Website Starters: Personal Web PagesWritten by Sid John
Some people are looking for a webpage as a quick way to express themselves or to keep in touch with friends and family. Fortunately, there are many options to setup a personal web page online.
Blogs are a good way to start
Free blogs from services like Blogger, Blog-city and others are a good way to setup a personal web page. They offer lots of space, good indexing in search engines if you desire and platforms are easy to use. Just do a quick sign up, add your content, a few pictures and you’re done.
Traditional web page
Yahoo Geocities, Bravenet and a few other online services still offer free web pages for anyone. In addition, these larger communities will give you lots of tools such as guest books, library of pictures, animations, chat rooms, scripts and millions of people that are already listed.
Website Conversion Rate: More Keywords Equals More SalesWritten by Joe Duchesne
Your website conversion rate should concern you. This simply refers to how many visitors to your website it takes before you make a sale. It is called conversion because you are 'converting' a casual visitor into a buyer. Website conversion should concern you because when you can increase rate at which your website visitors convert into buyers, you make more money without increase your costs. Let me explain.
If you get one sale for every one hundred visitors to your sales page on your website, you effectively have a conversion rate of one percent. It may be possible for you to make simple changes to your website that can result in an increased number of sales conversions.
So if you can get two people to convert to a sale per hundred instead of only one, you've effectively doubled your sales without increasing your costs, your traffic or your effort. It's for this reason that your website conversion rate should be something you know and are working to improve.
So how can I improve my conversion rate?
Improve your conversions by making changes to headline of your website. The very first text that appears on a web page will most often determine if someone keeps reading or clicks away. The headline you use should speak to visitor and make them want to keep reading to find out what you have to say.
