10 things you didn't know about the Internet.
- Only 17.71 websites last more than the first two years.
- Websites are usually set up because they seem like a good idea at the time, but then fade away through lack of updates.
- There are very few occasions where, after a prolonged period during which a website hasn't been updated, it is re-launched successfully.
- Generally a relaunch only consists of a rehash of old material rather than any genuinely new content.
- Websites never make a profit without many years of losses (however if you would like to change this, email to learn how you can help!)
- It is an unwritten rule that the length of time taken for a web page to load should be inversely proportional to the worth of the content.
- Printed materials tend to be given far more credibility than they actually warrant. Similarly, websites are credited with a great deal of erroneous authority purely from their existence, despite containing a load of rubbish purporting to be fact.
- Any problems you have viewing a website are all your fault
- The accompanying fanfare and promotion surrounding a website (re-)launch is usually inversely proportional to the worth of the site.
- Meaningless padding is frequently used to make up for lack of worthwhile content.
