Mobile First Websites

Responsive web design simply means making websites that can adapt to the size of the visitor’s viewport. Our responsive website design is tailored to your company and your branding. Responsive websites eliminate the need for a mobile website, as they will respond to any device and display accordingly. We excel at making clean websites and we take pride in creating a look and feel for your online presence. Having a responsive website is an important part of your internet success.

At Sagentic Web Design, we build your website with the mobile phone in mind. In 2013, mobile phones made up just 16.2% of web traffic worldwide. That number had increased to over 53% in 2018. Our clients often get 60-70% mobile traffic on their websites according to our Google Analytics report for each website. This means that your website must look good on a mobile phone or the majority of your users will have a bad experience.

Your customers are increasingly using their phones and mobile devices to browse the web, and Google deems it necessary in order to have good search engine positioning. Your website needs to be responsive or it will not show up in the search engines and your users will avoid it. On April 21, 2015, Google released a significant new mobile-friendly ranking algorithm that’s designed to give a boost to mobile-friendly pages in Google’s mobile search results.

SSL Certificates

SSL stands for ‘Secure Sockets Layer,’ and when a website has one installed, all data passed between web browsers and servers remains private and encrypted. SSL is a standard security protocol which establishes encrypted links between a web server and a browser, thereby ensuring that all communication that happens between a web server and browser(s) remains encrypted and hence private.

Google now requires SSL Certificates in order to be ranked higher in search engines and especially if your users are transmitting data to you. As of July 2018, Google SSL requirements were enforced by flagging sites without SSL as unsafe in Chrome.  For the last few years, Google has been a strong advocate of SSL-secured websites. This goes way back to 2014 when it was decided that the search giant will rank secure HTTPS websites over the less secure HTTP ones. Of course, websites do not want to be branded with a mark that makes them look like they aren't secure.

Custom Content Management System

Content Management Systems (CMS) are user-friendly platforms that allow non-technical personnel to edit data and publish information on a website without learning the inner workings of programming. While most business owners would prefer to change their own content, they aren't comfortable with having to design any aspect of their website.

The most popular Content Management Systems are security nightmares and aren't easily adaptable for every type of website without using paid plugins (also security nightmares) and offer poor search engine indexing without a lot of tweaks and fixes. At Sagentic Web Design, we stay away from insecure platforms such as Wordpress or Joomla and put our clients in an easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS). Our CMS is easy to use and very powerful. It requires little-to-no training for most users.

We don't design websites around the platform - we design the platform around the website! 

With a custom content management solution from Sagentic Web Design, the system's workflow, design and usability can be tailored to any business or department's specific needs. You'll never have to worry about updates or security as we are always improving the software, adding features, and looking for exploits. Growing businesses don't always have the resources or time required to employ entire IT departments or spend valuable time training employees in website design.

Sagentic Web Design provides a turn-key Content Management System (CMS) solution for your website by providing a user-friendly interface that allows even non-technical staff to understand and use the system to make updates.

Websites Aren't "Design & Done"

Just building a website that simply exists on the internet isn’t enough. Having a fully-managed website from Sagentic means the job isn't done after the new website is published.  How will your audience find your site? Do they even know it exists? You have to let people know your site is live and make it easy for them to find. What happens when search engines change the rules? Did you know that Google rolls out an average of 500 to 600 changes to its search algorithms each year? 

In 2018 alone, Google reported an incredible 3,234 updates to it's search algorithms — an average of almost 9 per day, and more than 8 times the number of updates in 2009. While most of these changes are minor, Google occasionally rolls out a major search algorithmic update (such as Panda, Penguin, and BERT) that affects search results in significant ways. Do you have time to keep up with that? We do!

Measuring Your Web Traffic

Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. Google Analytics is the most comprehensive tracking tool available on the market. It gives you detailed data about your website visitors and the actions they take on your site. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics records the actions and the data is reported using the Google Analytics Dashboards.

At Sagentic Web Design, we'll set up Google Analytics for your website and monitor the traffic you are receiving. Often times, we'll make adjustments based on what we see. We can also go over any of the analytics with you and help you interpret the results. Just a few of the questions you can answer with Google Analytics are:

  • How many people visit my website?
  • Where do my website visitors live?
  • What websites send traffic to my website?
  • Which pages on my website are the most popular?

Google Analytics can also provide demographics and interests data that provides information about the age and gender of your users, along with the interests they express through their online travel and purchasing activities.

You can create multiple dashboards, each of which can contain multiple widgets that show the data you want to see and how you want to see it. We can create customized reports for you that can be delivered as frequently as you would like to see them. The ways in which you can measure your traffic seem endless with Google Analytics, but Sagentic Web Design can show you what will be most important to you and how you should look at it.
