Designing a Website
The website designs that I create are search engine friendly websites that are attractive, clear, efficient and quick to render on the internet. A professionally designed web site is easy to use and to navigate around. A visitor to your site should never get lost or confused. Templates never get used and I create graphics using photo and graphic applications that render quickly with browsers. There are applications which can make your website look flashy but parts of your site may not render at all. What good is a website if the buttons don’t appear or the text is missing. I try to steer away from those applications and concentrate on creating a good looking site that functions well.
Search Engine Optimisation is standard in all of my websites. Optimization of a website is the most important aspect of web page design in designing a website. Website optimization is necessary for your visitors to find your site using keywords in a Search Engine and not by having to type in your URL ( www.yoursitename.com.au) as potential customers will not know your URL. I consider Optimisation of your web pages to be the most important aspect of your website. SEO Explained

For my first ever web site I purchased web space from a web hosting business that charged me around $200 per year for 150 megabytes of space which was their smallest plan. The entire website was only 2 megabytes yet I had to purchase 150 megabytes. I recently purchased a large piece of web space and am reselling space to my web design customers only. I will allocate the right amount of space required for your websites saving you money. Info on web servers, web space and hosting
Your website will be uploaded to many of the more popular search engines. I will add your web site to free directories wherever possible, hence providing the all important links which google considers an important factor in ranking your site.
Follow on SEO
After your website has been indexed by the search engines (usually between two to twelve weeks) I run some tests on your sight and check up on your competition. I usually need to make some slight alterations to your site. These alterations are normally in the code only and you shouldn’t notice any difference to the appearance of your web pages. I will continue this SEO for the first 12 months.
