Anyone can build a gorgeous Web site about you, your people, and your business (and charge you enormous sums for it.)
Building a business Web site that works is all about the right approach and a strong foundation (95% of Web site building companies miss this crucial step to online success).
After consulting with different owners about their website I realized that none had done the proper research to build it, and often the job was given to the designer who offered the best price. Even the expensive ones lacked the proper SEO to properly identify what the pages were about. These sites rely now on PPC campaigns to get clicks.

Hence the first step to proper website building should be RESEARCH first.
What the webmaster should do before building a site? Perform a thorough SEO keyword research based on your business theme. These are the words potential customers enter at Google (and other engines) to find you (instead of competitors)
From the outline of high-potential keywords that can be used to create your site's content and generate traffic from Search Engines, keywords are highlighted in a site keyword report, and an SEO blueprint is created.
A site built without this solid process and flawless execution is a site that is predestined for failure.
Websites built with the proper foundation succeed.
How do you develop your site after it's launch? How much business you want from it? If you want more business the best way is grow your site adding pages, because pages increase the changes to get organic traffic easily. Off course, if you are a great social media writer and bring thousands of people to your site with the power of your "pen" that's great.
Personally I found that the number of pages plays a very intrinsic part in order to be found by search engines. Business owners should understand that their 8 or 10 pages (not optimized) website is one of the reasons for not having traffic. (It does not take a rocket scientist to figure this)
Well, do you know what Google guide calls a small website? A 250 pages website.
