Design Agency Quality For Large & Small Business
Having a professional website developed is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity.
At Website Design Wolverhampton we understand how important your company website is, not just to you, but to your customers as well. So rather than just throwing together an existing template all of our websites are designed and built just for you. As part of the process we get to know you and your business, we need to understand what makes your business tick, what sets it apart from others and your online goals. Once we have full understanding then we start the process of design referred to above.
We brainstorm ideas with you and agree the overall look and feel of your new website. We work closely with you and your internal (and external) stakeholders about what it is that should ideally be featured on your website.
You will notice that modern websites present content in many different ways. There are now options to include image galleries, video presentations, social media links, databases, ecommerce functions, secure client areas, blogs and forums. In fact, if you have seen something on a website that you like, we can probably create it for you as well.
All Website Design Wolverhampton websites are responsive. This means that the website will display correctly on all types of screen sizes and devices. An ever increasing number of people use mobile phones for internet browsing thus making your website responsive is of paramount importance. We understand how an online presence is crucial to your organisation, whether commercial or non-profit.

Good websites are the result of top-end design on a stable platform. We choose content management systems that are safe, secure and stable.

These two open source platforms represent the vast majority of websites live on the Internet. Open source means you do not have to pay on going license fees and we are able to modify these software systems to give your website visitors a unique and engaging experience.
The process of website development (see the image) is a fairly complex one, but Website Design Wolverhampton ensure that you needn’t worry about the tech, just the message you want to convey – and we can even help you with that!

Search Engine Optimisation
When you need more traffic from Google - This is the service you need
If your website was on the front page of Google would your business benefit?
Clearly the answer is yes. But how do you do it? Search Engine Optimisation or SEO as the service is known is a long-established method for improving the “index ability” of your website. Index ability is what Google needs from your website.
There are numerous technical aspects of SEO which is why you need specialist technical assistance.
SEO has several phases and not one must be missed if your website is going to have a chance of being listed well.
Phase 1 –Benchmark your positions now.
We use various tools to check your current positions for the keywords and phrases you want to be found under. Only by knowing where you are now will improvements be visible.
Phase 2 – Check the build quality and structure of the website.
The main areas in the true “optimisation” phase are designed to ensure that the technical aspects of your website construction are completed correctly. We check many different elements of your existing website and rectify the problems (if any).
Phase 3 – Improve the contents of the website.
Google needs to read and store your website content. Google reads mainly the text so your message needs to be clear and concise. We will help you reword the contents with Google in mind.
Tip: “You need a well constructed website for Google to even notice you.”
Phase 4 –Encourage links to your website from others.
If you can get a high traffic website or an authoritative website to link to yours then this will help Google perceive your website is worth ranking well.
Phase 5 –Submit each and every optimised page to Googles’ index (and other search engines).
This is a manual task where we ask Google directly to list your website pages and then check they have done so.
We use various tools to check this work and provide reports to you on the progress.
(Repeat phase 3,4 and 5)
The key thing to remember is the comment in brackets above. This submission and ranking checks need to be done regularly.
How regularly depends on your target market, your competitors activities and your budget.
Website Design Wolverhampton is highly skilled is this activity and have been promoting websites into Google for over 17 years.
Please contact us so we can show you how succesful we are at this key activity that can seriously improve your company’s website performance.
Website Hosting – Ensuring Your Website Is Always There
We think it is very important to choose a hosting provider who ensures your website is available 24/7/365
Often overlooked, secure and fast hosting is an all important ingredient in ensuring a website is successful.
You might think that where you host your website isn’t important. But how would you feel if your website went down? Was hacked? Or you lose your email for several days? These are often the results you get when choosing “cheap” hosting.
We host most of our websites at our own dedicated servers at Rackspace in London. Rackspace has an incredible track record of support and skilled hosting provision. They’re not the cheapest, but you really do get what you pay for in website hosting. We also host in the “cloud” if the website needs the flexibility that cloud hosting offers.
Hosting isn’t just about your website being here when its searched for. The speed, resilience and support that is behind website hosting is of paramount importance.
Recently Google announced that it tests a websites speed. If your website is too slow, which can be affected by where you host your website, Google will penalise your website and you will appear lower in the search results – if you appear at all.
An effective website allows you to stand out from the competition & brings you closer to your clients – 24/7/365
Also it is important to remember that we live in a world where we expect websites and web applications to load very quickly. You now have only 4 seconds to get your message across to your website visitor before they consider going elsewhere. Where you host can have a dramatic effect on keeping your website visitors happy.
Dedicated Servers & Cloud Hosting
We offer both dedicated hosting and cloud solutions. We can help you decide what is best for your website. The main difference between the two options is scalability. The cloud offers the ability to increase the physical size, capacity and performance of your website where dedicated servers offer a more traditional interface for websites to rely upon. Website Design Birmingham can provide an expert view on this important area.
