We specialise in WordPress web design.
Good design is about much more than just outward appearances. (Although obviously looks are important too!)
Your website may look great, but looks can be deceptive.
The structure, coding & chassis behind your site is as important, if not more so than the graphics, text and content that makes it look good.
Google use algorithms to either include or omit websites from their all powerful index.
If your site fails to meet Google’s minimum requirement, you won’t even appear for basic searches for your URL, let alone your Brand name or Company name.
The chances of ranking for any high traffic keywords related to your products or services will be next to non-existent.
Google measures how fast your pages load, on PC’s and mobiles.
Because Google’s focus is on mobile devices, data heavy website, built with un-optimized images & code will fall at the first hurdle, disappearing into obscurity forever.
Additionally, Google assess each site for Mobile Compatibility.
Being mobile friendly means that your website automatically detects what sort of device your visitors are using & serves stripped down content for users on phones and tablets, while providing your full, “bells & whistles” version for PCs.
Mobile friendly design involves the use of a ‘hamburger’ dropdown menu, as well as content that doesn’t need to be zoomed to read.
Another mobile friendly requirement is that contextual links need to be well spaced.
Even on the smallest screen, (with the chubbiest fingers!) visitors need to be able to select on one link at a time with ease.
We focus our attention on designing & building WordPress sites that perform online.
Left to it’s own devices, WordPress can be a lumbering old hector, loading slowly, formatted to irritate Google and perform badly in SERPs.
There are however a whole load of structural tweaks, hacks and HTML coding amendments that we apply to the WordPress backend to streamline how the platform works in the real world.
Correctly applied, your WordPress website can have the performance of a Ferrari rather than a London Taxi & it will need that performance if you are going to compete for new business in search (Google) & attract new customers online.
One of the major advantages of using the WordPress platform is that it is infinitely customisable. We can add whatever functionality you need, so that your site can do all the heavy lifting for you, working effectively to enhance your business online.
Optimizing WordPress involves far more than just SEO. It is essential to address the many backend design issues that will work against you if you ignore them. (Many designers aren’t even aware that many of these issues exist, let alone know how to resolve them for you).
In standard form, WordPress won’t compress your images, or load quickly. Many WordPress themes won’t automatically render a Google friendly mobile version either!
WordPress by default tends to load far too much code in the header, which then needs to be downloaded before the rest of your page can be shown to your visitors.
This is a huge design problem if you don’t address it. But the good news is that it’s not a massive issue to defer the loading of unnecessary Java Scripts until the main content of your page has loaded.
The amount of DNS requests needed to download all of the content on your page, will determine the speed of your site.
The fewer individual server requests your website needs the better, so we combine and compress as much of your data as possible so that your site can load fast on any device, PC, Laptop, Tablet or Mobile, regardless of the download speed limitations they may have.
We address all of these issues, so your new WordPress site will be fast and search engine compatible straight out of the box.
Google are supporting AMP protocol, whereby your page content is stripped out (without converting to full mobile screen size format).
The result of AMP is a basic web page, with reduced functionality, but much faster load speed.
The first most important criteria is to make 100% certain that each and every website that we create is fit and health so it can perform online.
Many web designers are great at graphics, but fail to address all of the necessary behind the scenes requirements that will either make or break the success of your website design online.
We think differently.
As SEO experts, we understand what makes a website perform in search and even more importantly, what makes a visitor convert into a customer.
Joined up thinking makes websites work.
Google have announced that during 2017 they will prioritise their Mobile ranking algorithm ahead of their traditional PC based algorithm.
This means that it will be the mobile version of each website that gets assessed for its suitability to rank rather than it’s PC version.
The implications are huge.
If your site isn’t mobile friendly, you will struggle to rank for even your URL!!
This means that even people who know your business already will struggle to find you.
If they can’t find you, they will use a competitor instead.
That’s why this change in Google’s ranking process is going to affect so many businesses.
The choice that you make will have a huge effect on how your web design performs.
We specialise in producing fully functioning, mobile & search engine friendly WordPress web sites.
We use WordPress because it is hugely scaleable, with thousands or core layout templates and an infinite variety of functionality.
Your website design is the front facing part of your site. The visible part that people see.
In itself, it is the pattern on the plate, rather than the plate. It is the plate that does the heavy lifting, not the pattern!
Your design & graphics layout have several important functions however; to display your information clearly, quickly and to allow people to get where they want to go as easily as possible.
The key to success is to create a crisp, clean, easy to navigate design.
While incorporating some funky design flair, graphics and visuals to appeal to your visitors.
In many instances, less is more when it comes to web design.
