Search Engine Optimization is all about getting your website higher up in the search results on search engines such as Google. The higher up the results you are the more traffic (and customers) you’re likely to get.
There are many aspects that go into achieving good SEO, and one of the most important is the copy (words) on your website. Focus on well written, keyword rich and appropriate content is the key.
Do you write the content for my site?
Yes, we do. We view the content on your site as one of the most important layers of SEO and want to ensure it is done right.

Not directly, but if you need someone to create your logo for you we have relationships with several graphic designers who specialize in logos and branding.
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your address on the internet. Typically, this would be something like www.yourbusinessname.com
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service that allows your website to be viewed on the Internet. It’s basically a computer housed in a data center that runs your website and email. After working with a variety of hosting providers, we have learned that the best comes from Burgess Computer. We have a close business relationship with them and find their customer service to be better than any other hosting company around.
