DJ website live

2 December 2009

We've just put live a new DJ website for Swindon DJ Kelz Clarkson.

The website is a place for Kelz to promote herself and her upcoming gigs and events.

Kelz is now able to update the website using the Content Management System to add photo albums, photos, videos, blog entries, news, event listings and links to her latest mixes.

New CMS being built

8 November 2009

The upgrade at the beginning of this year to the new Content Management System (CMS) was a huge success and clients found it a lot easier to maintain and manage their websites.

As we start to approach larger clients we've found that a new feature that they'd find useful is the ability to have multiple user logins and be able to set permissions per user.

The new Content Management System that we're building not only has multiple users and different permissions per user, but also has a few more useful updates.

The WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) content editor has been changed so now there aren't any fixes needed. Using a function you can copy and paste from Microsoft products, such as Word, and also all content is rendered in XHTML.

All the same great functionality from before is back, but is now written in Object Orientated PHP, meaning that the development side is easier to maintain, and so easier to add more functionality modules.

You are now able to set which page is your home page, rather than this being hard-coded.

Sitemaps will be even better handled.

RSS Feeds are going to be published for most areas of the website.

The new Content Management System is currently only being used on one website with very limited functionality, but it's working really well as we'd hoped.

In the pipeline we currently have around 10 projects that are also going to be built using this new Content Management System.

Website changes

28 September 2009

Recently we have been toying with the idea of giving customers and clients a set price list.

With websites this isn't always easy because functionality can get quite indepth and the design can be very complicated - but we've come up with some ball point figures.

They're not set in stone so if you want a little extra or a little less then we can add or deduct accordingly.

Starting later today we'll also be advertising online using Google AdWords and so we've made the home page very clear about what we do and our purpose and how to find out more.

The website packages are right there for you to select from.

We've cut down our website portfolio to only show what we would count to be a very few of our best websites.

And we've also removed the sub pages under "Design Services" and put all the other design services under one page.

We now have some prices on our website for you to work from.

And also we've added a page showing all the website features that you could have on your website.

Please have a look around, and let us know if you find anything hard to navigate.

What standard SEO do we carry out?

26 September 2009

For starters, SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation and is the term given to try and direct search engines at your website for different search terms.

Each page of a website should be optimised for that individual page.

If you want to optimise two pages for the same keywords or key phrase then it's more than likely that these two pages should actually be merged together into one page - that way you can put all your efforts into optimising one page rather than two.

The first on page optimisation that I'd suggest would be your <title> tag.

Make sure the web page's title is very keyword rich and descriptive (but still short) for that page.

The worst thing to see is when you go onto a web page and the page title is "Untitled-1" which would be the default title once the developer (or lack there of) saved the file.

Next you'll want to add in some <meta> tags - the keywords and description.

Even though Google doesn't use the keywords <meta> tag, it's still worth putting in for completeness.

The description <meta> tag is what will be used in the Google results directly underneath the page title - so make sure the page description tells the Internet user about the page they're potentially about to see.

Next we're looking at on page content.

The first thing to remember is that a nice, tidy, easy to use and XHTML compliant website is a good start.

If you're not compliant with XHTML then your website is likely to throw back errors, look very different from browser to browser and also not rank as highly - a well made website always does well.

On the page the main page title tag should be a <h1> tag.

Only one <h1> tag should be used per page, and this should be optimised for your keyword f that page.

Then as you go down the page it's good to break your text down into <h2> and <h3> tags for sub headings.

All images on your website should have alt text.

You should have no text colour the same as the background colour.

Remember - although we're optimising for keywords/key phrases, we still need to be friendly to the end user.

If the website visitor is unable to use the website, or understand what all the text is about then we'll lose our visitors, and that is the exact oposite result to what we want.

Google hates broken websites

7 September 2009

If search engines find broken links on your website then they're likely to penalise your search engine rankings as it shows poor maintaining of your website.

Broken external links should just be removed from your website, or put correct to the new correct external link, but broken internal links means that visitors to your website are likely to stumble accross broken links, and this loses credibility for your website and so potentially your company.

We have built an application that will crawl your website and come up with a list of every link on your website, the application will then go one step further and crawl every link to check that it's not a broken link.

Then once finished you will be shown a list of all the broken links on your website so that you can go in and fix the problems.

New DJ application

7 September 2009

Since the Tabbed Media Mania application I have wanted to create a DJ application.

Over the last few days I have been working with similar code from Tabbed Media Mania, and adapting it into a new user interface with more DJ type features.

The DJ application, DJ Mania, is very simple and easy to use.

There are 2 DJ decks, each with their own playlist, volume control and bit rate control (to speed up the audio).

The crossfade slider allows the transition from the left DJ deck to the right DJ deck (and vice versa).

Also, make use of the "Samples" folder that is created with the DJ Mania application. This folder is the place to drop in audio samples that can be played in a 3rd audio channel when using the application.

Aqua Cleaning Services website goes live

22 April 2009

Aqua Cleaning Services approached me needing some SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), a new banner created, and to add some insurance documents.

I had a look at the website which was currently hosted with Telivo and was using an online content management system with MoonFruit.

The MoonFruit CMS wasn't very good and didn't make life very easy.

The company wanted to be found when searching for cleaners in Swindon, yet didn't come up in the results anywhere. Having a look at the website I noticed that the word "Swindon" was not actually anywhere on the website and so without lots of links into the website mentioning "Swindon" there was no way.

The company didn't have any details of the person who originally setup the domain, and Telivo wouldn't let us move the domain name without the details and so we have started up a new wesbite from scratch.

The old website was using images to display text, and Flash to display the header and navigation. This meant that there was only a small amount of content on the page that could be read by search engines.

The new website has a lot more keyword rich crawlable text.

Have a look and let me know what you thnik about Aqua Cleaning Services new website.
