HAVING A GREAT WEBSITE; SECRETS that DUMMIES LIKE ME CAN USE!
JAZZ UP YOUR WEBSITE's FRONT PAGE, HAVE WOWIE FEATURES! Use
Cute pictures which you get (right click, save, then ftp to your site,) at google images. Be like a POODLE CIRCUS. Do tricks! CONSIDER offering a monthly story or column or some good, free reading on subjects which everyone adores. Have a frugal EZ to make recipes section. Have articles on things that people are crazy about knowing. "HOW TO MAKE A MILLION DOLLARS," "How to get the sweetheart of your dreams." The layout is simple. First, create a banner, I love the TILDE KEY and the KARAT key together, to get effect below, and then FORMAT it with some neat font like BOOKMAN, Then the LIVE LINKS go below, listed but with a description.

THE SECRET OF GREAT GRAPHICS

And so on. Just keep going with a lot of choices for the reader. You could jazz up your new "HI WORLD, it's ME" website with an area on the front page that you call "ARCHIVE" or LIBRARY. You offer either NEAT ARTICLES that you found, or LIVELY READING. This will turn your website into an EZINE. IT can become popular reading, get return visits. Maybe you want to organize it, "HOLISTIC ARTICLES" and another heading "LUCK IN LOVE"
Basically, you will create an index for the front page, and each LINK on that page leads to either another index, or an article. IF it's an index, it would be like your HOLISTIC PAGE, called index4.htm at my website.
On your case, maybe your BANNER would READ " HOLISTIC INDEX", or in my case, again, I have The LUCK IN LOVE index. My websites are that kind of WEBSITE DESIGN FOR DUMMIES model for you to use. I never bought website design software. I do it with MICROSOFT WORD, ANY VERSION would be fine.
Create a simple index, and in it, links to all the articles stacked neatly. The live links lead to another page. When you're finished, google "REGISTER URL, free" and you'll get a list of search engines. Go to all the SEARCH ENGINES and let them know what you have. Get all your writers to do the same. Register the 'themes.' Most search engines ask you to describe your website and they use these words. Also you need embedded text at the top so the spiders that search for the search engine, can 'get the gist' quickly.
Back in 1995, when I opened my first of five websites, I didn't know how to do any of this but I asked my web friend SriMad to do that first index page. On top I asked for embedded text (meta text, which search engines can see, the naked eye cannot, so that you can get googled easily and accurately.) My hidden, meta text says 'free daily horoscopes, new age archive, astrology, holistic and holism, transformational articles, New Age consciousness, Holistic Diet, Rejuvenation, free palmistry lessons,' so that anyone who goes to a search engine and wants 'holistic' or 'new age, gets to my URL. WHATEVER they ask for I want to have it written there, in the text at the top, so I"m trying to think of what they'd be looking for.... HOW TO HEAL, NEW AGE HEALING, How to meet their own, true love....How to get UFOS to land in their yard, how to make chocolate fudge, how to build a cottage industry, the secrets of good curry making, how to heal your cat of all those diseases that cats get etc.....
