We take great care when we develop our websites, to ensure that your business has every possible chance of a good ranking for both local and nationwide searches.
With the ever increasing use of smartphones, it goes without saying that every website we develop is responsive. What is a responsive website? In a nutshell, it means that a website is responsive to the users platform. So if a user was to access your website on their smartphone or tablet, the website would reformat itself to be useable and accessible for that user on their chosen device.
All the websites that we have developed in the past three years are responsive and mobile friendly. This should be a standard procedure with any new website being built in todays market. So if you’re looking for web development Milton keynes, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.

Our Web Development Process
The first phase of any web project is actually the research undertaken to understand your business, its brand and its target audience. From there we move on to initial concepts and these take place during the web design phase.
After the web design phase, it’s time to develop the website. In our opinion, a responsive website should be standard procedure. You can read about what a responsive website is in our news item – What Is a Responsive Website?. We treat our web development process with as much care and attention as we do with our web design process.
Why do we take care? Put it this way, if you went to purchase a new car, you’d expect it run effortlessly, right? Of course. But just because a website looks great from the outside looking in, it’s what lurks behind the scenes that could cause long term damage. For example, how a website is structured within the coding can impact massively on your search engine results (SEO). Google appreciates nothing better than good structure and even better and relevant content.
So if content is King, then the cogs behind the website is sitting pretty right beside it on that website throne! Here in Milton Keynes, westfourstreet treat every single web design and development project the same. Regardless of project size or whatever prestige the client holds. We are only as good as our last website, so it’s of utmost importance to us that no shortcuts are taken and every consideration is taken to deliver not only a beautiful looking responsive website, but that it outperforms the other sites on the internet highway!

Content Management Systems
Whether or not you’re familiar with what a Content Management System (CMS) is or indeed does, it’s something that you will most likely want to consider for your website.
In a nutshell, a CMS is an online system used to manage content found on a website. It allows you to easily add or update page content, images, menus – pretty much everything!
What this gives to you is complete control over your website content, without the need of a web developer or designer to make changes. So from a business sense, it makes perfect sense. No more waiting for changes or amends to be made.
We offer a wide variety of tried, tested and very well respected Content Management Systems. Each one of these can be demonstrated to you prior to any web development taking place. Allowing you the opportunity to see which one you feel comfortable with which one provides you with what you need going forward. Full training is provided at no extra cost and our on-going support will ensure that you’ll never have to chase for updates ever again.
