Cirenwebdesign is now located in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, UK.
In the past I have worked on the websites of important businesses like Du Pont and The Tate. However I much prefer having my own local clients whom I can look after long term in a much more involved way. I incorporate websites into an overall marketing strategy, and take an holistic approach to social media, which is becoming a more and more important part of any marketing strategy. I have been self employed for the last 20 years.
I write code by hand, and while some businesses have started using onine site builders like Wordpress and Wix, there is no way that these are going to lead to high ranking in the Google Search Engine Results (SERPS). Websites are not print ads - there is no-one at Google going around looking at sites and boosting their rankings on the basis of how they look. What the Googlebot inspects and ranks is the code behind your site. The online site builders are hopeless at producing clean code and will be marked down accordingly. As I know how to code, my sites are clean and good performers. Of course everything I do is checked on multiple operating systems in multiple browsers and on phones, tablets and desktop PCs and Macs.
I am taking a much greater interest in YouTube these days, which can be an important part of your social media marketing strategy. My YouTube channel is here.
Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Huge news for website owners is that Google has tweaked its alograthim once again, and now how mobile friendly your site is is taken into account in the SERPS, the order in which search results are presented. The Web Design technique for producing websites that look good on all devices is called Responsive Design.
Here's a YouTube video I made explaining Responsive Design and why your site needs it. 7mins 37secs.
