Question by I: Is wordpress enough for creating a website for an online business?
If I wanted to create a website for an online business that sells items, would wordpress be sufficient? I have very basic knowledge or XHTML and CSS. Is that enough? Or should I pay a web designer to design a page for me? Or should I just make one using dreamweaver or something like that?
Also, if I wanted to have fourms and other features on my website, would wordpress be enough?
Answer by ben
Selling items online you will need more, there are a few options.
1. Easiest option is to use a template based shopping cart. This will one is easy to use, its set up thought paypal or you can use your merchant account if you have one to accept payments. its from http://www.BigDealDomains.com
The direct link is http://www.securepaynet.net/ecommerce/shopping-cart.aspx?ci=1807&prog_id=478576
2. You can also use a web designer but you will need an SSL (secure socket layer) to encrypt the page if you don’t use paypal. Www.BigDealDomains.com has an easy install for zen cart in there hosting accounts if you use a web designer.
I’ve done both and highly recommend the template based cart. Its alot cheaper, you have full control and www.BigDealDomains.com has 24/7 support so they can help you with the set up and any tech or design questions.

Question by Brett S: how does adsense and blogging work to make money?
how does adsense and blogging work to make money? is it just a way for other people to make money off your work and you just get a little out of it?
Answer by Auris
It works like this…….
The ad publishers pay Google for their ads to be placed all over the net & some will end up on your blog – those that are relevant to your blog’s content.
So, if your site visitors click on the adsense ads on your blog (its likely they will as the ads are related to the content of your blog which it is assumed they are interested in) you will earn a certain amount of adsense revenue.
This revenue is a portion of the amount the advertiser pays Google – Google takes their cut & the rest is yours – this could be a 50/50 split but nobody knows for sure.
Also the amount you earn for each click could vary between $ 0.01 and more than $ 10.00 (unlikely to be this high though although it can happen)

Question by mmc3: Is Bebo a good website for blogging purposes only?
I may get one but I would probably use it just for blogging. Is it good for this?
Answer by hmmmm,
No, Bebo is classified as a social networking site. Using it as a blog wouldn’t work for you as there are modules for comments, pictures, friends, applications etc. and you have a personalized profile with your own choice of layout and skin.
