|How to Build A Successful Website in 1 Year|
I'm completely new to webmaster as well as the idea of building a website; but a dear friend of mine has had terrific success with what started out small - about 5 years ago.
She mentioned to me that there is an article somewhere on this site called: How to build a successful website in one year. And frequently it is reposted.
It is my hope that someone knows where this article might be and could repost it for me (and others). Apparently it has about 22 steps which if followed will help someone create a successful site. My friend did all 22 steps very exactly and for her, it worked.
Thank you in advance.

Be aware that this was written in Feb. 2002. Much of it is still applicable but some of it is out of date now. For example...
|Keyword domains are out - branding and name recognition are in |
|Submit the root to: Google, Fast, Altavista, WiseNut, (write Teoma), DirectHit, and Hotbot |
|Head back to the Overture suggestion tool to get ideas for fresh pages. |
Thank you so much for your speedy replies -- typing too slow can be a virtue :) -- since I got two replies and now can't possibly lose this!
And BeeDeeDubbleU -- thanks for the heads up!
I'm loving this site already.
Simple formula: Create high quality content and promote the *%#^ out of it.

Say what!? ;-) Did you sleep through Web 2.0? [flickr.com...]
Hmmm: Quora, Twitter, Flickr, FaceBook, LinkedIn, Skype..
Are all examples of branding over generic domain names. Branding and name recognition are in bigger than ever. It was the entire point of web 2.0 domain names.

Raise your hand if you just got a bit teary eyed?
