Internet development from the beginning

I started in web development in the late 90’s writing HTML by hand in a simple editor.  Since then I have used a lot of editors that are mostly gone now.  This includes the ever so popular Dreamweaver, but now that the world has standardized on a consistent look, so even that is depreciated and sees little use.  There are other ways to make a website, but WordPress has continued to improve and maintain the approval of the many.

WordPress has become king of web development and even I recommend it now as a way to get started fast that will update easyily.

The first step in web development is building a good website that will work well with the search engines and allow your business to grow through normal searches.  Adding eCommerce to your website can be accomplished using a WordPress “Plugin” or using a dedicated shopping cart like Magento, or Opencart.  The eCommerce processing options are numerous and mostly free to use.

It’s always best to start with a solution that you can manage yourself as needed.

Part of your website development should include setting up the various social media networks as needed for your business and adding the links to them to your website.  This is dependent on how you will be marketing to your customers which I can assist you with.

Multiple search engines expect websites to signup in order to verify ownership and improve search results for your business.

The final step is to check your website search engine optimization on a regular basis to encourage the major search engines to list your website near the top.  It’s also a good time to consider using the available advertising services that charge per click based on keywords we generate together.
