1) If you want to have your family tree online I highly suggest you keep your working file on your computer and then upload a gedcom to the website where you want your tree to be instead of doing all of your research online. Why? A resident genealogy program has a gazillion more options, tools, searching capabilities, error checking, reports, charts etc. than any online program will ever have.
2) Periodically take down the old gedcom and upload a new one as you update your file. What you don’t want is several different versions of the same tree on the same website or even on different websites. If I do a search on Ancestry.com’s public member trees for Mortimer Snerd and I get 20 hits but 18 of them are from trees submitted by the same person it is a little frustrating.
