Built-in SEO

Search Engine Optimization

With each website we develop our objective is not only to design a great looking website, but also make your website work hard for the city.

We achieve this by applying standard SEO (search engine optimization) practices to your site pages during the web development process. Our approach to achieving better search engine results involves increasing your visibility with quality website code – developed to W3C best practices and optimized to ensure there are no road blocks, nor exit points within your site code that may otherwise cause a search engine to leave your site prematurely.

Applying the basic SEO tactics outlined below helps ensure your site performs at its very best using the content you have provided. During this process our team may insert new keywords, page titles, page descriptions, create new sentences and/or paragraphs to help communicate your message more effectively and improve your SEO – to the extent of the Basic SEO Package included with every website we develop.
