Is it time to update your website?

Posted on November 30, 2015 at 12:11 am

If your website was designed a number of years ago then it may well be time for an update. You will need to consider advances in your industry and compare your competitor’s websites to see what they are offering. It may be that you need to add downloadable forms, online calculators or simply images of your new products / services.

When updating a website, sometimes it is cheaper and quicker to start a new website rather than trying to amend an existing one. Speak to your current web design agency to find out which is the best option for you. If you do not have a mobile version of your website, then now is definitely the time to do it as Google is favouring sites that are mobile friendly.

Costs vary for updating a website, if you are only adding in a few additions you may be charged per hour for the work. If it is a larger project you may be quoted a lump sum for all the work in terms of design and programming.

Building sub domain websites

Posted on November 1, 2015 at 12:16 am

A sub domain site is a website that is created on as part of the same domain name as a current site. In the eyes of the search engines, a sub domain website is a totally standalone site. A normal domain would be example.co.uk where as a sub domain would be xxx.example.co.uk with the xxx’s being replaced with the name of the site.

So when would you need a subdomain? If you have a large amount of content on your main website that is cluttering it up you may want to move it to a sub domain and create a mini website. This site will need to be SEO’ed as with the main site but once live and indexed you can actually gain better results by having a site that is completely tailored to a specific subject. You can also link this site to your main site in order to create a backlink.
