Web design in Hertfordshire

We’ve been working in Hertfordshire as web designers and developers since 2000 and our combined experience of online marketing, SEO and how the internet works has got us quite far. We’re always trying to improve and discover new things about the best way to market ourselves and get the companies that we work for, our clients, noticed online and easy to find on search engines like Google.

There are lots of different web design companies in Hertfordshire so why should you decide to go with us over some of our competitors? Well, how we see it is that you could go with a design agency in London but for most small to middle-sized businesses the cost would be beyond their reach. And then there’s the option of going with your neighbours’ cousin’s son – who has just completed a web design course at college… and I’m sure you know how that can turn out!

We strive to reach a point somewhere in the middle. Our work is always up to date, accessible, search engine friendly and coded to the highest standards. We use top quality but free open source software such as WordPress – which we have become experts at working with – to keep costs down and make sure the sites we build are easy to use by our clients and their customers. But at the same time we work to budgets and timescales that are reasonable to local businesses in and around Hertfordshire. For the best in all round web design in Hertfordshire we can offer you everything you need to get your company online and running a professional website.

How it works

best served cold use many methods to ensure that their sites continue to achieve the best possible rankings and exposure within the world wide web. We have detailed some examples of what we can do for you within these pages. During the web design process we ensure that your site is optimised for search engines so that it will get indexed efficiently and correctly. Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) ensures that the site is easy to read by any system and therefore more accessible.

Another factor best served cold take into consideration is how accessible the site is. This ensures that the site is readable by screen readers and other tools that aid the visually impaired and other users. The idea behind fully accessible websites is that anyone is able to read, understand and use the website regardless of ability. The more accessible your site is the more professional it looks and the happier the search engines are to scan and rank it above your competitors.

Of course, these are only a few of the many factors taken into consideration by best served cold whilst designing your site; rest assured that our designers take every endeavour to maintain a relevant and up to date knowledge of current internet trends. This allows us to keep your site at the forefront of web technology if maintained in house by us.
