Web Page Creation Software

By: Jim Janowiak

If you have decided to finally start building your own websites, congratulations. Make sure you understand this right from the beginning. You will need the best web page creation software on the market.

Here is why. Building websites has now become very easy with "What You See Is What You Get" , (WYSIWYG) software. This software has made it extremely easy to build web pages. The problem is will anyone ever see the web pages?

The Internet has become extremely competitive over the last 5 years. Just building a web page or website does not mean anyone will see it. If that web page and website are not constructed correctly the search engines will give the site a low rating and they will never show up in the listings.

Thousands and thousands of people have built websites only to have absolutely no one visit the site. No one found it because it never showed up in any search engine listings. This will happen to you.

Building your own website and unique web pages gives you a leg up on using a template. Yes, even Wordpress. However, you have to structure it correctly using the meta tags, description, H1,H2, keyword density, readability and several other "On Page" search engine optimization.

If you don't structure the web pages correctly they will never get listed. The internet now has too much content. Too much duplicate and useless content. The search engines job is to filter out the good content from the bad content. Your job is to put up good content well structured for the search engines.

This is why I said you need the best web page creation software you can find. The good news is the best software for beginners is not the most expensive. I have tried several of the website creation software on the market. Take it from me they are not all created equal.

Let me save you some real time. Don't start with the free software. Think about why it is free. It just doesn't have the functionality. It will not analyze your web page and tell you what you need to correct. Even the best webmasters forget certain things and have to be prompted.

The medium priced, $49.00 to $100.00 webpage building software is better but a lot of functionality is still missing. These don't have built-in FTP, web forms, search engine friendly site maps, links page, pop ups manager, multi page creation, resource manager, XML syndication and much, much more.

These functions are now a must to building SEO friendly web pages. If you think you don't need these built in features you are mistaken. The Internet has gotten a little more difficult and that is why the new web page creation software has developed.
Now you don't need to worry about the professional software that the professional webmasters use to build huge websites. That software is expensive and difficult to use. There is a huge learning curve.

One last thing I need to mention. That is learning curve. The web page creation software we have been talking about needs to be what I call intuitive. If its intuitive it seems to make sense. In other words the next click or the next step makes sense even without reading the manual. You can get into crazy software that was designed for engineers and nothing makes sense.

If the software is not simple to use it will not get used. Please try and keep all this in mind when you are looking for a great web page creation software.
