What You Really Need To Know About Your Food

Week 8 - And it starts to come together!!! Oh Boy!

I figured out something about SBI about two weeks ago:  YOU CAN’T BREAK IT! 

The only thing you can do is NOT USE IT!

SBI is set up so that even the most on-line rookie will do fine.  In fact, one of the thing that my instructor, Bernie, says is those who have never done much on the web before usually get a site up faster with SBI than those who come to SBI with experience.  Those with experience want to “tweak” SBI to make it work with what they are experienced with, while those who never have done anything before just follow the instructions!

Anyway, I’m a combination of both – I realized that I was getting caught up in the details that I really didn’t need to worry about.  So I pressed on.  My site might have a whole new look down the road, but for now, I’m just focusing on the content.

So, this week we started talking about how to get traffic to the web site in addition to the strategies that SBI does with the search engines.  Pretty cool stuff, but I was more excited about what happened without me knowing about it.

You see, I had (as of the day of the class) 16 pages total.  Without me doing ANYTHING to let Google know about my site, I was getting traffic… possibly thanks to everyone here who is also checking out my site as we go, but also there were a number of people who “stumbled” on my site.  As of right now, I’m averaging 11 people a day looking at my site!  That’s with my half completed and changing web pages!  Wow!  I was blown away!  SBI works!

So… what am I doing… in addition to the work that I have done on tweaking the pages currently written (poke around and see how they are looking – I’m really going to recommend that you check this page: http://www.food-safety-and-you.com/HowDoesFoodGoBad.html ) I’m back to writing more pages.

If you’ve ever thought about building a business website, regardless of your experience, take a close look at SBI.  I’ve been blown away… what I’m learning here will change my strategies and plans for the future!  One of the people who works for SBI told me that “Anyone who is willing to work and knows or wants to know about something can build a successful web site”.  And I believe that is true!

Thanks for poking around – my home page is http://www.food-safety-and-you.com.  If you haven’t done so, please do my quick survey at www.tinyurl.com/FoodSafetySurvey.This is helping me put together my plans for down the road!

Until next week!
