can anyone give me a ball park cost of getting a new escort site up and running. Now I know it depends on what you want the end product to look like but there must be a rule of thumb that can be followed.Should be one that you can manage yourself quite easily. Ball park figures- thats all .

Thinking of going into the male escort business [ mature of course ] !! :)

adultwank - £0, but you may want to pay for some of the features.

moonfruit - £0

write your own html. (Remember you can design your pages in word and then save as html.) remember you will have to pay for hosting, maybe about £5 a month.

professional web designer. no idea.

you can buy a url for £6 + vat from low cost names. If you buy the url then if you fall out with your designer, then you can keep your web address. dont let a 3rd party control your url.

Professional graphic designers will charge you around £150-£250 per day to design a web site and should be able to do the standard 4/5 page static site in one day. Adding some common dynamic content like forums or blog would double that. Custom web site programming is a lot more expensive.

Take a look at http://www.69design.co.uk

All the sites there they seem to be at the top end from a visual perspective, so that will give you a comparison point to the A* and DIY options.

Build your own. Don't go with any "company! no matter how well recommended that controls or hosts the URL you have paid for.

Some control ladies by not releasing URLS or webdesigns that ladies have paid for when they fall out. (It happens a lot)

If you rent a domain name you can lose it-and any reputation you build up in a flash if the owner turns out to be a Dick.

If you are going to have a site built, pay for the pages when you have seen them -usually in image format, and upload them to your own hosting arrangements. Its easy. If you need help with choosing or using hosting or buying a domain name contact me and I'll be happy to help you step by step and share the experience I have.

I dont design websites or sell hosting or have any affiliate programms BTW.

Some hosting sites actually have templates and editing software. If not theres nothing like a wordpress site for a beginner. As easy as posting here and installed in seconds with a fantastico control panel.

My hosting costs around $90 per year. (just about £1 per week!) I can host as many sites as I want with that. No bandwidth limit.

Whoever the site is for be brave and be truely independent.

if you do go with a designer then make sure that you register the domain name yourself or in a name /account that you can alway access as helen says many webmaster /escorts fall out and there website is gone overnight

my webmaster steve from selectanescort is great - been with him for a few years now with no problems and he is very knowledable on the search engines /google stuff ect

but good luck

Yes I believe its a growing problem. It can be quite daunting for beginners but, I think the best 3 pieces of advice would be at least to....

Get your own hosting and register and own your own domain name. Keep a copy of all the files that make up your site.

To try to answer the original question...... How long is a piece of string.

Hosting about £50 .co.uk domain name about £5-£8 P.A. .com a little more at around £10 per year.

Any more cost would be fees for design, build, maintenance and optimisation. Optimisation is especially important if you want to be found by prospective visitors on Google and Yahoo searches rather than rely solely on directory clickthrough and 3rd part site advertising.

I have recently been costing a new site for my business (not escorting); some charge by the hour others by the page. Prices seem to range between £25 and 75/hour. The key issue here though, is how good the designer is at promotion, i.e. getting a high ranking on the search engines. My impression is that designing layout is easy; getting good ranking takes more expertise. A friend who started a book-keeping service found himself with a really good looking site, but if you searched "book-keepers and (his town)" Google did not find it. I'm also told there are agencies who will put work out for tender to web-designers based in India who very much cheaper than UK designers.

I only know from reseach and dissapointment :D that S.E.O. optimisation isnt an exact art.

It can take 12 months before a site shows - which is what Google informed me yet I have seen sites a lot less aged than that do very well.

Google does like an older site as long as it has behaved in the past if it has been out there before.

It can be beginners luck or hard work but eventually it happens. What I would say is avoid companies who offer a top ten placing in X number of days or weeks.

It wont happen and is a complete waste of money.

Its a bit of a mystery and even real experts cant work out just what the formulae is.

My own fourpenneth worth is. Meta tags. Keywords do seem to help despite google saying they dont. I think maybe theyre read as content and being high up they register well but I dont know for sure.

Content and keywords should be human readable, that is make sense to a human reader rather than a load of keywords.

'm also comming around to thinking simplicity is they key. It alwas amazes me when Im checking my positioning and what have you to find a site with just one or two keywords mentioned but its higher than a lot of what look like excellent SEO'd sites. Its a massive puzzle. I think its changes in a sort of "move the goalposts" way

Another tip is not to react too soon. Give your new optimisation time to mature. You might be fixing something that isnt broken.

If you do find the holy grail of SEO let me know :)

By the way Im no way an expert - I just know what has worked for me and what hasnt. Take professional advice and do lots & lots of research before you part with a penny or commit yourself.

Well I've been mulling over it for a while Ruth. There are a lot of women out there who would just like to be able to team up with a nice, handsome mature friendly and entertaining man and have him on her arm when needed. Also, he might be needed for advice or to look after things and problems that a lady likes to have a man look after. Sex would only be part of it and made available only when required by the lady.Working on a fee structure now !!:P:D

I am a prostitute. As always we are all things to all men.:P

As little as I can to be honest. I have a vast amount of time away from the "comdom in" ium now that I dont waste hours traveling. Its great. I think I have the balance just right.

I don't think so. I don't have the patience and prefer hands on!

You have been watching Coronation street havent you you little charmer !

Have you decided if you are going to take it up the botty from a bad breathed overweight bearded mysogynist with or without Lubrication, in your new glamourous work as an escort.

Thats the only work you could reasonably expect. Having Rita Littlewood and Audrey Roberts fighting over you in a corner shop will quite rightly remain in the realms of fantasy.

Bisexual men wanting to roger you while the wife pours cooling baby oil over his pumping pork like some ships engineer with an oil can on a big end will be about the best you could hope for.

Good luck with that ;)

Great advice...

Make sure that you own the entire site and the URLS and everything on it. Never have someone else run it for you or say they'll keep the thing safe and maintain it for you.

You can have someone create the site for you and set you up but make sure everything is passed over to your name. (Although web designers are a bit over priced and with a bit of elbow grease you could easily do anything they could of done with all the free tools about)

You might need to go on at any time to update the schedule, correct any mistakes, etc. etc. If your waiting for someone else to do it you could be waiting months.

And its not hard, if you can log on and post on this forum then you'll have no trouble....

A friend has used justhostme.co.uk and Im think of using them too.

Seemed very easy to setup and very shockingly good value for the cost. (Think the cheapest is 2.50 a month and the most expensive is 8.50!)

It depends on the type of site that is being built and hosted, factors like is it a bespoke site or one built on a template.

The other issue effecting the price charged is that everyone knows a "webdesigner" and lots of youngsters / teens can design better sites and do so for a hobby.

£250 is a fair price.

Yes, that does seem to be very true.

Question; suppose I go on Google and put in (bonkers example) +escort +Churwell. Isn't it the case that I am sure to see the exact same results as someone else, using different PC, in a different place, who puts the same search string in to Google?

My accountant (see earlier post) says he now finds his own site on page 4 of the Google results, but when I search using the same terms as he does, I don't find his site anywhere on Google (though he has started to show on Bing!) :rolleyes::confused::(

Firstly, your search request may have been handled by a different data centre using a different version of the search algorithm, or possibly the data held on the servers may be different. (IIRC, this is the explanation given by Google in the help section of their Webmaster Tools).

Alternatively, the search results are adaptive and learn from previous searches if you're logged into a Google account when searching. (You tell whether or not this is the case if your Google email address appears at the top right hand page of the Google search page.)

There could be other explanations of course, but I've definitely found the second to have a major impact on Google search results.
