3. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) – Google Ranking
How your website is found online is determined by many factors, some easily in your control and others a little harder depending on your market.
We will focus on the elements which are in your control, auditing how well your website’s content is structured along with how well your websites software presents your to the search engines indexing your website such as Google and Bing (Microsoft).
- Content Quality, is it relevant?
- Content Feed, are we telling Google to search our website?
- Site Structure and Meta Data – Technically speaking, is it easy for Google’s algorithm and ‘spiders’ to read your website
- Image Optimisation (file names, descriptions, image sizes and the like)
~3% of websites on the internet are compromised every year, 90% of the websites that were hacked in 2018 were WordPress websites, websites that were not maintained and the software was out of date.
There are some many scary factors around having a compromised website, not just it redirecting to a Russian SPAM factory. It can cost you alot, ignoring the down time and opportunity costs of having your primary marketing tool down.
But if you don’t know about it (and most don’t), hackers will learn your company from the inside out and take advantage of you, your clients and all stakeholders you engage with.
We will run our specialise software through your systems to audit your websites to check if there are any malicious applications. Then we will help identify weaknesses in the software you run which could be exploited by would be hackers.
5. Mobile and Tablet Responsiveness
50% of internet traffic on the internet is now mobile, and user behaviour is quickly changing. Websites built a couple of years ago are considered old and should be reviewed. Mobile usability is foremost in designing any website today.
You will find that over 65% of visitors to your website are using a mobile device. Sometimes users on mobile will revert to a laptop when they want to get a more indepth information. Making the first impressions even more important.
We will step through the user experience on mobile and the optimisation of how the website presents on smaller devices
6. Functionality, Control and Upgradeability
When websites are built as a cheap bundle by an agency or built by a tech savvy employee there is very little transparency as to who controls what. Knowledge and processes are rarely documented in this scenario so in the event that person leaves the business, all the know-how leaves with them.
We believe a website’s administration should be intuitive so that anyone can login and be able to update basic elements of their website.
We build in;
- Upgrade-ability and dependencies
- Ease of use
- Backups and recovery processes
- Documentation and Training
