How to add Google Analytics to your website

Your first step is to make sure you have a Gmail account, if so then all you need to do is go to Google.com/analytics .  Once you get there just sign up using your existing Google account, look for the admin button on the top right and click it.

And then click on new account to add your first website, it looks like this:

Once you click New Account, you will enter in the information for the website.  Such as a Account Title, this can be something like “Your Website”  and then it will ask you for the website URL.  With a drop down for “http://” or “https://”, if you have SSL you select the “https://” if you do not know what this is then you most likely have “http://”.  Next to that you just enter in  YourWebsite.com, the www is really not needed and you may see an example below:

Once you are done, you will be provided a tracking code as you see below:

Now do keep in mind this code is to be placed in the head of your website, when using WebPaper you just go to the editor and click the Page Properties icon with the red bar under it as you see below:

And a pop-up will appear, just paste the code you copied from the Analytics page into the bottom box that says Addition head tags:

Once your done hit ok, and then click the floppy disck icon on the top right to save.  Or you can hold CTRL and hit S to save as well :)

How to build a website

When building a website, the first thing to think of is an idea.  Most of the times you already know your idea so that should be quite easy, then you want to think of a title for your website.  Now the title can be very important so there are some great FREE tools that you can use to help you choose the right title.  Google provides some great tools like Google Insights or Google Adwords Keyword Tool, both of these tools can help you see the popularity of they keywords you might be looking into. Google Insights will show you the past popularity and future predictions of the keywords you search, along with giving you a few other related keywords. Google Adwords Keyword Tool also shows you the popularity of a keyword, along with other related keywords.  But it will also show you how dense the market is  this comes in use when you are trying to think of other ideas or names.  If your fighting against more people then your fighting an uphill battle but it can still be done.  For the easier path you want a market that is less dense so you can dominate it and then go after more markets once you have succeeded in the first one.

Now that you have your title picked out, we can move onto how to build your website.  There are many Content Management Systems (CMS) to choose from, some people who want a blog choose something like Blogger or WordPress as they are 100% Free but do keep in mind with free solutions some limitations do apply.  Now if you want full control over all your pages to drag anything anywhere and add videos to any place on your website then I would highly suggest WebPaper, they do offer a free solution with 3 pages and 2MB of storage for uploading of images and much much more.  But also if you want you can sign up and get much more access and applications to add to your website.  The great thing about WebPaper is it’s drag and drop simplicity that no one else can compare to.

Now you might want to consider Search Engine Optimization (SEO), this is how search engines will find you.  Although search engines scan the web looking for new websites all the time, it really helps if you have the right information in the right places so the search engines know just what your website is about.  This is so they list you in the type of market or results you want to be listed in, so your traffic is full of people looking for just what you offer.  Now Search Engine Optimization consists of a lot of things, but I will cover a few crucial ones now.  Keyword Density is the amount of times you use a target keyword in your content, from my understanding and past work you want to try and keep it at 8% – 10% this means for every 100 words use the keyword no more than 8 to 10 times.  If you exceed that then search engines will consider you a robot or spam and possibly sand box or black list your domain/website.  Now meta tags such as title, description and keywords are also a MUST!  and just F.Y.I. WebPaper lets you set them right as you start building your website, so it’s very easy and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Friendly.

Now do watch out because you might be saying oh I know some website builder that works to, well don’t just try any website builder.  As some build the websites in FLASH, and the bad part about FLASH is search engines don’t understand it.  Not to mention it wont work on cell phones or mobile devices, and as iPad’s and Smart Phones become more and more popular.  You will lose out on a huge and very fast growing market, so just keep that in mind.

WebPaper also offers tons of free website templates to help you get started quite fast, all you have to do is adjust the pictures with your own, and maybe add or adjust some text and your done!

Now it is up to you to share your website with friends and family, and ask them to share it with their friends and family.  Soon you will see the traffic grow as your site takes listing on Google in a few days as well.  From then on it’s just about keeping up with the posting and addition of content to your website.

Best of Luck ! and feel free to check out more blog posts on our Blog for more website building and marketing information.

How to get clients and start making money

Learning how to make money with WebPaper Online

Lets start off by explaining to you what WebPaper is. WebPaper is a full hosting service, content management system, and a full web development tool. With or without programming knowledge you will be able to completely build a fully functional and professional website on your own. Graphic experience is a plus but not necessary.

Is there anything I need to know? To answer this simply, NO! It is an advantage to know adobe photoshop, or any other image editing software.

To make money with WebPaper is simple, easy and effective if you are confidant, a self starter and very motivated. If this is not you then read no further. Making money online is easy but does take time and patients (like anything that makes money). Once you get the ball rolling the momentum will only increase bringing you more clients with less effort.

1. Getting Clients – This might be the hardest parts of anything. Doing this is not easy and can be frustrating at times. With constistncy and confiendice you will prevail. Here are some tips and tricks to doing this.

  • Tell your friends, family and anyone you come across that you develop websites (and possibly at a low cost). The more people you tell the more potential clients you will have.
  • Use the internet, you have so many resources at your finger tips USE THEM! (Craigslists, Facebook, Yahoo classifieds)
  • Build a reputation (This will bring clients to you. Its a great feeling when clients come to you and you no longer are looking for work.)
  • Be price competitive. Currently the market is only growing and getting larger. Think about your prices, to low scares people, to high scares people. You need that right number that will attract the right people to your business.
  • Have specials, certain months or even weeks you can offer specials in which you should offer lower pricing for a certain amount of clients. Example would be $450.00 reduced to $250.00. $200.00 Off this WEEK ONLY!
2. Keeping clients – Believe it or not keeping clients is not a easy task but can be done through patients, maturity, and self confidence in your services. Be willing to bite the bullet for your clients. The client is always right, most the time.
3. Collecting money – You should collect at a minimum 50% of the overall project price before starting. There will be a lot of people who will attempt to waste your time, don’t allow them. If they are serious they will have no problem doing this. Upon full approval of your work you should then collect the other 50% of the total cost of the project.
Charge for hosting, making residual income is great! Pick your monthly price (be fair!), don’t forget that you can give your clients access to their website with Sub Accounts.
—————————-

With WebPaper’s fully manageable accounts you can start building and maintaining all your clients on one WebPaper account. WebPaper makes it easy to stay organized and be very productive in development and updating your websites. Host multiple websites on your WebPaper account, allowing you to have a central ”Administrator” account for all your websites and clients.

Sub Accounts

Give your clients access to their website pages with Sub Accounts. Make them an account with their desired email address, password and assign them their web pages. Now they can access your website at anytime

As you can see, starting your own website development business might be easier and less expensive then you thought.

Best Website Builder of 2011

What is the best website builder or website creator?

I have tried a few website builders in my time of creating websites, and I have found WebPaper.co to be the easiest and most powerful for Search Engine optimization (SEO).  Along with affordable pricing and great customer support. Please read the following reasons as listed below to find our just why WebPaper.co is rated #1.

Reason #1

I have noticed other website builders or website creators that are made in flash such as circlepad.com.  This produces a flash site as well, now the downfall to this is flash is not accepted everywhere and therefor your site wont be seen.  You should know that flash is not supported on most if not all mobile devices such as: iPhone’s, iPad’s, BlackBerry’s and even HTC’s cell phones wont support flash.  Not to forget the rising use of mobile devices for internet use.  WebPaper.co  is your non flash website builder, creating amazing business and personal websites alike in full HTML/CSS platform.  Taking all the programming and coding headache out of the website building experience.

Reason #2

Full control, some website builders like webs.com wont allow you to really place items wherever you want on the screen.  It just allows you to move text blocks above or below each other. But WebPaper.co allows you to add anything to any location of your website, providing full control over your website.

Reason #3

Advertisement FREE for 30 days!  WebPaper.co does not advertise on any users websites for 30 days, unlike every other website builder on the market.  Most website builders like webs.com place a 1″ inch by 6″ inch advertisement on the very top of your website.  For just $1.00 a month this banner can be removed off a free account, thats only $12.00 a year! So why lose visitors to non-related advertisements?

Reason #4

100% FREE!   WebPaper.co offers what others do not, such as homestead.com says its free.  But when read closely you will see its a free trial, it still requires you to enter in your credit card to get started.  WebPaper.co lets you sign up and get started building your very own website.  Never once did it ask for my credit card, until I wanted to look at upgrading my account, to gain more pages or access to more applications for the website builder.

 

So all in all WebPaper.co offered the best website building experience, all 100% Free of charge for my very first web page.  I loved the Search Engine optimization (SEO) features as well, to find out more about using WebPaper.co please check out the Tour section.
