Just noticed something else. When you enter the place of birth, it will be easier for people searching if you put both the town and county. For cities, use the district and then the city, i.e. Bethnal Green, London (or Bethnal Green, Middlesex). Anyone looking for 'Martin' in Bethnal Green will not have time to look through every Martin in London, especially when the site fills up and there are thousands of entries!
