Our skilled developers create websites are built using best coding practices and are search engine SEO optimised to load fast, work on all devices, from smart-phones to laptops, tablets and desktop PCs, with well-researched and carefully crafted content that ranks higher on Google, Yahoo and Bing search engines. We work with the most cutting edge web and database technologies, including the main CMS content management systems i.e. WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, plus major ecommerce platforms ie Magento, Shopify and WooCommerce for WordPress. We pay close attention to the top On-Site key SEO ranking factors influencing how your site will perform in the search engine results pages / SERPS.

The Top 10 Google Website Ranking Factors

Here are the top 10 ranking factors out of 200+ that Google uses to rank websites, that show content, speed and mobile responsiveness as major ranking factors. List courtesy of Brian Dean at Backlinko.

  • Keyword at the beginning of your title tag
  • Content length: write at least 1500 words p/page
  • Page loading speed - fast sites rank higher
  • Keyword prominence + position i.e. in URL
  • Page authority / pagerank
  • Domain authority
  • Link relevancy
  • Bounce rate and dwell time
  • Mobile -responsive design
  • Thin or duplicate content
searching for your website is like finding a needle in a haystack - you need search engine optimisation / seo in web design

Why Your Website Needs To Rank Higher in the SERPS

Google website search results pages show why search engine optimisation / SEO is vital for your business
90% of all search engine results pages website clicks are to Page 1.

Higher rankings in the search engine results pages SERPS will increase the number of visitors to your site. Visitor traffic is the lifeblood of any website; even yours! Is your search engine visitor traffic poor or worse, non-existent?

Can your target audience find you for a keyword search on Google?  If your site is not found on Pages 1 – 3 in the search engines; and ideally in the top 5 results of Page 1; it’s effectively invisible.

Google Ranks Mobile Friendly / Responsive Sites Higher

Many older websites are not mobile friendly, causing your hard-earned visitors to click away. Illustrated is a good example of the difference between a responsive site and a non-responsive site. The non-responsive site content is too small to read and requires users to pinch and zoom the webpage to be able to use it, which is not at all ideal.

What’s worse, you could be losing search engine ranking if your site is not mobile friendly. In 2015 Google announced a push to treat sites built with mobile users in mind more favourably than non-mobile friendly / non-responsive sites. As a result, mobile friendly sites began ranking higher in Google SERPS. In 2016 Google announced it will eventually switch to using mobile versions of sites, rather than desktop versions, in search results.

All 1LG websites are built to be mobile-friendly and mobile-responsive.

You Need An SSL Certificate For Your Website To Be Seen As Trustworthy

website SSL certificates essential for SEO
Websites with SSL Certificates display a green padlock in the address bar left of the URL

In 2014 Google introduced HTTPS as a lightweight ranking signal to raise awareness of online security issues and encourage website owners to get SSL certificates for their sites. Look for the green padlock in the address bar and for the URL to start with HTTPS:// instead of HTTP:// like you see on banking and eCommerce websites.

Google’s reasoning is to make the web a safer place by ensuring secure server connections and maximum privacy for users. Unlike before, HTTPS pages will now get boost in Google search and shown to users by default. SSL security is essential for eCommerce enabled online stores, and while not mandatory, it’s recommended for any site with a login, such as those on the WordPress CMS platform.

eCommerce Website Design & Development


BRINGING THE HIGH STREET TO A WEBSITE NEAR YOU

We’ve built ecommerce enabled websites on a variety of platforms, including WordPress WooCommerce and Magento. The ‘new kid on the block’ is Shopify. Historically we’ve even custom-built eCommerce sites using ASP and MsSQL. We can provide integration with all mainstream payment processing providers including PayPal, Stripe, WorldPay, SagePay and more.

Magento is world’s fastest growing enterprise-class eCommerce platform, empowering over 250,000 online retailers to date and chosen by 1 of every 4 eCommerce businesses, ranging from startups to merchants turning over more than $100m / £100m online.

Magento powers some of the world’s largest brand online stores with large product catalogues and / or high sales volumes, due to its scalability, flexibility and amazing features. Not only do we build Magento stores, but we’ve also had first-hand experience in operating our own 5000 SKU Magento eCommerce store at Sinfulthrills.co.uk – so we know what we’re talking about.

Built on the WordPress extendable, adaptable, open-sourced platform, WooCommerce is the world’s most popular eCommerce solution powering over 28% of all online stores. WooCommerce gives store owners complete control and the ability to add control to sell anything, anywhere – physical products, digital downloads, services, tickets and more.

Woocommerce functionality caters for all your logistical and technical requirements. With Woocommerce we can build the store you and your clients need. We can even set you up with a fully functional ‘multi-vendor marketplace’ similar to the Etsy portal.

We can also provide Shopify store development and consultancy. Like Woocommerce and Magento, Shopify  is a complete ecommerce solution that allows you to set up an online store to sell your goods, organise your products, customise your storefront, accept credit card payments, track and respond to orders. Unlike the other two, the difference is that Shopify is a hosted eCommerce platform.

Web Support Services + Hosting & Domains


A WELL-MAINTAINED AND HEALTHY WEBSITE WILL ALWAYS RANK HIGHER IN THE SERPS THAN ONE THAT'S NOT

An slow or ‘flaky’ web hosting service, coupled with out-of-date website code could be damaging your ranking in the SERPS. Not only that, insecure hosting could leave your site vulnerable and a target for hackers. Both scenarios are not only bad for your search engine rankings, but are  also not good for business. Our IT Services are designed to support your businesses digital assets and avoid  the perils of cheap website hosting. In addition to technical search engine optimisation services, we also provide both ad-hoc fixes and regular support and maintenance services for client and non-client sites, and even for sites that are not hosted on our servers, to help protect your website files from these types of issues.

The Web Design & Development Process


SEO IS INTEGRATED INTO THE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT PROCESS FROM THE START

All web design & development projects require teamwork. The customer is also part of the ‘team’.  The more complex the project, the more important it is to have a project plan with a solid workflow process. This approach ensures all skills, materials and collateral required for a successful project delivery are clearly identified early on and monitored as the project progresses. A typical project plan would include ‘work in progress’ milestones + client responsibilities and feedback points identified, like the example below:
