I'm scared of putting up
content that's not perfect, what should I do to get started building my site?
Question - I have a problem. I've started
to gather information in order to build web pages, but find that I just can't
bring myself to build them (they're mostly still on Notepad), as I don't know
how to qualify them. I always think that they are not good enough!
How should I approach the building of these pages? Just put something in
writing to fill up space or should I be very conscious of the quality and the
content, before previewing and uploading.
To write a page about golf tours in our part of the world could take a long
time as my mind is filled with lots of info, questions and queries that beg a
huge amount of research.
This means that the page will never get finished. I hope you understand what
I'm trying to get across.
Surely you must have been in a similar situation when you first started out
or am I just ignorant and to inexperienced?
Should I look for keywords for each page and when will such a page be
submitted to World submitter?
Answer - I can understand your
frustration - many people have expressed similar feelings to me so you are not
When I started building sites a few years back I wanted everything to be perfect
and I was worried about people finding unfinished or less than perfect pages as
well, but I read a note from Ken where he said just put your pages up as fast as
you can and then go back later on and edit them as your confidence and knowledge
That's what I'd recommend you do as well.
Take what you have written so far, relate each article to a keyword you've found
in your brainstorming (you may have to re-write your content a little to make
sure that your keyword is used in the first and second paragraphs and the last
one as well) and start building pages.
As you build them, they will be submitted to the search engines and the process
of getting your new site will begin. Don't worry; it takes a few weeks before
too many people will see them so you will have a chance to fix them up before
Don't try to get everything perfect at this stage, just go ahead and build 20
pages using your 20 best keywords.
Once you've got them done, go back and re-read them and make any adjustments you
feel you need to make so they are say 7 our of 10, with 10 being perfect, then
start attracting link partners as outlined in lesson 12.
Don't worry my friend, just write an article that's focused on a keyword, and
then build a page for it. Then write another one, until you have 20 pages.
As you go along your confidence will increase and in a couple of months you'll
be powering along with it.
