Workshop Series Lets You Build Your Website in a Day

PLATTSBURGH, NY__ Individuals and business owners interested in building, updating and/or optimizing Websites can learn more about these topics in three seminars to be held at the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh on Tuesday, Oct. 11, starting at 10 a.m. in Hawkins Hall, Room 053D.

The three consecutive seminars are being sponsored by The North Country Small Business Development Center (SBDC), part of the School of Business and Economics at SUNY Plattsburgh, in partnership with Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) and the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks.

Nadia Korths, crafts marketing coordinator with ANCA, starts the series with a presentation, "Website Building, Easy as 1-2-3," which will introduce or review basic HTML in setting up a simple one- or two-page Website. This seminar will be held from 10 to 11:15 a.m.  

A great next step for those who have already built their portfolio Website is "Optimizing Search Engine Descriptions," which will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. This workshop introduces HTML tags that are hidden from the viewer and contain information about keywords and descriptions of your Web page. HTML tags provide search engines with the information they require and allowing users who are doing a keyword search to find your website.

The last of the three seminars is "Updating and Uploading Your Website," which will be held from 1:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. This seminar will help participants update their Websites with ease. 

Individuals work at a computer workstation for this hands-on, do-it-yourself workshop. Workshop fees are $15 per individuals per seminar or $40 for all three.
