When a one-page website is enough – NEVER!

Whether you’re a start-up, micro or small business, if a marketing agency tells you that you could get away with having a one-page website and SEO isn’t worth investing in – they’re talking rubbish.

It doesn’t matter about your company size, Google doesn’t care.  But give this search engine just one page and it deliver a be thumbs down when it comes to your rankings.

When we meet businesses to talk website design, our typical advice will include:

  • Choose a WordPress website, rather than a bespoke CMS or something more technical such as Joomla because it will give you more flexibility and control, and mean you’re not tied to one development company
  • Have at least 10 pages
  • Each of your services or products should have its own page
  • Include a blog and add new content on a regular basis – sharing via social
  • Make sure you install an SEO plugin such as Yoast
  • Develop a list of the top 10-15 keyword phrases that your customers would use to find a company like yours
  • Allocate each of these words to a website page, using your keyword and associated words within the content and back-end SEO plugin
  • Find out what the on-going web costs will be. From maintenance, to website hosting and amendment charges. Make sure you have no hidden financial surprises when you’re website is complete.
