A Blog to share your knowledge and experiences
An Event’s website for a conference, wedding or birthday
Your website should have a clear focus as what it is about for both for visitors as well as search engines like Google and Bing etc.
Get the right domain name
One of the most important aspects of making a website is getting the right domain name. Domain name is your website’s address, what a visitor types on their browser address bar to reach your website. You should try and get a domain which isn’t too difficult to spell. It should be easy to remember and if possible a short name. Avoid numbers and special characters in the domain name. Your domain name should incorporate your brand’s name so that people can easily identify it. Sometimes it makes sense to have domain names containing your products or services name which helps in SEO.

Search Engine Optimization is a science to optimize a website to make it easier for search engines like Google to index a website and show in top search results. Search Engines need good quality content so that’s what we do in SEO.
SEO requires a lot of time, patience and persistence to give you the desired results. Google relies upon many factors to build up its algorithms to rank websites. Some of which include page speed, content quality, your industry’s competitiveness or number of backlinks (other websites linking to your website) etc.
These steps can increase your website’s chances for a better ranking:
Identify your keywords: Ask yourself what a potential visitor for your website may search for on Google. Once you have identified a couple of such keywords try to add them in your content, page title and description.
Alt text: Google bots cannot read your images and other media files hence its a good idea to add alt text or description to those media so that bots understand what the media is about.
