    Point of a freelancers site


    REGISTER TO REMOVE ADS


    People ask alot why certain designers don't have a website in a day and age where everyone has. I say you either have a site for fun or for a reason but the worst kind of people are those who have a site for fun but pretend it has a reason.

    Any thoughts?

    The point being why have a site unless it's used for something, if it's a business site, why have one if people can't find you.

    Alot of people have them but they don't always work how they should.

    I've always said if you're a Graphic Designer from say Wakefield and you type in "graphic design"+"wakefield" and you're not in the first 2 pages of google you shouldn't have a site as it will do no good. Also you need at least 500 sites linkiing to your own to have a good flow of traffic.

    I get what you mean and I agree too many people have a site just because they can it really serves no purpose.

    What tactics are best practices to get sites linking to yours.. like you have a forum, so thats easy to get linkbacks to. But what about like a regular web designer getting flow black.

    How would you approach that?

    It's not what you know or who you know, it's what you know about who you know !!!

    Website design you CAN afford
