If someone had asked me what the most important website on the internet is, just a few months ago, I would probably have answered Google, or maybe a social media site. But, now, the answer is different.
And, of course, it all depends if I am answering the question from a personal perspective, or as part of my business. Today, it’s all about business.
I’m not going to keep writing, without telling you the answer. Let me just tell you why I believe it’s the most important website on the internet, and what it does, and then, we’ll discuss it.
The path to success
It’s a lot easier to be successful if we look at other businesses and people that are already successful. We should look at what they’ve done, and copy their path to success. It’s not as easy as it may sound, but it works.
Now, find a website from a successful business, and start to look at what they’ve done in the past, how they got started, and how they developed the site.
When we look at their humble beginning, it’s a lot easier to get started. Most businesses don’t start at the top, they start by going small steps, and they continue to develop. And, by looking at how they started, and doing “research” on their developments, it’s a lot easier to understand what we should copy, and what we should leave behind.
One of my favorite sites is Copyblogger. I have been reading their content for many years, and I have bought several of their services and products. I remember how the blog started, and I remember the progress, but not in detail.
This is how it looked in 2006.

This is how Copyblogger looks today.
The most important site on the Internet
I believe that Wayback Machine is the most important site on the Internet. They have an archive of all sites, and you can go back many years to see how successful sites have developed throughout the years, and this way you can understand what you need to do to become successful.
Do you agree with me?
