ReCaptcha

We’ve been having some problems with spam lately so I’ll be adding a ReCaptcha system to the contact form on my contact page.
There may be some teething problems after I implement it but I’ll get those sorted as quickly as possible.

In other news, I won’t be needing any viagra, cialis, cheap and simple SEO or banks full of African royalty’s money for the foreseeable future!

New Site Design

Just a short post today. I’m currently in the process of re-designing my website, which is fun(!) although very time consuming.

I realised through Google Analytics that the way people are coming to and through my current site isn’t really the right way if I want to gain new clients. People are coming to my website and leaving pretty soon after. The new design will be more sleek and simple-looking but with a lot more, easily found information about current, past  and future projects and clients. I’ll also make it a lot easier to request a quote or hire me in general. This blog will also match the main website design a lot better than it does right now.

So, in short, the site will be;

  • More responsive to being viewed on different devices.
  • Simpler.
  • More informative about past clients and projects.
  • Overhauled SEO to make it easier to find.
  • More engaging to viewers
  • Easier to hire me, larger boxes and more info on contact page.
  • Less green. I’ve kind of gone off of green lately for some reason.

Wish me luck!
