Everyday, hundreds of websites go onboard that touch different topics and genres. While some are plainly informational, there are also those that are interactive which can be more engaging than the rest.
If you have made your own website, or are in the process of making it, then you need to assess if it can survive the competition.
You need to answer the following questions:
- What makes it unique from the rest of the websites in your chosen field?
- How well will it rank in search engines? Will it be at the first page of search engine results pages (SERPs)?
- What is the chance that it will be clicked on by users and viewers when it is suggested by the search engines?
If you are not sure of the answers to these questions, then your website is still in danger of not surviving the competition.
