FAQ's

We have a compiled list of our frequently asked questions below. If you have any further questions or queries about our services from Gold Coast to Byron Bay, you can contact us with your enquiry here.

Information architecture is the relationship of how all the different pages of a website are related to each other. This is communicated visually through a sitemap. Here is an example of a sitemap: http://sitemaps.thewpdevshop.com/proctormajor

An interactive prototype is a black and white version of your website that is designed to prove the functionality and features as they will work in the browser. No design elements are applied at this stage as the prototype is just built to allow all parties to make final decisions on the functionality.

WordPress is open source content management software and currently powers around 25% of all websites on the Internet. The project is contributed by tens of thousands of developers all over the world and is growing from strength to strength. WordPress allows us to develop flexible and customisable websites to modern standards and observes web design and development best practices. Furthermore the community of web developers that use WordPress reaches far and wide and allows us to tap in to this collective intelligence and bring that wealth of experience to your project in Gold Coast and other areas.

Your website needs to be hosted by a hosting company that specialises in WordPress hosting. There are many companies that do this. WP Engine, Siteground, Pagely and Pantheon are just a few who specialise in this area. We are more than happy to make a personal recommendation should you require one.

Provided you subscribe to one of our ongoing website care plans, we will be your first point of call in Gold Coast and Byron Bay if something goes wrong with your website or web design. We will determine whether the issue in web design or other areas is something the hosting company needs to fix, if it is covered by your website care plan. We will provide training and video tutorials to assist you in using your website once it is launched.

Once your website is launched, we will provide 30 days of support to make sure any bugs in the web design have been ironed out and that you are confident using your new website. After this you will need to subscribe to one of our ongoing website care plans to make sure your website is looked after and maintained. These website care plans include updating your software, regular backups, security checks, web design functionality and making sure your website is online and open for business 24/7/365 in Gold Coast and surroundings. More information on our website care plans is available upon request.

The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrase people are using to find your website and the number of other websites that are also available for those search phrases. Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however there are a number of factors that can improve your chances. Building your website on WordPress is a good start as WordPress has some great Search Engine Optimisation fundamentals built-in. Along with the best web design, creating unique and interesting content on a regular basis for your website is also critical to increase your visibility amongst search engines and Gold Coast audiences. Launching your website and then forgetting about it is a surefire way to get lost amongst the noise. We are happy to talk to more about your search engine strategy if we haven’t already.

We will install Google analytics software on your new website and show you how to log into your Google analytics account where you can see a wide range of statistics about your website including number of visits, page views than the amount of time people are spending on your website.

Whilst we like to be flexible and responsive to your needs, we also like to deliver what we promise within the time frames and budgets we have allowed. If you ask us to add new features to your website or web design while we are building it, will most likely ask why? If we all agree that your new request about web design or development will help us achieve our objectives then we will be more than happy to oblige. If your new feature is something you would like to add to your website but is not directly tied to your original objectives then we will suggest scheduling it for a second iteration of the website once it has been launched. This will require a new proposal.
