I'm not sure what to put on my website. Help!

Take a look at competitors’ websites and look at how they organize and arrange their websites. Pretend you’re a customer and think about what you’d expect to find on your website. This page has some more detailed guidelines about what website pages typically have on them.

Does College Web Pro provide ongoing maintenance?

We provide technical support for the hosting, website editor, domain name, e-mail, and CPanel. If you get stuck, we can help you! But we prefer to show clients how to manage their own websites.

How long does the website design process take?

After I receive all content for the website, it will take me about 7-10 days to come up with a rough draft for you to review. The whole process, from start to finish, usually takes about 2 weeks. Some of it depends on how fast you can supply the website content.

How do I make sure my site shows up on Google?

As Bill Gates once wrote, “content is king.” That said, there are many things that you can do to get your website to rank highly on Google. My advice is to create a Google Business profile and a Facebook page, and link your website to both. You can drive traffic to your website by using a mailing list, social media, and offline promotional methods. By creating interesting and original content, you will organically draw traffic to your website from major search engines. For more information, check out my Search Engine Optimization page. I also recommend Michael Bluejay’s article, “How to Get Good Search Engine Rankings.”

How do I access my College Web Pro Client account?

Click the “Client Login” link at the top of this website. You can reset your password by clicking on the “Forgot Password?” button. Note: this is not necessarily where you need to go to edit the website. 

How do I transfer a domain name to College Web Pro?

First, you should contact the company that you originally used to register the domain name (e.g. GoDaddy, Vista Print, Simple Site). Ask them to unlock the domain name and send you the Transfer Code. Then contact College Web Pro and I’ll put in the transfer for you.

How do I connect a domain name registered somewhere else to College Web Pro?

If you want to link a domain name you already registered to College Web Pro, you need to sign in to where you originally registered the domain name (for example: GoDaddy) and change the nameservers to College Web Pro. For more assistance please contact College Web Pro.
