Q. Can I create my site in my word processor and choose "save as html" or "save to web"?

A. This might work, but we very strongly discourage it. This is the worst possible way to create a web site. Word processors save terrible code, and it may only work in one browser.

Q. Do you recommend the use of online templates and other automatic web page generation tools to create web sites?

A. Templates and on-line site generators may be adequate for small sites and for beginners. We provide both but neither use them ourselves, support them or recommend them. A site created by a site generator may not be portable to another host if they do not have the same software installed. Purchased templates should be portable, and may work reasonably well, if you don't mind that many other people may have an almost identical site.

Q. I don't have any experience in creating a site. Can you help me create my site?

A. We don't design any sites other than our own. You will need to use a web creation program yourself, a ready-made template, or hire a designer.

Q. What are doorway pages?

A. A doorway page is a page that is optimized to rank well on the search engines. Each search engine has it's own unique ranking algorithms (formulas used to determine the relevancy of a page to a given search term). Since every engine's algorithms differ, it is almost impossible to design one page that ranks well in all or even most of the search engines. This is why doorway pages can be useful. A doorway page can be any page on your site or ione you create specifically for this purpose. A doorway page has no special look to it. It is simply an alternate entrance to your site that has the right words in the right frequencies, positions, and tags. The design of the page is important. A well designed doorway page blends into the rest of your site seamlessly. It has relevant content targeted toward the key term. Each doorway page's content should vary somewhat with the key term. Ideally the doorway page is not just a fluff page but rather an informative, eye catching, relevant page that describes your product or service. In fact, if it is too obviously only there to attract a specific search engine, that engine might realize what it is and ban your site.
