How to Create a Website for Beginners provides the building blocks for creating a money making website in order to make passive income from the internet.


How to Create a Website

Creating a website is easy for beginners. However, creating a website that makes passive income from the internet requires considerable thought. In fact, there are eight areas you need to think through before you start creating your website.

1. Your Website Builder

Creating a website requires a web builder. There are lots of options here, but at the end of the day you need to choose one of the following three.

  • Site Build It - Online website builder with all the tools for building an online business.
  • XsitePro 2 - Easy to use website builder with all the tools to create money making websites.
  • Dreamweaver CS4 - Dreamweaver CS4 is the industry standard. You will need to know html. However, it is the most flexible to use.

In summary, if you are a beginner, then Site Build It and XsitePro 2 will help you learn the processes of creating websites that make money. Dreamweaver CS4 requires a basic knowledge of html. If you are in it for the long haul, then Dreamweaver CS4 would be a great investment.

Anyhow, check them out and decide which one is for you.


2. Your Website Hosting

Web hosting is necessary if you want to create a website. Web hosting is where you put your website files and information. Web hosting is very inexpensive these days. All you need to do is choose one from the following three web hosting sites.

  • Bluehost - unlimited domains on one account for $6.95 per month is great value.
  • HostMonster - unlimited domains on one account for $6.95 per month is again great value.
  • Web Hosting Pad - unlimited domains on one account for $3.95 per month is the cheapest of the three.

In summary, every web hosting site has its good and bad points. However, at the end of the day you simply need to choose the one that suits you best, if it be Bluehost, HostMonster, or Web Hosting Pad.

By the way, if you use Site Build It, web hosting is all inclusive.


3. Your Website Name

The name of your website (ie. your domain name or your URL) will be important when you consider the search engine optimisation principles.

For example, you may want to create a website about model aircraft. In fact, you want your website to be about How To Build Model Aircraft. Therefore, I would use the domain name: www.how-to-build-model-aircraft.com. The hyphens allow the search engine to see how-to-build-model-aircraft as individual words rather than one long word.

See search engine optimisation below for more information on the importance of naming your website correctly.


4. Your Website Design

Your website design is linked to your website builder.

If you decide to go with Site Build It, then your website design is as simple as choosing the design and start building.

If you decide to go with XsitePro 2, then your website design is as simple as choosing a template and start building.

If you decide to go with Dreamweaver CS4, then you will need to design your own template.

5. Your Website Content

Website content is usually relative to the purpose of your website. Nevertheless, your website content must be structured around specific keywords. After all, search engines love websites that are structured around specific keywords.


6. Your Website Optimisation (SEO)

Your website optimisation has two focal points - onpage SEO and offpage SEO.

Onpage Search Engine Optimisation focuses on your web page. The design of your web page and the content of your web page will affect your SERP (Search Engine Results Page).

Onpage Search Engine Optimisation is about effective keywords, titles, descriptions and placement of keywords on your web page. Of course, this involves the design of your web page also.

Offpage Search Engine Opitmisation focuses on your backlinks to your website.

You can use link farming or link wheel. Click on link wheel to see an example.

In summary, onpage search engine optimisation contributes about 20% to 30% towards your PR (Page Rank); whereas, offpage search engine optimisation contributes about 70% to 80% towards your PR.


7. Your Website Backlinks

Don't confuse PR (Page Rank) with SERP (Search Engine Results Page).

Page Rank is a number given to your web page, which can be from 0 to 10 with 0 being the least and 10 the greatest.

Search Engine Results Page is the page of results on any search engine after you have typed in a keyword to be searched.

Backlinks to your website will influence your Page Rank and ultimately your Search Engine Results Page.

So work hard at getting backlinks to your website.


8. Your Website Monetization

There are several ways to monetize your websites. Again, it comes down to the purpose of your website.

However, if you were simply wanting to make money online from your websites, then there are two inexpensive ways to do this - google adsense and affiliate marketing.
