At SearchX, we design great looking sites but at the same time also design websites which are crawlable and ranked well as well. Design of the website should also be compatible to the latest techno devices. If you have a great looking site but not compatible to latest techno devices, SEO ranks suffer.
While creating great looking sites at Searchx, our designers understand the overall idea and the target audience for your organisation. Content is the key on ranking of the websites. While the content is written the keyword research is being done and proper content is built using the keywords in proper density for great SEO. If SEO has been incorporated while designing the site, less time and money will be spent to achieve ranks and site will start getting indexed for SEO once the website is live. Proper Call to Action elements are to be introduced while website designs in order to complement good SEO resulting in better bounce rate.
On a whole the key elements of successful SEO start with design of the website ranging to content on the website and ending with good on page and off page SEO.
