Submitted site to Google Search Engine so they would know we're here - they send out their army of spider robots to crawl My Kids Art website and then come back occasionally to see if there's any new stuff. Did the same with Yahoo Search and MSN.
It's very hard to get good search ranking - there is a huge amount of sites out there!

My Parents Art - one parent so far - Belinda from Children's Creative Art Class - I'm not sure if many parents will send in their own art as well as their children's. Hopefully they might - I think it would be great to see Child and Parent art together! MKA

                        The invisible website statistic counter shows that there have been over 50 unique visitors to this site in the 3 weeks it has been live - a milestone! Celebrations! We shall probably make the counter visible if, and once, there are over 1,000 unique visitors.
