What is included on your Website:
For a Four Page Website:
The most common uses are a home page, an information
page, resource page, contact information page /
Any amount of Text:
Other web designers only include a certain amount of
text per page in their packages. I allow any amount of
text, in fact the more the better for being indexed by
the search engines.
Any amount of Photos:
Some web designers charge extra for photographs, or
only include a certain number in their packages. I
allow any amount of photographs, provided by you,
which I will optimise and edit for use on your web
site. Quite a few of my sites are tourist related,
therefore the more photos the better, as photos of the
views and the surrounding area, are what usually sells
it to your visitors.
Enquiry Form & your
A contact form is a must. People generally don't like
typing, just ticking a box and clicking 'submit' makes
communication easier and therefore more likely they
will actually contact you. This would also have other
contact information; address, telephone number etc.
Don't forget mobile numbers, your hours of business,
out of hours contact info, if required.
I will make an enquiry form for your website, which
allows visitors to your site to contact you via email.
This form can have all sorts of questions for your
visitors to fill in. This would then come through to
you via email.
Your form can be made up with the following:
Text navigation- links to your other
The navigation system of links to your other pages, allow users
on your web site to find what they're looking for. Having a
text based navigation system is more beneficial than graphic
navigation as Search Engines cannot read text links that are
embedded in graphics - therefore this will make sure that the
Search Engines index all of your pages of your website. Also
text based navigation is often easier for your visitors to understand.
If I organise the domain name & hosting for your website
and you would like more detail than just how many people visit
your site, you can have website statistics for your site.
- How many people visit your website
- Who is visiting your site - via IP address & host
- Date & time of their visit
- What software they used to browse your site
- How visitors find your site eg: link from another site or
google etc. showing keywords used to find your site
- Size of browser and number of colours
- Keywords/phrases used to find your site
- Most popular search engines
Links to External Sites:
Quite often people are charged extra for adding external
links. I include these links, if you want them. My only stipulation
is that they are in keeping with your website's theme - eg:
if your site is for holiday accommodation in Oban, then all
external links would be to do with the area of Oban - things
to see & do etc. Or if your site is for artwork, then all
external sites would be to do with Art.
Nowadays the Search Engines do not like the use of reciprocal
linking - due to too many people exploiting this. However if
the links enhance your site in any way, be it more information
or alternative ideas on the same subject etc. then I think it
is a good thing.
The bottom line is making your site enjoyable and informative
for the people who visit your site.
I will add Meta Tags to all of your pages on your website.
META tags are special HTML tags that is in the coding of your
pages. Each page should have different Meta Tags, depending
on the content on each page. They tell the search engine's specialised
programs how to index your web page. They give specific information
to the search engine such as the title for the page, keywords
and phrases for the page, a description of the page and more.
Although good Title and Description META tags are essential to high rankings in search
engines, many search engines including Google do not use the keyword meta tags - they go
by the content on your pages only.
Website Optimisation & Search Engine
I make sure that you have good Keywords and Keyphrases to get
your site found by visitors. Each page should have different
keywords & phrases, depending on the content of each page.
I do not use an automatic service as they are frowned
upon by the search engines.
Website Maintenance & Site Management:
This is the key to a good web site and for search engine placement.
If your web site visitors find information that is clearly out
of date, they may leave your site. Search Engines will also
give your site more importance, when indexing, if it is seen to be
updated regularly. Sites that do not get updated will end up
being dropped by the search engines.
Keeping the information up to date is essential to your success
on the Web. Busybee Web Design provides this website maintenance
and site management service free for the first year.
Cross browser & platform testing:
Because of the wide range of operating systems, browsers and
screen resolutions, internet visitors don't always see web sites
the way they were intended to. At Busybee Webdesign I test each
page on a range of browsers and also on a MAC as well as the
Free consultation & support
Some design firms charge you by the hour for discussing your
options or per month for after sales support. Each site I design
requires a certain amount of discussion, be it over the phone
or via email. No two websites are ever the same! I never charge
extra for this - it is all part of the service.
I also offer support throughout the year at no extra charge.
