How to Build a Bear Website

By Giselle Diamond

  • Overview

    Building a site about bears is just as easy as building a site about any other topic. It is important to have a clear and concise layout and a lot of good information about bears that most people do not know. With the right information and a website-building program, it is possible to create a site about bears within 1 or 2 days.
    • Step 1

      Purchase a website to use for your bear site. If you are serious about the topic, purchase a domain name and website to eliminate ads and clutter. Purchasing a domain name also means that you can choose a web address for your site that reflects its bear-related content.
    • Step 2

      Choose the design software you want to use to quickly and easily build your bear site's content. Many programs will convert the information you enter into HTML or other popular scripts like Java or XTML. Many programs come with templates to use, or you can design the site from scratch. There are many tutorials that help with web design. Some even give you the option of choosing a theme--in your case, bears.

    • Step 3

      Choose the content for your bear site. You can post facts about a certain kind of bear, or information about the lives and lifestyles of bears, or even information about teddy bears or other kinds of toy bears. Add graphics of bears or give your site a forest-like appearance.
    • Step 4

      Keep your site fresh and interesting by adding new information every so often. You can add different bear-themed activities, such as coloring pages, quizzes, and "bear treat" recipes. You can also post a "bear fact of the day." If you add contests to the site, you can offer toy bears to the winner. Adding a blog to a site is a great way to keep people coming back regularly. Add a place where visitors can comment on your information.
    • Step 5

      Place all of the information onto the site. Add some of the most interesting information about bears that you have collected. Graphics and videos of cute bears and their antics will make your site more popular. Make sure to save all of your hard work.
    • Step 6

      Collect information about bears and different bear activities throughout the life of your site. Keep an eye out for news relating to bears, viral videos that feature bears, and products and studies concerning bears. This kind of detailed information will keep visitors coming back to your site. Consider advertising your site as well.
