5 Yahoo! SiteBuilder Introduction Congratulations on choosing Yahoo! SiteBuilder to build and maintain your web site! If this is your first time building a web site, there are a few basic concepts you might want to consider before you begin. Please pick a topic from the choices below: Basic Site Design Basic Page Design Going Online How to approach the overall design of your web site. What to consider as you build individual web pages. What happens when you publish your web site. Ready to take the next step? For an introduction to some of Yahoo! SiteBuilder's basic functions, please read the Yahoo! SiteBuilder Getting Started guide.

6 Introduction Basic Site Design It's important to give some thought to your site's basic structure before actually building your web pages. A web site can consist of a single page or hundreds of pages linked together. You might find it helpful to sketch out a simple tree structure or page hierarchy that illustrates the relationships between pages. This will make creating your site-wide navigation a lot easier. How many pages will your site contain? Which pages will link to each other? What information will you present on each page? Be sure to consider creating a navigation bar for use on your web pages to help your web site visitors find their way around your site. Feeling stuck? Take a look at some web sites you like. What about them do you admire? What makes them effective? What about them can you reproduce in your own site? Previous - Page 1 of 3 - Next

7 Introduction Basic Page Design Once you've determined your site's basic structure, think about the design of your individual web pages and the actual content you'd like to include on each page. Browse through Yahoo! SiteBuilder's templates to find a template style appropriate for your site or to gather design ideas. Keep It Simple Yahoo! SiteBuilder's templates incorporate good web page design principles, like simplicity, clarity, consistency, and balance. Try to keep these principles in mind as you build your own web pages. Create an Effective Home Page The most important page in your web site is your home page. Be sure to create a compelling home page that clearly communicates the nature and purpose of your web site. You don't need to include all of your web site content on your home page. Instead, use your home page as an introduction to your web site and then provide links to additional pages that contain the rest of your content. Keep Up the Good Work Next, build supporting pages that reproduce the general look and feel of your home page. This will give your web site a more cohesive, professional appearance.

8 Introduction Going Online Once you've finished building your web site, you will want to make it available to the public. Yahoo! SiteBuilder makes it easy to publish your site to the Web when you have a Yahoo! Web Hosting account: Just select Publish to Yahoo! Site... from the File menu. When you publish your site, all of the files that make up your site (such as web page files, image files, and sound files) are transferred across the Internet to Yahoo!'s web servers. Yahoo!'s web servers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve the files requested by your web site visitors. Previous - Page 3 of 3 - Back to Beginning
