Four Easy Steps For Building A Website

Jan 30, 2008
There are not many steps for building a website. The secret is just "do it", don't wait until you are some kind of expert, you'll learn as you build the first one, then two, then three, and so on ...

1. Unless you really want to hit the books and learn all about the coding you need to know so as to make web pages you get a website builder and without much effort you can produce a website or website's that do what you need them to do.

Without knowing too much when it come HTML, you will learn a little just by building sites then you'll be able to put that knowledge to work on the next website you build and build better and better sites as you go, you'll be able to build your first website.

The free programs can be used to build websites, just do a search in a search engine, I just did and got these results 858,000 for "free website builder" .

But ... you say, "I have a real job where I work 40 - 50 hours a week, I have a family and lots of other commitment on my time, I don't have the time to work a second job". There are also programs you can purchase, quality ones for way under $100, that won't just help you put together one page, they will build an entire site for you. Some will build you a small, quality, content filled website of 5 - 10 pages, other will build you a thousand page website in a matter of minutes.

These allow you to put in some articles that you wrote, or had written for you (.doc or .text), the content of the page, or a bunch of keywords, and when you click the "Go"button they generate a few pages or a thousand pages, whatever you wanted.

2. Another thing you need, of course is a, domain name. Do a search for "choose a domain name" and you will find the steps to selecting a good domain name (there are too many suggestions for this article). Another idea is to go check out NameBoy.com, they are totally free and may help you find the domain name you want. You should not use the name of a well-known company or product, any variation of that name, in hopes of attracting people to your site. Not only is this unethical and it may subject you to legal problems.

3. Purchase hosting for your website. A "host" is who puts your website up on the Internet. There are many inexpensive hosting packages out there, some even give you a domain name for free.

4. Creating content, or have someone do it for you, the stuff that fills the page, holds the visitors interest, attracts the search engines and sells whatever it is that you are selling affiliate products, your own products, ebooks, or even Adsense.

You can write these yourself or you can hire people, online, who can write for you.

Not too much work is it? You do need to work on the sego (search engine optimization) of the page as in the meta tags of the pages, the headlines and the keywords.

After that you'll want to work on generating traffic to your website via manually submitting your site to some of the search engines, writing and submitting articles, and maybe even setting up a blog.
