This is kind of a constant step, just like you wont have to do
steps one and two again, you'll probably have to do this one plenty to make up
for it! Its important to keep things fresh and up-to-date so updating your
sites is definitely benefitial and worthwhile!! Blogs on the other hand need
nearly constant attention, if people have nothing further to read about they'll
go looking for it somewhere else...
So, basically, always keep updating your sites, they're like
your little mini businesses treat them as such and give them the attention they
need in order to grow and work better for you!
When you have some money coming in you might want to register
some google adwords to drive customers to your site. Google makes it very easy
to manage your budget and your ads' performance, etc so its well worth it even
Post your site on as many link exchange programs as you can fit
on your page(s) try to spread them out over all your pages so it doesnt look

Find blogs, groups, discussion boards, anywhere that people are
talking and participate in the conversation, find creative ways of slotting in
blatent advertising with clever witty conversation and humour but again dont be
annoying or they'll just kick you off, and then you will know.
Send all your friends, family members, long lost acquaintances,
social network friends and as many people as you can an e-mail or some other
message asking them to visit your site, maybe ask them to give a quick review
or try something cool, anything interesting, also in the message ask if the

This can be done on a recurring basis but dont become annoying
otherwise they'll just mark you as spam and you'...
Displaying ads on your site. Check out Advertising on your
Site/Blog for more. Google or Bidvertiser will crawl your site and its content
and display ads that are somehow relevant to either the site as a whole or
specific content on your site.
In my view every site on the web should have Google Ads on it,
if people come to your site why not give them as many options as possible, and
earn from it at the same time!!!
Google analytics provides detailed analysis about your site(s).
Everything from number of visitors, new visitors, returning visitors, where in
the world they came from, where on the net they were directed to you fom, etc,
etc. Search for Google Analytics in Google, cant be missed!
Another truly indespensable tool for any website or blog!!!
In short this is when you advise Google's search robots about
your site so they can come can have a good look around so they can add your
sight into their index. Google is far better at explaining the ins and outs of
this so visit their site and check it out. Just search for Webmasters Tools in
Google and it'll come up.

Either log on to your free website making profile with
Synthasite or someone similar or get your web designer into your office and
start getting plans onto paper. Layout exactly what content is going to be
covered and decide on the best ways to present that within your current
constraints, one of which would be the web designer if you're like me at all.
Then start putting it together. I've found that putting a
website or blog together is really more of an evolving process. There's not
Right this is where the creative juices should start flowing,
preferably sooner rather than later. This is where you decide on what kind of
site/blog you want to creat. Do you want to start the worlds best online
shopping mall, write your life's work for all to view written "live"
so to speak, perhaps a simple website for your church cell group. The

on just about anything and everything now-a-days, all you need to ...
