Web Methodology

Before starting a website you should know the goal of your site, your budget, your audience, required features and functionality. At Bluegroper Web Development we have a simple 4 point methodology:

Our Process

  1. Gather your requirements,  documenting using our proven template - Document of Requirements, download here.
  2. Design your website using one of the popular content management systems and create a custom theme, we can even use your pictures in creating the artwork.
  3. Build and test your website creating the blocks and pages with your content.
  4. Deploy your website as agreed in the Document of Requirements.

We listen to our clients to get an indepth understanding of their business, their competitors as well as the web vision they are trying to achieve. Next we translate this information into an interactive online solution. Once we have defined the solution, we build their website, test and launch.

Website design using templates

Web templates are ready made website designs that will save you a lot of time and money in the development of your website. All web templates here are well designed and can be fully customised to meet your needs. There are many designs for all the open source content management systems available today. We have responsive HTML5 designs animated by JQuery, flash, facebook, ecommerce shopfronts,  and templates powered by MOTO CMS.

 

RSS feeds

Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a web feed format used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries and news headlines in a standardised format. Subscribers to your feed can then be kept up to date when you update your website content. It also can provide a convenient way for you to receive content "feeds" from a variety of sources, including the latest news headlines from news sources to your website. We can help with creating your feed from your existing website blog/news, automatically updating when new content is posted and syndicate it through the popular Google Feedburner.

If you have a blog and would like to share it with another website one of the best ways to do that is via an RSS Feed, the blog site puts out an RSS feed with titles, image, summary, link, author, date/time and the 2nd site picks up the feed and displays it in a list for users to click on and go to your original blog. For an example of an RSS feed in action go to my blog feed.

Social Media

Have your site in tune and connected with social media through linking your site. Increase page views and audience by encouraging visitors to share content to social channels.

Open Graph Meta Tags

The Open Graph Protocol enables you to integrate your Web pages into the social graph. It is currently designed for Web pages representing profiles of real-world things — things like movies, sports teams, celebrities, and restaurants. Including Open Graph tags on your Web page, makes your page equivalent to a Facebook Page. It is a way to organise how your content is viewed through social media, when someone clicks on a button the social media site uses Open Graph to display a summary and picture that represents your site. This is done through Open Graph Meta tags and used with facebook, google+, pinterest and many other socual sites. Have your site social media friendly by using Open Graph.

Search Engine Optimisation

If you have a website whether it be for your personal profile or small business then you would probably want to be listed on the first page of an internet search results. And that is not surprising as major studies show the majority of internet users searching Google, Bing and Yahoo only bother to look at the first few pages of search results. The studies also show that internet users also consider the search result pages to be good advice, meaning that the websites at the top of the results have a natural advantage. And there are a host of internet companies that offer SEO services all making claims that they can get your website to list on the first page of Google results. When the truth is that no one can make that promise as no one truly knows what Google have up their sleeve with their constant improvement process. In fact many legitimate business websites and blogs have been hit hard disappearing from search results altogether by Google's Panda & Penguin algorithm updates because the SEO companies they hired used spammy SEO techniques or SEO over-optimisation.

The top reasons for SEO penalties from Google and what you should avoid are poor quality backlinks, lack of fresh content, poor SEO, lack of social interaction, and more importantly over-optimisation by spending more time working for search engines than attracting visitors is not being productive. At Bluegroper Web Development we work to ensure your website has the best chances of achieving a higher ranking with Google and all the search engines.
