There are many important things to consider when you are looking to start a website. First thing you need to figure out is what is the exact point of your site? Is it going to be purely informational or are you going to be selling something. These things are very important to the ground work of how to begin.
Building a website is like building a house. The first thing you need to do is basically layout everything just like the makings of a blue print for a home. Next you need to take it to an expert to make sure your plans are correct and that nothing will collapse on you in mid stream. Remember that building a website with SEO in mind is not a simple process.
The next thing you will need to do is keyword research. This really needs to be done even before you purchase a domain name for yourself. Keyword research is probably the most important thing when it comes to your website. If you are targeting odd or often unsearched keywords that don’t yield much traffic, that can almost be as bad as not doing SEO at all. Find the right keywords that aren’t too broad or overly competitive. It often helps to include your keywords with in your domain name – trust us – it’s a bonus.
Once have done your research you need to then buy a domain name and hosting for your site. This is important almost like buying the property for your home. Once you own that domain or property no one else will be allowed to build on that domain or property with out consent from you. One tip that will make a difference is to make sure that you’re hosted on a good quality server. Hosting companies that know what they’re doing will make sure you have a seperate dedicated IP address. This way anyone else who possibly shares hosting with you won’t be able to penalize you for their mistakes. Yes, that happens!
These first few things are essential for starting a website. Stay posted as further steps will also be explained.
