What is the Website Design and Development Process?
What is Website Hosting?
Without website hosting, your website can’t be seen or found. To get your website online, we need to join your website hosting with a domain name and then we publish your website files on the Internet for everyone to enjoy!
Who do I do if something goes wrong with the website or I can’t figure something out?
We’re here for you! If you’ve subscribe to one of our ongoing website care plans, we will be your first point of contact should something go wrong with your website. We will determine whether it is something the hosting company needs to fix or something that is covered by your website care plan. We will provide documentation and video tutorials to assist you in using your website once it is launched. No matter what, we’re always here for you!
How long will it take to appear at the top of Google?
The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases. Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however there are a number of factors that can improve your chances. Building your website on WordPress is a good start as WordPress has some great Search Engine Optimization fundamentals built-in. Creating unique and interesting content on a regular basis for your website is also critical to increase your visibility among search engines. Following the Search Engine Optimization steps we provide during training is also an important part of increasing visibility. Launching your website and then forgetting about it is a surefire way to get lost among the noise.
We are happy to talk to more about your search engine strategy if we haven’t already.
How will I know if anyone is visiting my website?
We will install Google Analytics software on your new website and show you how to log into your Google analytics account where you can see a wide range of statistics about your website including number of visits, page views than the amount of time people are spending on your website.
What happens if I want to add some features to the website while you’re building it?
We do like to be flexible and responsive to your needs, we also like to deliver what we promise within the time frames and budgets we have allowed. If you ask us to add new features to your website while we are building it, we will most likely ask why? If we all agree that your new request will help us achieve our objectives then we will be more than happy to oblige. If your new feature is something you would like to add to your website but is not directly tied to your original objectives then we may suggest to schedule it for a second iteration of the website once it has been launched. This may require a new proposal.
