SEO for responsive websites

Having a responsive website, one that works on mobiles, tablets and PC’s has fast become an essential rather than desirable requirement for any website.

We all understand how a responsive site looks and works on different platforms but the real question we should be asking is: ‘Is SEO better on a responsive website?’ After all, a site that isn’t visible really isn’t going to do your business any good at all. Continue reading…

SEO, Responsive Web Design and Google updates – August 2015

At Build14me we like to keep up to date with all of the things that matter or should matter to people who have websites. We scour the internet daily and when we find an interesting article we post links on @build14me (https://twitter.com/Build14me) Every month we put together a complete synopsis of all the articles we have read – so you don’t need to miss a great feature just because you missed a tweet.
And don’t forget if you have written or seen an article you think we should re-tweet – then send the details to [email protected] and if we think our followers and customers would find it useful we are more than happy to feature it.

Tips for choosing the best web design company

Tips for choosing the best web design company

Here we have 28 tips for choosing the best ever web design company

Well OK 28 tips to help you choose the best ever web design company does seem a bit ludicrous but to be fair – reading tips from a web design company about how to choose the best web design company is a wee bit daft..

So our tips are the ‘highlight’ tips taken from a range of online tips for selecting the best web design company. To find these we simply put how to select a web design company into google hiding our private results.

We have then selected a few grand ideas from each of these sites and made our very own (nearly) tips for helping you choose the best ever web design company… and by the way Build14Me builds pretty good websites too.

Building websites for Woodingdean

Building Websites for Woodingdean.

At Build14Me we are right proud to be part of our local community. We are based in Woodingdean which Wikepedia (link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodingdean) describes as being ‘an eastern suburb of the city of Brighton and Hove East Sussex, separated from the main part of the city by downland and the Brighton Racecourse’.

Woodingdean has a population of around 10,000 people and a pretty thriving business community. We are based on Warren Road which seems to act as a thoroughfare taking commuters, holiday makers and schools traffic from (East) Brighton towards the A27 and Lewes, London and Worthing. There are a number of businesses along our ‘stretch’ including a mobility shop, a newsagent, a burger bar, a couple of estate agents, a t-shirt embroidery business, Johny’s Wares (link http://www.johnyswares.co.uk/), Paws with a cause (link http://pawswithacause.co.uk/) a hairdresser, a funeral parlour, Woodingdean café (link http://www.woodingdeancafe.co.uk/), a blind shop, a carpet shop and the obligatory Tesco Express and local pub. And just a street or so away there is property maintenance company NP Dechaine (link http://npdechaineltd.co.uk//). Oak Cottage Nursery is opposite (on the South side of Warren Road) (link http://oakcottagenursery.org///)
