There are just three steps you need to take to ensure your web site
succeeds. If you follow these three steps your web site will get
visitors who come back time and time again. Plus you'll get noticed by
the search engines - and you'll be able to earn money from your web
One constant theme that emerges from the most successful businesses and
organizations is simplicity. Keep things simple and you will succeed.
Try to do too much, or complicate things and you'll more than likely
fail. So, the three step process for Internet success is simple, making
it much more likely that you will succeed.
STEP ONEFocus. Decide precisely what your web site will be about. For instance,
say your interest is in cars. If you produce a web site about cars,
you'll be competing against millions of others and you'll not get
noticed. Narrow down your focus to something specific - perhaps
something like "the history of the design of Italian cars". The more
specific your theme, the better. Don't try to do too much - a single
narrow theme is what you need for success. If you want to cover a broad
subject, break it down into several narrow themes for separate web
STEP TWOContent. Fill your site with content. The information you provide needs
to be focused directly on your theme. You may need to write the main
pages yourself, but there will be articles you can use from ezine
directories and from private label sites that will help you fill out
your web site. The more content you add, the better. Plus, be sure to
add articles and information to your site every week. That will get
people coming back to your site and it will also make sure the search
engines notice you.
STEP THREELinks. Get links from other sites, but don't try to get links from just
anyone. Instead, get links from relevant sites. In our example this
would be other car sites, or sites on aspects of Italian history. A
link from a friend's site on another subject is of no value. So, search
the web for web sites that are relevant to your interest and then ask
the webmasters to link to your site, in return for providing a link to
them on your site.
With these three steps you are assured of online success. That's
because these are the key steps taken by all of the most successful
sites you encounter.
One other thing, by adding in Google AdSense elements to your pages
your web site will generate cash for you. The more content rich and
highly focused your site, the better the response you'll get to the
adverts you carry. And that means more money paid to you by Google.
