When you first start an online business there are many things that you don’t know and often find out later which makes it difficult to make changes.  So here are some online business startup tips to get you started off on the right foot.

The first thing you need to decide on is what niche you would like to be in,  for example puppy dog training, laptops, recipes, home business ideas, ipods, etc., etc.

Once you have decided on a niche you can then start researching some keywords for your niche.  After you have decided on your keywords, it is important from an SEO (search engine optimization) point of view to incorporate your main keyword phrase into your domain name.

It is not difficult to choose your keywords and optimize your website yourself, it just takes a little time and patience. I used an excellent ebook with easy to follow step-by-step instructions entitled 3 Steps To Search Engine Success.

So, having decided on your keywords will make it easier to decide on a domain name.  Your domain name will then portray what your business is about, thus making it relevant and easier for your visitors to remember plus the search engines will love it.

Your next step is to find a good, reliable hosting company and if you can register your domain name with the same service you will be killing two birds with one stone.  HostGator is a very reasonably priced, reliable hosting company where you can also register your domain name.

Once those formalities are complete your next step is to start building your website.  Firstly, create a title for your site and most importantly incorporate your keywords into your Title Tag – preferably at the beginning of your title for SEO purposes.

You can then focus on placing your keywords through your website including the H1 tag, image tags and at the bottom of your web page and use your keyword phrase to internal link anchor text on the page.

To help me improve my search engine rankings I used an ebook entitled 10 Ways To Improve Your Search Engine Rankings.

You are now set to start adding content to your online business website and to then choose the online marketing strategies that you are going to use to spread your site far and wide across the internet.

If all this seems too complicated for you, there is the option of going for an easy startup business where your website is set up for you on a WordPress platform, and you will find it is so easy to SEO your site with your own keywords using the SEO Plug-in.  Plus you will find there is excellent training provided too, to help make your online business startup much easier.
