About This Website
I've received a lot of questions regarding this website and why I spend so much time putting it together.
First of all, I love doing it; and secondly, I'm able to do it because I used a web host called Site Build It (SBI).
After months of procrastinating I finally took the plunge and set about putting my own Agatha Christie website together. The quality of the site and the ease with which I've been able to do it has surpassed my wildest expectations.
Thankfully SBI takes the fear out of the unknown by providing an easy to follow action guide. No website design experience is required, (which was just as well in my case). Each page you build is designed to be found by the major search engines and a very nice bonus is that SBI even shows you how to make a little cash with your site.
Although the site is only a few weeks old it's already attracting lots of visitors from the free search engines.
Try this out, when I did, I don't think I've been as flabbergasted since I first read the ending to Murder on the Orient Express.
Go to Microsoft Network Homepage and next to where it says Search the web, type captain hastings into the box and hit the search button.
The web results will tell you that there are 167,404 web pages containing the phrase captain hastings and out of those 167,404 results, my captain hastings page is number 1, absolutely amazing. I'm also already in the top 10 listings for 'Jane Marple', 'The Man in the Brown Suit' and 'Tommy and Tuppence'.
The Google advertising program(me) is called Adsense, it's completely free to join and really easy to set up on your website. Once you have, text ads appear on your site, you may have seen them while browsing this site.
Every time someone clicks an ad and visits one of the advertiser's sites, I earn revenue because Google pays me a share of what the advertisers pay them for that particular ad.
If you already have a web site but you're not using Adsense, what are you waiting for?
This really is a classic example of if I can do it, anybody can.
As you can see from the picture above, Agatha Christie said that 'Good advice is always certain to be ignored, but that's not reason not to give it.'
So with that in mind my advice is, if like me, you've always wanted to share a particular passion, just go for it. There's no better place to do that than the Internet. The response I've had already from fellow Agatha Christie fans from all around the world has been incredible. Whatever your passion is, you can rest assured that there are countless people out there who share it.
Go ahead and give SBI a try, it's a liberating experience, it has quite literally given me a new lease of life. It's
also completely risk free. One of the reasons I chose it in the first place is that they offer a FULL refund if it's
not for you, and there's no "trial period" or any sneaky catches.
