Hiring someone to make your website can be expensive. Nowadays, many people are making their own websites. Before you start building, it is important to know what type of site you want to make. For example, if you are an artist looking to display your work, the format of your site will be quite different than a site that is geared towards selling wholesale products. When you know what you want your site to be about, you can find the best web host to suit your specific needs. Use a search engine to find a web host that caters best to your niche. Register your domain name (choose a good one!), and you are ready to start.
Building Your Website
Gain Visibility for Your Site
Search engines that Google use a variety of factors to determine web site ranking, but for a budding site, it is important to use keywords that your audience would choose when performing searches. Using these keywords in excess throughout your site will inevitably cause more damage than good to your web site’s content. But a subtle scattering of good keywords will bring more visitors to your site, and improve your site’s Google ranking. For tips on how to do this well, research SEO (it stands for Search Engine Optimization). The more time and effort you put into learning what makes a site popular, the more successful your site will be.
The Final Stages in Making a Website
When you feel confident that your site is ready to be seen, publish it! Test your site out by showing it to friends, and family. For a less biased opinion, try showing it to colleagues in your field. Be sure to ask for constructive criticism; compliments are great, but constructive criticism can be more valuable in helping you see what may need adjustments or fixing. Consider posting in a forum designed for sharing web sites and generating input. Making your own website can be challenging but also very satisfactory! It will make you feel accomplished, and proud that you put in the time and work to make your site on your own.
