Podcast 32 - Web Site Content | Buying Hosting For Life
It is [url=http://www.webhostingshow.com]Web Hosting Show[/url] time yet again. I am here to give you a little sample of what is going on this week. The party doesn't end here though, if you want to listen to the whole show, just download it and let me know what you think. On this week's show the two biggest topics we covered were buying Web hosting for a lifetime and the importance of Web site content.

You can pay $299 for a lifetime of Web hosting. Anytime I hear a Web hosting company selling "Web hosting for life" it always alarms me a little. No mater who the company is and no mater who you are, you have to remember one simple rule. Even if everything works and everything is legit, you are not buying Web hosting for your lifetime. You are buying Web hosting for the company's lifetime.
The Web hosting company making the offer this time around is [url=http://www.brinkster.com/sales/images/sep05/p3/landing.aspx]Brinkster[/url]. To give them credit, it sounds like they are doing everything right and by the book. Here is one thing I found in the terms of service though that was interesting:
<blockquote>This offer is only available for new accounts. The term shall be for either the lifetime of the individual or sixty (60) years, whichever length of time is shorter. Corporate entities, trusts, and organizations may not participate in this offer. If such a party signs up for this promotion, this offer will be null and void without any refund or credit due by Brinkster.</blockquote>
Who uses a Web host that long though? I mean, sure we are all searching for the Web host that is right for us, but getting yourself tied up with a Web hosting account for life might not be the right way to go. In my opinion, you should sign up for the shortest time period possible (usually by the month) and after a year or so, if you are still happy with that Web host, then go ahead and sign up for a longer contracted period.
The folks at Brinkster are free to come onto the show and try to sell me on the idea, but right now I can't say I'd jump in on it with both feet unless you were sure you were going to be happy with Brinkster's hosting quality.
No matter how flashy or great your Web site looks, if you don't have good content you are in a boat without a paddle. I can not count the times that I have said that content is key to a Web site's success. Too many times to count. There are other things you should know about your Web site's content though that you may have not thought about before.
The thing to remember is to make every single word count on your Web page. Don't fill your Web site with a lot of fluff and hardly any substance at all. The one reason why people visit a Web site is to get information. Where is your information? If somebody has to ask that about you, then you might worry more about adding more content and less about other things on the Web site.
The second thing to get down is that spell checker is your best friend. As a writer, you'd probably expect that I have a great mastery of the human language. Not so. The funny thing is that I love to write, but I am the world's worst speller. That is when your friend and mine, the spell checker comes into play. Now I no longer have to sound like a total idiot when I am writing about something I feel strongly about. Well, okay I might still sound like an idiot from time to time. As least I spelled it right though.
Write with passion. It is fairly easy to tell when somebody is writing about something they have no clue about. Make sure you cover your topics and interests in the Web pages completely. If you are working on a rather dull Web site, then find a way of making it's content less dull. After writing it, you should be able to sit back, relax and admire your work. If you feel more like that you are making a mistake than having a job well done, then do it again. Practice makes perfect.
Another topic is I want you to remember is that nobody likes to have to scroll across the page horizontally to read your Web site's content. Horizontal scrolling on a Web page is a big problem. many folks get turned off by a Web site if they have to move their mouse left and right to get what you are trying to say. Make sure you test your Web site's layout at a few different resolutions to make sure you are not forcing folks to scroll horizontally to get the information that you have posted.
Other than that, it is up to speculation. If you ever have a problem, there are lots of second hand stores out there that will sell you old school English books for you to do some studying on. Yes, those years and years of English in school will finally pay off. As you might guessed, I wasn't a very good English student either. I have learned more though out of school than I ever learned in it though.
Last but not least, any good writer will tell you to read more if you want to write more. The more you read of other folks work, the better your own work will become. The reason is you start to develop your own style and content in your own way. You can pick and choose from different methods, and you will become a better writer.
