How Long Does it Take to Build a Website?

Website World provides you with all the tools you need to build your own website. However, if you already have a website, our paid migration service will move it to our platform. It can be faster to upload your product data via a CSV file, if you can get your product list into a tidy spreadsheet format.

 The time period from starting a free trial through to making a website live does varies depending on many different factors. While we can't specifically tell you exactly how many hours it will take to build your website, we can list the types of things you'll need to do before it can go live.

It does take time for a website to be found and indexed by search engines including Google and Bing. Your new website has been built upon a very SEO friendly platform and has specific areas where you can enter keywords, meta tags and file names. Through the regular addition of high quality content, your website is more likely to rank well in search results, therefore giving you more free organic traffic. You can also use other tools such as social media, bulk emails and paid advertising to direct people to your website too.

A realistic timeframe to have the basic skeleton of a website up and running is one day. Many of our customers will work on their website for short periods of time over a few weeks, adding content and perfecting their design before going live. However, a website can go live at anytime once there is at least one page ready for people to view.
