Everything You Want.

For most projects I use the ubiquitous WordPress system with a styled theme, in line with your branding. This is tweaked to your satisfaction.

WordPress is portable, scalable, secure, future-proof, powerful, and you can add/edit your own content, if needed. Also with WordPress, ownership is yours, and the code or database can be migrated as you see fit. Unlike WIX or website builders, the code and database are not yours to take away.

Nothing You Don’t.

Unfortunately ANYONE can create a website these days. Even you! You can easily put some words and graphics together in Microsoft Word (or many other common programs) and save it as a webpage. Or, “web-designers” commonly use free ‘making’ website software…. and we all know you get what you pay for.

The problems with developing websites this way is people are not schooled in web standards and the code hopelessly fails when it comes to many aspects including mobile compatibility, optimized graphics, correct SEO, and the use of redundant or archaic code.

I recommend you use a designer that can at least write HTML without having to resort to a graphical ‘drag and drop’ editor. A simple thing like naming images without space in the filename can make or break your website. Many designers will use images with their original filenames (such as DSC0078.jpg) which search engines like Google don’t understand – little things like that are very important.

A simple test for your web-designer is to ask them a technical question. For example you could ask what a <label> element is used for. Or ask them if they use CSS media-queries and if so, for what screen sizes these media-queries cater for. If they answer you right away with confidence then you have a good designer. If not, run fast.

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)

Basically this means optimizing the code to make is sensible to search engines. I have all the skill to do this properly.

Search engines have little programs (robots) that surf the web 24/7. They look for good informative content and relative content. Lets say you have a wedding photography website – you want to be sure your pages are named correctly and make sense to search engines.

For example your gallery page should be named something like: “wedding-photography-gallery.html” – as that is way more sensible than being called “page3.html”. Search engines like Yahoo and Google will pick this up. Search engines will look at the file name, then they look at the page headings. If the keywords, or keyword-phrase (in this case the keyword-phrase “Wedding Photography Gallery”), is found in the page name as well as the main heading, once or twice in the content and photos then all the better.

There is normally one main heading and then there could be sub-headings and then sub-sub headings. Then come the paragraphs. Naturally, in our wedding website example, the gallery page main heading will be something like “Wedding Photography Gallery”. This will be big and bold as a heading should be. Then you might have an introductory paragraph and the you may have sub-headings like: Outdoor Wedding Photography, Indoor Wedding Photography, Beach Wedding Photography, Themed Wedding Photography, etc. These headings will all have paragraphs and photos in them. If the photos are names according to the content, ie: beach-wedding.jpg, bride-and-groom-in-chapel.jpg, then all the better as the search engines will see this and rank the page VERY relevant to Wedding Photography.

A lot more goes into SEO. A well written web page has something called META tags which are not seen by humans, but are there for the search engines. Two important ones are the “title” tag and then the “descriptions” tag that need to be utilized.

Also the overuse of keywords, keyword phrases and trying to trick Google into ranking ones page better is no good. Search Engine Robots are very clever and know when they are being tricked. As long as the writing is natural and not stuffed with keywords/key-phrases then you are good to go.

WordPress Websites

WordPress is for websites like Google is for search. Over 20% of the worlds TOP 10 million websites use WordPress. And in total about 60 million websites use WordPress. The reasons are as follows: Once setup, the owner can update their own website easily. The system is very easy to use even if you are not ‘tech-savvy’. It is suitable for almost any type of website, from e-commerce stores to school and university websites. Some of the worlds top websites that use wordpress are: People Magazine, Sony, Wall Street Journal, Samsung, Playstation, CNN, Ford, Ebay and many more.

Plugin System

WordPress is extensible with millions of plugins to suit any need. From calender or newletter plugins, to gallery, sound and video plugins, to geo mapping sytems or hotel booking systems.

Standards Compliant

It also conforms and adheres to web standards using HTML5 and CSS3 recommended code plus a nice fall-back for older browsers. It is very secure and even updates itself so there is no need to download and update the core software.

SEO Freindly

Out the box, WordPress is search engine friendly. I use additional plugins and expertise to enhance this.

WordPress Themes

There are a gazzillion themes available for WordPress. Many are free and others are premium and command a small fee. I have a repository of premium paid themes which I offer for free when you have a website done with us. This gives you good choice. Additionaly, if required, I can design a WordPress theme from scratch if needed.

Banner adverts are usually done using GIF animation with Adobe Photoshop. Whatever your companies needs are, I will deliver a nice design and animation in any dimensions you want.

I add Google Analytics to your site and monitor your site and if needed, will suggest improvements using this invaluable tool.

jQuery FX

Whenever you see advanced special effects on websites, then it will probably be done with jQuery. From animations with every transition effect you can dream of to updating content on the fly with Ajax, jQuery is fast, cross-platform and works on all smart phones too!

Scripting & Programming.

Using either PHP, Java or jQuery, writing some code to perform a function is something I find rather exciting. As an example, with just 3 lines of code one can read and display all images on a server, then I can write code to manipulate those images how ever you want. I can make them black and white, flip them, resize them or anything you can imagine – all with code. I am always up for a challenge.
