Common Web Design Questions
What platform do you use to build your websites?
I build all of my websites within WordPress. WordPress powers more than 42% of the entire internet, which means the possibilities are endless.
Will a new web design help improve my visibility on Google and other search engines?
Google primarily looks for relevant and updated content on your website rather than focusing on design. When Google and other web crawlers analyze your website, they read the text and Alt Tags on your images. So, does Google really care about how your website looks? No.
However, users and visitors do care, and they care a lot. If someone lands on a poorly designed website, they are likely to leave immediately, resulting in a high bounce rate. Google does consider bounce rates when evaluating websites. A good web design serves both Google and visitors by providing great content in a well-organized design.
How much does a new web design cost?
The cost of a new web design varies based on factors such as the size of the website (number of pages), content creation needs, and the necessary implementation to serve your website's goals. In my web design studio, prices typically range between $3,500 and $10,000.
What are the differences between custom web design and template-based design?
Template-based design involves using a pre-existing design and filling in the content. Custom web design, on the other hand, focuses on your specific content and determines the best way to present it, building a website around that approach. Many agencies and freelancers use template-based designs for faster delivery, but I prioritize custom web design to ensure your website serves you and your business optimally.
How can I optimize my website's design for search engines (SEO)?
SEO is a separate job from web design, although good web design incorporates good SEO practices as a starting point. To optimize your website's design for SEO, focus on factors such as proper site structure, fast loading speed, mobile responsiveness, optimized images, relevant keywords, and user-friendly navigation.
Is working with a web designer the right move for me and my business?
Working with a web designer can have several benefits for you and your business, including freeing up your time, saving mental energy, ensuring excellent online practices, and allowing you to focus on what you do best for your business. Therefore, I would say, "YES!"
What is web design, and how is it different from web development?
Web design and web development go hand-in-hand. In technical terms, web design focuses on the visual components and layout of the website, while web development implements that design to create the functioning website. As a "front end developer," I handle both web design and web development on all my projects, providing the best value when choosing a web designer or agency for your website project.
Will I see immediate results from a redesigned website?
A website redesign brings both tangible and intangible results.
- Increased trust, likability, and credibility, leading to more potential leads.
- Your website acts as a 24/7 salesperson, representing your company in the best way possible.
- Google acknowledges website updates, signaling that your website is active.
- Excitement: You will feel a sense of excitement as it represents a fresh start online.
- Confidence: You will feel confident that your website effectively tells your company's story, allowing you to confidently direct people to your website.
- Pride: You can take pride in your beautifully designed website, reflecting your dedication and investment in your brand while serving as a digital showcase for your business.
