Web Site Design and Development

Web Site Development Resources and References

Webmasters References, Resources and Tools

At one time this was the only index on the site with linked pages to references and resources for the topics listed in the Related Directories heading. As the page grew I have added new directories. Many webmasters have this page bookmarked so the related links area is just a convenience for them. 

Use this link to jump to the information not contained in the Related Directories heading.

Related Directories:

Almost all of the directories below have articles and tools developed or written by Da' Tmeister. The references and resources have all been reviewed before they are added to the database so in a sense this is a miniature version of yahoo! I seldom if ever add links to sites that have solicited them. I am adding a Reciprocal Link program to the site (or may have added by the time you read this), however at this time it is still in development.

Search Engine Placement Index:
References, resources and tools for optimizing your site rankings on search engines. This index will soon have prototypes of programs in development for analyzing, monitoring and reporting search engine positions.

Email Directory:
This entire directory will be helpful in promoting your site in discussion lists, newsgroups and publishing your own ezine/newsletter. 

Site Development & Style & Content Tutorials:
Not a lot here but there are a few articles that may be of interest to novice developers. The integration articles and tools may be helpful as well.

References and resources for HTML. I will be adding a search program that will search the HTML documentation for keywords.

Internet Scripting: 
About two and a half years ago I started a journey that is the primary reason this site has not been updated. It started with a course on internet scripting and from there I have been honing my programming skills. 

My new found knowledge has enabled me to build a  database driven site and add functionality for newsletter publishing and distribution. Most of the 100 or so programming links I have will soon be in this index. For now it is mainly what used to be on the HTML page under CGI, java etc. 

The promotion index has almost everything you need to promote a website. Many of the new tools in development will be automating or tracking activities covered in the index.

Marketing references and resources.
