This page used to be filled with some of the tips and information that I thought was useful. As of today, March 22, 2010, I have now deleted most of that information, because I found out about an EXTRAORDINARY product called Site Build it!
SBI! takes you through every step of building a successful website. It teaches you how to pick the right domain name, keywords and how to lay out your pages so that they are perfectly optimized for search engines.
I read about SBI! a few years ago, and was very impressed with what I found out about it. But they used to only offer a yearly subscription plan for $299 per year, and I just never "took the plunge". In late 2009, however, they started offering a monthly subscription plan, and I jumped at the chance to sign up! I figured... what the heck... if I can't do it, or if it's just a bunch of useless information, I can always un-subscribe and only be out a couple of monthly subscription payments.
Boy, am I glad I signed up! I have literally learned more about building a successful website in the last two months than I learned in over 5 years of trying to figure it out on my own! I learned how to research my idea about an American History website into a refined, keyword rich, "optimized for search engines" new website. I now have all the tools I need in one place, and I'm able to steadily build my new website into one that I believe will far out perform this one. I fully expect my brand new little site about American History Fun Facts to be drawing more traffic in 6 months than this website does after over 5 years of existence. ***(It took less than a month! See update below) I am now building a business - one that will be successful - I'm sure of it! The reason that I am sure of it is because SBI! has given me all of the tools that I need to be successful
Before I found Site Build it!, when I first started my handcrafted jewelry website, I had absolutely no knowledge about building a website. My experience with online selling consisted of my eBay business, not a stand alone website. I had to search all over the internet to find tools and information about running a website and optimizing my website for search engines (SEO - Search Engine Optimization). I spent over 5 years trying to learn about SEO, keyword marketing, social networking, etc., all in attempt to bring more traffic to my little website.
