I am Martin Waring. I am a Freelance Web Designer based in York, UK and wherever you live I am committed to offering affordable website design and optimisation, making your new website design both interesting for your customers to read and easier for them to find in Google searches!
Most businesses today need a website to stay competitive, to find customers and for their customers to find them. Most new customers will find your website through an online search and foremost amongst the searches used today is Google so your website needs to be designed from the start, not just to appeal to your customers but also to be Google friendly.
Many small businesses invest a lot of time and energy in their website design but then find that the website disappears without trace in a Google search. Webdesign takes planning and a good awareness of what keyword searches your customers might use to find you. A website also needs nurturing. You don't just get to the top of Google in a few days, and then stay there.
When you do a Google search yourself, think about where you click first. Research shows that 70% of people ignore the paid adverts at the top and right of a Google search page and look to the first ordinary website listed and the next 2 or 3 listings. This is the sweet spot that I aim for in my website development and search engine optimisation process.
