As this is the first post on this blog, I though I’d let everyone know what’s happening with this website and what to expect in the future.
The site’s coming along nicely and is nearing completion – a few more pages need some content but in terms of front end functionality this is about it.
It’s is running on WordPress, with the blog in separate part of the site. While out of the box WordPress is set up to be a blogging platform, the system and community are so great you can basically set it up to do whatever you want. Even Ford’s official site runs on WordPress.
The logo design was an interesting experience. I ran a competition at 99 designs and the eventual winner, Sima, turned out to be not only a great designer but a very patient person to work with.
Once the site’s finished I’m looking forward to posting some interesting stuff on this blog. I’ll try to cut out the fluff, and I’ll write about what I’ve been learning in the SEO/Online Marketing field.
Along that vein, expect to see:
Info on how to configure WordPress to function as a website
Some Black Hat stuff (which I’ve recently been experienting with on some of my own projects)
Extensive information on SEO for large websites (10,000 pages+). (I’ve been doing SEO for a long time for a website with 65,000 pages at last count.)
And all the usual SEO/PPC stuff
That’s it for now, I probably won’t update this blog for a little while until I’m happy with content and functionality of this website, but since this websites starting to see a fair amount of traffic I thought I’d write a quick update on where it’s all going.
