Sorry I have been so long in responding to your email. You have taken on
quite a lot learning about computers and coding at the same time, but then
again it does make sense.
Until recently, although I could write macros (now outdated) which were a
form of coding, I had no idea how a computer worked. That limited my use
of it to a glorified typewriter, drawing pad and filing cabinet combined.
appropriate language for building websites. I have been running an SEO
business (search engine optimization) for a few years now, and the coding,
html and general construction of a website has a great bearing on its
"findability" in a search engine. I have found some wonderful-looking
websites with all the bells and whistles and fascinating graphics, that
will never get anywhere because their creators neglected to include
keywords. Amazing!! People pay a fortune sometimes to get these sites
built, but then they are useless as nobody finds them on page one of Google.
My best results so far have been getting my local hairdresser’s website up
from 24 hits per month to 1104 hits per month, just by adding a few words
here and there.
Now, by having a better grasp of how the site is constructed, I hope to get
even better results.
I am really semi-retired, and do this more as a challenge and focused use
of my time than with any idea of any future career. At 84 you learn to
think in short-term tranches.
I do wish you luck with your new project and would be interest in hearing
how you are progressing.
