Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
websites that naturally rank well. I do this by building a structure website, that is fully compliant and to highest standards. Helping boost your SEO rankings further with rich snippets for reviews, products, events etc in the search results. This helps search engines better understand your content and stand out in search results.
Open Source Software & Commercially Purchased Themes/Plugins
gives you an off-the-shelf solution that can suits most small websites but it can sometimes be bloated with extra features that you don't need slowing things down needing a developer to try speeding up and customising. Also with they do need to be kept updated more regularly then a custom built software because any security bugs are usually publicised giving easy access to a hacker if your website is out dated.
