I started promoting websites in 1996 and learned HTML to make a links page to help in the promotion of that first site. I've created websites, but I am not an artist or designer (as you can tell from this site). Yet the websites I create often get higher rankings in the search engines than much more attractive sites.
Still, an artist or designer could apply the same principles and come out with a site that not only ranks high but also looks superb. Yet most don't. Most don't know or care what happens to a site after they finish creating it. If they did, they would spend the time to learn and to pay attention to information on promoting a site. But that is a full time job in itself.
- It bothers me that so many people do end up with a lovely site that has to be redone so that it can accomplish two simple goals:
- Usability: A site 99.999% of people on the net can use without downloading a plug in or switching browsers or platforms (which most people won't do just to use your site).
- Findability: A site that can be found by people looking for what that site offers.
- I am not, at the moment, seeking work, but if you have a question, feel free to email me. If all it takes is an answer off the top of my head, I will be glad to answer it for free. And if it is a general question that I have left out of this site, maybe I will add the information to the site.
- My own hobbies including websites on some TV shows:
