I consider anything Active Discovery Designs mine and have an agreement about that, but I am no more associated with ActiveDiscovery, Inc., so I am looking under which name I will continue my services.

Please note I am not associated in any way anymore with ActiveDiscovery, Inc. and vice versa, but (of course) I will continue serving existing and new clients, for now as a freelance (full stack) web developer.

Contact details are still the same, so you can just go the contact page if you want to contact me.

Building a quality website

Well, I'm still busy with our own website and I'm continuously thinking how we could build this type of website at a reasonable price for our customers as more and more I'm realizing what a major task it is to build a website with all the products and/or services a company can offer. I think I spent 5 days alone now writing the text alone for this site. Of course I'm typing it straight in the code itself in the format I want it in, so it's not 'just making text', but even if the text were just provided by a customer it would still take quite some hours to convert it properly to the html needed for a quality website.

Of course we have done this many times for our customers, but I was never involved as close as I am now, at least not recently. Of course most companies would only remake their website every few years, not every year as we are doing now, but still, the process is more time consuming than I thought.

Reason I'm writing this here is of course because I want you to understand that to us a website is not just a 'copy and paste' process of existing text, but it is carefully thinking how to put what text where, what should be the build-up of the pages, what should be the page titles (did you know how important these are?) and later on finalizing the whole stuff by making it SEO friendly like putting the right keywords and description for each page. Next to this we're also working on the graphical design, in this case, as with most current websites, using an html 'template'.

So this whole exercise also brings me to the process of marketing and sales of especially our 'web services', from basic website to advanced framework website with many features. Well, enough for now I guess, but I'll certainly come back to it later on in another blog item.

I also promised to come back on the SEO stuff. This may be soon as I'm going to start on our SEO services page next.
