How to obtain a website on the cheap.
Many people wrongly believe that you have to spend a huge amount of money to obtain an internet prescence. In my opinion for a basic website, you should only be looking to pay around £100, to have a website built. The amount of competition in the internet web design sector means that there are some great deals to be found, if you are willing to be patient and to make lots of phone calls.
To find these deals, my advice would be to first of all, look on the auction website, ebay. I have seen many people offering affordable web design services here. You can also try internet search engines or the Yellow Pages.
Website promotion tips.
I am sure that most people who have a website are looking for an increase in traffic to their website or an increase in their google page rank. In general the higher the page rank you have, the more visitors you are likely to get.
To increase this page rank it is important to build up the number of backward links your website has. You can do this by e-mailing other websites preferably in the same business sector as your own and asking if they would be willing to exchange links with your site. This however can be very time consuming and at times can have little reward.
I believe the best way of promoting your website, which is also cost free, is by writing articles like the one you are reading here. By submitting these articles to article websites, other webmasters are then able to use your article on their website, thus giving you an extra link. This is because you are able to add your information and web address in the author bio at the bottom of the page. You also obtain a one way backward link from the article website which accepted the article.
You may also want to consider google adwords. This is a form of pay per click where you pay to appear on the right side of the search results in the paid advertising section of the google search engine for a specific key phrase. Always remember not to spend more on the advertising than you are likely to earn from the website.
If you would like to earn extra money from your website you may want to consider google adsense. This is where google put ads onto your website. When your visitors click on the ads you get paid.
