Build your own website - part 1

When it comes to creating your own website it can seem like "where do i start". Whether it be domain or web hosting or just even coding the website, this tutorial will go through a basic way of learning how to create your own website from scratch with little or no knowledge of xhtml or css.

1.  Lets start with a HTML Editor

When beginning to design a website its best to start with a free xhtml editor, this can be like htmlpad or notepad++. High end, feature rich web editors like homesite and dreamweaver cost to be able to use.

This is what a typical html editor will look like.


The body tags is where all the content that you want to read and see on the web page, like text and images will be placed. The title tags is where you want the heading for the webpage to be! This is especially important when it comes to search engine optimization because its what Google uses to link to your website. Its important that your titles are keyword rich and are original to archive a high placement within the google index.

2. Use CSS to position your code

Each html page is closed with html tags and saved as a .html file. When positioning that content in the webpage its the use of CSS that positions the text and images, CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheets.

This is an example of developing css code for your website!

Quantum computers for energy calculation

Something that i found interesting on website, is that a group of scientists are now using a quantum computer to calculate the energy of a hydrogen molecule.

When it comes to calculating the energy of a hydrogen molecule, precision is absolutely necessary and this is where using a quantum computer calculates a very accurate measurement.
Physics Professor Andrew G. White stated that "A classical computer trying to do this exact simulation of a complex process would just blow up". Unlike a classical computer, a quantum computer can account for an exponential number of possibilities when looking at a single piece of information. What this means in basic terms is that the more calculations is needed the speed of the computer or processor wont slow down like in a normal laptop or desktop computer.

For information about this exciting breakthrough in science and the world of computing, please visit the following link.

Quality SEO Research for your website

When it comes to gaining organic search engine traffic for your website a site must have optimized source code for a search engine algorithm to crawl it and index the site. Most free bloging platforms for building your website like Blogger and Wordpress do have valid X-HTML source code making it easy for it to index. The first phase in gaining a spot in Google's index is by having your website crawled by a spider, which is an automated program used to read a websites content.

Once your site has been crawled then the search engine algorithm makes a decision on where it places your website page within its index. There can be lots of variables in regards to where the web page is ranked, these can be the age of the domain, the amount of quality links that link to that web page, and whether the title tags have the keywords being searched for. If building a new website it will take some time for certain keywords that your website has to appear in search results, this is because a search engine like Google has the website in a "sandbox" environment because it is new needs a certain amount of page information and written content for it to be valuable.

It can take up to 3 months to start noticing traffic from a search engine, whether it be from Google, yahoo or bing. The best way to gain quality SEO for your website is to keep your website updated and to write new content for it because the search engine spider will come back to your website more often therefore indexing more content. The next step in the process of gaining a high ranking within Google is to have a high quality content website with a link to your website, this is could an inbound link. Inbound links to your website provide a level of quality for your website because it tells the search engine what the most quality and popular content is.

When choosing to write content for your website its important to understand that a search engine is looking for original, fresh and keyword content webpages. Keyword content is about writing about a certain topic say "the future of tv's in 2010" and making it rich in information and whether certain keywords like tv's and 2010 is mentioned within the content. It is important to know not to repeat the keyword to many times because it takes out the originality factor out of the website and doesn't make it sound like your speaking to a person. Writing content that is fresh means keeping your website up to date so search engines have new content to index and people have new content to read, and having original content means not copying exact phrases of other websites because this will devalue your site because the search engine will already know the content that was first written.

This blog post on Quality SEO Research for your website covers the basics on how to gain an understanding of SEO which should be followed to gain a search ranking which will bring traffic to your website.
