Will my website be found by Google? (About Search Engine Optimisation)

With so many people now searching for services online, it is important that your online presence is professional and stands up against the competition. However, just because you have a website does not guarantee that people are going to find it. There are many factors that can affect your Search Engine Results Page (SERP) Rank, and it can take time for your website to ‘climb up the ladder’.

What is my SERP Rank?

Whenever someone conducts a Google (or any other search engine) search, the result page will show a list of links to web pages that relate to the words that were entered in the search. These links are displayed in order of relevance based on a series of factors such as your website content, page description, number of pages in your site and incoming links. The higher up the list a website is displayed, the higher the SERP Rank.

How much does a website cost?

There are many solutions available today for getting a website for your business or organisation. These can range from free sites that you create yourself, to complicated multi-page database powered sites that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to get up & running. Unfortunately there is no 'standard' across the web development industry that dictates how much a website should cost, or what you will receive for your money.

Avoid the cheap & nasty

With so many free options out there, you may ask 'what's the point of using a professional?' Ultimately, if you want a quality website that looks great, is original, consistent with your organisation's branding, AND works well, then you will have to pay for it. There are so many factors that work together to make a website successful - some of which you may not even be aware of, or more importantly, have control over if you use a free website tool. You will save yourself time, money and stress in the long run if you leave the details up to a reputable company such as Design Sense Graphics & Web.

Design Sense in the Business Community

September was a busy month for us, as we co-hosted the Business After Hours and Women in Business events.

The KBCCI's Business After Hours was co-hosted with Goldfields Baptist College. The event was a great success with approximately 60 from the business community attending. It was a great opportunity to talk about what we do, and network with clients and colleagues. The college was a fantastic venue, and we were treated to an excerpt from GBC's upcoming musical, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by the students. BAH events are held monthly. See http://kalgoorliecci.asn.au/events/register/ for information on upcoming events.

Later that week, the Women in Business' Boulder street walk began at Design Sense. We met with over 15 other businesswomen to connect and share ideas and support. We then walked down Burt street, stopping at Industrial Lane and Just Add People Short stay apartments, finishing up just a few blocks away for canapes and drinks. See https://www.facebook.com/GoldWIB/ for more information about the Goldfields Women in Business.

What features should my website include?

Aside from your main content, there are so many features available for websites that it's hard to know where to start. Consider who your target audience is, and what information you would like to convey through your website. How will you draw in new visitors, and how will you get people to come back again?

Here is a list of some ideas for website features that Design Sense Graphics & Web offers. Make sure you choose tools that are useful and relevant to your business, and that will enhance your primary message rather than distracting from it. Note that this list is by no means comprehensive. If there's something not on this list that you'd like included in your site, just ask!
