Web Design and Development

Web design and development are the terms for the work required to build a website for the Internet, or more succinctly, the World Wide Web (WWW). There are several stages required for building a website:

1. The first stage of web development includes planning, research, architecture, wireframing and sitemap creation. It also requires no small measure of creative writing and skill with the technologies that may best represent the client web site.

2. The second stage includes the design and modification of that design through various mockups intended to allow the client to get an idea of what the finished product will look like. These designs can be simple, one page desktop designs or they can include designs spanning what the site will look like on various pages across multiple devices such as electronic tablets and smart phones.

3. The last stage includes writing the content of the site in great detail. Writing using easily understandable language, appropriate headings and subheadings, and of course with a mind to proper SEO. This stage also includes properly programming and developing the technologies that are to be used in the final web site product. Quality is of utmost importance in this stage.

So I'm back online .. for the moment anyway. We'll see what happens once the domain name starts getting moved over to the new host. Between the domain itself and the name server transfers I'll be surprised if all my zone records remain intact. Still, the gears are in motion and things are starting to come together. 

Speaking of things coming together I managed to get the Facebook API to work again, which is what allows me to post these little blurbs on this site and others all at the same time. This is very handy for those looking to bring traffic to their main website and to build their presence on the Internet. The Facebook apps system was much more difficult in this regard than I originally anticipated but it looks like it came down to something relatively simple - clearing all my sessions! Once I logged out of everything including my own site (and clearing cookies, just in case) then logging back into the development tools on FB everything 'just worked'. 

So that's it for now. This is partially just a test to see if my posting system is back in working order so it's not very informative. I plan on posting a more technical explanation later as well as various articles on SEO, social networking for business, etc.
