Web Design

  • How long will it take to design my website?

    This can vary depending on the complexity and and functionality required for your website. Most of the websites we create for our clients can take anywhere from 1 week to 1 month.

  • How do you build the website?

    We build our websites using HTML, CSS & JavaScript. Although if you would prefer us to use a CMS such as wordpress then that's fine.

  • Are there any hidden costs?

    No. We agree a fixed price with you, which means you know exactly what you will pay. Quotes are always given before we start any work, and costs are clearly documented. The only time we would charge additional fees would be in the instances where a client requests a new page or some additional material or images for the website after work has commenced. Charges for additional work such as this are always given before the work starts.

  • Will I own the finished product?

    Yes. All we ask is the right to post screenshots and a description of your site in our portfolio.

  • How long will it take to appear at the top of Google?

    The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases. Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however there are a number of factors that can improve your chances. With our on page SEO services we will target specific keywords relating to Google searches in your area for your service and optimize your content for maximum results.

  • How will I know if anyone is visiting my website?

    We will install Google Analytics software on your website and show you how to log into your Google Analytics account where you can see a wide range of statistics about your website including number of visits, page views and the amount of time people are spending on your website.

  • What happens after the website is launched?

    Once your website is launched, we will provide support for the first 14days to make sure any bugs have been ironed out and that you are confident with your new website. After this you will need to contact either Northrise Digital for updates or another Web development company. This way you have 100% ownership of the website. If you would prefer to have regular support and updates for your website let us know and we can come to an agreement. However, if there are any bugs with your website at any point we will be happy to fix these free of charge.

SEO

  • What does SEO stand for?

    SEO stands for search engine optimisation. SEO was really made popular as a result of Google’s search engine although people were doing SEO long before Google. A search engine can mean anything from Google, Yahoo, Bing or even other search engines such as Amazon search.

  • What is SEO?

    In general, most people will “Google” a question they have and choose one of the top listings, or maybe go to the second page. The goal of SEO is to help your website rank on the first page of Google for those keywords so that customers will find your website before your competitors. SEO is the process of optimising a website so that search engines will rank your website higher in the rankings. When you first start doing SEO, you might be ranked on the 15th or 8th page of Google. After doing SEO for a period of time, you’ll start to see your website move closer and closer to page 1 for a number of keywords. By doing SEO, it will not guarantee that you will rank on Google but it will greatly increase your odds of doing so.

  • How do you do SEO?

    On-page SEO is the practice of optimising elements on your website for search engines. This includes but isn’t limited to content on your websites, images on your website, blogs, and HTML. On-page SEO encompasses many different disciplines such as website speed, blogging, content, user experience and so much more. Any area of your website that Google “sees” is subject to on-page optimization. Off-page SEO is the practice of optimizing elements off of your website for search engines. Probably the biggest example of off-page SEO are backlinks, however there are lots of other elements such as social media, external blogs and many other factors that might come into play. When we “do” SEO on a website, we simply improve the on-page and off-page factors of your website so that Google will see your website in a more favourable position.

  • How long does SEO take?

    Within a few days of doing SEO you might see some initial results. Maybe you will rank on Google for some very obscure keywords. After a month, you will see even more and a few months after that even more. Remember, SEO is a process, not an event. If you are interested in immediate results you may be interested in advertising or PPC marketing. If you want to build your business and gain exposure over a long period of time for your brand, SEO is the way to go.

  • How much does SEO cost?

    We currently have 3 packages for our SEO services. These can be found in our SEO Packages

  • Should I start SEO before or after my website is built?

    We highly recommend that SEO is implemented during the creation of your website. It is might easier to build SEO into your website during the creation phase than to build it in after the fact. It’s all about first impressions, the first time Google sees your website you want to make sure it loads fast, has the right keywords implemented, and looks great. You don’t want Google to see an un-optimized version of your website the first time it crawls your website.
