mistakenly equated to the Internet, the Web's shortcomings as a commerce medium have

Everyone this is real, when a new business buys a url, hosting, web design, pays for search submissions, he prints business cards, sends out catalogs for his clients with web site address and hands out to his customers and prospects.

It take a long time to get listed at a big expense. The listings posted are only by a few search engines so guess what? After a year of trying to promote his site, most search engines can't find his business even with correct web site address given to everyone. So ecommerce business And clients are discouraged with internet, can't find even a web site address when they got one?

So only solution is to find the search engine that can find your site address given and promote that search engine and your web site. "Search Engines" on internet better get together so all have a way to direct to a site when correct url is entered or they as a search engine will be lost. Let's work together to make e-commerce and internet more appealing to all new web site owners.
