Teoalida's old website 2009-2012


June 2012 updates

Posted by Teoalida on June 29, 2012 at 12:00 PM

I finished splitting the Housing around the World page, 8-9 new pages created (except for Hong Kong that I mixed with existing Hong Kong page with floorplans, resulting a messy page, I will decide later how clean it). China and Philippines pages were enlarged too.
Singapore HDB page has been updated, 2 more floorplans. Currently are 90 floorplans and 42 photos.
I added 2 more houses in House Design page.
Nothing new in Apartment Design but I am still working at something that will be my greatest project!
In Car Database I added a 7th file: Automobile Production.
I kept playing The Sims 2 and updated its page once again with new info.

After doing the Housing around the World update, I am experimenting again a drop-down navigation bar placed at top of page, together with the sidebar's expanded navigation bar.
Also I added flags on sidebar list of countries studied by me.
Webs.com introduced drop-down menus in 2010, I implemented them on my website on the right side, but it was a bad experience, 9 of 10 people did not click a page which have subpages (once the subpages menu appear, visitors click the subpages).
At the current experiment the pages which contain subpages is empty.

See how my website was looking in the past, 2 years ago and 2 months ago, compare these screenshots with the current layout.

Is better now... or not?

About me

I created teoalida.webs.com in April 2009 to publish my portfolio of projects made by me, primarily AutoCAD and architectural design, as well as articles about real estate, games, etc... all my hobbies.

Website grew to 50 pages and over 200 daily visitors in 2012, too much for a FREE hosting like Webs.com.

In 2012 I started a new website: teoalida.com using WordPress platform, paid domain name and paid hosting, and moved all my portfolio from Webs to Wordpress. The new website grew to 800 daily visitors as 2014 and my hobbies turned into BUSINESS!

Conclusion: starting a business using Webs.com was a huge mistake. I could have been richer today if I would have started with WordPress from first time.

Example: teoalida.webs.com/apartmentdesignold.htm
Moved to teoalida.com/design/apartmentplans

I keep on teoalida.webs.com only the home page and few pages about Webs.com, to teach other startup businesses to not make same mistakes like me, to turn people away from using Webs.com services, and to show you tricks for webdesign & SEO.
