Every day you surf the Internet and look at web design and SEO at its finest. When your surfing your not thinking about how this site got there or how it was made.Your just looking for what you want to see or buy. Now lets approach this another way. Next time you surf the Internet look at the sites you stop at and their design. Right click on the right side of where nothing is placed. This will bring up a box and click on view source. Now we’re getting somewhere. Now that you have a better idea let’s start with your own web design. If your not computer savvy or you can not write code such as php or html you might want to research some programs to build your site for you. There are many out there to choose from. Find the one that you can use with the least amount of head ache.
Now that you have your program you can start thinking about what your going to build. If your like me I usually get the main basic stuff out of the way. After that I can then play around with the design and think about the topic of the website.Say your going to do lawn work or landscaping.You would want to use a yard with possibly a person mowing grass or someone planting scrubs. Even better idea if you have decent cell phone camera or a good quality camera go out and find someone mowing grass. Just go to a populated area in the spring or summer time hopefully. Take a couple of pictures so you can choose the best one. Maybe take a few pictures of nicely landscaped yards so you could use them as background material. Now all you have to do is put it on your site. Just finish up with a navigation bar and a couple of text bars to put some print on and your site is on its way.
SEO is probably the most important part of the web design. With out SEO your site will not get any traffic.Now what is SEO(search engine optimization)is keyword strategy. First you must find the top keywords that you can rank for. Try using Goggle keyword finder. If this is your first rodeo you might want to try keyword that are about the middle of the road to less than that. Start out with the daily search and then move on to the adwords PPC. The most expensive to the least expensive. Start looking at the ones in the middle to below that. Once you have found your keywords you must place them in the content part of your site. Make sure your heading has the keyword in it. If your a beginner only use one keyword per page to start with.This way you will be able to see what is going on and re-adjust from there. You also need good quality page content. Depending on how many words your content will be will have a big effect on how many times your keyword needs to be repeated through out your content. If you have money they have programs to do all the things I’m telling you about. A good quality SEO program will take all the mystery out of the Density and Prominence. You will need this to have a page rank higher in the search engines. Write your topic about good clean content. Don’t get it from somebody or get it off the Internet. It must be completely original. Also you want your keywords at the top of the page or you can use a meta tag box for keywords but that’s for somebody with more experience. It would be nice to have a couple of links that you put on the site linking to another site. Maybe do that later. Ok now your ready to publish your site.
With so much knowledge on the Internet today anything you don’t understand you can Google it. So do some research and try my ideas above and put everything together in one neat web design and your in business. Remember that build it and they will come is not true. There are many more articles on how to make that happen. Do your best and you will succeed.
