Frequently Asked Questions
Each website is different and until we know more about what you are after, it really is impossible to give a figure. We’d need to discuss your requirements in more detail before we can give you a quote. Contact us on 01994 484430 for a friendly chat about your specific requirements.
This is even more difficult to answer than the previous question about website design costs. If you are just having an SEO Setup performed then we will give you an estimate once we’ve discussed your requirements. We'd then discuss any other findings with you once we were working on the website. For ongoing work, we start most clients on a budget to suit their needs and if this brings the desired rewards then the budget can be increased. Please note that we do not offer off-page SEO or PR services. See our SEO page for more information or contact us for a friendly chat about your specific requirements.
There are two budgets required for Google Adwords – our own fee and Google’s fee. Ours will be much less than Google’s! Prices depend on the size of your business & Adwords campaigns. Regarding Adwords costs, it really is ‘how long is a piece of string?’. We will discuss a starting budget with you & then consider increasing it once it has settled down & its performance has been analysed. However, enough budget is needed in order to gather performance data so a few quid/day isn’t really going to cut it in most instances. Contact us for a friendly chat about your specific requirements.
We can help you with that! It may be useful to look at your competitors & let us know of any websites you like, or any features on them that you like. If you really haven’t got a clue though you can just give us a free rein & we’ll come up with some ideas for you. Contact us for a friendly chat about your website design project.
This depends on our workload & the size & complexity of the website. It might also be dependent on any data that you may be supplying, such as content, images, access to domain names, etc. We will discuss the timescale with you when going through your website design requirements. Contact us for a friendly chat about your website design.
Nearly all our websites are built on WordPress which has a complete content managing system, so yes, you could manage your own website once we've built it. However, you would need to be competent with computers and WordPress. WordPress must be kept up-to-date with technical & security updates which can involve correcting any resulting issues with the website. We cannot take any responsibility for any issues that occur should any person other than With Hindsite staff be amending/updating the website, or if you are not paying With Hindsite for monthly maintenance.
This is up to Google, but there are things that can be done to speed the process up. We will do our bit to prompt Google to crawl the website. Getting links to the website on social media, news releases, etc. can also really help speed things up (reputable linking sites only). If you want to appear high on Google search results more quickly you could consider Google Adwords.
Whether it be a new website or SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) work, it WILL TAKE TIME for Google to recognise & trust the changes. It will then take more time for you to slowly climb the page positions. In our opinion, unless you are in an incredibly niche market or are going to be headline news, anyone saying they can get you to position 1 instantly is likely using ‘black hat’ techniques which could get you struck off Google. You are competing against other companies who probably also have SEO campaigns so you need to continuously work hard over several sectors to prove to the viewer & Google that you are better than the rest. If you want to appear at the top of the search results more quickly you could consider Google Adwords.
Yes, if we host & maintain the website for you, we charge a monthly fee. This includes hosting, regular backups & technical updates. For the basic package, most of our websites have a maintenance fee of £20/month. Some of our one-page websites are just £10/month, where as our larger websites are a bit more. You can also choose to include additional website work such as content changes, etc. We’d need to discuss your requirements in more detail before we can give you a quote. Contact us on 01994 484430 for a friendly chat about your specific requirements.
SEO stands for ‘Search Engine Optimisation’. This basically means optimising your website for search engines such as Google. These days, however, it means much more than just optimising your actual website. There are so many areas that affect your website ranking. Onpage factors can include optimisation of content, coding, metatags, images & speed. Offpage areas include blogs, backlinking & social networking. Contact us for a friendly chat about your SEO requirements.
Yes – absolutely. We have worked with many Webmasters to optimise their websites.
For monthly plans, we only ask that you give us 30 days notice. However, we strongly advise that you continue your plan for at least six months. It takes time for any efforts to be recognised by Google & it needs to be an increase of genuine traffic that Google can trust.
No, most of our clients speak to us on the phone & over email. We have found it can be much quicker this way, saving us both time & your budget!
Yes - we are ICO registered & GDPR compliant. We take data protection & security very seriously. Please contact us if you would like to discuss this in more detail.
