A good tip in a odd place

In order to improve your websites SEO it is a good practice for each page to have a good quantity of 'real' text. When google see's (crawls) your webpage it see's all the code and all the content, if there is much more code than content it will appear like that page is not very informative for users.

It is recommended to have over 200 meaningful words per page, to help give it some weight and value to users.

Of coarse, this is not always the case, depending upon the purpose of the website and the specific purpose of that particular webpage, it could be a showcase where visual design is at the forefront and a wall of text is the lowest priority when your trying to look good (think like an art gallery here, a large picture and a small placard).

I hope this gives you an insight and provides value to take away and integrate on your own website, you've probably heard it before but in certain aspects of design, content is key.

Frequently Asked Questions

What information do I need for my website?

You can use your website as a powerful tool for marketing your business or organisation. Whether your site is a simple blog or a full-fledged e-commerce site, it's essential to make sure you collect all the right information before you put it online. What would you like your visitors to know about you, your products, and your services? Before designing, you'll need to have at least some of these pieces of information:

Your Website Copy
This is all of the text that is displayed on your website. It's vital to get it right because it can help with the ranking of your website. It should also read well and provide value to the reader.

Your Logo and Brand Guidelines
I'll take your company's logo and brand into consideration when designing your website so that it can be closely matched to your brand. Alongside that, I employ colour psychology to represent your company.

Your Images
Images of your business, your vehicles, you and your staff, any products you may sell, any work you have done, before and after shots. The specific requirements vary depending on the business because some may not be appropriate to your situation.

Your Social Proof
Do you have some good online reviews on Google, Facebook or elsewhere? We can use them to demonstrate how fantastic you are and convince potential clients you're the best!  

A Domain Name
Think like www.mybusinessname.com or www.mybiz.com. It's best to keep it simple, easy to remember, and easy to communicate. Avoid unnecessary characters, and keep it short! Also, you can choose from hundreds of different domain extensions, for example, .com, .co.uk, .red,. me, using them can help you find a shorter and more meaningful domain!

A Call To Action
What do you want visitors to do when they visit your website? We use the call to action to direct them towards the intended action, that is often a contact form, a direct button to call you, or a simple email collection field.

How does your web design process work?

A Quick Chat
First, we have a chat! We talk about what you'd like the website to do and what you need me to do, such as create content for the website. Once finalised I'll document this in an email and share the discussed scope we've agreed upon.

Discovery
Now we are exploring what you envision for your new website. We will examine websites that inspire you, learn how we can improve on these, and plan to integrate parts of these into your design.

Copy Sign Off & Mock-Ups
If I'm creating website copy I will email the plain text across to you for review, all my copy is written with SEO in mind which will help your website rank better on search engines. Once the copy has been approved, and any content sent I'll create a mock-up of your website, depending upon the size of the project the media of this mock-up can vary.  

A Quick Chat & Revisions
We'll talk over the phone to make sure everything is okay and make any necessary adjustments.

Sign Off
We'll reconvene one last time and then it will be time for us to go live and make any final tweaks, exciting times!  Please note that on larger projects, these aspects are covered in greater detail.

What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of optimising your website and your online presence to increase your website’s ranking on search engines. There are many ways to improve your website, and it takes a lot of devoted effort, dedication, and time to achieve higher rankings for different keywords.

What's a freelance web designer?

Many web design agencies promise you the world but deliver something that doesn’t quite meet your needs. You will find it hard to get in touch with an agency designer, your questions will be answered with stock answers, and it will take you too long to get what you paid for.

As a freelance web designer, I am here to help you every step of the way. I will listen to your needs and desires and work with you until you are satisfied with your new site. I am here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Freelance web designers work for themselves; we have complete control over our design practices, no amateurs are lurking on your site producing amateur designs for premium prices.
