.

Fark! I'll get Dana on it. Thanks for the heads up.

For those who are getting a warning please let me know what browser and any antivirus/ malware progs/add ons you run. We are not seeing it from home with Chrome or Waterfox/Mozilla.

  Yeah, sales from the website have dropped to zero. I hate it and don't know how to fix it. Our web guy keeps saying all is well. Obviously it ain't.  :bash:

You could probably drop the website and promote yourself better on the "other site". Your name comes up all the time....that is a busy place in  comparison. KISS.. :blink:

Currently running Windows 10 Edu.  I open the website on Waterfox - works just fine.

When I open it on Firefox there is a code list that seems to work.  Not the GUI style look though.

Opened the web site on Chrome - looks fine, what I clicked on worked.

Have your web guy clear his Firefox browser cache. 

I cleared mine, now I have to find my log ins and passwords again...   :dunno:
