Tag: Web site
In an effort to get my web site “out there” more, I have spent the last week researching Search Engine Optimization. I submitted a sitemap to Google, and I also created a Facebook fan page for my site. This required me to actually join Facebook, which I’ve been a little resistant to. My wife is pleased.
My new Web site design went online early Friday morning, July 30th. Since then, I have discovered a few issues that need resolved, so I suppose it is still a work in progress. I have also been reading about Search Engine Optimization, so I’m working on an xml Sitemap to submit to Google, as well as a couple of other things to make my site more search engine friendly.
I finally figured out a better way to embed my RSS feed on the main page of my Web site. I discovered a tutorial on www.sitepoint.com that really helped a lot. I was able to adapt the PHP script in the tutorial to my feed and it works great!
Still working on my Web site redesign. The basic layout has been done for a month, but I’ve just been fine-tuning it. I finished the home page and another page yesterday, and I thought I’d post a screenshot of the design. The text on the home page isn’t final, but the layout is. I finally got the RSS feed embedded using a script from rrs2html.com. I’m still exploring other solutions, but this one works well and I may stick with it.

Our second Web site for eBusiness Systems, T.W. Jones & Sons, is now online at a temporary hosting location. Most of the design was done by another member of my group, but the title was created by me. I also created a couple of basic design ideas for this Web site, but this one was chosen instead.
Here are the basic comps I created:
I am currently working with two other students on two Web sites as part of my college eBusiness Systems class. One of them is for the Pastry Pub in Cedar City, and the other is for T.W. Jones & Sons in Beryl. The Pastry Pub site is currently being hosted here, but when it is finished we will be migrating it to its own domain. The other one is not currently being hosted, but is only on a local drive at the school.
