Secure, Responsive & Mobile Friendly
Responsive development is no longer merely option, it’s a necessity.
The importance of your website developed on a responsive framework, and the custom elements coded properly to work within this framework is beyond vital in order to have a successful digital web presence. The reasoning behind this logic is two-fold.
Every user who visits your site needs to be visually entertained and intrigued or they wont stay much longer then a second.
“Once your page loads, users form an opinion in .05 seconds.” –
If we were to take the desktop version of your website and merely shrink the same design to fit on a phone it would hardly be legible, much less visually pleasing. This is where responsive website development comes into play. With a properly developed website the content will adjust based on the width of the device it is being displayed on.

What exactly is ‘Responsive Design’?
2) Responsive for SEO
Mobile friendliness now plays a part in your search engine optimization strategy. As of April 21st, 2015, Google began penalizing websites that were not mobile friendly on the page ranks. These days, if someone on a tablet or mobile phone does a google search, only mobile friendly websites will filter into the search results. As less users get to your website via mobile devices your website will also incur a loss of desktop visitors as overall traffic decline also creates a negative effect on site weight in general.
40% of people will choose a different search result if the first is not mobile friendly.
Fully Secure Website Development
From well encrypted passwords to advanced security programs, we go to great lengths to make sure your website stays secure for the long haul. One often over looked element of security is the importance of knowing which WordPress plugins are safe for your website. We are big critics of plugins and will only utilize them if they are developed by reputable programmers and well maintained. Once your site goes live you will need to be certain that all elements within the site are checked for updates on a weekly basis. We can teach you how to do this or you may prefer to take advantage of our monthly security package program.
**Important update as of January 2017**
As of January 2017 Google Chrome, the majority leader in web browser usage (73% of the total market, according to W3Schools) will be giving websites with an SSL installed a boost on the page rankings and websites without the SSL will be given an unappealing red x in the url bar. If your website does not already have an SSL it will undoubtedly loose traffic from search engines and your bounce rate will increase.
