At Pale September, I have chosen to work with WordPress.com websites .
This is because I like the ease, security and peace of mind that this affords for both my clients and myself .
I also want any websites I create to be accessible to all and using WordPress.com means I can be assured accessibility has been taken into consideration.
I can be assured of providing you with a robust website where internet security, back-up of webpages and the future proofing of your site for devices or web browsers not yet developed is all taken care of by the Happiness Engineers at WordPress.com.
As all software updates are done automatically by WordPress.com and I will be using templates that have already been written by professional designers, it is a very cost efficient way of having a WordPress website/website.
You will own and have complete control at all times of your domain name, email account and website.
WordPress.com websites are very search friendly by default. I will employ the following techniques to improve ranking within the major search engines:
- Pertinent titles and headings for pages, paragraphs and images
- Proper use of text formatting
- Develop the website with accessibility guidelines in mind
- Give advice on key words
- Implementation of Google’s Webmaster tools where appropriate
WordPress.com already handles all of the technical aspects of SEO.
The majority of my web projects are built on WordPress.com. For clients interested in e-commerce, I design for Big Cartel. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have a specific e-commerce platform in mind, as it may be an option.
I can also assist and advise with many other aspects of your online presence including mailing lists and setting up domain names and email accounts.
