1 Create a website or Buy a website? on Sat Apr 14, 2012 8:33 am

In case you want a website to earn from it (say by adsense), what way would you prefer?

Will you create a whole new site or buy a ready-made site from website market places?

Creating a new site requires lots of efforts for design, hosting, and writing content, seo etc. while buying a ready-made site may cost much but it comes with a design and content Razz

---
If I'm going to create a site just for adsense profit, I'd first try to search on website market places and buy a site if a good one comes at reasonable price; or I'll create a new one.

Which option would you choose? and why?

I would download a ready-made web template, find cheap web-hosting and just change the text on the template.

Simples.

I think its not that simple.

> Buy a domain
> Get a good hosting
> Download a good template
> Customize the template for perfection
> Write content (can take months)
> Add them to the template
> Upload the website
> Submit to search engines
> Work on SEO

It will take almost a month or more to develop the site and minimum 6 months for traffic to be built.

Buying a site will come with domain, hosting, template, content, search engine ranking (not always on 1st page though) and traffic.

That is a fair point. Personally, I would play it by ear and decide what dependant what on a) what the site will be about, but more importantly b) what time frame I have.

Creating a website is may be cheaper than buy a web site. If create new website it need a lot of time to develop it and upload it, after that it needs SEO work. If you want a web site for Adsense purpose only it need good content, traffic, design than after you will get an Adsense code. Better you look for buy a site, it is easy, if your domain is old and site has good content and good traffic, this will help you to earn good money from Adsense. You need to update or add new and fresh content on the website, it will help you a lot.

Creating a new website is time consuming so it is better to buy ready made website. which saves your time and you can easily modify it also.

As a webmaster I'd say build your own template,Then find a good free host like 000webhost or paid if you want fancy features ( Paid hosting is not worth it). Then buy a domain for your site transfer it to your host and you got all you need. From then it's just all about getting people to come there. It's not to easy with the coding but the rest is simple.

Basicly these are the steps

-Code your site
-Get it hosted on a good host
-get a domain and trafer it
-get people to come

That should take all about 3 weeks to I'd say 1 month in total.

I don't agree with you CodeMaster.

Firstly, free hosts are not reliable due to their down times and lack of support. Paid host don't give 'fancy' features but all necessary features and good support plus reliability and uptime. You should choose a good host.

Coding a layout would take about 2-3 days but making it perfect with content, inter-page linking, on-page optimization etc would take about 15-30 days in total.

Getting a hosting, domain and uploading the site can be done within 24 hours. But getting people to come can take 6 to 12 months Razz Optimizing site for SEO, promoting it on social sites and getting ranked in search engines is a long process.

Ultimately, it can take upto 1 year to get a stable site and good flow of traffic to generate some revenue.

While, if you purchase a ready-made site, you get a fully coded site with all the content ready in it. You just need to make nominal changes as per your needs. These sites usually have some amount of traffic and search ranking, so it becomes easy to take it on top of search rankings and build traffic.

Thats my thinking Smile

Then again if you code your own site you know you truly built it yourself and then all you have to do is upload it to your ftp. Like I said you really won't need paid host if your designing your site yourself. Now I maybe kinda wrong about this but I feel that if you code the site your self you've put in the effort. You can use a template if you'd like.

If you were to have a paid host with a website pre-built then you haven't truly built it yourself. Getting a domain if you've found your host should only take a good 5 to 10 minutes maybe less.

Now as far as SEO goes you can have people advertise for you and if what your doing on your site is good then people will come more and more. As far as time goes for submitting to each sear engine I will correct myself and say that will take all about 6 months. Or you can advertise on sites which should take 2 or 3 weeks depending how much advertising you do.

If we get pre-built site with good quality, we don't need to work hard creating a new site from scratch. I didn't mention in my previous post that writing unique contest is very hard and can take months.

A free host can never make a website successful. If you are serious about making a real website and making profit out of it, a paid host is a must otherwise you'll definitely fail! I'm not going to explain the reasons right now, use google Wink

If you think you can get people to promote your site (for free), you are absolutely wrong! No one works for free Wink and if you opt for paid SEO services, they will charge lot of money.

We should surely take a look at pre-built websites which are available for sale, when planning a website for adsense or something. But if you are creating a website for hobby or fun or showing off your coding skill, you can opt for the lengthy process Razz

It is always a better decision to creat a website than to buy a website.. Because you know exactly the details of the website you want to create compared to buying a website..

Id say creating a bran new one. Even if its time consuming at least you get...

1. The experience

2. The satisfaction you just created something from scratch

Creation of website is better as compare to buy a website.Because If we design a website then its totally meet our requirements and we can easily make changes whenever we required. If we buy a website then its difficult for us to make changes in website because we need a lot of time to understand the coding that is done by someone.If you need some guidance for website design go to link: http://www.introspective.co.uk/

But if we want to create something unique we should design a page. Of course alternative is ready template, especially for beginners but is not the same. Honestly now we can find a lot of builder tools, so even people without experience and knowledge of html can build something original.

I would prefer creating a website on my own rather than buying a website. Simply because we can make any changes according to our requirements when needed but in other case where we have bought a website it will be difficult to make any changes to it and it will take a whole lot of time to understand the coding done by someone else.
