      In my experience plain HTML websites do seem to rank a lot quicker that using platforms such as WordPress. I'm not saying that this is factual, it's just based of my own experience. I have no clue as to why this would be and I haven't done any hardcore testing on this theory but I've experienced it more than a few times.

      Wishing you much success!

    WordPress is the route to go as there is so much going for it in terms of ease of posting, plugins and general use.

    With branding in mind, why not use the name of your youtube channel? This will give your brand a stronger voice and linking between them will be congruent.

    If youtube channel is not branded, how about something like webtechtutorials.net which is available at the moment which would give a solid key to your business brand.

    Well done on your channel income. That is a great start! To get more monetization, how about selling pdf books on web and computer tutorials - linked to your Youtube channel?

        Remember to do a good analysis in your competition of you niche. Search for keywords that you can have good luck to rank in search engines. Always keep in mind that Content it is the king of Internet if you have very good and valuable content you will be reward it. If you have already spot your competitors you can take a pick with tools to see what are the keywords that they are ranking and in some cases keywords that they might be paying for. You can go to compete.com and type the websites or SEM Rush etc You can get Market samurai to guide you about the competition and SEO for each of your blogs. There is an ocean already of content but very crappy most of it. Once you start creating your audience dont forget to always ask for emails and send dripping great content to your subscribers that would keep the engagement. Everything else will come by itself after that.

    Thank you
    First off, it's great that you have some HTML and CSS experience. This will help you down the road if you run into minor problems or if you want to implement a value or code in your own way.

    Secondly, Informatics is a very large arena, so is computer tutorials. These two topics are two entirely different markets and so is website tutorials. I'm just giving you a heads up, this is a big industry you're entering. You need to give your potential audience something to remember you by.

    Now, about earning money. This should not be your primary focus at the moment seeing as this is a brand new website. Though with you already finding some success through Youtube I'd take it that you have some skills and experience. The traffic from Youtube might hopefully benefit your site.

    But some ways of making money in the future with this concept would be e-books or informational products that gives the buyer exclusive tutorials and guides that are highly detailed and being something that's at least hard to find for free online (I already know a few tutorial websites for tech that gives great info for free).

    If you manage to attract a lot of traffic, at least 30.000 page visitors a month, then selling ads and banner spaces to companies is a good way to make some money.

    A membership area where you share exclusive content which would require the visitor to pay a monthly fee.

    Etc.

    There are many ways to make money online, in fact I recently posted a thread here on WF asking people to share different methods of making money off a website.

    Regarding the domain name, I don't know because your site features computer tutorials, website tutorials and informatics. It's hard to narrow down a catchy name, at least for me.

    To recap:

    1. Focus on creating good, unique content.
    2. Promote your website in way that makes you look like you're in it to help people, not earn money.
    3. Narrow the topics down a bit. Tutorials is a word that seems to be close to you, so go with that to begin with.
    4. Think about money later, online marketing is a marathon, not a sprint.

    Hope this helps,

    Please tell me if I missed anything!

        There's no advantage for ranking for either one you choose, wp or html.

        The only difference is that most HTML sites aren't littered with unused code and wp themes usually are. And with WordPress, there are SEO plugins that help with a whole bunch of time-saving tasks like building a robots.txt and writing descriptions and titles, if you're not great at manually inputting them yourself.

        You still use html with wordpress.. It will be so much quicker and smoother if you do it on WP man. When there is lots of janitor work to do on a big site you don't really wanna be hunting through code to find everything

    I would definitely use wordpress as that is the most popular platform and would make your website and information you provide more relevant to your website visitors who are currently using wordpress or thinking about setting up their own site using wordpress.

    As far as monetization, you could use your authority in the field to offer periodic product reviews that provide affiliate links - examples might include premium themes, plugins, hardware, software, etc.

    As a member has already mentioned, be sure to give your personal branding some serious thought, because YOU are the one thing that can set you above your competition. So, having not had a website or domain up to this point means waiting a few more days to iron out the branding will be time well spent. I'm sure the members here can offer some great advice in this area.

    Do plan on having an optin form on your site for email capture to market to your subscribers. Example: Enter email to subscribe to my daily xxxxxxx Tips. Or give them a multi-day video course send right to their email in exchange for their email. And this will give you additional opportunity to suggest related products and services. Just keep in mind the quality of your offers and the also don't just spam your list with offers. If you remember to always give killer content for free all the time and hit them with a quality offer some of the time, then people will be willing to purchase "stuff" as per your expert suggestion.

    I would also keep building your youtube audience, and when you have your website up be sure to end each video with a call to action either to give social love and shares and/or direct them back to your site to see some other related content.

    Remember killer free content is a powerful way to build a large community that likes you. Once you have a large community the monetization will be the easy part.

    Find out what your biggest competitors are doing as far engaging their visitors and capturing emails. You can also subscribe to their email lists to see how they run their email marketing. Notice how they monetize their site and how they drive social engagement.

    Peace & Prosperity

    I'd also suggest wordpress, it's so much easier to manage and you can do so many things with it, as opposed to a simple HTML page. You have a ton of resources for it too (themes, plugins), so I'd choose WP if I were you.

    Some ways to monetize your site I just quickly thought of:

    1)Web hosting- Say that you will create them an easy wordpress website if they sign up under one of your chose hosting affiliates (web hostin usually pay anywhere from $80-$100 a sale)

    2)Sell wordpress site templates

    3)Become an affiliate with an SEO service that offers backlinking or traffic campaigns

    4)Create your own products that are tutorial based

    5)Not exactly related to your site per say, but create tutorials on udemy

  • Yunarel,

    Heads Up = Long Post!

    I. ONSITE and OFFSITE SEO

    A. Keyword Targeting

    1. Separate your exact match and long tail keywords into 3 lists. These are:

    • Generic Keywords -- You'll use this at least 50% to 60% of the time for your onsite and offsite content, as well as for your internal and external link anchors in your onsite content, and for your backlink anchors in your offsite content;

    • Branded Keywords -- You'll use this at least 25% to 35% of the time for your onsite and offsite content, as well as for your internal and external link anchors in your onsite content, and for your backlink anchors in your offsite content; and

    • Commercial Keywords -- You'll use this at least 15% to 25% of the time for your onsite and offsite content, as well as for your internal and external link anchors in your onsite content, and for your backlink anchors in your offsite content...

    2. Separate these keywords into two lists. These are:

    • Primary Keyword List -- These keywords should be used for your homepage, for your category links in your homepage, for your inner pages and posts, for your internal link anchors, for your external link anchors and for alt text of embedded images / photos in your onsite content; and

    • Secondary Keyword List -- These keywords should be used for your offsite content and for your backlink anchors...

    B. ONSITE SEO

    NOTE: When doing the things below, keep in mind the keyword targeting and placement strategies that I mentioned earlier...

    1. Information Structure, Website Structure and Internal Link Structure -- Your homepage should have internal links that point to your category pages. Your category pages should have internal links that point to your inner pages and posts. Your inner pages and posts should have internal links that point to your homepage, to your other relevant category pages, to your other relevant inner pages and posts, as well as external links that point to relevant pages in authority sites...

    2. Fresh Content -- In your homepage, your theme should show recently added content. This should have links pointing to its category pages, and to the inner pages and posts where this new content is found...

    3. Diverse Content -- Include images / photos and videos that will improve the overall presentation value of your onsite content for your target viewers. Also use descriptive phrases with your primary keywords in the alt text of images / photos that are embedded in your onsite content...

    4. Written Content -- Provide unique written onsite content. Use canonical tags in sections of your site that show excerpts or overviews of your content which also appear in other sections of your site...

    NOTE: If you're using WordPress, then you must use canonical tags for the content in the homepage that also appears in the posts itself and in other sections like category pages and most recent posts and so on...

    5. Boost Onsite Content Indexing -- Create an XML sitemap, a Google Video sitemap, a Google Image sitemap and other relevant sitemap types for your site. Then, submit these sitemaps via the Sitemap Submission function in Google Webmaster Tools. Next, generate a Crawl Errors report in Google Webmaster Tools from time to time. Then, use the Fetch As Google function in Google Webmaster Tools from time to time. Next, make sure that your new onsite content is always included in your sitemaps. Then, re-submit your updated sitemaps to Google Webmaster Tools. Next, repeat this process. Also submit your sitemaps to Bing...

    NOTE: If you don't know how to properly create sitemaps, then I recommend the Microsys A1 Sitemap Generator. This is a Windows software that you can use to generate sitemaps of various types for your site...

    C. OFFSITE SEO

    1. List of Offsite Content and Backlink Placement Targets -- Use your secondary keywords in Google so as to identify heavily trafficked, laterally and directly relevant niche-authority sites (as well as inner Web 2.0 pages of those sites). Use the Moz Open Site Explorer (OSE) to pinpoint sites and inner pages with decent to excellent DA (Domain Authority) and PA (Page Authority). Develop a list of offsite content and backlink placement targets, which can be around 70% to 80% dofollow and around 20% to 30% nofollow, and around 70% to 80% high DA / PA and around 20% to 30% lower to mid DA / PA...

    2. Placement of Offsite Content and Backlinks -- Regularly participate and initiate relevant discussions in your targets. Share your onsite content and try to place backlinks in your targets. Use your secondary keywords as anchors of these backlinks. Point your backlinks around 60% of the time to your homepage, around 10% of the time to your relevant category pages and around 30% of the time to your relevant inner pages and posts -- You can also directly contact the owners / admins / Webmasters of those sites for possible mutually beneficial guest posting arrangements, content syndication agreements and ad banner / text link / advert / mailing list ad placement deals. They'd most likely be responsive to your offers due to your frequent participation in their sites, because you'd be a familiar name to them when you contact them...

    II. EMAIL MARKETING, INVISIBLE OPT-INS & AFFILIATE MARKETING

    A. Mailing List Building -- An incentivized opt-in offer in conjunction with video marketing works well for tutorial sites. Generate ideas for your incentivized opt-in offer by browsing the cover stories and feature articles in recent issues of wildly popular, best selling offline magazines in your target countries, which should of course be relevant to your target audience. There are reasons why those offline magazines are selling crazy, especially since online publications give them good reasons not to, and some of those main reasons are the attention-grabbing, enticing and compelling attributes of those cover stories and feature articles...

    B. Affiliate Marketing Through Email Marketing -- Provide mind-blowing content in your follow-up non-promotional emails with value that can supplement the benefits provided by your incentivized opt-in offer. In your promotional emails, provide compelling recommendations of affiliate products that can provide value to your subscribers that can supplement the benefits they get from your incentivized opt-in offer and follow-up non-promotional emails...

    C. Invisible Opt-Ins -- Integrate Facebook retargeting and Bing remarketing code into the pages and posts of your site. This will allow you to continue promoting your incentivized opt-in offer (and your other offers) in Facebook and in Bing Search and in relevant sites with Bing ads. Your Facebook and Bing ads will be displayed to people who have already visited any page of your site but have yet to become your subscribers, while they're hanging out in Facebook, are entering relevant search terms in Bing and are spending time in relevant sites with Bing ads...

    III. VIDEO MARKETING TACTICS

    A. Youtube Traffic Funneling -- Funnel traffic from relevant trending, wildly popular, viral and top viewed videos in Youtube to your own videos. Do this by adding the same tags to your videos that are found in those videos, in order to increase the chances of your videos being listed in the related videos sidebar of those videos in Youtube...

    B. Video SEO and Human Viewer Optimization for Youtube Search and Google Search -- Both Youtube Search and Google Search look at titles, descriptions, tags, bounce rate, comments, likes, subscribers and number of views of videos when ranking videos. People look at attention-grabbing titles and thumbnails, enticing and provocative descriptions when clicking videos in Youtube Search and Google Search results. Strike an effective balance. SEOd descriptions are normally around 250++ words with long tail keywords aside from your secondary keywords. In your videos, entice viewers to leave comments, like your videos, subscribe to your channel, share or embed your videos across their social networks and blogs / sites...

    C. Other Relevant Video Repositories -- Syndicate your video tutorials in heavily trafficked video tutorial repositories. Also look at other video repositories like Dailymotion to determine if they accept syndicated videos. In Dailymotion, publishers can find relevant videos and embed them in their sites because they will earn part of ad revenues generated by those video embeds (the video author also earns a bigger part of ad revenues generated by those video embeds) -- This can widen the reach of your videos across your target market segments...

    D. Onsite Video Embeds to Generate Fans / Followers and Shares -- Syndicate your videos in your site (as well as other relevant videos that can provide optimal value to your site viewers and subscribers). Allow first time viewers to watch the first 25% of your videos, before locking it with a BECOME A FAN / FOLLOWER button. Allow fans / followers to watch your full videos, and display a SHARE message at the end of each video, which will entice your viewers to share your videos across their social networks (thereby repeating this process of getting more fans / followers). You can even display a custom message at the end of your videos that can entice fans / followers to grab your incentivized opt-in offer and become your subscribers...

    I think those'd most likely keep you busy. Cheers!

    NOTE: These updated strategies are based on recent results (from March last year to this month) that we've generated from test campaigns we've formulated and executed for tech-faq.com (mostly post Panda / Penguin / Hummingbird SEO tactics) among other sites of our clients (mostly multimedia sites with lots of photos and videos)...
