What You Really Need To Know About Your Food

SBI Lesson Learned.. or learning

So, here I am working on my web site, www.food-safety-and-you.com.  I had a challenge because my topic, food safety, really didn’t fit the plans that SBI sets up.  But, because I’m stubborn enough (and my wife says it’s a guy thing) I plugged away and worked on building the site.

So, I finished Phase 1 and was moving into Phase 2, when I had someone visit my site who has built a number of SBI sites.  They immediately gave me what I would call open heart surgery without anesthetic.  The thing was, in my determination to do this, I tried to ignore some of the warning signs that the warning that SBI gave me.  As a result, I had built over 60 pages with many of them set up incorrectly.  While you wouldn’t be able to see it from the visitor perspective; the errors were in planning the backend of the web site (what SBI calls Site Central). 

To fix them cost me a lot of time… and my wife sitting over my shoulder saying “How come men can never follow directions!”  (OK, if you’re married, you know what I’m saying – don’t get me wrong, I have a great relationship with her, but she does rub in her perfection every once in a while – and I can’t blame here).

So, I’m still making changes.  But the changes that I’m making are already paying off.  Alexa is a program that ranks web sites – I went from being just under 2 million down to 1,600,000 (or close to that) within a few days.  So, I’m still working on it.

The lesson learned?  SBI knows what it’s doing – I should have done it right the first time.  But, live and learn.
