Web Design can be a daunting project for the novice who has a strong need to blog or to set up a static website. Coding PHP, CSS, and HTML calls for a major learning curve and the reality is that most people are not wired to code. Using the Thesis Theme from DIYThemes.com also challenges many users who are using WordPress because customizations require coding despite what is taught in the sales pitch on DIY Themes. Blogging has become so popular that there are countless varieties of themes available, yet many themes are slow and not SEO friendly.
Shawn of DIY Theme Designer sets up blog sites and static sites so they run fast and are clean. I am against adding java script plugins that will only slow down your site. I get many job requests to fix sites that are running multiple heavy java script plugins. Instead of adding a social share plugin that is built in java script, it is more efficient to use social share links by using php code, text or image links can be added.
I believe in the simplicity of building a blog website. Building a site is progressional, yet many prospective website owners want to build every little-complicated element into their site before they even start blogging. I think this is a complete mistake. I know several people who abandoned their sites because of an over complicated web design. Complicated elements can be added after the foundation of blogging, yet a complicated site will not draw traffic or increase your page rank.
Also, there are many prospective clients who contact me to fix their site because the designer they hired did not understand the Thesis framework and add complicated php unneeded code that slows down the site.
Clean, fast, and non-complicated sites will run dynamic.
The Advantages of Blogging
One of the advantages of blogging is getting your message out in an easy to read style. In a straightforward way, you can write informative articles on your blog that keep your readers coming back for more. Whatever niche you choose, there are those who would like more information on it. You can build trust by always giving them excellent content. By using applicable keywords on each post, your web site traffic will increase. Search engines love the unique content that blogs provide and will rank higher posts that are written 400 words or more .
The most popular blogging platform is WordPress. With as many as 6 million new users in a year. Search engines love the web design of WordPress. By optimizing the site for speed, you are ahead of many professionally designed sites using other platforms.
You may be aware that mobile marketing to smart phones is the hottest method on the internet right now. WordPress works well in this arena. On these new devices, you must have a blogging platform that loads your site quickly and accurately.
Before you leap into designing a blog site it is good to ask yourself a few questions are you in a position to write regularly on your blog? The site will continue to rank high by the search engines only if you continue to provide relevant content. That means you need to blog regular and stay within the niche. Also, you may want to purchase SEO services. If you are not very computer savvy, you may find setting up your own site, tedious and time-consuming; one good reason to hire DIY Theme Designer. We offer very good rates to set up your blog site correctly and will teach you SEO and how to blog and use Thesis.
Lastly, despite the major delay of the release of Thesis 2.0, I completely am convinced that Thesis is the best premium WordPress Theme on the market. Currently 1.8.4 runs excellent and much fast than prior releases.
