Web Design is amazingly important to your online success. At No1 SEO Ireland we understand that your website is the first port of call for most potential clients and customers. It is the public face of many companies. If this face is not engaging and the message doesn’t come across well then your conversion rates are going to be very low. This is why it is so necessary to find a web design company that treats each and every client with individual attention and not just as another face in the crowd.
Responsive Web Design
Today, the first question you need to ask yourself – is my website responsive? Can it be seen properly on a mobile device such as an iPad or a Smart Phone? Are you left trying to adjust the size and playing with the screen in order to read the smaller pieces of information? With 70% of website visits now coming from mobile devices, this is a very necessary question.
It is also necessary to ensure that the website works equally well across a range of browsers. Some browsers don’t have the same functionalities as the majority. When the capability is there, it only makes sense to ensure the best possible result.
What makes No1 SEO Ireland different to our competitors is that with us a
Responsive Website Design is STANDARD !

Easy to Navigate Websites
Next, will be the ease of use of the website. Have you ever went to a website looking for a particular piece of information which you knew was there but were unable to find due to the bad layout and design of the website. Here at No1 SEO Ireland, the aim is to make your website as easy to navigate as possible. Our websites are designed with the idea that no matter what the client is looking for there are several ways to move around the website in an easy, fluid manner.
We consider the look of the website to be of vast importance. It is necessary to place all the information on the website in such a way that it still looks clean and uncluttered. Having a website that is too ‘BUSY’ can put people off. It is sometimes necessary where there is an overload of information to split it into one or more subsequent pages so the customer can absorb each major point being put forward.
Visually Attractive Web Design
Our websites are all visually attractive. The line “A picture speaks a thousand words” is no less true when it comes to building a website. Often having just the right image on a page can grab a potential clients attention. This leads them to engage with the site increasing the opportunity for a conversion.
Easy to Use and Edit
All our websites are built on WordPress or Joomla and come with a CMS. This means that with a minimum of tuition website owners will be able to add new content and images. Very convenient when you are updating your blog regularly. No1 SEO Ireland has a qualified trainer with the ‘ Train The Trainer’ qualification. This allows us to effectively train people in the use of their website.
This training will free them from:
- Having to pay to get such work done.
- Any delays in getting the work done.
No1 SEO Ireland does not normally provide logo design. In cases where the budget is a major concern, we can provide some logo samples. We would prefer that clients use a professional logo design company. This is because Logo Design can be very time consuming and in some cases can end up taking as long to complete as the website build. You probably all know that Irish Water spent €20,000 on their logo. If not you can read about it here.
Copy for the website will in most cases come from you, the client. If you feel you would rather have us write the copy this can, of course, be added to the website build package. Alternatively, we can place you in contact with a copywriter and work with the received copy as normal. If you are also taking advantage of our SEO specialist skills then in all likelihood any copy put forward for the website will have small changes to improve the SEO strength of the copy while not interfering with the message.
We would recommend at least 300 words per page. Pages with less content than this have difficulty getting the top rankings on search engines. The average content for the best pages on Google in 2017 in high competition areas was 1,808 words.
SEO Planned Web Design
What makes No1 SEO Ireland different than any other web design company in Ireland is that we believe in the necessity of using your whole website to carry your company message. We also believe in using the whole website in getting you to rank for the keywords most necessary to target your potential clients. Most web design companies just add in the SEO after the website is built. Or not at all! At No1 SEO Ireland we believe in planning the website for the results you want and in this way can present you with a website that will have you miles ahead of your competition.
