What our clients ask quite often

It depends on complexity, number of pages, required functionalities and design. Generally speaking, a simple, basic, brochure website with a one-page layout would cost about £300. The cost of a simple multipage website starts from £600-£800. See our ‘website price calculator’ page.

Yes, but not everything is editable.
If you have a WordPress site, there are many options: You can edit all of your content as well as menu, footer, home page slider - pretty much everything. However, our experience is that it’s not always the best idea. If you’re a techy you may find it easy to edit all of your website but be careful; you need to know what you’re doing. You won’t cause any damage by adding a new blog post or re-writing the wording on a page, but when it comes to more in-depth changes such as images changing font size, adding special formatting or just changing font colour, it’s likely that you won’t follow best practice. As a result, your page will be slower. You might think that you don’t notice any changes in speed and indeed one minor change won’t make any difference. But if you do it regularly, your site could gradually get slower. In this case the website’s UX level could drop and slowly but surely it will have a negative impact on your SEO and on your business.
In the case of a custom website, what is editable will depend on your needs.

Yes and no - it depends. Firstly, you need to understand what SEO is about. We always do our best to build a fast, and technically optimised website. However, successful SEO is about much more than just the site’s setup. The content, your content’s length, website structure, link structure, usage of language, readability, length of paragraphs and sentences – all these have an impact on your search position, to mention just a few.
Hundreds and thousands of websites offer SEO advice and many of them are very good. The problem is that they are mostly difficult to understand for the average business owner.
We really want you to understand your role in a successful SEO process. That’s why we created this page about SEO, containing only the information that we think you need to know. Have a look at our SEO checklist too.

Is your website newly launched? If yes, of course you can’t find it in any search engine.
Is your website newly launched? You may not realise it but when you search, the results don’t show the ‘live’ internet. The list you see is stored data from the search engine’s database. So, if your website is new it takes time for Google (or DuckDuckGo, Yahoo, Bing, etc.) to find and store information about it.
Is your website relatively old and you still can’t find it?
There could be a lot of reasons why it doesn’t come up in search engines. You may be able to find out what the problem is yourself using a website analysis service (free or non-free options are also available). Alternatively, contact us for a free SEO analysis.

Let’s start with the most important fact: SEO is not just a ‘setting’. There’s no such thing as a bullet-proof approach. There are guidelines, best practices and methods but it’s a long ballgame, where you don’t know when and how you achieve what you want. It’s not possible to say exactly how much work is needed to get better results and it depends too on how competitive your keywords (and your business) are. Sometimes it’s quite easy to achieve a result, but other times it takes months. The cost could be quite low (a few hundred pounds) if your key phrase doesn’t have much competition but it could cost a lot more if your business area is packed with competitors. So it’s just not possible to generalise about cost. There are many different SEO analysis websites eg., this or this.
