Website Issues and Problems

Top Website Issues and Problems

The unattractive website..plenty around on the internet, is this YOUR website..?

Really, try it yourself and risk a massive loss, this falls down to the fact that Web-design is a highly artistic method, and if your not artistic then the changes are you will struggle, and you only have to look around top see what we mean on line..

The w3c will offer a validation service that allows website owners to check if their website is compliant with very high standards , its extremely difficult and most websites are in line with w3c.

Broken Links on your Website>?

A few issues come to light if you have broken links.. firstly Google again, they will defiantly penalise you for not keeping your site in line with correct linked current content.. also secondly users will get quickly deflated if they come across broken links that go no where..

Slow loading Speed

You will defiantly loose visitors if you don’t have a fast loading website, this will come down to many things from poor images, to much java script running around.. and more.. Try going to GTmetrix to test your websites speed..TLC Web Design Portfolio

Website loading Speed | in Cornwall

How fast is your website?

Is your Website loading too slowly? are potential customers leaving your company website because frustrations are setting in?

…its a well know fact that the average on line shopper for example is very impatient , they certainly don’t like a website taking ages to load, this is a major consideration if you have a service to promote in Cornwall, and with so many services on offer from car mechanics , surf schools, shops, dog walkers, tea rooms, food outlets, summer trade businesses , and many other Cornish Companies selling a multitude of products and services a FAST loading and responsive website the key to an interested first time visit to your website:

What can i do to improve my Website Speed!?

Up-to 90% of websites { webpage } loading time very often is certainly spent with downloading, this is broken down into pieces and sections , pictures and images certainly take time to load, scripts, and text content script takes time, and FLASH players are defiantly naughty , with a general HTTP request being made on these elements, so its no surprise that the more sections and elements like these the longer it will take! So with this info to hand the certain way to improve SPEED is to simply your designs, and having a dozen sliding images on a slider or a fancy face book feed won’t help the situation..Start by using CSS instead of images, cut down the amount of elements on your pages, really try to reduce the script s on your page, and pop them away in the same area..

Think on this website owners, believe it or not a simple one second delay in loading speed can mean: A 17% decrease in a customer satisfaction, 11% less page views , a a whopping 7% loss in conversions, with the info coming from the Aberdeen Group Company. For info on your loading speed go to  pingdom.com 

If your looking for extra help from the master, GOOGLE , they recommend using an AP monitoring system, this will allow you to check weekly. There are other resources to consider for your website, like going to Yslow, here you can evaluate your sites speed, and great tips to improve performance! OR we can help, please contact TLC for FREE advice on website issues like loading speed.

Working hard weekly on your SEO, { search engine optimisation } will get better over time, constant up dates , and attention to detail is best for your websites ranking, its well know that link building is one of the very best ways to improve your websites rank, however its an important skill to adopt, even 30 mins of link building a week can be really helpful to website rank, hyper link, back link, internal links, internal mapping,good linking is key for your Cornish Website Development..

Link Building | Your Cornish Company Friends

Asking your business partners , and local friends in Cornwall can be tricky, sending an email to ask kindly for a link exchange is often hard, it may be that for what ever reason that website or that Cornish Company may not need to do any link building..

Try Black HAT SEO | Cornish Companies

Black Hat,? Whats black hat SEO? is it part of a magic show!? well, no, its a term used in the online world to trick  Googles tricky algorithms , to create higher rankings for certain search phrases.. Black Hat SEO goes up against the Goggle rules.. IF Goggle finds your operating like this your site very often gets into trouble and ticked off, or penalised , de ranked lower down the pages, here below are a few no no no Black Hat SEO site de rankers!

1 Adding mass comments about certain product, services , or anything you are trying to promo..

2 Try not to use wiki links, a trend to re use content on here can , and most likely gets picked up by goggle..

3 Take care not to book mark in the same location, such as read it .. or Stumbleapon.. nothing to bad with this, by don’t speed your URLs around to close together ..

4 Buy a link set up, or purchased links had be popular, but now goggle sniffs this practice out, if you do this aim for slipping in a No follow tag, just so google sees your not trying to increase your rank..

5 Creating a fake forum account, again spreading your love to close together , if done way to quickly or closely it can mean a de rank, and turn out to be fruitless..

6.Profile linking, again a black hat procedure , but can cause problems, basically the same attic as multiples of profile link creation, and again spreading the love to close together.. defiantly one to avoid.

After our free sit down consultation with you the customer, we then go away to build you a New Website, ready to show off to the Cornish and UK world, or possibly even the world global internet..

 Step 1                                                                                                          

Which Platform?

The first step for us is to find the best foundation or platform as its widely know, this is the back end of your new website, the insides of the website, the bits you don’t see if your online browsing, each platform is different, some with more functions and capabilities than others., these are also known as CMS { content management systems } what your saying , selling or doing, all about you or your company, its a top priority from the start!

Some content management systems are more advanced than others, and a good knowledge of HTML { website language system } other wise know as coding languages , so we really do need the best platform for the website build, and as many of our customers then wish to go on and manage the website themselves with a little in house training from one of our team we often use Word Press, highly functional and relatively easy to manage, if not word press  then some times Joomla or Drupal, but no need to fear, we choose for you!

 

 

A Friendly Word Press Platform

Its widely recognised a friendly platform. and easy it to use and manage, if your ok with the standard basic Microsoft programs such as Excel and Word Docs then a very high chance you are already set and capable to publish your own content, in format content, info, and blow/news content. And in addition to this the good thing with WordPress is its easily customised with a great range of plugins, a plugin a snippet of software that can assist with the running management of your website, some are quite possibly amazing, they really can make your site stand out on – line, if you need a simple one page website or a major e-commerce site then Word Press can handle it all!

 

A Powerful Word Press Website

The power behind WordPress is vast, and as said before can run almost any site, but its also a very trusted platform, and often the CMS for many of the top best well know website across the world, its constantly changing and evolving with many upgrades taking place to stay ahead of the game. Also WordPress Platforms are free, so we save you money from the word go..the 1st cost out lay is your domain named hosting.

A responsive and mobile friendly website

The true fact is that more and more people across the world are looking on the internet using mobile devices, its highly important that your new website is responsive and can be used on almost any device, don’t worry we will have everything in hand and most almost every lay out theme will come super mobile friendly as standard!

Wow great !however the hosting attached to it isn’t great, and mostly really slow…which isn’t good..

 

TSOhost_LogoWe advise your own domain name, better all round.. the hosting and domain name will cost a little but then you really will have your own website, that you own.. And really if you have domain name your good to go..
