So why is speed so important when it comes to websites I hear you ask?
Did you know nearly half of all website users expect your website to load within 2-3 seconds or less, most viewers will leave a website if they are made to wait any longer. This means that if your website is not running at lightning speed you are going to lose views and new business.
If you are selling product on the web 79% of all shoppers who have problem with a slow website say they won’t return and about 44% will tell their friends if they have a poor experience on your website.
There are many reasons why your website might not be loading fast enough, it could be design, it could be age to mention a few, so it’s worth having a look to see how fast your website performs, you can try the FREE Google speed test here: developers.google.com/speed

It’s no longer as simple as just “mobile friendly” it’s more “how” mobile friendly is your company website?
Before we meet with a new client we always review their company website. One of the first things we look for is how mobile friendly it is. With more than 70% of web searches now done on a mobile platform it’s very important that your website displays correctly on all screens and (as we have found out) there seem to be a lot of variations on the word "correctly"
A few years ago the mobile issue was solved with two websites. One would be designed for the desktop and the other “sister website” was designed for mobile users.
This was all very well but the main issue here is that you are always running two websites so double the SEO and double the updates.
Other solutions appear to fit the website into the screen but it's very small making it unreadable to most. This forces the user to zoom in and scroll across so not very user friendly.
Other examples we see appear to be are half mobile ready, so the text is re-sized and fits the screen OK but images load incorrectly or don’t re-size making the website look unprofessional or unfinished.
If your goal it to encourage viewers to call you on the phone or fill in your form it’s really important that this is made as easy as possible so all forms should be finger friendly and phone numbers should become one touch buttons when on a small screen.
Your company website may have already been made mobile friendly but it’s worth having another look.

Google rocket fuel!
If like most clients I talk to, you want your website to travel up the Google highway to page one for your key search terms locally then you've gotta keep topping up the tank!
Just like a car needs fuel Google needs content and I don't mean copied content I mean good quality unique, relevant content that shows Google you are an active forward thinking company!
Two simple ways of doing this are to add a news page, make sure you add something relevant to your industry to show you are an expert in your field and put the date next to the update to show viewers you are on the ball!
The second is to add a testimonials page to your website and encourage clients to submit some feedback, this is easy because the content is written for you so it's just a case of checking and then adding the new testimonial.
From my experience Google visits itseeze websites every 24 hours so I would recommend adding an update once a week if possible and you should start to see some positive results. For more information on Search Engine Optimisation and website design services please contact us on 01206 512093
Google + an empty house party?
I sometimes use this analogy when talking to new and existing clients, if Facebook is a happening, hip house party full of cool people dancing the night away then Google + could be seen as the party where no one turned up!
So why bother with Google + I hear you ask? No one wants to be at that kind of party, all the cool funny people are somewhere else right??
The point we are missing here is that there is one VIP at this party that as a business we need to be engaging with and that's the very powerful Mr Google...
By having a presence on Google + and updating your business page regularly you are telling Google that your an active, progressive business. In our opinion this activity (as well as lots of other factors) will help you when your are trying to climb the Google listing and increase your company visibility on-line.
Just a couple of points, make sure your content is engaging and relevant to your business and services, make sure your content is unique (Google hates duplication) use images and video, and link back to your website when appropriate.
I hope this is useful, let us review you Google + and other social pages, (no obligation) just click here!
