The WizardsWebs Approach to SEO
Just having the best website design is not enough if no one can find it. Web SEO Services address the challenge of ranking well on the popular search engines. Unfortunately, full SEO services are very expensive.
We believe that small businesses need another option. The WizardsWebs SEO approach is (1) to handle the on-page work the client needs a web developer to handle, and (2) support and guide our clients to complete the off-site SEO tasks they can do themselves.
This reduces client dependence on third parties and helps them better understand SEO factors going forward. Consequently, significant cost savings may be realized by the small business client without sacrificing results.
Fortunately, WordPress is an excellent platform for SEO. There are also new tools to help optimize website design, evaluate site performance and identify areas needing improvement.
Online Business Website Design
Need a shopping cart? WizardsWebs offers the latest in online business website design. We utilize the WordPress platform along with WooCommerce. This combination provides the latest technology and responsive web design for presentation on any device. Besides low cost, one of the biggest advantages is that the platform enables the small business owner to handle as much of the product page work as they wish. This saves them money and allows them to retain personal control of their storefront. WooCommerce is now the most popular eCommerce platform on the web. It works with PayPal and all the popular payment systems. Contact us for more information.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
If I have you build my website, do I own it?
Yes and no. If you want to move a site we built for you to another hosting service you can, but there are limitations.
It is the same as when you go to a photographer. The photographer retains copyright and assigns usage right to you. Upon final payment for our design services, the Client is assigned rights to use as a website the design, graphics, and text contained in the finished assembled website. Rights to photos, graphics, source code, media, work-up files, and computer programs are specifically not transferred to the Client, and remain the property of their respective owners. Copyright to Client supplied text and images are retained by Client and will not be disclosed or reused by WizardsWebs Design LLC unless permission is granted in writing by Client.
As part of Maintenance, we allow use of a number of licenses. However, licenses for website themes and plugins are not transferred if you take your website to different hosting. You would need to purchase those licenses to use those components or get the updates for them if you move to another hosting service.
I already have a website but it has problems. Can you fix it?
We would be happy to take a look at it for you without cost or obligation. If the site is built on WordPress we can probably help you. However, we don't work on the old HTML websites any longer. We also don't work on Joomla or Drupal.
After you build my website, can I take care of it myself?
Certainly. If you have the technical aptitude you are welcome to take care of your website yourself. We can provide you administrative access. However, we don't offer training. Also, if you screw something up and we have to fix it for you, we will charge for the work.
However, we strongly recommend you let us handle your website maintenance. There are more things we check, monitor and adjust than I could list on this page. Unless you have done this work for years you couldn't know all the things that need to be addressed. This should be done on a consistent basis in order to keep your website healthy, encourage continued traffic growth, and strengthen your SEO and Google rankings.
Regular monitoring of your website is a must for keeping your business running smoothly and you should budget for keeping the website maintained. There are ongoing costs to consider including annual plugin licenses, your SSL certificate, backup vault storage, image optimization, SEO work, and developer hours to make changes to the website and to update the plugins. Successful businesses need websites with fresh content and up to date information. Our clients have us add pictures, add and remove products, change staff contact info, update holiday hours, add new blog posts, and the list goes on.
We offer discounted maintenance plans to deal with all of these tasks and costs starting at $50 month or you can just pay for developer hours and licenses you use.
We take care of these tasks and expenses if you subscribe to website maintenance:
- The cost of your SSL certificate and installation (for https) making your site secure.
The costs of the theme license and most licensed plugins such as Yoast Premium SEO, Yoast Local SEO, Updraft, Formcraft, Gravity Forms, etc.
- Daily backups to cloud storage and the storage cost ($10 extra for large sites)
- The costs of ongoing image optimization (TinyPNG)
- Periodic Site Audits to check for areas needing improvement.
- Site plugin and theme updates twice a week and testing for conflicts.
- Resolve any mobility issues or errors reported by Google Search Console.
- Check for broken links, 404 pages, and create redirects as needed.
- Allocate developer hours each month for whatever you need done (changes to website, feature of the month, adding testimonials, adding pictures, adding services, updating prices, adding blog posts, add an email mailbox, etc.)
I already have a website. Can you help me with SEO?
So much of SEO is integral to the website design, we no longer offer SEO services for any website that we did not build. All new website design we do includes the on-page SEO work so you may be better off letting us build you a new site with the latest technology and SEO built in.
If I have you build my website, do I have to stay with WizardsWebs forever?
Once you website is finished and you have paid for the design work, you can export your website and take it to a different hosting and maintenance service at any time if you wish. There are no term agreement obligations. As part of Maintenance we allow use of a number of licenses. However, licenses for website themes and plugins are not transferred if you take your website to different hosting. You would need to purchase those licenses to continue to receive updates for those components.
What if something happens to you?
I don't need changes made to my website. Can I decline website maintenance?
Website maintenance is optional. However, there is more to website maintenance than making changes to the website. If you choose not to subscribe to maintenance you will be responsible for:
- The cost of your SSL certificate
- The annual license cost of any premium plugins
- Website security
- Making plugin and theme updates yourself
- Making backups and the cost of backup storage
- Correcting any mobility issues or 404 issues that Google identifies
- Making changes to the website
WizardsWebs is not responsible for website performance and security if we do not perform the maintenance. Sites that are not maintained that constitute a security threat to our servers may be suspended.
In addition to competitive rates for web design and hosting, we offer discounted rates for ongoing website support.
Most important, your new responsive design website will be unique, reflecting your quality business and display properly across all devices.
Search Engine Optimization
Of critical importance, new sites are designed to be compliant with Google Search guidelines and optimized for relevant search terms.
Social Media Integration
Furthermore we can integrate your website with all the popular social media.
