Search Engine Optimization

A friend of mine told me that he had a well designed website hosted but he was not getting any traffic to the website. He was actually getting five hits per day, all from his computer.
I asked him how well he had optimized the website, but he did not have an idea on how to optimize a website.
I explained that for a website to become popular, it has to be optimized for search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Bing among others.
Optimization requires one to pay attention to website content, structure, keywords and also theme.

Different search engines have varying optimization requirements. It calls for hard work, dedication, focus and patience to get your website top on major search engines.

Web Design and Hosting in Kenya

I initially developed my first website 5 years ago when i was still a students at Kenyatta University, as a course work project. My lecturer was so impressed in the project that he advised me to host it and make it global. This website had nice features and had been designed using latest web design and programming languages. I then started looking for a good and cheap hosting company because my budget was quite limited. Actually, i was relying on pocket money. Getting a domain name and a reliable host was the hardest thing since most companies required one to have a credit card so as to register a domain name and buy web space.
I tried some web hosting companies in Kenya but most of them were very expensive and the affordable ones were only offering Linux Web Hosting and my website was built on Windows platform.
After many days of searching online, i finally landed on a company that offered what i needed: Affordable web hosting, domain name registration and also flexible mode of payment. I chose to pay using western union money transfer and in two days my website was up and running.
I learnt that web hosting companies in Kenya still have a long way to go.
Luckily, the arrival of fiber optic cable in Kenya will definitely change things and make web hosting cheap.

Fiber optic in Kenya at last

The long awaited fiber optic cable in Kenya is now live. It will definitely reduce internet costs a great deal. However, a month since its going live, consumers are yet experience fast connections and cheap internet. Some ISPs have already adopted the broadband technology but they only been rolled out to their corporate clients.
Kenya's largest mobile phone company Safaricom is yet to adopt the new technology and it has already switched its campaign towards broadband modems and provision of affordable internet connection to cyber cafe.
Many ISPs have disclosed that they will first have to recoup the hefty investment costs before reducing the connection fee and the reduction will be gradual.
