Website Management

Lakeland Web Design / Think Graphics

We also manage a number of websites for clients who for one reason or another have lost their original web designer. In some ways it can be more of a challenge taking on this kind of work as every designer works differently and you have to find your way around their system. Also, we may not have access to all the files that were originally used to create the site, as it's not usual to upload these working files to the web space.

Customer Feedback

Jennie has worked wonders with SEO and general updating work on two of our websites for holiday accommodation, Hartsop Hall Cottages and High Borrans Lodges, which has yielded an improvement in traffic to the sites. She works fast, efficiently and can explain things in layman's terms, a huge bonus! Based on our experience to date, we are shortly asking her to do a complete redesign of our B & B website.

This local client came to us when they lost their original designer, who had built three websites for them some time ago. They have been managing simple updates to their website using Adobe Contribute, but needed help with certain updates that were technologically too challenging.

They also they requested we review the site optimisation to see if we could improve their positions on the search engines. For their Windermere Lodges site they were only coming up in the search engine results for "windermere lodges".

The Hartsop Hall site, with its more competitive key words, could only be found under "holiday cottages patterdale" at position 18.

As both sites were mature and had been indexed for several years, we felt that they would benefit from a re-optimisation so we went through both sites carefully to add key words in strategic places and generally improve the content.

Just over a week later the Windermere Lodges site started to appear for more generic searches such as "holiday lodges lake district" (position 25). We were also getting results on searches for "cabins" and "chalets" both for the Lake District and more localised.

As was to be expected, the holiday cottages site was much more competitive in terms of key words, but we still managed to get them on the map for the extremely competitive terms "lake district cottages" and "lake district self catering". Over the last year and following the recent Google changes, these positions have improved even further and when last checked the site was at positions 51-53 for these terms. We have also got them reasonably good positions on localised searches for Ullswater and Ambleside.

Customer Feedback

Jennie was a complete star! When my site was hacked she sorted it out and soon had my web site in operation again. I then asked her to improve the appearance of my web site. I was absolutely delighted with the improvements she made. She also optimised the pages on my site, which is now more prominent in web searches.

Lorraine, Rains Farm Holidays

This client's website was designed by a large company, but unfortunately it was hacked on a couple of occasions.

The site had been built with an older version of Joomla, the same CMS that we use for our clients.

We rebuilt the site from scratch in the latest version of Joomla to eliminate all contaminated files and then moved the domain name and hosting to another provider.

At the request of the client we made some improvements to the content of the site to make it easier to navigate and read.

Also, since the site was not performing very well on the search engines, we worked through the site to optimise it for the search engines.

UPDATE:

We have now redesigned this website for the client.
