Step 1 Choice of Package

Select your package choice.

Step 2-Title, Keywords, and Description Choosing a Title, finding suitable Keywords, and writing a Description

KEYWORDS - Keywords are used by search engines such as yahoo or excite to catalog web pages. These are words or phrases that describe what a visitor to your website would find. Keywords are not visible to someone visiting your site but they are written into the computer code. How to choose keywords:

  • Brainstorm a list of words apply to your business.
  • The best way to confirm the keywords you have brainstormed is to try them on a major search engine (i.e.. Yahoo or Excite) and then travel to the sites you find in that search. Do the sites you find with these keywords match what you hope to find; sites like yours? If so you are on the right track. Otherwise try again with other keywords.
  • It helps to have quite a few, but it is also important to prioritize your list. List in rough order of importance
  • do not repeat words, even small words such as "the".
  • write your list with no commas or returns

TITLE - The Title of your web site will be displayed at the top of a visitor’s browser. The Title of your website will help search engines and therefore your customers / audience find you.

  • Try to use your best keywords in the title.
  • Avoid listing the same word multiple times in a row since some engines may penalize for this.
  • Make your title interesting and "compelling" to the reader to convince them why they should click there.

DESCRIPTION - The description is a short ( 25 word/ 200 character) description of the content of your website. The description will be seen when a search engine brings up your website. Write a description that will make someone want to click on your page versus a number of similar pages.

Step 3 - The layout of the site

This is the part of site design where you let us know what you would like to have included in your site. Here are some suggestions of what you might include
  • home page
