A guide to making a web page

One of the best ways to get information out to people is by having a website on the Internet. Websites can be for anything you like, from businesses to advertising a brand. They can be very simple to make and can even host online for free. There are many options available if you are willing to spend a little bit of cash. This article will show you how to set up your own website.

Getting started

You can easily start online by getting free web hosting to make your own website. You can easily search on Google for free hosting and make a choice of what you prefer the most. You will typically be given a sub domain like Mywebsite.freewebhosting.com. Although this does not look very professional, free hosting is an excellent way to see how your website looks like online, and you can buy your own domain for a couple of pounds each year when you are ready.

Designing your website

How to create your own website There are many programs available for helping you to build a website such as Microsoft Frontpage or Adobe Dreamweaver. They also provide you with useful templates to help with the layout of your website. If you know HTML, you can even write an entire website using a notepad. The layout is very important as it makes your website looks professional and user-friendly. The easiest way to do this is to make sure that there's plenty of space between the information and pictures, and a simple navigation bar on each page is useful. A navigation bar which stays at the same place and which offers links to every part of the website is very important.

Getting noticed

To get your website noticed by others, you need to be able to advertise it across the Internet for other people to see. You can go to Google or Bing's link submission pages so that your website will show up on the Google searches when certain keywords are searched for.
If you're willing to pay to get noticed, then you can become part of the Google adverts, where people are shown adverts and links to your website when looking at similar websites which Google adverts have enabled.

Generating revenue

Sometimes, you may want to make up for the money you spent on hosting your site. If it's non-profitable or you just want some extra cash, this can easily be done by placing adverts on your page which other people will pay for. Google offers services for this and you are paid depending on how many people click on the adverts which are displayed on your website.
