Evaluation

Full project was very challenging and I learnt so much while working on it.

Things that I have learnt

  • building CMS
  • not dragging files from local server to remote server and the reasons why!!!
  • relational tables in MySQL
  • SEO – using Webmaster tools, Google Analytics, PageSpeed Insights, XML sitemaps, rich snippets
  • create full booking form
  • creating one page website – problems that might occur while designing it
  • discovery phase – persona, style approach, mood board
  • new wire framing tools
  • deciding what web hosting provider is the right for me and purchasing it
  • dealing with My cPanel – creating databases
  • and many more things that I came across to

Browsers

This website works in these browsers –

  • Firefox 34.0.5
  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Chrome 38.0.2125.111
  • Safari
  • Opera
  • Mobiles/tablets

Even thought I had to face some difficulties with this project, the biggest one was not working CMS as I did some mistakes in code and also dragged files around and that is why I had to create CMS twice from the begging) I think that this project was very successful at the end. I am happy how it all turned up and what I created.

 

SEO – XML sitemap

XML site maps are there for Google to easier orientate in pages of your website. This helps with SEO.
There is sitemap generator called XML-sitemap generator that helps you with it.

This is the main page of this website where you basically need to type full URL of your website and click ‘Start’.

This is what you get after your sitemap is ready to be used –

All you have to do now is to download your site map and put the file in root folder. In Webmaster account open ‘Sitemaps option’ and press on ‘Add sitemap’. Then just type name of the file and submit sitemap.

Job is done!

At the moment it tells me that I have an error there but I did all they recommended me to do and it is still there. Later on, I noticed that my sitemap is still pending in process window. This is why I decided to wait 24 hours and see if it is going to make any difference as I just installed it on the Webmaster tool.
