Making a Website
So you’ve got an idea, and you’ve decided that you want to take this idea and run with it in order to get yourself into the online eye as quickly as possible. You know that your content is controversial, eye-catching, emotionally stimulating, hilarious, something that you’re going to have people telling their friends to tell their friends to tell their friends about. You know you’ve got it all up there and ready to make an impact, but there’s an issue; you have no idea how to create a website. This article is going to give you a little kindle to start your precious cyber-fire on the road to becoming a massive, online inferno.
Where do I start?
First and foremost, you are going to need to identify a target audience. A certain kind of visitor that’s going to come to your website based on their own particular interests is the kind that you want to be thinking about. Before web pages, before HTML, before server hosting and all of the rest of the primary framework, you need an idea of how your idea is going to reach people miles away on a level that can’t be crossed physically, but ideologically. When you have content that is guaranteed to make people come to you rather than you seeking them out and asking them to visit with shameless plugging, you’re now an alpha-content creator.
How will I attract traffic?
If you don’t yet know the basics of creating HTML code to craft a website, you can brush up in a relatively swift amount of time with hundreds of online resources that educated on the topic; or, if you’ve got the means to spare, hire someone to provide the code that brings your website to fruition. Now that you have your website’s makeup finished and know the exact kind of person you want to attract, how exactly do you go about it? It’s simple. With tools like Google AdSense, you can easily start a campaign for a predetermined amount of money that will work to make Google feature your website higher in the search engine registrar than it would ever be with no assistance at all. You’ll find that there are all kinds of options on the net to pay either third party companies or individuals to promote your content for you; all that you have to do is look.
How important is the domain name?
Generally speaking, a .com domain name is going to be seen as the most ‘legitimate’ by average visitors to random web content, which is the reason why they are relatively costly compared to .net and.edu variants. Depending on the content of your webpage, the domain that’s most appropriate for it may vary; for example, a .org domain name is appropriate for a website that servers as a registry for information, while a .edu domain name is usually related to websites having to do with academia. You can purchase domain names from all over the net, from dedicated registrar markets to personal deals with people who already own them.
