How Do I Create My Own Website for Free?

Millions of people around the world are asking the question of how can I create a website and even more specifically, how do I create my own website for free? I want to walk you through the process of answering the question.

First, I Need to See What People are Searching for on Google

This is where I use Google Instant to start my research and to get ideas. This is a case where I am already pretty sure of what I want to write about but I still want to see if there are other great ideas I’m not considering.

I start by opening up Google and typing in my first idea for an article which is “How do I Create a Web Page?”

Google search
This subject is obviously covered well with 142,000,000 results showing up in just the past week. However, I’m a little belligerent today and decide that I want this to be one of my articles I cover on my web site so I press on to the next step.

The Next Step is I Need a Keyword or Keyword Phrase

I want to walk you through how I will answer the question of creating a website for free but first I need to look for a great keyword or keyword phrase that will catch your attention and draw you to my website so I can answer your question.

I’m going to use Jaaxy to do some important research. Remember this is a valuable part of the process that you really should not ignore.

My first choice to start my search is “how do I create a webpage.”

My first search on Jaaxy
This first guess for a keyword phrase wasn’t bad. I’m looking for the Average Traffic to be above 30, the QSR to be below 100 and the SEO to be at least 90. I also notice a few more interesting variations in the list:

  • how do I create a business facebook page
  • how do I create a website
    • how do I create a web page that makes money (shows up in the “Related” column)
    • how do I create a free website at Wealthy Affiliate (shows up in the “Related” column)

I’m somewhat intrigued by the idea of creating a website at Wealthy Affiliate so I enter that into the search bar.

The first thing that is obvious to me is that I don’t like this keyword phrase because it has a really low average traffic and an SEO that is lower than 90. The QSR is ok but this is a “no go” for me.

However, I do like several other related searches that showed up below.

  • How do you create a free website
  • How can I create a free website
  • How do I create my own website for free
  • How do I create a free website

There are several other search results that I am ignoring because they don’t make “human sense.” I really like the “How do I Create my Own Website for Free.” This has a decent average traffic, a low QSR and a pretty good SEO, so that’s what I have chosen for my keyword phrase and the title for this article.

I want to bring your attention to another great thing about Jaaxy and that is the ability to save your searches into “Saved Lists.” Several of the searches above I saved into a list and now these are readily available for later use or to compare now in case I was still not sure about what my keyword phrase would be.

I am now confident that I have a great keyword phrase that will give me a better opportunity to get ranked higher in the Google+, Bing and Yahoo search engines.

This is where I need to shift gears slightly and tell you about where I ended up creating my free website. I actually was able to create two free websites to start with and trust me when I say, two is enough to keep you occupied for a long time.

How I Created Two Websites for Free

I initially heard about Wealthy Affiliate from my son and I just knew it was a scam so I started my own research to help protect him.

Now, a little while later, I have created four websites with Wealthy Affiliate and am passionate about what I am doing and I am loving it every day.

So as you know, I started out to protect my son but there was no better way than to start with their “so called” free training. I mean, “how much can you really get for free, right?”

I was shocked that within a few days I had created my first website and had already started setting up my site correctly for the internet search engines. Here is a look at the course outline and everything you will learn in just the first course. Trust me, it’s a lot.

WA Free Course Outline
Let’s just say, by the time I finished the free course I was hooked. I had learned so much and had actually created two websites because I had all of these great ideas about what I wanted to work on. There was no scam to be found here. It’s just great training, hard work, determination, a great community and a little patience.

Here are the many things you will achieve after finishing this free course.

Course benefits and outcomes
Let me just give you a heads up now that I am not the greatest and most knowledgeable website designer and content creator this world has ever seen.

I am just a newbie to this industry but I was fortunate enough to come across absolutely incredible training and a community that is knowledgeable, helpful and encouraging.

There is nothing for me to sell here. You need to experience this on your own and you can do that absolutely free.

  1. Great article. It will definitely help a lot of people to make their first steps into website creation. I am using WA myself so i can confirm that it’s a very quality platform to use. You cannot go wrong with this one.

    1. Thank you for your confirmation and support. It is incredible training, especially for people like me who have had no experience with building a website. It’s easy to understand and the training leads from one thing to the next important thing and just makes a lot of sense to me.

  2. Wow, what a great article especially for those who are new to online and website work, really helpful and useful tips. Thank you so much for sharing and I will share it with the people I know too.

    1. Thank you. This is great for people with no experience or very little experience with the online world but many members in the community have a vast amount of knowledge which makes it a great place for even seasoned individuals.

  3. Hi Rick,
    Definitely a great high-level review for the beginners. It is great to use ABC technique too to come up with some keywords. Meaning if you have health niche, type ‘health’ and then ‘a’ in google search and see what phrases the google will offer and so on.

    1. The one thing I didn’t elaborate on was the ABC or Alphabet technique, which you are so correct on. It is a powerful technique that I will have to address later.

      Thank you for bring this up.

    1. Thank you for stopping by. I love using Jaaxy and Wealthy Affiliate to create things, which is something I never thought would happen.

  4. Hello there! I’m trying to create my own website and start earning with it but m problem is that I don’t know where and how to start. I read your review wealthy affiliate and how it helps on creating my own website. I heard wealthy affiliate before and I thought that it was a scam up until now after I read your article. I will surely try wealthy affiliate and hope that I could start earn money with it. Thank you for sharing this information.

    1. I was in the same situation when my son first told me about some online program to make money. It took about a week of trying to talk him out of getting scammed before I decided to check it out in order to protect him. 

      Well, that was just over 2 months ago and I have built two websites myself and am loving learning more about it every day. I can’t be more honest when I tell people that this truly is a great opportunity but you have to follow the training and work hard.

      Thank you for stopping by and please leave another comment when you learn more about it.

  5. Hi Rick,

    It’s really fantastic when you get free things that work as good or better than you expect. And Wealthy Affiliate appears to do that. I haven’t found any other training programs with that much free content.
    Is Jaaxy free as well?
    What happens after you finish the free course, do you have to start paying money to continue?

    Ed

    1. You can continue on with the free Starter membership. You still have two websites you can create, website backups, you own blog, video walk-throughs and, the affiliate program.

      From my experience, once I had gone through the free course, in which I learned a tremendous amount, I knew I wanted to learn more and there was much more training ahead I wanted. It was an easy decision for me as the Premium membership was at a reduced rate for the first month. I knew I could always cancel the membership before the first month was up if Wealthy Affiliate wasn’t right for me.

      The only problem was, the training at Wealthy Affiliate is incredible and I have learned so much and I love creating things so now I am sold and there was no reason to cancel my membership when I reached the end of my first month.

      Remember that I started out my Wealthy Affiliate research as a skeptic, believing it was a scam and now I have actually paid for a year in advance since you can save more money doing that.

      This is the real deal.

  6. Rick this is good stuff you have created here. Thanks for breaking down everything to the layman’s understanding and even members will find it useful and helpful. I will definitely visit more of your work.
    Well done lol.

    1. Thank you for the kind words. I may be a civil engineer but I don’t like using big words. I need to keep things simple and easy to understand. I appreciate your comments and look forward to you checking back in.
