Chapter 2. Creating a Web Site > Planning a Web Site

Planning a Web Site

Before you begin developing your Web site in FrontPage, there are several issues to consider and a few decisions to make. First, of course, is the question of what type of Web page or Web site you want to build. What is the focus of your design? Are you looking to create a personal page or site? Maybe you want to create a business site. Perhaps you're a hobbyist, anxious to display your extensive knowledge and imagery on your favorite subject, or a collector who wants to show off your best pieces in a personal, online museum.

After you've decided the kind of Web page or Web site you want to produce, you should consider the question of content. Stagnant sites will not draw repeat visitors, and if you want to generate traffic, you will have to update the material on a regular basis. Do you intend to generate all this content on your own, or will you be recruiting other people to produce the content? Content creation is usually the most overlooked aspect of Web design, but unless your ambition is limited to producing something such as an online family log, with photos of family and pets, birth dates, and a list of everyone's hobbies and interests, creating content might constitute your single greatest challenge.
