In this first paragraph, I should introduce myself, my business, my club, or my reason for building a Web site. I can use the subheadings below to give detailed introductions, or I can just summarize the introduction here. I could also give visitors tips for navigating my siteط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â‚¬â€Œwhatط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢s located under each button, for example.
Listing Site Updates
Under one of these subheadings, itط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢s a good idea to list recent updates to my site so that visitors, especially return visitors, can check out the new stuff first. For example, I could list the date and a brief description of the update.

I could also list updated news about my siteط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢s topic. For example, if my site were about a particular sport, Iط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢d could discuss the outcome of a recent competition.

Notifying Visitors of Site Enhancements
Another idea for my home pageط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢s text is notifying visitors about the enhancements I put on my site. For example, I want visitors to sign my guestbook or fill out my survey Form E-mailer to answer questions about my site, my business, or my siteط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢s topic.

Getting Rich Quickط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â‚¬â€ŒFrom My Site!
I might not want a large amount of text on my home page if I want to guide visitors toward my other pages. Instead of text, I can add othersط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢ buttons to this first page, and Iط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢ll be rewarded for people who click on the buttons. For example, if a visitor signs up for a Visa using the NextCard button on my site, I earn at least !

Behind the Scenes of My Home Page
Even if I donط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢t put much text on my home page, itط£آ¢أ¢â€ڑآ¬أ¢â€‍آ¢s a good idea to include hidden tools that will help me promote my site, so people other than my friends and family actually see it. For example, I could add meta tags, which are hidden codes that allow search engines to find my site. I could also install stats and a counter so I know how many people are visiting. If not many are visiting, submitting my site to search engines will guide more traffic to my site.
