There should indeed be an icon for Notes when you login to icloud.com.
On the iPad, open the Settings app and make sure you have iCloud set to synch Notes in Mail, and that under Notes it is set as the default account.
To test, open, modify and save a note, then check.
BTW: there is a difference between adding Notes to an iCloud backup and synching it with icloud. I would assume you want to do both.

James, thank you very much. I did not understand that there was a difference between backup and synching and I believe that I do want both. I did as you suggested but i am a novice and I think I need some additional guidance, if you don't mind.
When I go to settings/icloud I DO have notes turned "on".
I'm not sure how to set icloud to " synch Notes in Mail." When I go to settings/mail,contacts,calendars/accounts, I have two options - icloud, or a comcast mail acct (my default). When I choose the icloud option, I am provided the same list of icloud application settings which are all set to "on". How to I synch?
what am I missing?
thanks for your patience

In a browser (and unfortunately Safari on iOS - your iPad won't work) go to www.icloud.com and login in using your appleID. You should see an icon for Notes (yellow pad like you have on the iPad). Click on that and any notes you have on the iPad should appear there.
When you are in Notes on the iPad creating a note, tap the Account button (upper left) and select iCloud to store the note in iCloud (if you are using additional account, such as Gmail, it will show up as well). A note, for syncing purposes, can only be synched to one account. If youare in the All Notes view adn create a note, it should store it in whichever youhave selected as the default (Settings app > Notes > Default Account). Sounds like Comcast, in your case.
For backup purposes, you should be set, I think, already.
Clear as mud?
