a Mobile First Design
Every website should function and load just as well and as quickly (if not better) on a mobile device as it does on a traditional desktop computer.
Over 50% of website traffic now comes from mobile devices and that trend will only continue to grow until the point where the difference between a mobile device and a desktop became lost or minimal.
Think for a second what YOU do when you visit a website that does not load quickly. You leave.
That is why you need to have mobile web design as your priority when it comes to actually planning and designing your next website.
SEO For Your Website
From the beginning design and planning process for your web design we put SEO (Search Engine Optimization) at the top of the list. This includes the mobile first design process.
Websites that are mobile friendly are by nature more SEO friendly. In addition to the mobile first design we also ensure that your web design includes the proper tags and codes to help rank your website from the start.
There are many other factors that go into SEO, but you need to have a website that is built to work well in an ever increasingly competitive SEO world. Everyone wants to rank on the first page of Google and Bing, but only a select few are designed to do so.
The images and videos included on your website are also prepared for SEO and in particular Local SEO thanks to geographic data that is inserted by our team. This allows search engines to know what exact city or town you are trying to target your content for.
An example below shows how we apply the Longitude and Latitude coordinates to any image file to accomplish this.
