What can you expect from your Surefire Creative website?
Surefire Creative design good-looking websites at very competitive prices. We give general advice on content & work with you to create a positive representation of you, your business and your services. In addition, Surefire apply basic 'tricks' during the design stages to help with Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Surefire Creative also recommend clients devote a little time post-launch to their website for adding regular news & testimonials as well as securing referral links from external sites to further boost their search result rankings.
So what SEO works do Surefire implement as standard?
Surefire Creative apply basic Search Engine Optimization best practices to all our clients websites. These include the following:
Step 1 – Once your site design is completed and you’re happy with the look and content, we insert a variety of carefully worded page titles & ‘meta descriptions’ that will help get you noticed.
Step 2 – We then notify the Big 3 Search Engines: Google, Yahoo & MSN/Bing – who collectively account for 98% of all search queries (Feb 2012 stats) that your site has launched. We also send them a ‘sitemap’ which explains your site structure & the pages and categories this contains.
Step 3 – Typically within 24-72 hours of ‘launch’, the Big 3 will ‘crawl’ your site and your page titles and descriptions will begin to show up in search results. Note: It is not uncommon for rankings to be quite low initially (unless you are promoting something relatively unique or niche, that would have little online competition). We say allow 3-4 weeks for more accurate results.
Step 4 – Soon after launch, Surefire Creative will write a news article on this website about your business & website (view examples here). We will also include a direct link to your website too!
Step 5 – Your site will then be crawled periodically over time as the search engines seek out updated & new information and pages. It is therefore key that the site is reviewed regularly & new information is added to keep your site both interesting and current.
Extras - Surefire Creative are happy to carry out additional paid works at a later date (adding pages, updates) but we advise waiting until 3 months from launch & promoting your site by the methods suggested in our SEO TIPS before contacting us to discuss Surefire Support options.
