If you ever want a website or have your content published to the internet to be read and seen by masses of people you will have to know the difference between getting online and having a web presence.
Just having a website or any content published to the internet does not give you a web presence, it only means you are online, in fact you do not even need to have a website to be online, just a simple webpage, picture, video or file can get you online.
Being online is when you publish anything to the internet; it becomes available online with a unique web address. It’s the same for anything published whether it’s a sound file or article image, you need to click on the link or type in a web address to find and display content.
Having a web presence is being visible to others online, it is being noticed and being found by people and search engines. That is the difference between just being online and having a web presence.
The first web presence requires that you go online so you must have some kind of content published to the internet, usually a website or page or even just images or videos with unique web addresses will do. Then you need to get noticed by search engine and become visible so people know of your existence.
One way to get online and develop your internet visibility is to write articles just like here at EzineArticles which already have a web presence so you are going to get noticed once it is accepted and published. To help increase the presence of your article try posting your articles unique web address to social network sites and let all your friends about it.
If you have a website or other published content on the internet than articles are a great way to boost your internet visibility by using your unique web address in the author’s resource box at the bottom of an article you can direct search engines and people to your unique web address thus giving visibility to your content.
It requires lots of different strategies to achieve a great internet presence and one easy way to start developing your internet presence is leaving a digital foot print over the internet with your unique web address and you will soon start to benefit from your efforts.
