Today it is difficult to find a business that does not have its own website. Although many businessmen prefer to give work on it to the hands of designers and developers, it is still worthwhile to understand the basic stages of developing a website. With this knowledge, you can more closely monitor the work of contractors and understand the nuances of this process.
- Study of business
First of all, an experienced web developer will necessarily study your business, its target audience, needs and subtleties. These are the first stages of creating a web site. The information received during the analysis can be used during the next stages of development. Not understanding the specifics of business is difficult to create an Internet resource that can bring benefits.
- Building a structure
Creating the correct hierarchy of pages and the structure of the resource in general are the main stages of creating an online store site. Of course, for other websites, the structure is important, but in the case of online trading, especially if the online store has a wide range of products, it is absolutely necessary to think through and structure all the sections correctly.
This is a critical moment that can influence the further development of the resource. The correct structure allows search engines to get to all pages and adequately index the entire website as a whole. This is necessary to ensure that all pages appear in the issuance of search engines, and the resource has a good position in the search engines.
Also, an illogical structure increases the rate of failure – that is, the percentage of visitors who left the resource for one reason or another. Having become entangled in the sections of the website, it is easier for a user to leave it and to find something else than to try to understand the structure. A high failure rate in turn lowers the ranking of the website for search bots.
- Creating a design
Stages of developing a web site should go exactly in this order – first a structure and a framework are created, and then the design itself, that is the outer shell of the site, is developed for them. This consistency must be followed to save time and financial costs for the project. Re-design every time there is any inaccuracy in the structure is very difficult and requires a lot of resources.
- Implementation of design
After the design is created, the development of sites continues with its implementation. The interface should be put on the website and make sure that everything works correctly. At this stage, all links and buttons are checked. Developers are convinced that the interface works exactly as intended.
- Running and testing
This is the final action. Testing is important here. Developers check the correctness of all the functions of the site, monitor the download speed and errors that occur in the process. Often after testing, a list of bugs is made, which is corrected later.
The capitalization of the online retailer Amazon briefly exceeded $1 trillion. Microsoft and Google are next who can reach this amount.
On September 4, 2018, Amazon shares exceeded the $2050 mark and the capitalization of the US Internet Magazine for a while became more than $1 trillion. This happened exactly one month after Apple broke the historic market value record and strengthened its price on values above $1 trillion.
Apple has long rivaled Amazon about who will first step over the record sum. Given that now Apple’s capitalization is already $1.1 trillion, and Amazon’s performance fell to $994 billion, it can be safely said that the company from Cupertino defeated the brainchild of Jeff Bezos.
While the Antimonopoly Committee of Europe imposes on Google beggarly $5 billion fines, the American Internet corporation only increases profits and enters into a struggle for the right to become the most expensive company in the world. According to Statista, the top 5 most expensive companies at the beginning of this year were Apple, Amazon, Alphabet (parent company of Google), Microsoft and Facebook.
The indicators remained about the same range, with slight changes. Obviously, leadership remains for Apple, and Amazon is on their heels. The situation is most interesting with the third and fourth place: six months ago Google outperformed Microsoft by almost $16 billion. According to the latest data of Nasdaq, Microsoft’s capitalization is $856 billion, and Google – $837 billion.
According to TechCrunch, in the second quarter of 2018, Alphabet received $32.66 billion in profits, although it did not help Google in the fight against Microsoft.
Facebook certainly became the main loser of the season. Taking into account all the scandals, stock price falls and other swings, the market value of the social network fell to $494 billion. Facebook still remains in the top 5, but now the closest competitors from Google outperform it almost twice. Naturally, the company of Mark Zuckerberg is unlikely to get to $1 trillion in the near future.
Strangely enough, some experts have attributed the achievement of a $1 trillion worth to Tesla by Elon Mask. Of course, unlike others, this company does not receive the main revenue from information technology, but, in any case, the green economy of the future will be based on solutions that Tesla is already implementing. Mask himself, frankly fond of high-profile statements, said that after the acquisition of solar energy company Solar City, the value of the corporation could grow to $1 trillion within one day.
Analyst of the British bank Barclays Ross Sandler predicted that Amazon will somehow become a company with a cost of $1 trillion. The founder and leader of Amazon is the world’s richest man Jeff Bezos. In the international organization Oxfam, which is engaged in reducing poverty, it was estimated that Bezos personally could become the first trillionaire in the world withing the next 25 years.
