Website Creation Tools:
My all time favorite tool for web design! This is one of the most
user-friendly website creation tools I have found. You can create a free blog or
website with this tool or upgrade to the Pro version for only $50 a year for 10
Purchase a domain name through this website. You can also create your website through GoDaddy which seems to be pretty user-friendly.
Free website creation tool with thousands of templates. Pretty easy to use
once you get use to it but not so easy to set up unless you know your stuff.
Also allows you to create a free website but I find confusing to set up.
Kind of like a blog but you can invite people to join your page and have editing privileges.
Email Addresses for Your Website:
You can sign up for Gmail for your business and get up to 10 free user
accounts with your own username (ex. email@example.com) Unfortunately, they are no longer offering this free service! Click here to find out how you can still get one free email account with your domain name.
This is a very cool website that I just discovered! If you need HTML code for a text link or picture link this website will write it for you! All you need to know is the URL of the link (and URL of the image if you are using an image) and it will write the code for you.
HTML Map Creator
This website allows you to add links to an image. This is great for blog hops where people click on different logos within an image to go to different blogs. The only downfall is you can't save your work on the site so make sure you have the correct links before you start!
HTML Color Tools:
HTML Color Code Chart
Select a color you like and this website will give you that color's html
code. You can also enter color codes and it will show you their color.
Upload your own pictures or logos and this website will give you the html
color codes of your pictures! This is extremely helpful for creating a beautiful
color coordinating template theme for your website.
Royalty free customizable clip-art can be found on this website. You can
upload your own pictures and turn them into unique clip art...it's really fun
Search Engine Optimization (SEO):
Search any domain name and it will tell you who (if anyone) owns it. You can
also find helpful information such as your websites SEO score and suggestions
for improving it.
Sign up for a free account to monitor your website's stats. See where traffic
to your site is coming from, how many hits your site gets each day, what pages
are most viewed, how long people stay on your website and much more.
Google's Webcache Tool
This is a really neat tool that shows you what Google sees when it sends out
its Google Bot tool to search your page in order to categorize it. You can enter
your own domain name in the address bar at the top of the page...just replace
the current website's address (www.reviveresale.org) with your website's
address and your page should appear. Click on the "Text-Only Version" on the
top right corner of the page to see what Google sees. Since Google cannot
read pictures it will be helpful to add alternative text to your images.
Broken Links Checker
This website will find all the broken links on your website. It gives you the URL to where the broken link is found and will show you the code for that specific link so you can go back and fix it.
