Planning Content for Your Website

Planning Content for Your Website

 

The best websites on the internet upload new and fresh content regularly. This applies to content heavy websites like news sites and blogs but it also applies to smaller websites and websites for bricks-and-mortar businesses. The only difference is scale: content heavy websites might upload new content hourly; other websites might upload new content once a week. Whichever category you fall into, you’ll need a structure in place so here are some ideas for planning content for your website.

 

But before getting into that let’s briefly answer the questions why? Why does your site need fresh content? There are two reasons.

 

Web Design Software

Web Design Software

 

When you are starting a new website design project one of the first things you’ll need to decide is the web design software or platform that you’re going to use. There is a lot of choice and the choice is important. This is because it has a big impact on the type of website that you will ultimately create.

 

It impacts your website in many different ways. This includes:

 

  • How quickly you can build the website (e.g. if the software or application has a steep learning curve you will spend a lot of time learning rather than creating).
  • The flexibility of the design.
  • The structure of the completed code.
  • How difficult the website is to upgrade or develop further in the future.

What is Bitcoin?

 

Bitcoin has received a lot of attention recently, which means most people have heard about it. But what is Bitcoin? In simple terms it is a new currency that allows you to do similar things that you do with normal currencies like US dollars and Euros. This includes buying things, accepting payments and investing. Now for a bit more detail.

 

Advocates of Bitcoin believe it’s going to change commerce for the better and forever. Detractors think it is a place for drug dealers and gun runners to hide their transactions. Those in the middle think it has huge potential for good but only if major problems are resolved.
