Website Design 101 - learn the basics of web design and SEO

web design 101

So you want to learn about website design and development as well as SEO?  Great!  I like to think of this as ‘your’ site as well as mine.  Why?  Because I will be building your site as I construct the lessons, releasing both YouTube videos, podcasts and, of course, adding the lesson content to this website – linked below.

The structure is pretty easy to understand – there are 3 sets of lessons:

The first part, The Basics, is aimed at getting you started in web design, from the boring basics but core foundations that you need to think about and then up to the actual design of the site.

The second part, The Novice, is aimed at the content of your new website including thinking about keywords and the structure from a search engine optimization point of view plus submitting of your site to the big search engines.

The third part, The Advanced, will be looking at things in a little more detail.  For instance, we will be looking at speed of the site in more detail as well as aspects of making money from your site and longevity.

I hope you find some value in the content I am sharing with you but, as with any decent learning curves, please do get in touch if there is something more you would like to see on the site!  Any topics you want me to discuss further?  Any web design thoughts and ideas that you would like to share?

I will be also adding posts on general subjects as and when I think they will come in useful and to give some further advice and tips when designing your website or, indeed, when looking at SEO in more detail.  Don’t forget to subscribe on the home page to make sure you get any updates on the lessons and tips posted to both the site and YouTube!
