Build Your SEO Website

For those who loves DIY, you can now build your SEO Website.

Website is your online store for your customers, your storefront.  Building a nice looking and professional website is important.  Making sure that customers can find you online is as equally or most important.  That is when SEO comes in the picture.  SEO is searche engine optimization and the method to rank your website in the organic manner.

Due to securities issues, we recently moved our website hostings, and here we share with you the best service providers based on our past experiences.  It is totally up to you if you wish to take up the services from the same service providers.

Here are the steps to build your own SEO Website.

  1. Register your domain, website urls.  You can register with the service provider recommended or through namecheap.
  2. Register your hosting for your website.  It is important to get a very good and reliable web hosting to ensure that your website are up 100% or 99.9% of the time and secured! (At the bottom of this article is where we host our websites.  you can choose the free website builder and hosting or the paid one. Check out the differences in the table chart.)
  3. If your domain registration and web hosting purchases are from different service provider, make sure to point the domain to the right web hosting server.
  4. We personally prefer wordpress theme platforms as they are SEO friendly and are easy to use too. So, quick install your wordpress log-in.  Some hosting company requires you to do this manually, while others are automatic with the press of a button.
  5. Authenticate or include your google analytics for your website.  Set up a gmail and you can easily create and use Google Analytics for your website.
  6. Include or sign up for Google Webmaster tool with your gmail as this will give you specific insights and what to correct or do with your website.
  7. Choose your wordpress theme to start creating and designing your SEO Website
  8. Install Plug-ins like All-in-One-SEO,  Contact Forms and other relevant plug in that you need for your website.
  9. Change your password at the top right hand of wordpress
  10. Start adding pages, posts, categories and tags for your website.  You can always start with the basics like: About Us, Contact Us, Privacy Policy, FAQ and etc for your pages.
  11. Once the basic structure and content of your website is ready, start submitting your url to search engines like google, yahoo, bing and etc.

We cannot stress enough on website securities.  Many websites were destroyed due to lack of securities.  For the security of your website:

  1. Always make sure you have daily or weekly back up for your website
  2. Proper firewall included for your websites
  3. Securities plug-in where appropriate
  4. All plugins and wordpress updated on a regular basis, monthly or quarterly
  5. Choose themes and plug-ins that are trusted
  6. House your websites with trusted hosting providers
