Website Theme Design Stage
The overall look and feel of websites are controlled by the Theme. Colors, fonts, menu and navigation are functions that are controlled by the Theme. Although a majority of theme design work is done locally on our testing servers, you will have the ability to see the work online as each stage is completed. There are some questions that will need to be answered before starting the Theme design process. If you want, you can answer them online by clicking here or via email.
Basic Theme Elements:
- Page background
- Primary colors
- Fonts; Headings and Paragraph
- 3rd party application and plugin integration placement
- Main Navigation (menu) style and placement
- Modern or traditional style layout
- Mobile Responsive design
- Blog styling
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Content Creation
For any website to be successful, it must be found. For example, if you’re in the business of selling, “Red Shoes” then it’s important for your website to be found when people are searching for a place to buy “Red Shoes.” Google or Bing are search engines that will most likely be the first place people will start their search.
Search engines have guidelines in place that help them decide which website is the best website they will send people to; in this case for, “Red Shoes.” A major part of the process search engines use in determining a good website is how it’s designed and how well the content is placed within each web page.
It is extremely important to learn these guidelines and to keep up with them because they are always changing for the better of the web.
Optimized Website Content
If you don’t have content for your website, we will create it for you. You can find more information about our Content Creation Service here.
If you already have content that will be used for the new site, we’ll optimize it for you.
There are two components to Search Engine Optimization: On-Page-SEO, and Off-Page-SEO. We provide both. To properly design a website, On-Page-SEO must be done for each page of your website to help search engines properly Index the page.
The Main of On-Page-SEO:
- Domain name analysis
- Keyword Research
- On-Page content structure
- Image and Meta Tag creation and verification
- Social Media elements
- Website HTML to text ratio
- Website performance
- Analytic software integration
