10 Tips for a Successful Website

1) Surf the Web: this advice may seem simplistic, but it is certain that a thorough knowledge of the web will save a lot of time then. We can find inspiration, examples of sites that we like, others rather displease us, and especially the advice of experienced webmasters already. In particular most of the answers to the questions you will ask during your creation you will find forums for webmasters.
2) Think and target your project: what will you put in your site? What are the technical and artistic skills? How much time can you devote to the development of the site? So many questions it is useful to ask before embarking.
3) Treat a topic that interests you: a site is often a long-term experiment. You will have much to heart enrich the subject might interest you.
4) Create content: yes! This is the hardest, but the most important too. The content (articles, photos, videos...), your own website will be its main asset, the "core" of your site. You will then be supplemented by other services (directory, forum, ads...).
Treat your spelling, many users are sensitive, and you will be better understood.
5) Pay a domain name and hosting: free accommodation although some are good, buy a domain name and hosting then you will avoid many troubles (unable to install scripts, slow, pub and more...).
It is better to buy right the first time online, as a relocation site, and a url change, will lose a lot of traffic.
6) Ease of navigation: important topics and hospitality must be easily accessible from all pages of the site. Try well highlighting the site-specific content.
7) Integrate your advertising: If you display advertising on your site, find the balance so that your ads are visible enough to be paid
And discrete enough so that they do not leak your users (that which proves much less paying theme). An image pub max per screen, a popup max per page...
8) Find referrals: to generate traffic to your site, it will make that other sites link to yours. Search sites in the same field as yours, and propose it in the directory or the top site if the site offers, or write to the webmaster to build a partnership.
9) Enhance your site: the life of a site just starts for the first time online. Throughout its growth, you add new content, new services, create a new version of the design, interface... and so want to give your users to return regularly to your site.
Provide a simple procedure to add the content, and menus that accompany it, to lose the least amount of time to this task.
10) Learn from your users: thanks to a form, forum, comments or other exchange interface, your users will be able to express their criticisms and expectations, give you ideas to improve your site.
