Free Web Presence

Websites and Blog Sites

The best way to get free web presence is to start one of these blogs : WordPress, WebNode, Blogger, LiveJournal, or Squidoo. Squidoo calls their sub sites “lenses”. Use your business name for example mine is darkbluesun So I have a website with blogger: http://darkbluesun.blogspot.com (I know it says blogspot instead of blogger, I don’t know why they did that but it is, in fact, blogger.) And I have a Squidoo lens: http://www.squidoo.com/darkbluesun/ see? I found a name that was unique that I could use on most of my online profiles. But if I’d recommend any of them to start out with, it’d have to be Blogger it ties in to Google, if you’ve signed up for your Google account and they allow adding Google Ads where WordPress.com sub sites don’t.

When you setup your business site, if you use more than one word like I did: dark, blue, sun. You can capitalize them in a way that will separate them from each other in on your website address.

Features

  1. It builds a sitemap for you.
  2. It allows you to use iframes, so if you have a contact form created in Google docs, you can paste the iframe code in a contact page and voila!
  3. Of course it is compatible with Google Ad Sense. Google integrates everything right?
  4. I believe all of the themes that you can choose from automatically come with a search bar.
  5. Any links you create to outside websites from a sites.google.com/site address will automatically become rel=”nofollow” links. Learn more about nofollow and dofollow links in my article: 15 Easy Free DoFollow Backlinks to Your Website.
