Build A Website And Then What?


Questions, of the day :

Build a Website and then what?
How to make money online?

Two issues that need to get an answer so you can get serious results. What’s the sense of having a website if you’re not getting the results you want. Not only will we look at the aspect of building a website but also one that accomplishes your goals which may be to earn money or just simply get your information out there.

build a website andThe first part as we start will be to deal with building your website then move on to what is next. In the past, websites were created from software packages where you would have been required to get into programming and piecing your site together. As time moved on you could get templates which still needed programming but made the process of building a website much quicker.

Today you can click a few buttons and have the whole back end of a website created without you knowing how to code or do any programming. The amount of time this saves has gone from hours of work not to mention the time it takes somebody to learn how to program to minutes or even seconds depending on what machine you use and the software package with the hosting company they have.

One of the largest website building platforms to date which is what I switched over to from Dreamweaver and Flash is WordPress. The advantages of this newer platform are how you can make a few clicks to build the whole back-end of your website requiring you to code nothing and being able to change the total appearance of your site with an entirely new theme in minutes. Depending on the theme you chose you may be required to adjust a few things. Having a new theme was the same as changing your template in the earlier days except back then meant re-coding all your data over yourself by taking hours or days of work depending on the size of your site.

Just to get a website set up took considerable time compared to today. The one thing that has not changed is the process to build a website and what is required to get exposure. Getting the proper exposure all comes down to what you need to do to generate traffic. To generate traffic will always be the real major challenge for anyone looking for how to make money online or get anybody to their website to see the information or products and services that they offer.

For you to accomplish the task of getting traffic, you need to get into SEO and marketing strategies. What you do here will make all the difference to how fast you could expect to get and receive traffic. There are no set rules as to the response you’ll receive doing the same thing from one type of site to another.  In other words, I have multiple websites that I do the same thing with each of them on how I see about getting traffic to them. Even though I’m doing the same thing, I receive different levels of traffic, and that is due to the website’s niche. The topic you choose will also determine how many people are looking for a site like yours.

What you choose for a niche is imperative to how many people are searching out information on the topic. The popularity of the keyword or phrase works as a double edged sword that if you select a highly searched topic, you are also up against a lot more competition. The trick here is to pick a niche where you can get your fair share of the traffic to make your website successful for your purposes. To get more information on where you can learn what you require to build a website and generate traffic then check out this post on Free Website Building And Hosting.

These are just a few of many other options, and each of these can branch out further as you start to realize the full potential available to you.

The biggest problem most people have is where and how to get themselves started with knowing how to make sense of it all and make it work for them.

Hey i like what you are doing here, you seem like a new site but it seems to be coming along.

Wealthy affiliate really seems like an awesome place. There are so many scams out there that make a ton of promises and never deliver. WA really seems like a place to build your website and to build a business.

Thanks for the information.


    February 23, 2016 at 11:15 am

    Yes, this is a new site. I have a business website that I make all my money with and after finding out from all the lessons and what the community has to offer I decided to let others know.

    All the other places I was running my websites from I never passed on as they were OK but had nothing in place for really helping others create and have a successful online business until know.

    There are a lot of people looking for what I have finally found so I’m spreading the word to help the ones looking that when it comes to building a website and having a hosting package that this will do it for them.

    I’ve been fortunet enough that I have never been scammed and if I can help others not to be scammed then I’ll do my part. So all the best.

Another great post on how to build a website. Learning how to build a website is a knowledge that people who get it have big advantages, considering how easy building a website has become nowadays. What you are suggesting is a great start to create your free website, I am a big fan of Siterubix for free websites and hosting, as this option offers much more. Keep up the great work!


    March 21, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    The great thing about these free sites is you have the option to go premium to maximize on the amount of help and lessons or just stick with the free stuff and do your own thing with no interuptions. Either way you’ll find you can’t go wrong.

Thanks Travis for this great post.
Gosh haven’t we come along way since Dreamweaver!?
I really enjoy working with WordPress as I think it is so simple and easy to use.
What you learn at Wealthy Affiliate is not just how to build a website but how to build it properly with the right foundations to build a proper presence online. That is invaluable!

Wealthy affiliate is definitely a great community to be a part of. I spent a while looking at different places and classes. I was always wary about actually having to pay anything. Being a recent college grad with not real income other than some side jobs here and there, I didn’t have the capital to really start my own business. Wealthy affiliate showed me that it was possible. I definitely approve of WA. Especially since after the free lessons I had gotten further than I ever had in creating my own website. Great information here.

    Hi Pete, that is one of the great things about doing a business online is how cheaply it can be done comepared to trying to create and operate one offline. Most people do not always realize the difference in cost as they have never tried it before but anyone can see about doing business online where it is not capabile offline for many.

    From all the years I have been involved with the internet Wealthy Affiliate is the best chance for most when you look at the overall cost and all what you’ll recieve. Many other places that even say they offer what WA has cost a lot more and I’ve never found any of them to rate as well.

This is a brilliant explanation of a website builder. Perfect for anyone who is considering building a website and is not sure where to start.

Personally, building my own niche website and getting into affiliate marketing is one of the best decision I’ve ever made. I do not YET earn a full time income but watching my traffic grow and my sales get more regular gives me a good sense of what is to come!


    June 17, 2016 at 9:15 pm

    Nowadays building a site is easier than ever with the website builders companies have set up these days. Even though there are some great options to whom you can go with for having a site created with these builders, the best one for me so far is Wealthy Affiliate.

    I like the fact you can do more with or without having to code compared to the other sites out there promoting website builders. You are also right about how nice it is to watch you are traffic grow, and the sales accumulate as time moves forward.

This is a great page! I like the images, and the table you’ve added. I think the first paragraph could use some work. I think it could be broken up a bit, and i think you could expand on the title- it looks half finished.

Also i think the ‘whats the sense of having a website…’ sentence could be taken out, to give the paragraph a friendlier tone?


    July 7, 2016 at 11:07 pm

    Hi Taj, and thanks for taking the time to give me some feedback about what you thought about my post, will take your advice into consideration.


August 1, 2016 at 6:30 pm

Excellent post and just what I needed at this point in my life. I have been trying to make steady income on the Internet for some time now. But I keep falling victim to Internet scammers and it’s just been really bad for me.

But I have a new flame that you just lit inside me with this wealthy affiliate program.

Is it an age limit on who can join?

I will be more than happy to become a member thanks and let me know.


    August 2, 2016 at 11:28 am

    Wealthy Affiliate is open to all ages except kids approaching their teen years that would like to get involved with the Internet. The best way for a young teen that understands the work involved but still wants to get involved would be to have one of their parents sign up for them so they could start their online business and register it in their name later when they come of age. Different countries have different age limits to when you can be a business owner and pay taxes accordingly, but you can find that out from where you live and check out the government site for your country.

    Pretty well most places are good from 18+, and you can be on your way no problem.

Some great information here, and I am sure it has explained a lot, as everyone always tells you that you need a website to make money, but they never tell you how you are going to make money with your website.

Wealthy Affiliate, the program that you recommend here has been helping thousands of people to do just that, and I am very happy building my websites through this platform, and it is easy and the training is great.


    August 4, 2016 at 10:11 am

    I’ve dealt with a few different website providers and found that wealthy affiliate is the better choice to use for building your online business.

    It’s not just a matter of having the best website builder but having all the extra support and training that is required once you have created your site.

    Wealthy Affiliate gives you the full package to take you from the first step of creating your website to learning all about making your site work for you. Your site needs to rank in the search engines properly, and you also need to know how to market your site to get it in front of as many people as possible.

    Wealthy Affiliate will help you achieve everything you need to do from the lessons and training from them and the community.

Excellent post Travis!

Very helpful information for those who are starting a blog, like myself 🙂

I must admit that creating good quality content and reaching the audience is tougher than I expected.

But thanks to websites like yours or communities like Wealthy Affiliate one can be sure that can succeed in the online business!


    August 4, 2016 at 10:16 am

    Hi Adrian and I would have to say; most people do not realize just how much extra work comes after the initial use of the website builder to create your site. Even I, in the beginning, was surprised with just how much there is to learn and keep learning to make things happen.

    For most people getting involved with taking this task of an online business on then, Wealthy Affiliate is the better way to go to the guide and help everybody out with what is required.

Your post “Build A Website And Then What?” is well thought out and put together. Your brief history of website building was quite informative. Your advice on keywords is absolutely true. The keyword tool at Wealthy University is very helpful in searching out keywords that generate high traffic yet low competition.
I wish you well in all your endeavors!


    September 21, 2016 at 12:19 am

    Appreciate that Glen, as I’ve created this site to help as many people that I may with whom I’m able to reach. Most visitors that come to my site are newbies, so I’m trying to same them as much leg work as I can and help them find what they are looking for as they are searching.

Building websites have certainly become easier, thanks to wordpress.

These days all you need is a couple of plugins, and just like that you have a website, back then, it was rough you had to manually code the entire thing.

It’s great to know that there are such honest institutions out there about how you can build a website for free like wealthy affiliate.

I agree, they make building a website so easy.


    January 16, 2017 at 12:32 pm

    Things have changed a lot and at least when it comes to building sites these days most providers all have one form or another a platform that offers you a website builder to create a site. There are many providers you can choose from and most of them all have great website builders. The biggest thing people need to do now is find who has the best options for what they want to do when creating a site.

    So far Wealthy Affiliate offers one of the best free and paid packages available to create and build a site. WA also offers a training package plus continuous training which the other providers do not for SEO and marketing of your business. The other providers only deal with the platform they use for their website builder and have nothing to very little in the ways of SEO and marketing.

Hi Travis!

It’s amazing how easy can be to create your own website today, compared to the loads of work and knowledge you needed a few years ago!

And I totally agree with you, Wealthy Affiliate is the right place to do so.

I can imagine having to browse and search on Google everything I’ve learned in this amazing community, I’d take a lot of time just to know what you’re looking for, and at WA you got it all together in just one single place.

Thanks for reenforcing my belief that I’m on the right path!


    April 23, 2017 at 12:13 am

    Glad I could be of some service and Wealthy Affiliate is the best way I have found to date on building an online presence.
