Website Design Sydney great tips to help make your website successful

This blog has been created to share tips and techniques to have a successful and engaging site for you visitors. As Google is still king in the search engine world here in Australia, it is important to keep up to speed with their constant algorithm changes that impact all of our sites including mine.

I have been building websites since 1999 and worked out search engine optimisation on my own back in 2001. I remember when the internet was born in the mid 1990s and was listed alphabetically. Then the young web designers that jumped on board and were charging $50,000 for websites. During that time, I was just watching and waiting till that bubble burst. Funny to hear a lot of investors running and the media making out they were pouring money into something that was not real.

Still I followed the changes, movements and performances as the internet I could see was here to well and truly stay. I recall building my sites back then in 2003 thinking I may have missed the boat. Boy, was I wrong. I was still in the forefront of it all. I build my meditation website as that is another passion on mine. 2004. I was one of the first, I had at least 20-30 new people enquiring and arriving to my classes I teach after hours. That really showed me how the Australians embraced the internet and were using it instead of the Yellow Pages. These days, the yellow pages has thinned out. Now they are trying to promise everything to business owners. From what I am hearing, they are promising many things and not delivering much at all for the what they are charging. Most of their team a smooth sales men and don't have much knowledge about the ever changes internet at all.

Well, that brings us to the here and now. Yes, it is true, anyone can build a website. Did you realise though that right now the Indexed Web contains at least 1.78 billion pages on the global internet and growing every day (Tuesday, 18 February, 2014) Notes taken from the World Wide Web Size.

The secret is making your website stand out from the rest and this is achieved with good search engine optimisation (SEO) using white hat techniques. We all need to be aware of Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird updates. Plus many others as they are being continuously rolled out by Google.
