How to Create a Website


Are you ready to build your Website. For your domain name you should use your brand name or strive for an exact match domain (EMD) of your main keyword, if available (see topic: "keyword Research"). So if your keyword is 'women car insurance' you'll go for www.womencarinsurance.com. if this is not available try the .net, .info or any other TLD that happens to be available.

EMD domains used to get you a big advantage with Google - but not anymore. Unfortunately Google has changed their algo regarding EMDs but it still can get you some extra points, and of course anything that Google gives we are willing to take.

As for the hosting service I highly recommend you use HostGator, They are reliable, responsible and very suitable for internet marketing activities.

The cheapest and fastest way to build an effective site is to use Wordpress. and by the way, HostGator is probably the easiest web hosting platform to install Wordpress on.

Using a few clicks of the mouse, your HostGator-hosted Wordpress site will be up and ready in less than five minutes. look for instructions at their site.

Once Wordpress is installed on your server there are some modifications that you need to make to the site.

First you need to set Wordpress to present SEO Friendly Permalinks. Although we don't' concentrate on the internal pages of our site, they often can rank in the SE's. So it is very important to set a good URL structure. Once logged into Wordpress, Click "Settings" then "Permalinks" and change it from default to "Post Name." This will change the structure of the URL's from default (site.com/?p=114 for example) to a good, SEO friendly version (site.com/title-of-post-goes-here).

Now replace the default theme with another one, simply find a new theme that is simple and "clean" - use the automated theme installation process from within Wordpress. "Appearance" then "Themes" (while logged into Wordpress) then click the "Install Themes" tab. Leave all of the fields empty (they are by default) and then click the "Find Themes" button.

Next, Clean the theme from unnecessary elements - by default, most themes have the sidebar loaded up with useless things like META links, a calendar, archives etc. The footer also typically contains one or more links that can be removed and there are a few other useless things included by default as well. So the next step is to clean all of that up! We don't want excessive external links draining the authority we generate, which could be going back into our internal pages. And we want everything focused on the content and the ads.

Now you need to set the homepage to show only one article - it needs to look more like a static site and less like a blog. Primarily because it reduces canonical URL's and duplicate content. To do this, you're going to publish the homepage article as a page rather than as a post!

Once you've done that, click "Settings" then "Reading" and select the "A static page" radio button and then next to "Front page" select the page that is optimize for your keyword and then click "Save Changes." Now view your site in a browser and you should see that article, and that article only, on the homepage.

Now Clean up the footer and the sidebar and remove any unneeded links like the link to the theme creator's website, the link to Wordpress, Etc.

What theme should you choose for your Wordpress site?

While there are many free Wordpress themes out there, I recommend you use a theme called Thesis. This is much more than a theme, it's more of a design and template manager for Wordpress and it's the best theme for a business site that is meant to be ranked high on the search engines.

Now what about content?

You need to start with at list 6 article pages for a new site. Each article should be 500 to 1000 words long.

The best option is that you yourself will wright the content, or alternatively you can contract someone else to write the articles for you, this is not expensive. Simply run a Google search for "article writing" or "articles writers" and you'll get plenty of offers.

The third option is that you use automation tools. The best source for automating site content is a service called Article Builder. Article Builder produces high quality unique articles built around the topics and keywords that you give it. Each article is built by weaving together snippets to build an article based on your category and subtopic choices. They have tens of thousands of categorized snippets in the database, every time you generate an article, it's different!

In addition to being a good source of content Article Builder has another extremely useful feature. It can post content automatically to your Wordpress site on the schedule you choose.  Why this is important? because Google likes sites that are being updated with new material on a regular basis. It is recommended that you set Article Builder to post a new article to your site once a week or about 3 articles monthly, this way you'll gain some extra points with Google.

Now here is a trick to creating articles fast and cheap. This is not very ethical and I am a bit shame telling you I did it, but anyway since I pledged to tell you all my tricks (or at least most of them ;-), I fill obliged to tell you about this one too, just that you'll know that this is available.

Here's how it works, you run a Google search with your topic as the search term, you add the word 'tips' or 'Guide' to the search. Now you collect several snippets from different good on topic articles that came in the search. next, you combine these snippets into one article. Now you spin this article with a spinner software to get an entirely new article. Just make sure you use the manual spinning mode so that your article will make sense.

In case you are not familiar with the concept of "spinning articles" here are some explanations. With this process you utilize a simple software program that takes an original article and alter it using replacement words (synonyms via an automated thesaurus) in order to create entirely new articles without having to re-write them. It's called "spinning" an article.

The best spinner software on the market today is called... The Best spinner. If you wish to be a successful internet marketer you need to familiarize yourself with this concept. They have on their site a nice video explaining its uses. You should take a look.
