Learn how to build a free website or blog in five easy steps even If you have no experience. Nowadays it is pretty easy to make beautiful blogs and websites without knowing any web development languages and skills. With the right tools, one can literally make a website that works in ten minutes.
But making beautiful websites and blogs is not enough. The websites should be able to attract quality and targeted traffic. One of the best I have used for the last ten years to easily make wordPress websites is called SITERUBIX. Basically, this tool does most of the critical work in the background. You just input a few basics and your website is ready.
SITERUBIX belongs to Wealthy Affiliate, the online training portal for setting online businesses. That means that apart from the web builder, one has the opportunity to learn the essential points in setting and scaling an online business.
The training portal also comes with free tools like an article writer and a keyword research tool to enable you target hungry customers looking for your services and products. And the vibrant community within the portal is more than to help when you get stuck.
Choose a free domain name for your site. This should reflect the main theme of what you want to do with your website or blog. The main point to remember is that your website will be your brand. Therefore the domain name should be easy to pronounce and remember.
Since it is a free domain name, it will come with an extension of .siterubix.com. Therefore, if your chosen domain is lucy, the domain will be lucy.siterubix.com. Later, if you want to own the domain name, you just upgrade through their domain registrar.
Domain names are rather hard to get, so don’t be worried if you don’t get your first choice. Just add a variation of your choice until you get what you want. But note that domain names are real online properties so it is good to consider investing in one for just a few dollars a year.
Domain names are also sellable. If you get a good domain name in a popular niche, you can always sell it in domain marketplaces like Flippa.com among others. You can even park your domain and sell it after a few years for a good amount.
Now armed with a domain name, itr is time to select the name title for your website or blog. It is not necessary that the website name must match the domain name. At this point it is good to point out the difference between a website and a blog.
A website is a static portal with fixed pages while a blog is continuously updating through posting by the admins and other contributors. In other words, a blog is also a website but a website is not a blog. A blog still has pages, but its main functionality is posts and comments on its blogroll. It is actually an online diary.
Therefore when selecting the name, take into account the type of audience you are targeting as they will be participating in your blog. And just to add to the name of the website or blog, think also of a good tagline and slogan to go with your site.
Along with the name of your website, think also of how many categories you can segment it. Kind of how many different topics will be handled by the website or blog. This will make it easier and more specific for your followers to contribute. It will also enable the search engines to index your website better.
Having done with the branding part, it is now time to select the website design. This will be determined by the main theme of the website. Luckily, SITERUBIX comes with over 5000 free themes to choose from. If for example you are in the insurance niche, you will find hundreds of insurance websites to choose from.
Think of colors and the user experience. Go for those themes that your audience will navigate with ease. Many themes come with free versions that can be upgraded later once your site gains traction. You can even choose any theme and change once your website is installed.
The type of the theme you choose will depend on your expertise. If you are a beginner, choose a simple theme you are comfortable with. As you train and progress, you can play around with more sophisticated themes. You can also check sample designs from the home pages of the theme designers.
But since you may be using a free domain, better to stick with a free theme until you have your own domain. All you need to do is add content to your site, and once it is indexed and ranked, you then invest in a premium theme though it is not necessary. It is more important to first get your own domain and themes can come later.
