Question

Whenever I try to add something to my small business website it doesn't appear after I save it.?

I have edited my website several times but this is the first time this happens. I added a link and when I click on view website it shows but when I try to access my site normally it won't show anything new. Does anyone know what the problem is? Thanks.

Hi, Ed.

What you describe is usually caused by browser caching. See, when you visit a website, your web browser saves a copy of the page in its cache. The next time you visit the website, your browser will load the cached page--this is because reading the cached page from your hard drive is faster than downloading it from the internet again.

The trouble here is that your browser might be loading the old cached page, and is therefore not getting the latest version of the page available on the internet. You can force your web browser to load the latest version of the page by pressing the Ctrl and F5 keys on your keyboard (on a PC) or holding the Shift key while clicking the Reload button (on a Mac).

If this doesn't help, or you have any other questions, you can visit smallbusiness.yahoo.com/contactus/ for 24/7 assistance.
