decisions to make when creating a web site.
want a reliable
one that is up online 24/7/365.
Next is tech
you can't get tech support for when those little things happen it is
almost unbearable and too late to do anything about as most hosting
services are for a year or more. They are cheaper if you get plans that
are a year or more. Paying monthly will cost way too much in the end.

IS YOUR JOB
as the WEBSITE OWNER
USE the www.... on EVERYTHING!!!!! It will become your BEST ADVERTISING!
(Maintenance, Awards, Flyers,
Search Engine submissions
and now you need a website and email address just to function...
- It's not really as hard as it seems :)
your site is something you have to do from the time it is online till
it's down. It's like any other business and you need to advertise. Fill
out forms and get links to other sites as well as link backs to yours.
Search engines will acknowledge sites with many links and it helps to
keep you in the search engine listings that way.
& BUSINESS CARDS are a great start to getting your website
out there for all to see. Make
sure you include your
(www.?.com and email address) on all advertising from the minute you
register the name and put your site online. Most Web
Designers can also make
Flyers, Ads and Business cards from the information they have for your
SEARCH ENGINE SUBMISSIONS
kinds of free
submission places online. You need to fill the forms out
over again- so save the information you want to advertise your site
with in a text file to refer to regularly) It takes about 3 months from
the time your site goes online (with proper meta tags) till you will
actually see your site in a search engine. Searching for your site in
the search engines and then getting to your site will also aid in
getting higher ranks in the listings but filling out actual search
engine submission forms is the only way to actually get them listed.
