You have just started a business and launched your website.
The way the internet is now it is so easy to get a domain name, a hosting plan and have your website up and running in a day or two. The question you want to ask yourself is, now that I have a website is it working for me or is it being a lazy employee just sitting there doing nothing?
My wife and I wanted to start a childrens boutique clothing and toy site about a year ago. We were so excited about the idea of having our own site and selling items online to bring in some extra money into the house. We got our retail license from the state and started finding clothing and toy vendors to get our items from to sell on our site. We started setting the site up while we lined everything up. We found a few drop ship vendors and others we had to buy the items from for our site. Again we were so excited.
After getting our site set up and getting everything on it we thought all right let the sales start rolling. Well as you would probably guess nothing happened. We had no idea about SEO and Keyword research, let alone linking structure and backlinking. Our website had few visitors and no sales. We eventually opened an Ebay store and started selling our merchandise that way. Without knowing how to correctly setup our website we failed from the start.
The biggest thing I want you to take away from this post is my mistakes. When your ready to set up your website be sure to do your research first. Learn all you can about SEO and linking or get advice from us that do. Also know what pagerank, link juice and Alexa rank are and how to affect them. If I had known then what I know now that site would be very successful and worth a lot of money today.
