Lesson 18. Putting Your Site Online


The catchphrase "If you build it, they will come," from the movie Field of Dreams notwithstanding, just uploading your site to a web server somewhere doesn't mean that you'll attract many visitors. In fact, with millions of sites online already, some of them with thousands of documents, you'll need to promote your site if you want to build an audience.
