Some of the hesitancy in developing and maintaining a good website is derived from misunderstandings of what it takes to make a website productive. This article shares 8 things you can do with relative ease to enable your website to deliver better results. They are:
1. Make Sure Your Website is User Friendly
Whether in an offline or online environment, your target market can't be expected to buy your product if you do not make it easy to find and purchase. Your website can enhance the ease with which information and specs about your products/services can be found, thereby making the decision to buy them easier. Your website needs to (a) open quickly, (b) be easy to navigate and find information, and (c) provide a painless checkout process. If you can meet these three criteria, visitors will enjoy being on your site, and your sales through the site will increase.
2. Give in to Speed
According to some sources, you have about 30 seconds to convince a visitor to your website to stay there and look for what they came to purchase. If your website takes these same 30 seconds to upload, or you have a 30 second flash that is well prepared but devoid of any message (loved by the graphic design folks and marketing people for its creativity and hated by visitors because it takes time and says nothing), then you will lose visitors even before you have a chance to present your benefits and offer. The key to speed is a well designed site hosted on servers that deliver high speed.
3. Know Who Your Site is Targeting
The better you understand your target market the better your website will perform. Keeping in mind that the website is a marketing tool, and that knowing your market is a fundamental of good marketing, it makes sense that your website should be developed with your market in mind. You need to understand how you market behaves not only in terms of buying habits and spending patterns, but also, in the case of effective web development, online. The online behavior of your market will help you construct the site to meet their expectations, needs and preferences. In most cases the market will demand (a) that your site be updates and provide the latest relevant information, (b) that the site enable their inquiries through the latest online technologies, and (c) that the website be convenient to navigate.
4. Know Your Goals
Just as with offline business, "getting more sales" is not a useful goal in that it is vague, overly apparent, and devoid of any market based elements. You need to approach your website with goals and objectives in mind, not only so that the site can be constructed consistent with them, but also so that the maintenance of the site can be executed to support them. For example, the goals of your website could be "present products in an attractive manner that allows prospective buyers to visual their use and benefits". Another legitimate objective could be "to present information on products and the company so as to educate consumers and broaden our customer base". In both instances, the goals are clearly defined, and the websites constructed around them will be designed in architecture and appearance to maximize the success of the stated objectives.
5. Develop a Smart Web Architecture
When it comes to the architecture of your website - where the information is placed and the paths visitors take to get to it - the most critical tool you can deploy is common sense. Most people will look for information in the place where it is most logical for it to be. If you get creative, or want to make a point with your navigation (or the names you give to the information links you have) you will find that most people will leave your site rather than try to unravel the brilliance you are showing through your very clever structure. In other words, people are on your site to get to something, the easier you make it for them to get there, the better your website is. Period.
6. Operate According to a Plan
Like any marketing tool, your website needs to be tied into your overall marketing strategy and needs to be reflective of your company, its products, and the message and image it seeks to communicate to the market. Your website needs to have a plan of operation that detail, through a process and in accordance with steps, timelines, and accountability elements, the milestones for measuring performance and success. The plan needs to include (a) processes and timetables for updates and announcements, (b) your web marketing campaign, and (c) how your site will compete against similar sites.
7. Market Your Website
Like every other aspect of your business, if you do not market what you are doing nobody will know about it or why what you are selling is something they should buy. There are many ways to market a website and, as with Tudog's approach to traditional marketing, we recommend a basket of tactics. These include (a) organic embedding of metatags and other keywords into the content of your website so as to secure a higher natural listing on the search engines, (b) the purchase of select keywords to ensure high search results when these words are punched in, (c) affiliate sites and appearances on other sites, and (d) targeted web ads. These marketing tactics will assist you in driving traffic to your site, as well as serve to raise general awareness for your company.
8. Monitor Your Activities
The Internet offers excellent opportunities to monitor and analyze your activities so that you can be certain that what you are doing is not only working, but maximizing your potential. The web can help you determine how many people are coming to your site, where they are going inside the site, where they came from into your site, and whether or not they made a purchase. You can use this information to determine the efficacy of your navigation, architecture, content, graphics, message and marketing.
Your website, like all other aspects of your marketing, is a window into your company and a reflection of not only how much respect you have in what you do, but also how much respect and commitment you have toward your customers. A professional website demonstrates a professional attitude. Anything less is
Many dating sites offer a free trial period in order to give the prospective customer the opportunity to test the facilities available, and perhaps even make contact with new friends before deciding to join as a paying member. The idea works great in theory! But the truth is that when anything is offered for free, it will often attract those who are only partially interested or have no interest at all.
Many of the dating websites I visited as part of my research revealed higher than fifty percent of their membership had neither completed their profiles or included a photo. It is not rocket science to agree that this practice is a complete waste of time, not only for the member concerned, but also for the website owner and indeed the other genuine members of the dating website. There is nothing more annoying than to run a search of the member database only to discover a host of profiles with little or no information about the member, and littered with "I'll tell you later" answers to the simplest of multiple choice questions.
Most dating sites will inform members of the importance of adding photos to their profile, and many, including our own website at sugardaddyhaven.com offer the facility of password protecting their personal pics so they are able to choose who will view them. However a staggering seventy-eight percent of dating site members we interviewed, informed us that they will only search for members who include a photograph with their profile.
I, personally can never understand how anyone can join a dating website and not bother to fill in his or her profile. How can they ever expect to create interest from other members, and my guess is they will not get a single response in their inbox. After all, your profile is your salespage. An opportunity to present yourself to the world.. describing not just your physical statistics but likes and dislikes, a brief synopsis of your character and a reasonably detailed description of your ideal mate. The addition of a photo or two will definately increase the amount of interest in your profile by three hundred percent at very least.
So how do dating site owners encourage their membership to present a quality profile that will not only increase the chances of creating interest but also enhance the whole website, as we are all in agreement that incomplete profiles are a complete waste of time and space.
Although we have only recently launched sugardaddyhaven.com we have taken a fair yet strong stance in the problem of empty profiles. We do not believe that nagging the member with a barrage of email reminders will entice them to return to the site, solely to complete their profile. Quite the reverse, in fact badgering would be more likely to ensure that the member never returned to the site again.
We at sugardaddyhaven.com firmly believe that the process of creating the profile needs to be completed at the time the user registers as a member. In an effort to ensure that the whole process is completed during registration we have introduced an extention to the free membership period for those who create a complete profile at that time. So now, in addition to the thirty days free trial period, we offer a further thirty days to those who complete their profile at the time of registration. And to further discourage those who still decide to display no information, such profiles will auto-delete if not completed within seven days.
Any dating website can only be judged on it's membership, and whether joining as a free member or upgrading to paying member, once you join a dating site you have a moral obligation to create a profile and present yourself to other members who have the same interest as you. Otherwise you will have nothing to offer that particular dating community and there is little point in you becoming a member.
Although early days yet, first signs are encouraging at sugardaddyhaven.com and we hope this move will enable us to to maintain a dating website with a one hundred percent profile completion, which can only benefit our genuine members.

Most businesses only use one or maybe two of the four. You can increase your direct revenue and your opportunities for cross-promotion if you consider them all.
Here's a review of what you need for each. In every case you want to deliver what your customers expect and automate as much of the process as possible.
You can make money on your site by selling things. You can sell products or services, but to make money you have to make sure you have mastered the details.
No matter what you're selling you'll need a good shopping cart. Online shoppers expect to be able to pay with credit cards and with PayPal and complete transactions online. Your shopping cart should calculate shipping charges and sales tax automatically.
If you're selling physical products, make sure you've worked out all the fulfillment details. Make sure that you have a shipping and inventory system that will deliver great service to your customers.
Since the net is a worldwide phenomenon, you may get orders from other countries. How will you handle them?
You can also sell digital products such as e-books and Special Reports. Buyers will expect to be able to download their digital product as soon as they've completed paying.
You can sell services. Many companies are conducting classes on the web, called "webinars." You'll need to be able to take orders and send acknowledgments to those who sign up. You'll also need a reliable way to deliver your webinar.
You can make money on your site by having subscribers or members who pay you a fee. A membership or subscription fee is simply payment for privileged access.
People will pay for access to current content, to archives, to services or to other people. Determine what mix of these is best for your business. Make sure you can handle subscription payments, acknowledgments and renewals.
You can make money on your site from advertising. This used to be quite complicated. But today, with Google's AdSense program just about any site can generate advertising revenue.
You can make money on your site by using your site for referrals and commissions. On the web, these are called "affiliate programs." They can help you make money two ways.
When you send business to another site using an affiliate link, you generate a modest fee for yourself. Whenever you recommend a product or service on your site, check to see if there's an affiliate program that will pay you for the link.
Your own affiliate program can help you draw more desirable traffic to your site. You'll need software to help you keep track of the business that affiliates send your way. There are standalone packages for this, but affiliate software is also part of most sophisticated shopping cart packages.
None of these items is rocket science. So use this article as a checklist and take a look at online shopping cart software and ecommerce providers like 1AutomationWiz.com to help you automate all of these methods on your ecommerce web site.
The bottom line in increasing revenue is using as many of the above income generation methods as you can, as effectively as possible. It's another case of how the marketing magic is in the mix.
Home Loans and Government Websites
The government is famous for influencing the behavior of all of us. Despite the draconian conspiracy theories one hears or reads about, the government usually does this in a passive way. Specifically, it uses financial incentives or penalties to nudge us into certain actions. In the case of homeownership, the government offers a ton of information and incentives to try to get us to invest in our dream home or at least start the process of getting there by buying a first house. In fact, there are a number of government websites that provide all the information you could want.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is one of the key agencies dealing with homeownership. The department, better known as HUD, maintains a website listing the various programs it has, benefits and requirements of the same, and HUD homes that have been foreclosed on and are now for sale. You can visit the site by simply doing a search for HUD.
In the case of HUD, it is important to understand the agency does not actually write mortgage loans. Instead, it guarantees loans if you meet certain parameters. Essentially, this is like having a really rich uncle cosign your loan, something banks love. In fact, down payments on HUD loans can very low given the fact the government is backing them.
If you have served in the armed forces of your country, you are almost always designated a veteran. While salaries in the armed forces are not particularly high, the benefits can definitely make up for it. In addition to college loans and such, veterans receive mortgage loan breaks through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Known as the VA, you can get major help with loans on first homes and even use programs to get into VA foreclosed properties. Just search for

So, clearly there is a huge market place online that needs to be serviced by online shops and websites selling products and services. As a business owner I can see a huge market for established businesses in the real World to move into the World of eCommerce and sell online.
ECommerce Website Partners should be assessed for their suitability to deliver a quality ongoing relationship that will be to your company
Allowing a specialist to shop around for imported car insurance can get you several quotes and you can be sure you will get the cheapest possible quotes. And as the website specialises in car insurance and, in particular, imported car insurance, they will also give you all the facts and information you need to know about the motor insurance including the small print and the terms and conditions of the policy.
There are three choices when it comes to insuring your car - the dearest and most comprehensive car insurance is of course fully comprehensive. Fully comp will give all the cover needed for the majority of motorists and by shopping around you can get some great bonuses and add-ons; fully comp will pay for your car to be repaired if you should be involved in an accident and the other party
Whether or not you should start your own blog depends largely on the use to which you blog will be put. Many bloggers are blogging for strictly social reasons; other use their blogs for productive purpose; and some bloggers manage to combine socializing and being productive in a single blog.
If your intention in starting a blog is to socialize, you will be most successful by creating your blog at one of the high-traffic social networking sites like MySpace and opening it up for comments so that you can begin a dialog with your readers.
If you want a productive blog, on the other hand, asking yourself why you should start your own blog takes on added importance, because anyone maintaining a productive blog will have to make a commitment of time if he or she expects the blog to succeed.
If you are considering a productive blog, you would do well to steer clear of the social networking arena and set yourself up on one of the blog hosting sites like WordPress or Blogger. When you have your blog up and running, you

A secured loan means that you put up something as security against the money that you borrow, it is one of the easiest types of loans to be approved for and it allows to you to borrow more over a longer period of time than a personal loan would allow you to do. What you put up as security against the loan is something of extreme value and in the majority of cases is your home, you do have to bear in mind that if you should have problems with repaying the loan then the lender can seek a court order to have your home repossessed. Therefore you should always weigh up the reason for taking out the loan against risking losing your home.
You should decide at the outset how long you wish to take the loan out for before going with a specialist website for quotes and whether you want to take out a fixed rate of interest or a variable rate. The variable rate will alter in line with the Bank of England base rate which can either go up or down while the fixed will remain the same for a specified amount of time. There are good points and bad to both. If the rate of interest drops then you are stuck with the higher rate regardless, while if you go with a variable and the rate rises rapidly this can add a lot more money onto the cost of the loan.
If you need information regarding interest rates along with finding quick secured loans then a specialist website should offer this information before you apply for quotes. Once you have got your quotes then you will have to decide which is the best for your needs, of course the cheapest rates of interest will influence this greatly but you should also check out the small print and key facts because these can make a difference to the outcome.
Additional costs can be included in the loan and the small print is where you will find them so always compare the key facts of any loans you are considering, early repayments and other fees can be attached to the loan and unless you know of their existence before taking out the loan then the cost can be boosted up. Quick secured loans through a specialist website are the best way of going for a loan; two of the biggest reasons are for the cheapest interest rates and the information you are given alongside the quotes which goes a long way to making sure that you know exactly where you stand and how much you owe.

Banner ads are nothing more than simplified HTML code with a link embedded in the code. Banner ads come in all different sizes. Some are as large a 486x60 and some are as small as the tiny size of 88x31. The graphics combined with the text information is what makes banners ads shine. Clicking on it will bring a potential customer right to your site, and then you have a chance to make a sell. Having a well laid out website and clearly written instructions is the next key to selling. Even if your advertising efforts don
How many times have you refreshed the graphics or content of your website? Twice? Once? Not at all?
Many businesses are still hosting first-generation sites that went up at the turn of the millennium. Likewise, the majority of these sites are passé by today's "make-it-useful" standards. Sometimes embarrassingly so.
Internet-savvy businesses will refresh the content on their websites regularly. Think about the impression a site that's a year out of date will have on visitors.
It takes a little dated information for visitors to conclude they've hit a dead end . Plus, when a big-deal client clicks on your "urgent" invitation to attend an upcoming seminar, only to find that the event came and went a year ago he will feel annoyed and foolish. And you'll be toast.
So consider this a noisy wakeup call. It's the 21st century. Is your website still looking like it's 1999?
Site Specific Suggestions
Business sites obviously run a gamut. But for the purposes of site facelifts, differences boil down to how frequently you must make changes. Consulting services may update sites only quarterly or even annually. Ecommerce sites or research companies may require updates by the hour.
Whatever your needs, you can now find appropriate and affordable off-the-shelf software and third-party service providers to do the job. You can, for instance, put a fresh "skin" on your old site without disrupting any functionality.
Here are 11 ideas culled from web marketers and developers that can modernise your site without excessive costs.
1. Reduce the Number of Site Pages
Focus on redesigning only the core 10 to 15 pages, suggests Matt Greer, chief executive at Zeeo Interactive, a Web design services company. You can then archive any remaining popular or highly trafficked pages into Adobe PDF or Microsoft Word documents that are suitable for download.
2. Make the Site a Marketing Tool
If you're not yet capturing data basics, such as which sites and search engines visitors are clicking from or which pages get most visitors, get started now.
Use pre-packaged software or a web services provider to capture detailed information about site visitors. "The first question to ask is: 'When visitors come to your site, what do you want them to do?' " says Erin Duckhorn, spokesperson for Crucial Technology, an online memory upgrade provider. Once you have answers, you can define the tracking metrics and develop the content, navigation and structure that will quickly satisfy your targeted visitors.
3. Set up an E-mail Program
Create an incentive for visitors to register or give you their email addresses.. Once you have addresses, send out useful emailings. But make sure who have explicit permission to do so - and don't cause more harm than good by bombarding them.
4. Create an Online Reward for Prized Customers
Treat your best customers with perks or discounts. "You can give them their own area of the site without any special technology," says Wally Bock, a web consultant. You can also, of course, email special offers.
5. Speed Loading Time
Fancy graphics and animations are obstacles in the path of getting to information. Make sure your visitors can easily find what they're after.
6. Give Visitors Greater, Self-directed Control
In the past two years, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has reworked fairmonthotels.com [link] to expand online booking capabilities. Now, guests who make online room reservations can book dinner or spa services at the same time. The site has also added a "Fairmont Planner" that matches individual resort properties to guest profiles or needs, as well as a "virtual concierge" that offers more details about services.
7. Invest in a Content Management System
Stop relying on static HTML. Instead, invest in a reliable CMS (Content Management System) which lets you update your own website content without getting a developer involved. If you update content a lot, this will pay for itself quickly.
8. Ensure Visibility on Search Engines
The old home page of BreastCancer.org [link], a non-profit informational group based in Pennsylvania was dominated by a giant image of the organisation's logo, an illustrated character called Polly, which prevented search engines from finding the site. "The makeover moved a smaller Polly to the upper right corner of the home page and used text and text links to guide the not particularly Web-savvy users of this site toward the essential information they came looking for," says Ilise Benun.
9. Align the Site to the Organisation
You mighty've reinvented your business a half-dozen times over the past few years. How appropriate is your site now? What about secondary channels or pages? "Many businesses grow their sites in piecemeal fashion," notes Kevin McLaughlin at Public/i, a public relations firm. "As new sections are added over time, the same messages or positioning is not always reflected in the copy throughout the company's entire website." Make sure your site's messaging is always in tune with offline marketing.
11. Add Testimonials or Success Stories
"Very few sites do this and there's no question that they add major credibility for buyers," says Philippa Gamse, a web strategy consultant. Ask long-time customers for quotes or permission to post their case histories and their satisfaction with your services.
Any of these ideas will help update your online presence. But the real advice is simply not to get lazy. Pay attention to your website whenever you shift direction or significantly grow the business. All marketing and messaging must be seamless
First of all just like any successful business you must believe that you'll succeed and never give-up. To be successful with a website you must have the same mentality, never give up and always put time and effort in. Giving up is the single major problem, if you give up on your website too early it will fail.

These days more and more people are turning towards the internet to find ways of making extra cash or even to make a full time income and one of the best is to start a poker information website.
There are numerous advantages to starting a poker website; an enormous customer base, flexibility, the fact that you can start with virtually no money at all, and best of all - the chance to make a really good income online.
Now there are some truly awful poker sites out there but that is in fact a great advantage for you if you decide to build your own poker site. The fact that so many poker websites are of very poor quality means that you can build up a strong and loyal following just by offering a service that is better than the majority of the rubbish out there.
People search the internet for one thing above all others, and that of course is information. If they are looking on the web to learn more about their favorite poker player they want to go to a site where there is some decent, well written content. If they find what they are looking for then they will come back again and you will have gained a loyal customer.
If on the other hand they are taken to a page where there's nothing of interest and all the site is doing is trying to sell them something, they will leave quickly and probably never return.
Once you have enticed your visitors in to look at your site and they have found valuable information, they will be in a mood that is more predisposed towards buying so if you do have something to sell, you are far more likely to buy it.
So provide valuable information for your visitors and you will be miles ahead of all the other junk and spam poker sites out there.
In the 36 months at number one for key search phrases, pre-qualified visitor traffic from Google search results to the triple award winning website has doubled from 20% to 40%. In addition, Google lists 100s of important pages of advice, information and property showcases from PropertyInSpain.Net that attract 1,000s of serious property buyers and investors.
A traffic spike of 114,000 hits resulted in 4,000 people in one day viewing the EUR 1M Mallorca home of the Christopher Columbus family, sold by PropertyInSpain.Net to a UK TV mogul at the price demanded by it
What is a web hosting directory?
A web hosting directory is a place where web hosting companies are listed along with the services they have available as well as their hosting prices. There are often different price categories, ranging from expensive to cheap web hosting services.
What value does a web hosting directory provide?
The good ones provide a way for you to review various cheap web hosting companies and find one that provides quality web hosting services at a reasonable price.
A properly run web hosting directory will include internet web site hosting providers that have the experience needed to host your web site and keep it running despite whatever the Internet throws at it every day.
Is cheap website hosting really a good idea?
As long as you have the right definition for cheap then cheap web hosting is a great idea. The word "cheap" should never refer to the quality of the hosting service itself. It should only refer to the price. If you end being hosted on a cheap server that's run my a hosting company that's too cheap to hire support technicians to staff their data center 24 hours a day, you can quickly regret choosing a cheap web hosting service.
And that's where a good web hosting directory comes in to save the day! But what makes a good web hosting directory? Let's take a look and see.
How to tell a good web hosting directory from a bad one?
A good web hosting directory maintains enough listings of top web hosting services, especially cheap website hosting companies, to give you enough options when making an informed web hosting choice.
Speaking of informed decisions, one very important feature to look for when choosing a web hosting directory to help you find cheap website hosting is the ability for users of the web hosting companies to be able to post their comments and experiences for others to read. That way you can get the opportunity to see what actual customers think about the quality of service that a cheap website hosting company offers before you commit to hosting your web site with them.
Where you host your web site is an important decision. You need help and advice in order to find cheap website hosting that offers a professional commitment to service and support. Make sure that you only depend on a good web hosting directory to help you make that choice.

One big must is your contact information. Would you take out an ad in the yellow pages and not put in your phone number and address? Of course you wouldn't. But often on websites they omit it or hide it. What you want to do is have that information be very visible. You want your customers to be able to contact you.
Now a word of caution if you have a way for customers to email, "Which is recommended" you must return the email promptly. Think of it as you would your business phone, you would always answer the phone and return calls right? So do it with your email.
For many people that use a computer most of the day it can be one of their primary sources of communicating. Have a way so that when they send the email yours will automatically respond back with a message. Such as "thank you for your inquiring we will get back to you within 24 hours". I f you give them a time "shorter the better" be sure to do it. People will shy away from a business that can't keep a simple promise.
Capture their name and email. Ask if they would like to be added to your sales, special promotions, or newsletter, whatever fits your business.
Next up Information.
People are looking at your site for information. Studies show that when people call a restaurant they are asking for location, hours, directions and prices. So give it to them in a place on your site that is easy to find.
Post your menu and prices. I f you own a watch or shoe repair shop state prices for your service. People are shopping/looking for this information. Place your location and directions on home page. Include mapping like Google Maps so they can get directions. Remember state your hours of service. If you have parking challenges give your customers tips on where to park.
Last but not least. Photos.
Photos are very important to the success of your site and business. People love to look at pictures. Remember the saying "A picture is worth a thousand words". Its true. So show off your business. A photo of the storefront puts a visual into the customer's head, so as they drive down the street it will trigger a memory and help with locating your business.
I f you have a restaurant have photos of your food. For a beauty salon/spa show the inside and those comfortable chairs your clients will be using. Take pictures of your friendly staff and owners. Show people that "hey you will enjoy being here". Photo will help create a connection between your business and customers.
I hope this has been helpful and informative in your journey to fulfilling you Hundred-Fold Life.
Browser companies choose what they will support within the W3C standards, and most try to fully comply. Your pages may continue looking okay for years to come because most browsers will support your code no matter what W3C recommends. The impact on search engines may be the real issue, however, and could be more serious in 2 years, or less.
What's expected to happen? The search engine wars are a constant battle of changing the math algorithms to list search results. Too often the results are loaded up front with nonsensical or unrelated sites because of creative designers who get high ranking with remotely related sites, plus a ton of phone directory lists, or other paid listings near the top. The value to the person using the search engine is diminished, and this trend has not been overlooked by the major search engines. They each want to be the best.
Top search engine optimization experts are predicting that the methods used for listings must and will become friendlier to the real customer, the person searching. Some are suggesting that part of this improvement includes placing higher value for ranking on sites with valid code. Site owners enjoying Google page 1 listing, may very soon find their home page back 100 pages or worse if they do not have zero or near zero code errors. This is especially important for commercial sites designed more than 5 years ago.
When you consider most web designs may never become obsolete because browser companies have too much to lose not supporting older code, why the big fuss?
W3C has other recommendations some designers choose to ignore including XHTML which is a code standard designed for the future, so issues other than favorable placement in search engines need to be considered. There are advantages in XHTML that will sound like a foreign language to the average small business entrepreneur at first. An overview follows.
Having a design for the future means that not only will your pages display properly on devices in use today, each will still look great 10 years from now on new computing devices yet to be invented. Most sites that use HTML and tables for the layout include code errors as a result of changes in code standards over the last few years.
Tables are still a valid technique for true tables of information, however, the code may continue to deteriorate as more tags become obsolete thus increasing the number of errors on a site. Like many web sites done in HTML, redesign may be necessary sooner than expected. Will your web site still look okay 10 years from now? Probably, however, the importance of designing without tables for layout plus zero or near zero code errors is gaining in significance for reasons beyond favorable search engine ranking.
Next, there is an emerging issue that is being ignored by the majority of web site designers, and that is accessibility. In short, equipment exists today that allow people with disabilities to browse the internet with devices specially designed to improve their experience. Voice synthesizers now read content in a choice of voices, and XHTML design techniques allow for this easily. These special devices depend on reading the hidden code used to create each page, and using tables or obsolete tags will mean defects or garbled output as the special reader sorts through the various extra code from the tables. Blind people have devices that print Braille dots on an output device so they can read page content, also. These accessibility issues are solved with a forward looking design using XHTML, yet there's more.
Handheld devices like iPods and cell phones are another aspect of accessibility that may cause problems for some web site owners. As these methods of surfing the internet gain in popularity, proper display of web sites on these devices may be an issue. The forward looking design assures that pages will display well on the widest range of devices, current and future, thus giving the site owner a broader audience rather than lost opportunity because their pages were not accessible.
There are more benefits to XHTML with CSS, including fewer lines of code to create the same effect as done in HTML with tables. This means pages will load faster, and the real page content is easier to index by search engines because it's not surrounded by excess code using tables. By comparison on a recent project, the old home page used over 500 lines of code. The revised version utilizes just 170 lines to display nearly identical content.
W3C, the Worldwide Web Consortium, the international body for establishing code standards for web design, strongly recommends that designers adopt XHTML with CSS and avoid tables for layout entirely. It takes less than a minute to check the code on your web site. Search in Google using the quotation marks for "The W3C Markup Validation Service", and then follow the link to W3C to check your web site for free with instant results.
In conclusion, the future is now when it comes to new computing devices used to browse the internet. Shifts in search engine strategy could be equally important. Plan now and avoid losing sleep worrying about your web site becoming obsolete. As a final tip, it makes sense to have a site review every 2 years with your web site designer to discuss advantages of emerging strategies.

Forging connections with reliable websites
If you find a quality website linking to yours that is closely related to yours in subject but is not a close competitor, you may want to exchange links. In other words, after you have seen how great that site is and how it can help educate people more about your products or services, you can offer the owner of that website a place in your website by means of a link. For example, if you sell diet foods online like low-fat bars and organic sauces, you might want to consider linking up with that nutrition site that has linked to your website.
Clearing up concepts without crowding your Web pages
For those in engineering services, there are some terms which a person with no knowledge of engineering may find alien or unclear. You know how it is; people are turned off by websites that they do not understand. If you find that it is necessary to explain some concepts but find it difficult to find a place in your own website, you can exchange links with an engineering organization with a glossary of terms that has linked to yours.
Giving thanks where it is due
Great websites that are linked to yours can add value to your own website especially if they are closely related to the service or product you are offering. Instead of thinking of these random links as luck and dismiss them simply as freebies you cannot help but having, give thanks where it is due. Exchange links, offer to arrange a payment system (this is especially in order if that site brought tremendous amounts of sales and traffic to your website by reviewing one of your products), or if it is an ecommerce site selling items that can be great accessories to your products, try to review and drive traffic to it.
Filtering unwanted referrers
If you pride yourself in putting up an excellent website with great content, surely you would not want totally unrelated and even discrediting sites linking up to you. If you sell music merchandise like instruments and memorabilia, it is highly discrediting to be linked to a site that allows pirated music downloads.
Enjoy these benefits and additional marketing power by joining internet marketing and affiliate networks like Click2Sell.EU. By doing these, you can control which affiliate advertise and link your websites while giving you power to ban, edit, and manage your settings. You control your website, it

Did you know that the average person will spend less than 15 seconds reading your webpage? So much for all that perfectly-precise text where you describe absolutely everything you do in loving detail! Guess what-no one's reading it. They're skimming. Are you skimming now?
A couple months ago I bought some website traffic analysis software so I could tell how my search engine placement is going and see what my popular pages were. I about fell over dead when I realized how quickly people click in and out, especially because I do some pay-per-click advertising that costs me over $1 per click! Being a detail-queen myself, I had to completely re-think my copy writing.
To be the most effective, your website copy should be written for 3 types of website browsers. If you make these small tweaks, you'll have your bases covered!
Tweak Number 1: Write for People Who Scan: Most people surfing the web are page scanners. To speak to them, employ a combination strategy for easy readability:
This is a brief but never the less valuable introduction into internet marketing; whether you're doing affiliate marketing or if your marketing you own website - READ ON!
This goes without saying but just in case; you're going to first need a website or other online selling platform, a Blog or MySpace account can be used as an alternative to a private website.
What ever the platform make sure you're happy to stick with it, expect to be using it for some time.
However you monetize it, make sure everything is working correctly; Adsense is picking up keywords, your affiliate links work, your Paypal link works etc.
If your site isn't working properly then there's no point in marketing it.
You want your website to convert (Take action that profits you) as many visitors as possible. Here are some handy ways of getting people to "Click"...
My top 3.
1. Write a product review
Facebook may not be as well known as other popular social networking websites, such as Yahoo! 360 or MySpace, but it is still popular. That popularity is mostly among high school students and college students, mostly because Facebook focuses on these individuals in particular. With Facebook, you are required to register for a specific network. That network can either include the high school or college which you attended or are currently attending. Once you have joined the website, you should easily be able to make contact with others who are in the same network.
The network in which you join can be considered an advantage of Facebook, as well as a disadvantage. See, Facebook does not work like most other social networking websites. Instead of being able to communicate with all site members, you are limited to contact with those that are in your particular network, the high school or college you that selected. The creators of Facebook state that this is for your own safety. Although it is safer for your profile and personal information to be viewed by a small number of individuals, you may not necessity want it to be that way.
Although a large amount of focus is placed on high school students and college students, Facebook has added another popular feature to their website. That feature is workplace networks. By joining a specific workplace network, you will be granted access to other community members who work for the same company as you. This feature is nice, especially since many companies have become large corporations or expanded across the country. You may be able to make contact and become friends with a long-distance coworker that you never knew you had.
Another aspect of Facebook that you may find inconvenient is their lack of available information, before you decide to become a community member. When viewing their online website, which can be found at www.facebook.com, it is hard to tell whether or not the site is free to use. Most online social networking sites will make this known right upfront, but Facebook does not. Aside from the price, you should easily be able to obtain additional information on Facebook, before making the decision to become a member. This additional information may include how Facebook works, why you should become a member, how the invite process works, and general rules and restrictions that are in place.
If you are interested in joining the Facebook community, you should do what you should do with all other social networking websites, research. By taking the time to research and examine everything that Facebook has to offer, you should be able to decide whether or not this popular networking community is what you were looking for. There is a good chance that it will be, but if not, do not worry. There are literally an unlimited number of other social networking websites that you can join.

Depending on whether or not the business owner does the work her- or himself or hires a professional web designer to do the job, knowledge of web construction is imperative. If the latter is the case, the expenses will naturally be higher, although some instructional software might be necessary for business owners to teach themselves, so that will have some cost as well. Those preparing the website should do personal analyses to determine will need to be paid and establish a budget to cover it.
This includes, too, the basic template, which is advised to be used for the home page. This tool can be purchased and downloaded from any of various sites online at a price falling anywhere from $30.00 to over $200.00. Before buying, however, one should weight the pros and cons of employing one ore more of these implants. This alone will definitely affect expenses to some extent, depending on which template is bought and how many.
Despite the cost, the webpage template has several advantages to making one's own. First of all, the template is professional looking in its visual quality. This will indeed inspire confidence in those who gaze upon it. There is also the consideration of preorganisational design. These templates accommodate the basic need of every single business: menus, title space, color and style, tables, and link icons for email, identity page and links space. Another innovation is the possibility of utilizing more than one template in constructing the entire site, which would illustrate diversity in the variety of style as displayed through each page having its own appearance. This would require more than one template to apply, although a single template can be modified as necessary. However, one page can bring consistency in appearance and arrangement to the site, as every page would look the same. In either case, cost will definitely come into play, and between them costs will undoubtedly vary.
For those who are building their own page, HTML and PHP knowledge, paint and photo shop, and clipart uploading will be necessary for implementing page coding. Just as much time will go into studying webpage design as it does in conceptualizing the business and getting own the Mission Statement, the Procedural Policies, even the budget itself.
It is for these and other reasons that the design, construction and price rely strongly and directly on the business owner, who it is, what that person's knowledge and skills are, and the person's personal preferences and funding. Once it is all determined, however, the next stage will be to laying out the entire webpage in detail to see what it will look like when completed. This will be the very first visual representation of the online business to emerge for anyone to see . . . .

There are millions of different business websites. Some web sites are simple while others are complicated, some are popular some are abandoned. Regardless of what your website looks like your visitors will expect certain components. First impressions are no less significant online as they are in our off-line existence. Therefore, you have to work hard to make sure that your visitors will find what they expect.
For example, if a visitor finds your websites searching for San Diego accountants, your web site better have something to do with accounting in the San Diego area. That message has to be loud and clear on your homepage. When a visitor lands on your homepage she should have no trouble determining what you do in a matter of seconds. Yes, you only have a few seconds to convince the visitor that your website is what she is looking for.
The Internet is a fast moving environment. So you have to make sure that your website loads quickly. Visitors will not waste their time waiting while all the pieces of your slow moving website becomes visible. If your website doesn't completely show in a few seconds you have work to do. You can reduce the size of your images, or find a hosting company that provides faster service. Installing a fancy video about your latest products would spice up your site but it may slow it down so much that you could end up losing many of your visitors. Remember visitors are more likely to help you succeed online than clever design.

However, if nobody visits your web site, it will not serve its purpose - which is to inform people about your company.
On the other hand, if there are a lot of visitors on your web site but nobody is enticed to buy your products or take advantage of the services that your company offers, then the web site will still be useless.
The key ingredient to a successful web site is getting leads. The purpose of leads is to guide the customers and prospective clients to your web site.
Here are some tips on how you can get successful leads to your web site:
1. Review the design and content of your web site. Once people are led to your place on the Internet, then the next thing that you need to do is keep them there.
- Make sure that the site tells people about the products and services that your company offers.
- The web site itself should be user-friendly. A visitor will be annoyed and will browse away from your company's web site if it has a lot of useless information and the links are not organized.
- More importantly, the web site should be visually pleasing and have eye-catching graphics, helpful articles and easy-to-follow links.
2. Conduct a study of your target market. Learn about their age and social group and location. If your customer base is mostly teens, check out their online forums to find out about their likes and dislikes, and their opinions.
If most of your prospective customers are regulars of this kind of web sites, you may actually join their online forums and give out your opinions but do not directly advertise.
What you can do instead is give your e-mail address and other contact information while posting on such forums.
You can also contact the creators of the web site for the online forums and ask them about your advertising options.
3. Build a mailing list to make your advertising campaign more effective.
You may employ paid and unpaid methods when building your list.
With the unpaid method, you are making an effort to convince people to give out their e-mail address.
Here, you would have a solid mailing list to make up your customer base because when people volunteer information, it only means that they are interested with your company.
On the other hand, there is a “paid” method of building your mailing list. With this, you actually shell out advertising money for your products to be promoted on popular web sites.
There are also "partner" web sites that would let you advertise for free, in return for a service or product that your company may provide. This is how affiliations are built towards a mutual, beneficial gain.
You may also convince your current customers to refer your company and web site to their friends and relatives to increase your mailing list.
Freebies, discounts, and coupons may be given out to customers who can give you a friend's e-mail address.
This should be an additional incentive, aside from the free mailings that they will receive from your company.
Follow these steps and you will be able to promote your business, find local and national customers and help your company grow through targeted advertising online.

SEO Delhi lunches their site approx 2-3 yrs ago to provide Freelance SEO services at most affordable cost. By which every one should be able to promote portal or site at minimum. It true that now a days SEO services are very expensive ,so middle or small level companies having less chances to be promoted on internet. That
Websites are perhaps the most overlooked vehicle of advertising for local, owner-operated businesses. Yes, every retailer needs one. Every dentist, lawyer, accountant and minister needs one. Every cafe, restaurant, coffee shop and nightclub needs one. Every wholesale supply company needs one.
Compared to the more traditional advertising mediums, the Internet has potential circulation figures and coverage area that can't be matched to any other medium. Everyone listed in yesterday's Yellow Pages needs to also be available on the internet today--it's where your customers expect to find you.
Every business has good reasons to have a well navigated, well structured and an appealing website. Though there's very little that can't be sold over the internet. More than 20 million shoppers are now online, purchasing everything from books to computers to cars to real estate to jet airplanes to natural gas to you names it.
Even if one's business is small and nothing much to do with online customers, still the presence of a website is appreciated and advised. This will create your presence on the web so that customers, potential employees, business partners and perhaps even investors can quickly and easily find out more about your business and the products or services you have to offer. With a well-designed site, your little operation can project the image and professionalism of a much larger company. The inverse is also true.
Either you're a one-man show or a 10,000-employee corporate giant; if you don't have a website, you're losing business to other companies that do. Every retailer and every manufacturer in every industry needs to have a Web site!
One more popular form of website is blog. It is like an online journal. The blog owner regularly post journal entries that readers can react to in a comment section. This is in contrast to a newsletter or static website that conveys one sided information. Bloggers here can write everything from personal to professional experiences and articles. Earlier people used to write their experiences and views in their diaries. But today's generation is open to share their views on every aspect of their life style with the world through blogs. This makes them popular in the internet world easily and gives them a chance to learn from others reaction on their views. It helps to develop a thought on issues of life and to create a practical attitude towards various aspects of life.
Blogging have given millions of people access to a powerful new medium

They are then able to continue shopping and browsing your website.
In addition, if a customer changes their mind about a particular product or service, they can easily remove that item from their shopping cart. Most shopping carts will allow customers to see how much money they are going to spend. As they add items to their cart, they can see the total adding up and can even estimate the shipping costs for their purchases.
Accept payments online from your customers. From your website you can accept payments in various forms depending upon the payment processing systems that you use.

A specialist car loans website will be able to search on your behalf from the information you give them to gather together several quotes from car finance companies which offer the best value for money and low rates of interest. Not only will they get you the best deals due to searching the car finance marketplace but they will also give you the key facts of each loan which makes comparing quotes easier.
It is essential that you read the key facts of any borrowing you are considering taking out as there can be added costs such as early repayment fees. The key facts will also show you how much the loan will cost in total, the interest added on and the monthly repayment.
Car finance companies offer different incentives to get you to take their loans but the rates of interest that they put on their sites can vary and be confusing. What might look like a very low rate could be quoted for weekly terms rather than annual and so the cost would be boosted up greatly over the year. A specialist will make comparing APR easier and should offer information regarding what to look for when it comes to comparing loans and when it comes to choosing the best deal possible.
If you have a perfect credit rating then car finance companies will look at you more favorably than someone who has a less than perfect rating and will reward you by offering the lowest rates of interest. Your credit rating is the number one factor that all lenders look at when deciding if you will be accepted for the loan. However all is not lost if your credit rating is less than perfect, there are car finance companies that specialize in offering finance to those with a bad credit rating.
A specialist website should ask for this information before looking for your loan because then they can tailor their search to your circumstances. For instance a poor credit rating might mean looking at car finance companies that specialize in offering a bad credit loan. While you cannot get the best rates of interest if you do have a bad credit score, a specialist website will be able to look around at those they know offer bad credit loans and will get you the best possible rate of interest for your circumstances.
The key facts and small print that come with a loan will vary between car finance companies as will the rates of interest and the deal, so it is imperative that you compare these along with comparing the quotes. The small print can make a huge difference to the outcome of the loan and you have to take the time to go over it with a fine tooth-comb.

Everybody would love to make lots of money quickly, working from home, and only doing a few hours of work per week. I've spent the past two years trying to find a great way of doing this. Only over the course of the past few months have I found any "get rich quick" programs worth buying. I've been trying to make money online for a long time. I had a few small websites, but they never made much more than a few hundred per month. It was easy money and didn't require much work on my part, but I knew there were people out there doing better than I was and I knew I could do as well as them.
Now, I've seen a lot of "get rich quick" programs. Most of these people make claims about earning $2000/day with Google or something similarly insane. Almost all of these people are complete liars. Even if they were making $2000/day with Google AdSense, it'd be because they had high- traffic websites with a lot of quality content. I'd know, because in one whole month, I never even made half of what they promised I'd make daily with their programs. Maybe you've already been scammed by one of these fraudsters. Anyway, I finally got sick of what was being offered.
I decided I'd look through the all of the "get rich quick" programs I could find and see if there were any that were actually legitimate. I found that there were owners selling their programs for well over $100, but the information in them could be found almost anywhere online for free. Additionally, they all contained out-of-date information, had no e-mail support, no money back guarantees, and broken links in the downloads section.
In conclusion, almost all of the programs I found were completely useless. The owners knew it, but they couldn't care less about their customers since they didn't offer refund policies! Amazingly, while looking through all of the programs, I actually did find a few legitimate programs. They were run by ordinary people like you and me, and they had found some great methods of making money from their home by doing very little work.
I spent some time working with those programs, and my income is now ten times what it used to be. These programs provided a large amount of great information on how to make extra money on your computer doing very little work. Numerous customers had provided great feedback and reviews for their products. Many of them have started to make money just days after buying!
Their programs have excellent prices, and the authors have a group of paid staff who are dedicating to helping you or providing assistance if you need any. I must say I was amazed! If you do decide to purchase any of the programs listed below, I recommend you join quickly. Most of the owners tell me they are getting an overwhelming number of sales and plan on raising prices in the near future, so order while prices are still low!
