    For me it took a few weeks to finnish my site: Yourdirectory. But I guess that it's easier when you code it all in html.

    Looks good for starters. I'm noticing a few grammatical errors such as
    "Got to our directory list" instead of "Go to our directory list".

    I can put a basic site op in a few minutes, but it takes much longer to make a large site, and that is almost always my goal.

    First I would have to learn Finnish

    But after that setting up a site should take a couple of weeks - deciding on SEO themes for the site, sections, and individual pages - setting up good navigation, selecting a color scheme, and branding - then designing the site.

    Adding additional content, and making 'tweaks' are an ongoing process that should never be considered 'finnished'.

    :D

    Depends on what kind of site it is. It can be 10 seconds to months.

    Same thing. Back in 2003 I spent maybe a week working on Amazon sites, and BANG!!! Over the next six months they made around $13,000!! Then the competition came along! :(

    And now there's the sandbox! :(:(

    I put up an Australian site in one week or about 60 hours of effort. Finnish sites would take me a long time, since I'd have a steep learning curve with the language.

    Well, you can make a website in a few hours, using something like Yahoo sitebuilder. but how long does it take, to make a realy good website? to learn the art of making an amazing website, will take many months, especially if you include coding of any kind.

    I reccomend Dreamweaver (that's what I use + my programming knowledge) or I've seen a lot of people use MS Frontpage.

    Please be more specific in your question - how much time does it take you to do a site. It depends if it's a mini-site, 1 page sales-letter page, or a full-fledged site?

    There can be no one answer to this question.

    It depends on what type of site it is,where the content is coming from etc.

    I have a friend who has been working on his site for months now..he even quit his job for it..but hasnt finished it yet.

    I am working on a new site..its a simple html site - but still I may take a long time to complete it as I am writing everything by myself and am not able to write more than 5-7 pages in a day.
