Our Approach to Web Design

Ensuring your website is viewable on tablets and smart-phones Responsive Web Design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience; easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices including laptops, desktops, tablets and smart-phones.

It is also possible to make your site look completely different so that when viewed on a smaller screen it is easier to use and navigate. There is nothing worse than having links that are too small for your fingers! So in place of the normal links you can have larger buttons and the pages can be simplified to make the viewing experience that much more pleasurable.

For an extra cost we can re-design your site to be a simpler version when viewed on a Smart-phone or on a Tablet in portrait mode. The new design will be undertaken after full consultation with our client.

RWD is standard on all websites I build.

Content Management Systems (CMS) give you, the website owner, the opportunity to edit the text and some of the images of the site so you can keep the information fresh and up to date.. This is a simple process where you log in to the administration 'back end' of the website and edit the information within your web browser.

This is not supplied as standard but can be instigated at a small extra cost when ordering your website

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of effecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's "natural" or unpaid ("organic") search results. In general, the higher ranked and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users.

As an Internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engines work, what people search for, the actual search terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search engines are preferred by their targeted audience. Optimizing a website may involve editing its content, HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to increase the number of back-links, or inbound links, is another SEO tactic. (Description from Wikipedia)

It is important that you understand that we are not a Web Site Marketing Company (as this is a specialist and costly exercise), however we do make sure your Web Site is as Search Engine friendly as possible but it is impossible to guarantee that your site will appear in the first page even if you employ the services of a specialist website marketing company.

SEO Optimisation All our websites regardless of the size are built with Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in mind and as the site is built so careful thought is given to ensure all images and text could be seen by the leading search engines. The sites are also submitted to all leading Search Engines.

If high search engine ranking is important we can arrange for specialist SEO consultants to undertake the marketing of the site. If this is required then you should be aware that this is a continuing process with the site managed on a monthly basis.

But while we are building your new site it would be of great help if you started to think and list quality key words and page titles so that we can give your site the best possible chance of being found.

At Ayton West Studio I want to make your experience of getting online as seamless as possible. With this in mind I encourage all potential clients to get in touch so that we can discuss the best route to your online experience.

All prices quoted are based on the client supplying images logos and copy. Should you wish us to arrange this we can do so with our Photographic and Graphic Design services.
