Although when the internet was first introduced you would have to be very knowledgeable about computers and computer language in order to create a website but today, with the assistance of WordPress and similar software, almost anyone can now create a website in about 10 minutes or so. In fact today it has been estimated that more than 60% of all websites on the internet today were created using software like WordPress. This software will do everything you need in order to create a website including converting what you want into a language that the computers can understand. You will need though, apart from this software, a domain name which is the term given to your website address such as wiki.com and a host site which is the server which will connect your website to the internet. These are not very expensive though and so the whole site can be created and linked to the internet in less than 10 minutes and with less than $10. Although this is possible, most businesses prefer to Contact Us or someone like us to build their website for them. As professional website builders we are able to not only create you a website but create you a website you would be proud of and all in less than 7 days.
Having a website hosted on the internet though is not necessarily beneficial if it is never seen by anyone and that is what often happens when businesses create their own websites and place them online. You see once your website is online, it is competing with the other millions of other websites which are already on line, to be seen. As there are so many websites even if someone initiates a search for something you can provide, there will probably be at least another 100 other websites that can also provide it and all of them will be listed by the search engine. As people that initiate searches rarely look at any other than the first two or three, if your website is listed as number 56, it may never be seen that way. We can though, apply SEO to your website and SEO is Search Engine Optimization and it is a way of convincing the search engine to place your website near the top of the list, if not at the top.
We can also create back links to your website. A back link is where you place a link from another website, directly to your site. What this achieves is that everybody that visits that other site will be encouraged to also visit yours and if that is a very popular site, and we know which ones are, a lot of people could visit your site this way. If asked to we could also keep your website updated with new material and what this achieves is that return visitors do not have to keep seeing the same material and so they do not get bored and try a different website for what they want.
