Web Design Services
Lori's Web Design has been in business since 2000 and focuses on small business or personal web pages. She specializes in Responsive Web Design for mobile devices. Lori has no employees so your website gets her personal attention.
Lori incorporates sound SEO practices as she works on all websites, such as using relevant titles, text and descriptions so they can be easily found by the search engines. This is not a separate service she provides, but SEO is at the back of her mind in everything she suggests for your website. She follows an in-depth website redesign planning guide and puts forth a special effort to see that your website has the ability to gain generic ranking in search engines without having to pay for Google ads.
Lori can also provide Manual SEO Audits of your website covering problems that can be affecting your page load speed, broken links and other factors that affect your keyword ranking in organic searches. She also looks for over-optimized keyword on your web pages to determine if you've been hit by Google's Panda Algorithm which looks for spammy content.
Detailed Competitor Analysis is also available (after a SEO Analysis has been performed) by checking what types of links your competitor has gathered (blog posts, guest article writing, or just good content on their website).
Analyzing links coming into your site can help determine if you have been hit by Google's Penguin Algorithm. It was designed drop the keyword ranking of websites if they used their main keywords too often in anchor text or have too many low quality backlinks from spammy websites.
Redesigning a website so it will display nicely in all desktop, tablet and mobile devices requires that some items move around on the page. Items that float to the left or right on desktop often need to be centered on a mobile device.
Researching Web Design Trends
Lori spends several hours every week researching current search engine trends from top SEO experts, such as Google Algorithm updates, and is constantly learning new techniques to promote better ranking in the major search engines.
All of the HTML code utilized by Lori's Web Design (LWD) is written by hand, thus eliminating costly web design software upgrades and keeping costs down. Hand written code also reduces massive code bloat often found on Wordpress sites and helps your website load faster. With Page Speed being a new Google ranking factor this is more important than ever.
Lori can advise you on the following:
- How to choose the best domain name
- Selecting the best hosting service
- Advising the design of your logo
- Designing the layout
- How to avoid Google penalties
- How to achieve the best keyword ranking
- Suggestions for responsive design
- Designing menu buttons and other graphics
- Setting up social networking
- The best links for your website
- The best way to be found in local search
- Avoiding email, hosting and other internet scams
I do not recommend setting up one-page websites because it doesn't cost very much to add more pages to a site once the layout is set up. Also one-page sites don't rank as well as those with several pages because every page that links back to the home page increases your keyword ranking.
