    This is worth the read ~ Who Knew? :eek:

    Hi everyone - this is a very interesting problem and I want to make sure you are aware of the potential down fall it might present for you and your web site and how your customers will find you and your site!

    If you are copying (and it is certainly legal, expected, and more than fine to do) anything from someone and you are changing the information and the web site hyper link address to your own - PLEASE - be aware that when you change the last part after www.pamperedchef.biz/__________ to show your site - it does not change the connect - it just changes the way it reads and not where you will have your customers connect to - it still goes to the original person and not you - even though it will read your name and site.

    I think the only way you can guarantee it will be linked to your website is to completely delete the entire www.pamperedchef.biz/__________and redo yours including right clicking on and typing in the your own email or web site link.

    If this does not make since - email me and I will walk you thru it - I only found out it was a problem when I sent you an email - changed the web site name to mine and thought it was a done deal - after I sent it out for fun I clicked to see what my web page looked like and SHOCK . . . I was connected to hers! Not a great way to build my business! You may have already known this - and if so great! Technology is a wonderful thing but not always what appears to be!

    Keri--I have no idea what you are talking about. I'm going to have to have my husband read your post to help me decipher the issue. I'm a little pc iliterate.

    thanks Keri. I have never emailed anything, but do occasionally delete and add my web address to documents that I save to my computer and later print for show use. I am glad someone figured that out.

    This only applies to things that you are e-mailing or other-wise shooting through hyper-space. It does not apply to flyers that you print out.

    The issue is that when you create a "hot spot" for e-mail, web sites, etc. The hot spot has an actual coded URL (Uniform Resource Locator/World Wide Web address on the Internet), you can name that hotspot anything you want, changing it to your personal PC web name is fine, but the hot spot code did not change. The best way is not to simply type over that portion of the web address (URL), but to recreate the hotspot. Again, this only applies to on-line stuff not printed material.

    Hope that didn't add to the confusion.

    I didn't think we could link our website to anything. I thought we could only have it in our signature line and promote it on business materials related to PC.

    PLEASE correct me if I am wrong here. Or maybe I just misunderstood the whole thing. (very likely today) :D
