I made a web site using iWeb. You heard me, I made a web site using iWeb, Apple’s web site maker software. But don’t I own and run a web development shop – yea – I do. So why did I make a web site in iWeb? Because I can.
A few years ago, around when I got married, I purchased the domains ucitydentist.com and ucitydds.com. I bought them for my father-in-law, a dentist. Like most doctors, he was/is a bit technology-challenged, but I knew he was missing out on acquiring some new patients via Google.
When I gave my keynote at Market St. Louis, I decided to finally put up a web page. Yes, a single web page at his new web page, University City Dentist. He has been servicing the St. Louis area since 1973 (yea, he is old) and his office is in a location of St. Louis named U-City or University City.
The main reason I made the web site was not to have the web site rank for U City Dentist type of keywords but to enhance his new and verified Google Maps Place page. All he needs is some positive reviews, like he has at Yelp already and he should show up in Google for keyword searches relevant to his services.
This is a major step for my father-in-law, so if you do drop a review, be kind.
Oh, and no making fun of the University City Dentist web page. I did use the “Made on a Mac” button, so it doesn’t get any cooler than that!
