Week Two: How to Create a Site Map

by Gigi Griffis

Welcome to the Free Online DIY Website Workshop—a seven-session course that’ll help you launch a website (even if technology baffles you). If you’re just now joining us, I recommend starting at week one.

Welcome back, friends!

This week is all about site maps. Which means we’ll be identifying the pages you need on your site, putting them in a logical user-friendly order, and naming them for your site navigation.

So, you have a site map…now what? The answer is that it’s time to write your website content. Head over to week three where we’ll talk about writing for the web, SEO, how to incorporate your strategy into every page, and more.
