|Web Design Myths
||Web Myths Debunked
|'Free to leave'
A CMS is used by a web company to build and update content on a website. Selecting the right CMS is critical as you can't change it without rebuilding your website.
| Avoid lock in
Select a CMS that is secure, scalable, and easy to use. Be sure to use a CMS that does NOT lock you into a web company. Finally, use a specialist ecommerce CMS for an online webstore.
|'We're SEO experts'
Many website redesigns LOSE visits from search as hundreds of SEO factors are ignored during a web design. Your web company needs a thorough understanding of how to integrate SEO into your new website, or it will fail.
|Check SEO scope
Review the web companies portfolio and benchmark a few websites against current Google SEO Guidelines. Also clarify what the web company means by 'we will SEO your new website'; chances are it means you'll end up doing the actual SEO yourself.
|'We'll build a secure website'
Thousands of websites get hacked daily. A hacked website is costly to fix and may get removed from the SEO rankings. Some web CMS, especially the cheaper ones, are more vulnerable to being hacked.
|Research security & hosting
Find out what CMS your website development company is proposing, then Google 'CMS name + security issues' to research if that CMS has security vulnerabilities. Note: your website hosting package also impacts security and website speed.
|'Build it and they will come'
Website design is sold as a project rather than a program of specialist services. Even updating content requires specialist ongoing effort as it impacts your design, web marketing activity and SEO rankings.
|Get trained in the basics
Find out from your website company if they offer training courses that empower you to manage your website or to manage others. If they offer web services retainer packages then clarify what is included in the contract and the hourly rate.
|'We'll use our account'
A common mistake is to allow your web company to setup your analytics and web marketing systems under their umbrella account. This means you lose your data history if you leave!
|Retain data & IP ownership
Ask your web services company to set up your analytics and web marketing systems under an account that you control. That way you keep your data history if you leave. Also clarify who owns the IP of your site.
