Search Engines love fresh content! And so do website users.
No matter what your website is for, you should always consider having a “news” page where you can include regular fresh updates, be it about events, promotions or new products or services.

Another good way to include fresh content is to have a blog. Keep it interesting and you’ll soon attract new readers and thus more people to your site.

If the search engine spiders know that you regularly update your site, they’ll call round more often to see what’s happening. This in turn can have a positive effect on your Search Engine Rating!

CMS on a budget

Filed under: Webspread Design Blog — admin @ 2:50 pm

We often get asked to design a small site but the client wants to be able to login and maintain it them selves.

This can seem daunting for client! There’s a smell of expense off the idea! But thanks to the wonders of wordpress, CMS (content management systems) are possible on a budget.

“But isn’t Wordpress for blog websites? I don’t want a blog!”…not always, is the answer. Wordpress sites don’t even have to include a blog.

So what do you get when you
have a site built on wordpress?
1. login panel that is secure
2. ability to easily update selected pages on your website
3. ability to upload new photos onto your site

Our sites built on Wordpress can still have a unique look and feel, we won’t just use an off the shelf template.

We’ll even give you a FREE lesson on how to maintain your website! All you have to do is ask : )

A Domain Name To Call Your Own

Filed under: Webspread Design Blog — admin @ 12:23 pm

Word Wide Web


A lot of new Directory Websites have arrived on the scene lately. Many of these directories offer businesses their own page within the site, providing them with a one page site in which to promote themselves. You may even be given a free domain name that is an extension of their domain.

While this can be a great way of attracting new customers, it’s use as a publicity or marketing tool for your business is very limited. A great way to boost the advantages of these type of pages is to still have a link to your own website on them. Any business that wants to have a professional online presence needs to purchase its own domain name. With prices from companies such as Blacknight.ie so low these days, there’s really never been a better time to get one!

When choosing your domain name, try to go for something short and catchy. An excellent tip is to try to include a keyword in your name, as this may help your site’s search engine ranking. If you are a registered Irish company, dealing only with Irish clients it is a good idea to go for a .ie domain name. In all other cases, a .com extension is the most popular, and and so easiest to remember (as apposed to asking your clients to remember that you are .biz or .tv or other uncommon extensions). There are however a couple of exceptions to this: government sites which should end with .gov, educational sites should end with .edu and non profit websites which should end in org.

If all this domain name business is new to you, we’re more than happy to help you find the right domain name for your site and purchase it for you!
