Web Design and why it matters
Form versus functionality - Does it really matter? Yes is the answer and read on to find out why.

A different approach to SEO
Link Building is often misunderstood and is usually associated with a 'links' page - an agreement you have made to have a link to another website if they in turn link back to you. This ultimately takes people away from your site and actually does NOTHING for improving search engine ranking. Expert link building is totally different and here in-lies the problem with getting people to think outside the box with SEO and utilise other options.

SEO Basics
SEO is the process of reviving a website to encourage a high page rank within a specific keyword search. There are many articles all offering a multitude of theories on what is most important, but we reckon that a good all round approach works best.
