Let’s say that you’ve been hired to write ten articles on coffee and you have one day to complete the job. You may not have ten article ideas in your head when you start your first article. That’s okay. As you write, you will get ideas and thoughts which may not be applicable to the article you’re writing at the time, but are related. Write each of these ideas down on a separate piece of paper. By the time you’re finished with the first article, you might already have titles for the remainder.
Once you have decided on the keywords you are going to target, the type and size of site you intend to create and have a fair idea of what others are doing in the same niche, you should be ready to start work. The following steps now continue from the above.
Before loading any software your first step should be to draw out a site map of how you would like your website to look. This may seem a bit old school but it is a proven method to create a better website design. You should start your plans by designing the home page of your website and work out from there. Next you should sketch out what you would like the web pages to look like. Use this time to decide what elements you would like to include on the pages and where they will be located.
Selecting the right template for your site is key. With website building sites offering such a large selection of templates tailored for businesses, portfolios, bands and events, it is important to consider the one that will format your content appropriately.
Before you create your website you are going to want to map out what you want. Just like a spider web, you want to jot down which pages you are going to add to your website. Some basic pages are contact, map, about us, service, location, etc. Then of course you want to purchase a template or have one designed for you. If you go this route you may have to invest in some web design software that will let you make changes to your site with ease. This is why some people stay clear or regular site. Also, websites tend to remain static. You should plan on changing your website at least a couple times a month.
And the last and most difficult option you have is to hand code your HTML using simple editors like Notepad. For you to do this, you will need an extensive knowledge and experience on HTML, CSS and Java.
A “Site Map” is required for the “spiders” to crawl your site properly. For more info on this you can type “Google approved site map” in any search engine and you will have mucho info to review.
