Responsive Website Design
At First Page SEO we specialize in creating fast-loading mobile friendly responsive websites that offer an easy user experience and are search engine friendly. When it comes to websites you want one that is fast-loading, easy to navigate, and has the right information in the right place so that your visitors are getting everything they need.
With the popularity of mobile devices, it is crucial for your business to be using a mobile friendly website. Mobile friendly means that the website responds to the user's device and resizes accordingly, giving them an optimum user experience. This can be done through both raw coded websites (HTML5 & PHP) and also with CMS systems like WordPress and Perch.
When it comes to building a website, there are three ways you can go about it. You can have a CMS driven website, where you can make all of your own changes, or you can have a custom coded site where the changes need to be implemented by a website developer. The third option is a hybrid website that is custom coded, with an on-page CMS system. There are pros and cons for each type of website.

SEO and Website Design
When it comes to best practises for SEO, it is always best to start from the ground up. This means incorporating search engine marketing from the start of your website build. We have programs like our Level 1 SEO Program that focuses on ensuring that all aspects of your site are fully optimized, but it is important to have search engine optimization in mind from the start. All websites we build are SEO-friendly and ready to be fully optimized, without any limitations.
One practice we see far too often in website design is development companies creating websites for their clients, but then retaining ownership of both the domain and website. It is our policy to make everything regarding the website in your name. This means you will retain full ownership of site, and it is not "rented" from us.
For website design and development, we provide a fixed cost price with no hidden fees. Everything about our pricing is transparent.
Here's an example for budget purposes:
- » Domain: $25.00 per year
- » Hosting: $250 per year
- » CMS Surcharge (If needed): $400.00
- » Homepage & Overall Design: $400.00
- » Subpages: $180 per page
- » Stock Photography: $20.00 per photo
If you are interested in building a new website or rebuilding a website for placement, take a look at our site samples and give us a call to discuss.
