Give your site a boost. Boost your website with enhancements by BDP Web Design. If you’re already content with your WordPress site, then you may want to consider some additional improvements to your website. Give your site a boost beyond competitors with a responsive design, SEO, page speed (WPO), social media marketing and retina display. You have the option to choose one enhancement or all of them.
Responsive Web Page Design
Complete your website creation by optimizing it for any device. Look professional on a desktop, laptop, tablet, phone and anything that’s on-the-go compatible. Convert your existing theme to a responsive design for an optimal viewing and interaction experience.
What is a responsive website? Responsively designed websites are websites that respond to their environment because of their multiple fluid grid layouts. To simplify, a responsive site basically means your site is flexible toward any screen it is being viewed on.
Do I really need a responsive design? Well, no but there is a tremendous increase in the amount of users browsing online via mobile devices such as phones and tablets. So for a better user experience, a responsive website is essential.
How do I make a site responsive? Developing a responsive website uses CSS and HTML to resize, hide, shrink, enlarge and move the content to fit any screen size.
The fine print: this enhancement focuses only on fitting your content for any screen, whereas the stand-alone project, mobile optimization, covers fitting content for any screen, implementation of retina display, web design and web development of a mobile version for your website.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Is your site nowhere to be found on Google, Bing or any other search engines? It takes some time for Google to capture a website’s content. I can help speed up that process, along with properly enforcing desired keywords and best practice SEO tactics throughout your content.
What is SEO? Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of capturing traffic to a website or web page for free within a search engine’s search results; often referred to as “natural,” “organic,” or “earned” results. So when you search for something in Google for example, these will be the search results that aren’t listed as ads.
How do I optimize my site to increase traffic? Optimizing a site may involve editing content, specific keywords, headers, images, inbound links, backlinks, allowing search engines to index your site, and a lot more tactics. Using best practice for all SEO tactics can have a superb increase toward the amount of viewers your site averages daily.
Can you guarantee my website reaches the first page on Google? No. Depending on your competition, this could be a very difficult task. Although, I have reached the #1 spot on Google, Bing and other search engines for several different keywords specific to my site content. Because of quality content, a web page from my first website has also been cited in Wikipedia, which is a great backlink to achieve due to Wikipedia’s high PageRank.
WPO (Web Performance Optimization)
Why in the world is my site so slow? There could be several things slowing down your site or maybe just a few. Either way, I can dig into your sites core functionality and discover what’s slowing down your web pages. Better yet, I can solve the issue by locating the error and removing it or reconfiguring it. Increase your sites overall speed for a smooth and fast-paced user experience.
Is pagespeed important? Absolutely. Most web users expect a website to load within 2 seconds and they tend to leave a site after 3 seconds or more. If you have a slow site, then you are leading your targeted audience to the next search result, which is your competition.
How do I speed up my website? A number of optimizations go into a website’s page speed. Minimize HTTP requests, reduce server response time, enable compression, enable browser caching, optimize images and CSS delivery, reduce the amount of redirects and plenty more. If you don’t know how to solve your slowness issues, then allow me to help.
Convert your website into a truly beautiful display with the use of retina. Satisfy your visitors with razor sharp images and fonts. Capture the eye of your audience by showing them how professional you are with breathtaking images. You’re not finished designing your website until you have incorporated a retina display.
What is retina display? Retina display refers to devices and monitors that have a resolution and pixel density high enough that a person is unable to detect the individual pixels at a normal viewing distance. Basically, it displays more pixels per inch (around 2-3 more times).
Is a retina ready website necessary? Yes and no. Although millions of people have retina devices, just as many people don’t. As a web designer, I try to supply the best quality experience for every device. Therefore, it is important not to isolate users of older technologies. Luckily, there are a few approaches to have a retina image fallback to the regular size for devices that don’t support retina technology. This way, all your users are happy and all your images are always looking sharp. Converting your website to be retina ready can be an extremely complicated process, but I am here to help!
