Javascript may not be as powerful as Java and Python, but it definitely does its job well when it comes to UI design, speed and building interactive web applications. It is also a vital programming language when it comes to developing mobile apps, games, and desktop environment applications.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac

    1. Hi Jan, its great to hear from you. Thanks for checking out our website and appreciate the feedback.

      About the topic of promoting your website, our team relies on a variety of tools and strategies to help get our websites ranking highly in search and these include some of them since we use WordPress as our main CMS for all websites;

      1. Content strategy: We rely on a content strategy that helps us build engaging and timely content for our readers. It is not an easy task but once you have a goal and a laid out plan. With time, all can become easier.

      2. WordPress SEO Plug ins: As you had earlier stated, Facebook and Google Adsense aren’t getting any cheaper. We have also noticed a drastic change in several other platforms when it comes to online marketing. However, despite the set backs we have been able to improve our SEO using WordPress plug ins such as SEO Ultimate and Schema which have greatly helped us.

      3. About your website: We have had a look at the website and its not that bad at all when it comes to content arrangement, navigation and being a light website which makes it easy to load. However, we recommend you use a different font as the current seems a bit hard to read. In case you’re running WordPress, you can try playing around with different themes that will offer a nice touch in visual appeal. There are many wonderful free WordPress themes out there that offer amazing features.

      4. Content/blog arrangement: After we reviewed your website, we noticed that the content seemed so squeezed up and lacked proper organisation in terms of how you place headers to emphasize a point, paragraphing, lack of featured images and how videos were placed into the content.

      We believe these areas need to be worked upon so as to make it easy for readers to navigate the site.

      5. Menu and footer: The menu and footer need some attention as they lack a good number of basic things one expects to find there such as page and social links, location, copyright information and so forth. There is a lot of content online with great examples of well built menus and footers. There are also themes that come with them already set for you and all you need is to edit them to your liking.

      Adding links to websites: That’s a wonderful idea, link sharing is great but we need to come up with a plan on how we are going to effect that. Will it be through guest blogging, Ads or any other option. We are open to ideas and will be glad to work with you on that aspect.

      Other than that, the color theme, logo design and use of light images to load site faster are a bonus. You did well in that area. The information you offer is also very informative and can help many find financial freedom in their respective areas of life.

      All you need now is to work on theme/website layout and visual appeal and you will be set and most importantly the content arrangement and placement.

      Thanks again for checking us out. You can reach us through our contact us page to discuss more.
