The need to have your website smartphone compatible has become a necessity in order to keep up with your competition.

Website Navigation And SEO

The most important element of any website or blog is CONTENT. Unique content is always going to be king. The second most important is NAVIGATION. A well organized website allows your visitors to find what they are looking for quickly. If a site has a poor navigation system it reduces the likelihood potential customers or clients will stay on your site. Well structured navigation will also help the search engines to index the pages throughout your site.

Planning your website structure prior to developing can help eliminate the need for restructuring later on. To create an effective navigation system ask yourself these questions first:

  • Who am I building the site for? (Clients, Customers, Informational, etc)
  • What do I want to accomplish by building a site?
  • Where do I want my visitors to ultimately end up on my site?
  • When a visitor shows up will they find what they need?
  • Why did a visitor come to my site?

These questions, when answered, will help you determine what type of content you need/want and help you organize the content through navigation.

Navigation does not just refer to menus on your website or blog, it also refers to links throughout your site in the content or articles themselves. These links are part of your “Internal Linking System” and are essential to a well structured website. When setting up internal links think about the key words and phrases people will use to search for you or your products and use these within your links to assist in SEO also.

How To Make Money With Google – The Truth

Everyone wants to make money. Right? Well people make money, and lots of it everyday on the Internet. One way to monetize your own personal websites and blogs is through advertising for other people on YOUR OWN websites and blogs. The ad to the left is a Google Adsense. Adsense Ads help  pay for the operation of this blog. Google has a program just for that purpose. It’s called Adsense. Anyone that has a Google account has probably at least heard of Adsense. If your don’t have a Google account you can get one here.

Personal sites can include your own unique url website, blogs, or just ezine articles that you publish with good relevant information that people would be interested in. Good content is key to any ad campaign.

How it’s done

In plain easy to understand terms I will describe the process.

The three elements you will need are an Adsense account through Google,, a web page to put your content on, and GOOD CONTENT. I can’t stress enough the importance of good content.

To get an Adsense account you need to have a Google account. Get one here
Then sign up for the Adsense account.. You must be approved and it takes a few weeks.

If you own a web page, blog, or website you already have a place for your content. If you don’t, you can get Blogger at Google . Blogger is  free blogging software  that you can create pages with. Blogging is nothing more than a web log of information.

If you prefer a more professional blogging platform such as WordPress you can get it here. The software installation is free with your paid hosting that you can get here.

Once you have your content written you can go into your Adsense account and and create your ads to place on your pages. When you are done with your ad type the html code will be generated. Insert the generated code into your pages and your done.

Aesthetic Marketing

Aesthetic marketing is something not often put into the equation of a well marketed website. It is extremely important your site has a professional look and feel. First impressions are lasting impressions and can make or break you. The two major elements that will affect the aesthetics of your site are color and layout.

Color schemes that are pleasing and appealing should be chosen for your site. If you have branding with a color scheme in place it will help determine what colors would work for you. If you don’t have any type of branding or have no idea what colors work well together you can use our color picker (only works in (IE) Internet Explorer) to help develop an appealing color scheme.

To decide what type of  layout will work well for you can be quite a tedious process. There are many different types of layout. There are Single or one (1) column, two (2) column, three (3) column, horizontal navigation, vertical navigation, or a combination of both horizontal and vertical. One way to help you determine what will work well for you is to search the internet for sites that are easy for YOU to navigate and that you find appealing.  Ask a friend or two to do the same and between all the choices you come up with your should have a pretty good idea of what will work for your site.

Keep in mind, not everyone has the same view as to what is appealing. It is important to get the opinions of others once you have decided on an aesthetically pleasing site.

Color, layout, and ease of navigation are 3 factors to consider when laying out your site.
