Starting out life as a blog publisher, which allowed anybody to publish a page on the internet.

This has now evolved into flexible open source systems with endless possibilities through the numerous plugin contributions to its core.

The importance of web design and natural referencing

SEO Motors

A. Based on the right selection of keywords together with a well constructed, coded, and illustrated content, that corresponds best to the strict algorithms used by the principal search engines, such as Google.
Therefore your site can simply be found by internet users because it is high up on the search results page.

B. OFF PAGE optimisation with back-links. These are simply links placed on other pertinent web sites that point, when clicked upon, to the web site being optimised.
These back-links can be in the form of social media websites, such as Facebook, or authoritative websites.
Otherwise put, those that agree to mutually link, by relevance, to the subject matter.

C. Google is changing how it sees web based searches in the future and is shifting from answers to "journeys". That is to say to invite the searcher to arrive at the sought after answer via a "journey" of discovery.

  • This means the journey will become the focal point for Google’s future of search.

  • Increasingly, the search engine will know where you are in your journey quest, it'll remember what you did and where you most likely want to go.

  • It wants you to discover and consume more content: therefore providing more content (ads), throughout this journey, instead of just pointing to pages that conform to keywords and pertinence.

  • therefore reinforcing the adage "content is king".

  • Because the context of a search will be taken into account, not necessarily a keyword; maybe you don't know the technical name for a new phenomenon that you're curious about. How does the search engine answer that journey?

  • This is the application of an artificially intelligent interpretation, known as AI, of the vague explication of that, which, you're actually attempting to search for.

Such as modifying the text and images found in the site pages or articles (you dont need to be a developer!). The same can be said for certain functionalities (small applications that make a page visit a better experience) and their place on the page or, indeed the page chosen for their display.

Web definitions ...

affichage mobileADAPTIVE Web design - Depending on the type of device used our sites look good on all mobile screens. The contents adapt to the screen size.
This can include prioritising and selecting contents for tablets and smart phones.

In this way the page is not clipped at the edges and stays automatically compatible for all the visitors.
In order to achieve this the web site contents are written separately for each type of viewing support. As such there is, in effect a website for each device perfectly adapted to screen width and type of information delivery and optimisation.
Therefore favouring rapidity, reader comfort and a fluid presentation well shaped for the type of screen and user search.

RESPONSIVE web design We use 'Responsive' Web design using the same web-site. Thereby tailoring the contents to automatically reposition according to the screen width and device type.
The same content can be shown or hidden, following this selective process, in order to optimise the presentation of information.

More and more visitors are using mobile phones to get information, quickly, from a site, whilst on the move. Otherwise they are simply distracting themselves, to pass the time in a queue or waiting room.



Search engine Optimisation SEO: search engine

The purpose of a good web site is to present information to it's visitors. In order to do this it must be "findable" on the Internet.

Some visitors may have found the site name in an advert or business card, however the majority of visitors depend upon a search engine for this information.

So it is of vital importance that the site is both recognised and appreciated by the engine. If it is appreciated (ie it respects the strict criteria of a well organised site) then it will be listed high up on the results page; hopefully amongst the first page of results!

Although this is an organic process, that will reward those sites being present for a certain duration; will inevitably lead to this effort being rewarded by a marked increase in the total number of visitors.
That is to say that the site becomes more "visible" on the internet.



Organic or Natural referencing (SEO)

This involves the optimisation through respecting on-page and off page improvements. These will include the code and contents for on-page optimising, together with the site being linked to. Off page optimisation, linking from other relevant site, as the means of natural off-page optimisation, from a site such as a forum, for example.

We can see that these types of improvements do not require payments for advertising hence are 'organic', through the site construction, and adhere to the strict algorithms used to analyse the utility of the external web site.
