Benefits of Google sitemap

Google Sitemaps enables Webmasters to Directly Alert Google to Changes and Additions on a Website and that’s just one of 7 Benefits.

Telling search engines about new pages or new websites use to be what the submission process was all about. But major search engines stopped using that process a long time ago.

Google has for a long time depended on external links from pages they already know about in order to find new websites.

For webmasters and website owners Google Sitemaps is the most important development since RSS or Blog and Ping, to hit the Internet.

Using RSS and Blog and Ping enabled webmasters to alert the search engines to new additions to their web pages even though that was not the primary purpose of these systems.

If you’ve ever waited weeks or months to get your web pages found and indexed you’ll know how excited we webmasters get when someone discovers a new way to get your web pages found quicker.

How To Sell A Website

Hello friends,I keep on roaming on the internet for learning new things which gave me very good exposure to the business world and marketing world.I have luckily got this article while i was randomly surfing on the internet.I would like to share it with you all.

Before I even begin to commence on this tiring and inevitably pesky subject, I would like to make clear that this isn’t a tutorial or much in the way of decent advice, but more of a question. I never feel I’m up to the standard as either a designer or businessman to be dishing out the advice, so I tend to approach subjects from an inquisitive, unbiased 3rd person perspective.

I don’t know how to sell a website. I know how to build a website. I could sit and talk to you for hours about web design, in person – writing articles can be too time-consuming, though all in good time. But as for selling a site to a hopeful future client, there’s no exact science, but perhaps an art.

From the tiny amount of business experience I’ve gained from my time in this world and as a freelance designer, one of the most important lessons I’ve learnt, although not always acknowledged, is not to waffle and geek it up. The client doesn’t care if you’re using valid XHTML 1.0 or AJAX, if the site is designed in a ‘Web 2.0′ style or uses semantic, table-less mark-up. Hell, most clients couldn’t care less how good the site looks as long as it works and doesn’t cost too much.

It makes me cringe just to write that, but it’s true. It makes sense though. If I were to reverse the role, I was the client and someone was selling me a new boiler. I couldn’t really care less what new fan-dangled eco-friendly technology some box-heads in Germany have managed to condense into a chassis half the size of my existing boiler. I wouldn’t particularly bat an eyelid to the fact it has a touch-screen digital control panel or an ultra-sensitive air density thermometer (now I’m really making stuff up!) At the end of the day, all I want to know is that it works and won’t cost me the arm and leg I so invariably care for.

If there were any other snippets of advice I could give from my own experience selling a site, they would be as follows:

Ways to keep surfer stay longer at your website or blog

Have you ever encounter that your website is not profitable although you have done much to promote your website and getting lots of traffic? This could due to the fact that your website visitors are not staying there for longer time. There are some of the consideration you could take note of and these will be explained below:

Giving direct website
When a visitor surf and come to your home page, he or she will get his or her first impression. As such, the home page should be professionally designed. It should be appealing to the visitors. You could easily outsource to some professional website design company if you are not trained to do it.

Your website must contain four important information. You must tell the surfer what your website is exactly about and what is there for them. At the same time, you must also tell them why should they get Product/Services from there and why now. The last important information you must convey to your surfer is what is the benefit they will get from there

These messages should described in a short and precise words so that they could easily understood at one look.

Restricting from showing flash animation and pop ups
You must know that your target audience is world wide and there are many surfer who have slow internet connection or they do not have flash animation plug in. You must assume the worst scenario of your surfer.

As animation typically will takes up some time to load, it could be annoying for visitors just to wait to view the page. The situation will be even worst if their internet connection is slow.

For your information, those web pages with flash animation will also be difficult to index on most search engine.

Your web pages should try not to have any advertisement pop ups. Surfers could be annoyed. They may not be interested in these advertisements especially when they are surfing for something.

Convert Visitor into Subscriber to your website

If a person visits your website and leaves, chances are that he or she will not come back, especially if there are no compelling reasons to do so. After all, we all behave rather impulsively on the Internet, so much so that we can easily forget where we were 10 web pages ago.But the bottom line is that your visitor may not come back to your website again. If 1,000 visitors visit your website, leave and never come back again, you can imagine the amount of potential revenue lost, simply because they do not come back. You could have converted a fraction of the visitors into your customers.

Some may say that creating unique content can keep some of the visitors coming back, but very often, unique content is not the solution. The real, long-term solution lies in converting your visitors into subscribers of your mailing list.

Before your visitor leaves your website, you want to convert him or her into your subscriber via a simple opt-in to your mailing list. You do this by asking for your visitor’s name and email address through your opt-in form.

And if your visitor signs up to be on your mailing list, you can still follow up with him via email. You can get your subscriber to consider your offer, or endorse another offer to him or her.

All in all, you want to convert as many visitors into subscribers as possible and obtain the potential revenue you rightfully deserve – the easy, wise way
