SRQPressureWasher I think websites should start with simple navigation then have quality pictures and content to draw people in. One of the main mistakes I see is people making potential customers search for a way to contact them. If customers have to search for a contact form or phone number they will probably just head back to google and try someone else. Even though they aren't pretty, the more simple forms I put on my website the higher my conversion. Good luck all.

Many websites use the Wordpress platform because you can use many SEO plugins like SEO Ultimate and W3 Total Cache that makes the site run faster. Calls of actions are important too and so is color.

There's many pages on this topic and worth checking out. You can always hire someone else to do this work for you. Keep you ROI under consideration.

Bunga I probably sound like a broken record, but a serious issue I see is most web developers underplay the phone number.

I have a degree in Marketing and I apply my training quite often in my companies. One thing that many people miss on, especially in commercial cleaning businesses is to make sure that your phone number is prevalent on your web pages. After all, the best thing that can happen is for a potential client to call you to ask for a quote. So make it easy for that client to dial your number!

1) Have your phone number on your header.
2) Have a click-2-dial button (for mobile).
3) Make sure that your phone number is not so small that it can't be read on a mobile phone.

If this fix increases your phone call count by 20% - I think you'll love it!

Also I hate Flash. If a website has Flash I just log out!
Totally agree on the Adobe Flash. Terrible thing to do to your visitors!

M Kal It just helps when Google reads your website. They are looking for good authoritative content when they rank sites. It helps to have that much content on the first page.

so, our homepage must at least 1000 words? what will happen if we didn't put at least 1000 words at the first page? I am a newcomer and don't understand about this "authoritative cleaning site"

I think you are thinking of frames, tables won't affect a search engine bot's ability to crawl your site. Also, most bots can now navigate through frames as well but I still avoid using them, there are safer options.

You should always focus on good and attractive website design to engage the customers and the most important and basic thing is to have an easy navigation.
