Web Design Faqs
How Much Will a website cost?
It depends on a lot of factors, as it really depends on what your business needs and how your website can be crafted to help you meet your objectives. My websites start from £4,000 for a basic site, and then upwards depending on your requirements.
Remember you are aiming to get a return on your investment, so your website will soon pay for itself through the increased leads and sales it generates.
Will my website works on mobile devices?
Yes it will. Google now prefers mobile friendly websites and it shows this by ranking them higher. It makes no sense to deliver a site for you that will not rank well in search results.
Will I be able to update my website?
Yes you will. You can be given access to update either some or all of the pages on your website. You will be able to update your pages anytime, and anywhere you have internet access and a web browser.
Will you show me how to makes updates?
Yes I will. Once the site has been launched I will show you how to get started. Video training tutorials are also provided in my managed care plans. I will also provide you with some handy resources on how to maximise your time on your new website.
How long will it takes to build my website?
The time frame depends on the complexity of the website. A typical website can be completed in 4-5 weeks if all of the site content (your text and photos) has been supplied on time.
Will long will it take for my website appear at the top of Google?
The question doesn’t quite hit the mark because Google doesn’t really rank site’s because they exist. It ranks pages on your site that match the search criteria of people who are using particular keywords or phrases. And, so some of your site pages will appear at the top of a Google results page, for particular searches, and some will not.
No-one can really tell you how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages, but Search Engine Optimisation will reduce the time and improve your chances.
What is Search Engine Optimisation?
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a collection of strategies used to increase the number of visitors to your website. The techniques used have the sole aim of improving ranking so as to increase the visibility of your website on search results pages.
Will my website be Search Engine Friendly?
Yes, you can opt to have On-Page SEO integrated into your website to influence search engine visibility.
Will I have access to statistcs to see how my site is performing?
Google Analytics will be installed on your website, so that when you log into your admin area you’ll be able to see a basic view your site statistics. You will also be able to access Google Analytics via your Google account for a more in depth view of those statistics.
Will my WordPress website need any maintenance?
Yes it will, WordPress requires ongoing maintenance to optimise performance and to keep it secure from hackers and malware. Please view details of my managed care plans.
Hosting and Domain Faqs
Do I need my own domain name?
Yes definitely. A domain name and website hosting are required to build and run a website. Good Web Solutions can help you register your domain name, and either work with your existing hosting provider or set you up with my recommended hosting provider.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is the address of your website on the internet and will look something like www.yourbusiness.com.au
Australian Domain names are registered for at least 2 years at a time.
What is web hosting?
Websites are uploaded and stored on remote servers in order to be accessible by the internet. The Web Hosting service will typically store and run both your website and email.
Good Web Solutions does not provide web hosting, but will be glad to help you find a reliable web host to meet your requirements.
