If you added a logo to your Directory Home Page (in the SiteAdvertisingProfile screen on our system), then you had to specify a location on your web site where your logo resides such as www.yourwebsite.com/images/CorpLogo1.jpg.

If your web designer changed your logo to a new logo image name file of CorpLogo2.jpg, then you need to go into our system and change the logo image location to www.yourwebsite.com/images/CorpLogo2.jpg in our SiteAdvertisingProfile screen since the name file: www.yourwebsite.com/images/CorpLogo1.jpg, is no longer applicable.
