  9. This is my code the corrected one its working fine locally:

    <asp:AdRotator ID="AdRotatorHeader" runat="server" KeywordFilter="Header"
    OnAdCreated="AdRotatorHeader_AdCreated" Target="_blank" DataSourceID="XmlDataSourceAd"/>
    <asp:Label ID="LabelHeaderScript" runat="server" Visible="False"></asp:Label>
    <asp:XmlDataSource ID="XmlDataSourceAd" runat="server"

    Code Behind:

    protected void AdRotatorHeader_AdCreated(object sender, AdCreatedEventArgs e)
    if (e.AdProperties["Category"].ToString() == "Script")
    LabelHeaderScript.Text = e.AdProperties["ImageUrl"].ToString();
    LabelHeaderScript.Visible = false;
    AdRotatorHeader.Visible = true;
    catch (Exception ex)
    string str = ex.Message;
    AdRotatorHeader.Visible = false;
  10. I think i had figure out the problem myself

    FTP Site was not uploading all my site contents so
    i decided to use FileZilla Client to delete all the folders on the root directory
    and uploaded all over again, went i test my URL via www.csproject-topics.com
    it opens perfectly well.

    Thank you all very much

    Remind Bless.

    Hi Cletus,

    In short, what you are looking to do is search engine optimization (SEO). Most-likely the search engines (like Google) already know your site is there and is already sending bots to your domain so they can index your site. I say this because Google specifically is ICANN accredited so they knew about your site once the domain was registered.

    So with that knowledge your next step is to optimize your pages for the terms you want to be found for in the search index. There are a lot of ways to do the optimization, so I would tell you to review some of the sites that cover how to do SEO and SEO news:


    These sites should be a good jumping off spot into how to SEO your site and pages for the terms you are really looking to rank for.

    Your only other option would be to actually do the paid search advertising (Google AdWords, Bing Ads). The search engine advertising model is a cost per click model so you only pay when someone clicks on your ad, and you tell the search engine the terms you wish to have your ads show up for. You set what you are willing to pay per click, but the more you are willing to pay per click the better chance you have at showing at the top of the 1st page as the #1 ad.

    I hope that helps some!
