Before you go ahead and design your own website from scratch, it’s highly recommended that you use website templates to make your job easier. Believe it or not, even web designers use web templates to make setting up a site easier. These templates can be Joomla, WordPress, or HTML. Templates in all kinds of formats are available for you to use.
How much do you think you could save over a year, two years, a lifetime of SEO and traffic generation? Even if you only did 2 gigs a month and only saved $5 a month with your testing, the software would still have saved you $60 in a year. Now compound that by the cost of most services plus the time it takes you to do everything, and the savings add up quick.
Sell yourself Now WordPress blogs don’t get it the wrong way. There are some sites online known as freelance services in which web masters or companies will pay you money if you do certain tasks for them. If you can build websites, program, or do any other technical skills then join these sites.
AdWords are a situation of what’s good for one person might not be what’s great for everyone. See, if you have the know how and the funds it really can be a good way to market. I would never suggest that it’s the only thing you do to market your business online however.
It’s Open Source. By opening the code to all programmers, till bloggen has grown by leaps and bounds. Today there are thousands of applications, themes and plug-ins available that would not be around if the code was protected.
B. It’s search friendly. I’ve talked about it earlier that when you have a WordPress site, just by the very nature of it, if content is added monthly which is what we do for our electrician clients but you can do it yourself as well. If content in the form of pages and blog posts are added each month to your site then search engines love that. By search engines I mean Google, Yahoo and Bing. The three of them account for about 95% of searches. We want to get found when people search for terms like electrician and electrical contractors, etcetera, and if you have a WordPress site with content being added monthly or weekly that is keyword targeted in our content and it’s created in a certain way, those Google search engines and Yahoo search engines are much more likely to find you.
Now that you have a blog setup, the one most important thing you can do, is to post on a regular basis, preferably daily or even twice a day. That doesn’t mean you have to write a 600 to 700 word article each time you post. In fact, you can take one post and split it up into two or three parts and post them with the note attached that the next part will be put up later. Soon the spider bots of Google will be visiting your site often. And of course that is what we are aiming for.
