5 Lessons Learned By a Young Webmaster

These are tips for webmasters from the Informative Post

Before you think about getting into this, make sure that you do not mind sitting at a computer 8 hours during work, and then come home and spend another 4 or 5 hours on your home computer. It can not be something forced, you must want to do it!

2. Choose a Niche that Interests You

When brainstorming ideas about building your website, do not just think about what could bring you in the most cash. That often leads to disappointment … Read More

10 Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) Tips – For Beginners

1. Never Do No SEO

No SEO means very limited visitors to your website. If you do not implement SEO the search engines cannot rank your website with relevant keywords. They may not even index the website for months. Leaving you hanging around waiting for traffic that will never appear.

2. On Page – Off Page SEO Needed

You will not achieve great success without doing them both. Many would argue on-page SEO and off-page SEO are just as important as each other. Your site can be optimised and ranking but off-page can sky rocket the traffic and make your site have authority (another key factor to ranking higher in the search engines).

3. Do Not Leave SEO For Another Day
