    Hi! I'm Robin and I have been engaged in web design for over a year. It's a short term, but I already have some experience in this area and I want to launch my website on this topic.

    Yes indeed. I've teaching about this for years. Knowing the foundations of coding will make you much better with Wordpress because at some point you will be working with code. And knowing code will give you a deep understanding you would have otherwise. The IWD course will kickstart your career either way.

    Book nor needed with the HTML5 course. All my courses are designed to stand alone.

    Books( most of them) will provide you the basics. But to really understand the concept you need to work practically. Try playing with the codes. You said everything is going very well. Then no need of book. Just make the note of whatever you learn.

    A few things will cause your site to not appear in the search engines. First thing is to be sure this line of code IS NOT in your pages: <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow"> ... The above code tells the search engines to ignore your page and any links in the page. Instead, use this code: <meta name="robots" content="all"> You can learn more here: https://developers.google.com/search/reference/robots_meta_tag Check out this screenshot for details:

    Type "Site: your domain" in the google search and they will show you the pages which are indexed.

    You tell them that you are a web developer, not an SEO consultant. Go hire an SEO consultant. If they want you to do it, there's an extra charge - get them to pay you a monthly retainer to manage their SEO needs. If they don't like the results they can cancel anytime. This falls into the bracket of managing customer expectations. Also putting people off getting you do silly work. If you don't want to do it, put your price up so they don't ask you to do it... or you're happy to do it because you're getting paid well.

    Hmmm ... Sounds like a MAMP specific setting issue. Worst case, you can put that code into a separate file, and use PHP includes to include it.

    Hi all. I'm new to Killersites, so I'll give my, hopefully, quick intro. I have a career in broadcast audio but started thinking about programming for fun, and maybe a side job. I have been doing an open courseware class on programming with python, which has been good. Although you don't get tested and there's no feedback. On my YouTube feed I see programming videos and recently Stefan's videos came up. I was impressed by his direct manner and how he speaks with clarity. I wrote him for some advice on programming vs. web development as a freelance job. He responded quickly, which impressed me. So I just signed up for the web developer course. Once I get a little further into it I'll probably get the freelancer course, because I will need help with that! I am going to finish off the programming with python class. But my focus will be on the web development course. My goal is to have a side hustle that I find satisfying and I can make some good money.

    Finally i can say that i found a home - this community... So I am 32 y old junior web developer that bumped into many walls and obstructions and never got full commitment to start freelancing career. Since 2002 I am working with computers. Started as Computer Repairs guy in neighborhood installing Windows XP ( cracked one ) for a 10$ price. Yea in Croatia it was not a problem to use Torrents and enjoy the world of stolen software Well in my Country it was hard to find a work in IT, and because i needed to bring food to my family i started working as a Heavy Truck Driver. I now live and work in Germany. Well my education goes really on many sides and now its the time... This is what I know as a junior guy (finished some boot-camps in Croatia and drop off after 2 years of University): HTML, CSS C#.NET, ASP.NET, ADO.NET, MSSQL ( i left those technologies 5 years ago cos in that time VisualStudio IDE needed to be payed (funny-now i pay for PHP Storm )) PHP, MySQL ( did not work with it for a last 3 years-yea long brake) Photoshop, Lightroom ( I was doing some professional photography - Canceled subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud ) Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo ( best switch ever ) So after a long brake and with a support of my family i will use my next 2-3 months (maybe more) to come back at a track once again... I had bought Interactive Web Development Course and i know it was the best thing i could ever do! ( also using books from Jon Duckett - HTML&CSS; JavaScrip&JQuery) My plan is to work as WordPress web developer - but who knows: “Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans.” I will do my best to be active in this community and support other users with my basic but overall all around knowledge - While helping others i help myself as well... I will share all my experience during this road trip - especially because i will do it from Germany ( EU ) and i really don´t know German language ( only basic ). So i need to find solutions to register small business in Germany, find all EU translations, find coworkers, find a ways to contact costumers who do not speak English etc... Who knows: Maybe it will be helpfully to someone... Well I am sorry that i had written Harry Potter Book over here Wish you all the best

    I'm new to web development, but I do presently run my own lawn service business with my wife. Getting customers is the hardest part, of probably most businesses. From what I have heard and tried myself, creating content is the best way to get customers. First off you need a site, then you need to optimize it for SEO, meta tags, keywords, relevant terms in the text of the site. You'll need to set up Google My Business to recognize it. Including a blog on the site for you to publish short articles and images would help. You'll also want to set up a Facebook page for the business, and accounts through Twitter, Instagram, Google+. Videos on Youtube would also help. All of this stuff will point back to your site and should slowly increase your ranking on Google. These are just some of the basics. You'll have to do some other things to get the flow of customers started. Try getting on Upwork, maybe try Craigslist, Youtube videos giving advise to non-techies about websites, with a little helpful self-promotion, would probably be a good way to start funneling people to your site. Stef has some courses on this stuff. I haven't tried them yet, still learning the basics of web dev. John Morris on also has a TON of videos about getting customers through Upwork, you might check those out. I have a close friend who works for a SEO service firm. I plan to eventually give them a shot once I start the ball rolling. He says they are very good. This is kinda my general game plan anyways.

    Thanks for the reply. I should have been more patient since the box model of CSS was my favourite part of the course, exactly what I was looking for.

    SEO means Searach Engine Optimization. Google search engine robots works with specific algorithms and as per those rules your website must include meta tags like description, keywords and alternate tag for images. If you want to know in details then Google it with "Seo trends"?
