  5. Location not desired: Location makes a difference. If one is located beyond the city limits it is difficult to rank big city brand names. In other words, one cannot expect big city searches. The limits of city can be searched on Google Maps. In case, one is doing business in a particular city, in other words, catering to that particular city market, then it is better to locate one’s business in that particular city.
  6. Not having policies: Another issue that requires to be taken care of, is not having proper policies. Proper documentation and customer service and content policies must be adhered to and must be clearly indicated. If one lacks a user generated type of content policy, then one may end up with spams or abusive content material.
  • Lack of demand: One must also see that there is a demand for your content and, naturally, one must do a market survey of the viewership and other business set-ups. In case Amazon already is there then another book.com would not be so profitable. Similar situation applies to other website business operations.
