Website Check-up Services
You don’t burn down the building, just because you don’t like the furniture arrangement.
The following website check-ups, offered by Well Web Development, are designed to analyze the performance of your existing website. We recognize that many poor performing websites don’t need to be completely re-designed. Often you can benefit from an objective, outside analysis to help you prioritize and address specific problems.
Competitive Edge Check Up
During our Competitive Edge Check-Up, we examine your website and your online advertising campaign (if you so choose), and compare and contrast it with your major competitors. We look at the overall user experience, the quality of the content, and how you present your call to action. With our comprehensive analysis in hand, you are able to plan and implement improvements to help you gain a competitive edge on your competitors.
Page Speed Check Up
No one wants to wait around for a slow loading website. If your website does not load fast enough, you’ll lose visitors before they ever see your site. Worse yet, Google may penalize you in search engine results for having a slow loading website!
We have analyzed and improved the speed of our own large informational website, cutting the download time in half! Let us troubleshoot your page speed issues. When we perform our Page Speed Check Up, we take a look at all of the factors that contribute to how fast your webpages load in the browser. We can then offer you a concrete plan to improve your website’s speed.
SEO Check Up
By running our own successful online web properties, we’ve learned how to improve our position in search engine results. We have refined our keyword list and implemented changes to our content and underlying HTML code, with excellent results. In the past 3 years, we have seen our traffic grow by over 80%. Over 90% of our traffic comes from people finding our website in non-paid search engine results (Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and AOL). That’s the power of an effective SEO plan.
We start our SEO Check Up by looking at the keywords you’re currently targeting and evaluate how well your web content is performing for them. Then, we take a closer look at how people are actually searching for your products or services. Armed with this information, we can implement incremental changes to your keyword list, content and HTML code that will improve your rank in search results.
Even if you’ve already done some SEO work on your website, you may still benefit from our SEO Check Up. Remember that over time, the words and phrases that people use to find your product or services will change. Keeping up with these trends will help you continue to increase your web traffic. Let us help you stay ahead of your competition.
Web Form Check Up
Most people are aware that the web presents certain security challenges. One of the most frequently exploited parts of a website is the web form. Lack of proper input validation is the number one cause of website security issues. Let our programmers examine the code that processes your web forms, to make sure that any malicious data entered into your web forms is handled properly to minimize your security risk.
Who, or what, is filling out your web forms?
It is possible to write a program or script to fill out web forms automatically. Some people use these programs to upload lots of spam to your web site, forum or blog (such as “BUY VIAGRA” or other such useless links). You can manually delete all of this spam, which can literally take hours, and set up black lists and other filters. Even better, you can prevent people from using these scripts in the first place with CAPTCHA.
CAPTCHA requires a website visitor to type a set of characters displayed in a distorted image along with the rest of the web form. When the web form is submitted, the CAPTCHA is checked first. If the site visitor enters an invalid answer, they are directed back to the original form to try again. If the answer is correct, the web form is processed normally. Call us to ask about adding CAPTCHA to your web forms.
