What Else Do I Need – You Need a Niche
First off every technical thing you will ever need to build a website is available at Wealthy Affiliate. The only things you will need to complete your website must come from you. You first need to have a niche which is something that you feel passionate about that you will be able to promote.
This can be a hobby or an interest or something you practice every day or a type of job you do. It can be anything. You just need to be able to explain it and know a lot about it. For example, my first website was about how to avoid the flu without getting the flu vaccine.
I chose this because I am very much into health and wellness and I know for a fact that you do not need the flu vaccine to avoid getting the flu. I collected information from many medical sources to back up what I was promoting and found supplement companies that offered affiliate programs. For more in depth explanation, read my What is a Niche page.
And You’ll Need to Understand Keywords & SEO
What the heck is SEO? SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is how search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing will rank your website for placement in their search results. Your goal is to get your website to rank on the first page of the search engine. Why is this important?
When you do a search for something on Google or any of the search engines, how often do you scroll through all of the pages to find your answer? Most people will not go past the 1st or 2nd page before finding the answer they are looking for.
This is why it is important to try and get your website listed on the first page. You can accomplish this by two ways: use a non-competitive keyword and writing good quality content. These are the two ways Google and search engines will rank your website.
When creating your content you also want to make sure that your keywords appear in the Title of your web page or post and also in your compelling Meta Description Tag. Over time as you continue to add content to your website, your rankings will improve with the search engines.
Sounds Like a Lot to Digest
Yes, the information may seem like a lot to digest at first but as is true with most things, the more you practice it the easier it will get. I will be discussing in more detail how to find and use Keywords on my Using Keywords page here on my website. I will also go into more detail about what is Quality Content and how to create it on my Writing Content page.
However if you have any questions, comments and/or concerns about anything on this page, please leave it in the comments section below and I will get back to you with my reply, most likely within 24 hours.
