    Ok, I am a total newbie to the web and affiliate markting but want to really make money. First off I need to make a website but I do not know how to do it. I do have 1st page 2000 an HTML editor and it is great. The only thing with me is the logistics of how to make a page or site. This forum is very big and I have looked around but I can't seem to find the answer to my question. What is authoring and pearl, javascript, coding? Where do I learn about all of this.

    Hello Fleetwood,

    Welcome to the ABW forum. As to your question on creating web pages and the HTML, JavaScript, Perl code languages and more ... well a basic concept of the HTML language in itself is the most important step to proceed.

    Creating web site theme is a tricky question to answer not knowing exactly what type of service you are going to focus on to even remotely begin to answer that, but there are plenty of excellent resources around the net. One particular good start is http://www.w3schools.com/html/

    As for JavaScript code, we have an excellent section covering as well as CGI. Other great listings are http://www.designerwiz.com/resources/cgi_resources.htm .

    Hope this starts to help you.

    DesignerWiz, a you got a great site I even went there before this post and bookmarked it. But your reply leads me to another question, I know that this question is hard to answer but I dont know what to make a site about. I was thinking just to start I would just promote a sales page or something. Or should I come up with a niche or my own theme, which would take a lot of time and money?

    Hello Fleetwood,

    We would recommend your viewing some template theme sites and gather the free sources you can get and try a few designs.

    Create some marketing text and have some viewers here take a look and give opinions. We are all here to help one another.

    Well if you want to make a sales site, just go downtown (or to the mall) and do a little window shopping. Whatever the top retailers are displaying in their windows is a good prospect for online sales.

    Thanks to everyone who has helped me. I know I keep stressing that I am new but I think people don't really don't feel what I am saying. I know nothing about internet marketing or website design. All I have done is read a couple of books and, luckly, found this forum. I really appreciate all the help that EVERYONE has giving me. I am at ground zero. But I have learned somethings on this forum and found some great tools also. Let me put it this way, I have no website, no knowledge on how to build one, except for a html editor a member recommeded, no real idea on how affiliate marketing works, so I really don't where to start. I went to www.w3schools.com/html and learned the basics of web design. What is my next step? I hope the hyperlink shows.

    If you really know nothing, this book could be useful - http://www.jasonkelly.com/mmo.html
    I read it a few years ago and would recommend it.

    If you need to find some templates to help build a site around ABW has some available here http://abw.infopop.cc/6/ubb.x?a=frm&...79&f=400603689
    Or you can try this site for a whole range of templates available for free use or links back etc. I tried the site today don't know if it is working right or not. The template part seems to be offline

    Just go out and make a website about something you know or like doing!

    What I recommend is that you put a few things up on a webpage and put it online just to get recognised with the tools you are using. You've said you are about to use 1st Page, well go and use it and put up some text and pictures.

    Get some scripts/codes form javascript/cgi sites to see what they do, download some free clipart, have a look at other websites (don't carbon copy them) and what ever. Keep asking questions around here, read old posts, read articles about design, search engines, promotion, etc and get confident with experience.

    Just #$%@$ do it!

    One very helpful resource I've found is http://www.htmlgoodies.com. It has a very effective format and excellent presentation. I go there all the time.
