Q6. How do I update my website?
A. There are many different methods which can be used to update websites. The method you choose and the functionality we build into
your website design is solely up to you , we will be glad to advise you which method will suit your needs.
If you have a small website consisting of just a few pages and will only wish to make changes very infrequently, then we will make these changes for you.
Other methods which are frequently chosen are largely dependant upon how much data or information and pictures you have and how you store this
information at present.
We can provide an on line content management system where you can either update individual products/pages/services or particular sections of your website.
e.g. latest news.
Alternatively we can provide functionality such that you can upload your entire product ranges to the website in one action using spreadsheets etc. management.
or complete database driven content
Q7. How do I advertise my site?
A. There are many ways to advertise your site, but the most effective way is “word of mouth.”
It’s free and if people can recommend your site that makes it even more credible.
The more useful and unique you can make your site, the more others will want to bookmark and tell others about it.
The biggest mistake people make when building their sites is lack of content.
If your site is for information purposes and you want to reel in the traffic, then you need to start out with at least 30 pages of content and plan to keep building.
Giving people a reason to return.
Q8. How do I get my site listed with the major search engines
A. These days, the keys to getting your site listed and ranked high with the popular engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing is all about links.
You want to get other sites that are related to your theme to link back to you using the keywords you are targeting.
For example, if your site is about bowling balls, you will want to get links from other bowling related sites.
That’s why putting out quality content and networking is so very important.
This helps provide a “vote” for your site and the search engines start to see that your site must be worthy of a good rank if other people are linking to it
using certain relevant content.
