A lot of SEO books repeatedly promise that you can dominate the search engines without knowing a thing about link building. These books make promises that in reality are far too good to be true. The truth is if you do not know a thing about link building or how it works; you are going to have a hard time being successful online.
Step 1: Have an Outstanding Website & Save on it with Coupon Codes!
First things first, you are always going to need a good website with good content. If you haven’t put in the work on your website, no amount of marketing is going to help that. Make sure that is set up as best as it can be first (there are services out there that will review your site and make suggestions on how to improve), and then get to work on promoting the site. You can save a lot of money on hosting by using promo codes as well. We personally recommend using a2hosting as it’s an excellent service, and if you use an a2 hosting coupon you can save on their already very fair prices. Their speed and reliability are tough to beat, definitely better than a lot of other budget-friendly hosts out there. You can also check out godaddy’s offerings, they have inexpensive domain registrations and hosting as well as great introductory offers.

WordPress is one of the most widely used off-the-shelf solutions for quickly setting up a fully functional website. One of the main reasons for this popularity is the plugin system, which allows the base software to extend its capabilities in thousands of ways. From image galleries to e-commerce to social media integration, there’s likely to be a plugin available to suit your needs, moving WordPress far away from its origins as a pure blogging solution.
However, the main strength of this plugin system is also a potential weakness. Anyone can develop their own plugin and release it for others to use, and while the WordPress plugin repository performs some basic checks on the software submitted to it, there’s no real guarantee that any particular plugin will be written to a high standard. This can easily result in “badly behaved” plugins conflicting with each other, or simply running slowly because of poor development techniques.
An Example: Coupon Code Plugins
We had some trouble with one of our sites when we decided to run a coupon code plugin as a way to add value to users. We supplied a way to use a NordVPN coupon code for readers of our blog who also happened to be webmasters (thanks to Dealfly for supplying us with these promo codes). What happened is, after we installed and activated this plugin, there was a massive slowdown in our website’s performance.
After troubleshooting, we discovered that there was nothing wrong with the plugin itself, but that it conflicted with the WordPress theme we were using. We were able to change the theme, and the website ended up working beautifully afterwards.
If you find that your WordPress installation is running more slowly than you’d like, then one of the first places to look for a solution is within … Read the rest
No matter how experienced they are, web designers are still capable of making mistakes from time to time. To be honest, this just shows that they are indeed human and there are numerous occasions where the errors can be attributed to just a number of relatively common mistakes. However, for anybody that is involved in the industry, it makes a lot of sense to just educate yourself on the main errors that occur so you can then take the appropriate action to avoid them.
So, that being said, let us begin.
1. Not Being Economical in Your Business
Things like domains and web hosting are expensive, and too often web designers will create websites for their clients and pay top dollar for it. For one, you can get a domain name for under a dollar for most registrars, and even thetop 10 rated companies for hosting charge under $5/month.
But you just pass that expense down to your client? First off, overcharging your client is a quick way to lose clients, and secondly: you could still charge them the ‘rip-off’ hosting rates you were originally charging, and then spend a fraction of that on the website itself. It makes no sense to intentionally pay more when you don’t have to.
2. Issues with Color and Contrast.
If you are a designer and you are unaware of the color theory concept, then web design is going to become rather difficult. If the color combinations are unable to work in harmony, then it is going to make the website tough to read. If this is the case, then visitors will give up in next to no time and go elsewhere rather than try to wade through this website that is hurting their vision.
Different colors reflect different meanings. Red is seen as … Read the rest
Getting traffic to your website is one of the most important aspects of internet marketing. Most people underestimate the power of driving traffic to a website and the common people would not understand the importance of web traffic.
If you think about it in the offline world, when we rent an office or a retail place, what do you think the factors that influence the rental cost? It is none other than the traffic of the location. If the location of the shop is located at a busy area where many people would pass by the shop everyday, then the rental cost would be higher. However, if there is no one passing by the shop, then the rental for the location would be significantly lower.
Let’s look at another example –
If we want to advertise on the newspaper, we got to pay a certain amount of money to put our ads on it. The price you are paying is always proportional to the amount of visibility of your ads. If there are many people reading the particular newspaper, the more you are going to pay for it.
Now if you own a certain of amount of traffic online, then you can charge advertisers for a certain sum of money for them to advertise on your website.
Do you understand how lucrative traffic is to a website or even to any businesses?
In this page, you will discover the common ways to drive traffic to your website. And you can start getting targeted visitors to your website with these strategies.
Basically, we can divide the web traffic strategies into Free and Paid. You may like to choose free traffic sources rather than the paid ones but here is the catch, most free sources are not as easy as it sounds … Read the rest
