Web Site Management

Designing a website is only the first step on the journey to a successful website. To ensure that your website continues to attract customers you must continually maintain it to ensure it is working correctly and still attracting customers. This is where we come in. To allow you to concentrate on your core business we take care of the web site maintenance for you. We continuously monitor the site for broken links, usability issues, visitor numbers, search engine availability and much more.

All our website's receive a monthly web analysis report with detailed recommendations to ensure your website is completely up to date and still attracting customers.

Hosting & Domain Registration

Your website has to sit on a server somewhere which as accessible via the Internet. Design Geckos provides a complete service and can supply and manage your domain and web hosting. We provide secure, reliable and scalable hosting server solutions for businesses of all sizes.

Domain names are like business addresses and need to be registered to allow you to use them, and once registered no one else can use them. The most popular domain names in the UK Internet community are the UK domain names (.co.uk) and the international domain names (.com).

You can register as many domain as you need (trading names, product names or generic names) and have all the domains you register ‘point’ to the same or different web sites as you choose, and have email addresses at any or all domains.

Registering a suitable domain name will provide you with a unique identifier for your company and can have a strong impact on the perceived size, image and prestige of your business.

All our website's come with a free .co.uk or .com domain of your choice (depending on availability) and 10 email accounts.

Please contact us for guidance on domain name choice as we have many years experience and can steer you clear of many of the pitfalls.

Search Engine Optimization

Keyword marketing and website optimization can achieve high search engine rankings for both start-up and mature website's, but having technologies that support optimization efforts is crucial. The area of content management often presents the greatest barriers to business owners that want to improve the performance of their website's in search engines.

  • Publishing technology - content management must facilitate the creation and promotion of keyword-rich text
  • Content optimization - web pages need to function on many levels, including usability and disability compliance
  • Coding standards - optimization relies on technology producing ‘best practice' page delivery and code

Design Gecko's website optimization services focus on making content compelling for users and accessible to search engines. But visibility is just the first step. Design Geckos also advises on ways to improve sites sales processes. Providing incentives for potential customers to make contact and improving conversion rates are effective ways to achieve a high return on marketing investment. Design Geckos can also help to identify and implement marketing technologies that support optimization from content management to campaign set-up and performance monitoring, Design Geckos can optimize your business to help it achieve dominance in its online market niche.

Marketing & Advertising

Design Geckos provide tailored Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM) programs to give your website as a high a position as possible on the major search engines, and to maximize the chance of real customers clicking through to your website.

A lot is written about search engine optimization about changes to the search engine algorithms and the latest "tricks" for a high ranking. Our approach is simple - we focus on giving the search engines and your customers what they want, and not chasing the latest technique that will soon be penalized or ignored by the engines. We help our clients develop sustainable website's that attract quality traffic, not sites that last five minutes.

We focus on helping clients develop their website's so that every page is accessible to the search engines, and ensure that every page is presented in a way that is both technically correct and optimized to give the search engines and your customers what they want - a well presented, easy to read website with optimized content and code. After all, that is what search engine algorithms try to find for their users.

We also provide advice on developing content to match the way people use search engines, to help attract additional visitors.
