Just few days ago, I post the example of using Blogger to create free restaurant website. Today, I add few more pages to the best pizza website to show restaurant photo gallery and restaurant reviews and restaurant direction. In the following example, I will show you how to create free restaurant website photo gallery, reviews and direction on blogger. You will also need Google PicasaWeb Albume account, Facebook Account and Google Map Business Listing Account.
To use the Photo gallery features, you simply create and upload your photos to your Picasa Web Album named "Photo Gallery". You then, create the slide show for the album and copy the embedded code to your page name Photo Gallery. The beauty is that Picasa Web Album is FREE services from Google. When you add more photos to the photo gallery, it will be automatically added to the slide show.
restaurant reviews page using Facebook's Comment Social Plugins.You simply specify the domain of your website. In the comment plugin setting form. Please note that you can't not use the default Blogger URL. You will need to purchase your own domain and use the custom domain for your blogger site.You can follow the instruction under your Blogger Setting -&amp;amp;amp;amp;gt; Publish Section.
Once you create the embedded code, you simply copy the Facebook comment plugin to your page. There is a more technical step involved, if you want to moderate your comments. You will need to add Facebook's open graph protocol on your blogger site. I will talk about that in the future. You can follow the instruction on Facebook Open Graph to enable your site for social search and comment moderation. The beauty of using Facebook Comment Box is the comment can be easily shared on the largest social network. It will in directly bring your organic and targeted traffic from social network.
restaurant direction page.
Google Map is a great Free tool for local business to reach out to potential local shoppers. Optimizing your Google Map is also important. If you have question about optimizing your Google Map listing to gain organic traffic and local search ranking, feel free to contact me.
As you can see, creating a free restaurant website is very easy. It only take you less then 2 days to put up a simple and robust restaurant website using blogger. Although, creating free restaurant website is easy, it is still not ideal way to gain organic search engine traffic. Blogger don't have good way to optimize your website using meta keyword and meta description for individual page. Using WordPress to create restaurant website is still the better way.
[Updated] The free pizza restaurant website now contains multiple pages, which show more content. Read how I did it at Free Restaurant Website with Gallery, Reviews and Direction. using Picasa web album, Facebook Comment Plugins and Google Map.As I discussed earlier, building a website can be very inexpensive. Although I prefer to use WordPress to build robust and content rich website, using Blogger to build one page website can be very easy, fast and almost free.
Blogger offer a great platform to build a website in matter of minutes, the only cost is the time spend on creating the one page site like the one you see on the left.
ChandlerGilbertPizza.com is the perfect example of using Blogger to build one page website with the sole purpose to give visitor a chance to check out the best pizza restaurant in Chandler and Gilbert.
With the flexibility of Blogger template and layout, creating a free restaurant website takes less than one hour. In this example, you can see the huge page title, a coupon, Facebook, Twitter link, QRCode, 1 restaurant photo and a Google map. That is all you need to create one page website for restaurant for FREE.
A local business owner only needs to pay for the cheap domain name and can easily add Facebook, Twitter and QRCode on the page to give visitors an extra opportunity to engage with the restaurant owner. The restaurant owner will also be able to use the printable restaurant coupon publishing tool to broadcast their coupons on the Internet.
Do you own a restaurant that has no website at all? Building one like this is just a snap! All you need is a domain name and a Google account!
This is the most inexpensive way to create a website in one day and start reaching out to your target customers in your location.
Well. Using Blogger is easy and free, but it lacks many nice features such as extended SEO capability, fully customized style and layout. In the WordPress Restaurant Website example, I use a very nice theme from StudioPress.
The theme allows me do lots thing without modify lots code. I highly recommend everyone who are looking for low cost solution to build their restaurant website and have better search engine ranking in very short time, download the WordPress Theme from StudioPress.
