Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization(SEO) means the website is designed to show up as high as possible on the list of results from a search engine such as Google, Yahoo, or Bing. The most effective methods is a highly debated topic. We believe one of the best method of SEO is to provide informative and original content on your pages. All of our websites are designed with this in mind. We employ other methods as well such search engine listings and site maps. Part of the SEO ensures your site is a local website which simple means your website will show up higher in search results when your service area is specified in the search such as flowers in meadville pa.

Responsive Design
Example of a responsive design

The age of mobile computing has demanded a change in design concept known as responsive design. Responsive design simply put means a webpage display equally well when viewed on a desktop computer, tablet, or Smartphone. All of our websites are designed to be responsive so your customers can access your site while at their home or office, or while on the go.

The first step in designing a website is to determine the type of site it will be. Will the site be used as a business card such as a contractor’s website might use to be found by his customers and initiate contact? Will it be used to directly sell a product? Will the site be used to disseminate information such as a newspaper? Or maybe you need a site to publicize your charitable organization. Or it could be a combination such as providing information and selling a product. Regardless of the type Tom’s Computer Service can provide you with a solution.

Control Panel

After you determine the type of website you need you will need to decide the level of participation you intend to have. The first thing to remember with this step is the website belongs to you. Most of our websites utilize the popular content management system called Joomla. Joomla’s control panel makes it easy for the average computer user to add, update, or delete content with very little training. Or if you prefer we can handle the updates and changes for you.

As previously mentioned it is your website and where you host it is your decision. We provide hosting service but if for some reason you would rather use a different host you have that option. Our hosting service has a 99.9% uptime rating meaning your website is available 99.9% of the time.

We also offer custom web application. An example of a web application is the Employment Application used by Crawford County Care Center. The Employment Application has a frontend that allows user to input their information. A CCCC representative has login credentials to access the information in the form of a pdf file to be printed/saved.

Now that you have a website there are a number of ways to promote it both paid and free. One of the most effective free methods is social media. Among the them the first you should consider is Facebook. We recommend establishing a Facebook presence. If you would like a Facebook page but would rather have someone else handle it for you we can help you with that too.
