Dr Ned Learns How To Build A Website
"If I only knew then what I know now . . . " Words I know I've said, thought and felt, probably more than I should have. Lately that's the way I've been feeling about my website.
Now, don't get me wrong, I think I've got a pretty good website. It's functional, it looks good and people actually find it and call me because of it.
Sometime late 2008 or early 2009 I decided to get a website. The problem was I didn't know how to build a website. I had limited experience with site building companies and what I had heard from others about these companies wasn't that good either.
I wanted an easy website builder because my knowledge of website building was only slightly larger than my knowledge of time travel.
So I searched and searched and found an online website builder. Well that didn't do it for me. I know there are some really good programs out there, but I was unable to get the look and the layout I wanted.
So, I found a free lancer, someone I knew that I could work with in all aspects of my building my site, and who would give me feedback and status updates in a timely manner.
So, what do I wish I knew then what I know now? Having someone else build the site has left it very difficult to alter. It's a great site, but wasn't initially built for search engine optimization. Which, some may say it more important then the look or even the content of the site.
I am participating in a blog campaign from Bucks2Blog for an online website builder company and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are my own.
