Who Do You Trust To Create Your Online Presence?

As the web design & development space becomes busier and more complex, so too do your options as a business. Propeller work across the full gamut of marketing - graphic design, web design, email marketing, social media, public relations and communications, but what we are perhaps best known for is professional web design & development. We've been in the business continuously since 2004 so we've seen a lot of change - the rise of SEO, social media, mobile and responsive design, accessibility and performant web design. Along the way we've seen so many different options and trends in web design come and go its enough to make your head spin. We've seen the rise of offshoring, software as a service (SAAS), 'free' and AI-driven websites, CSS and Javascript frameworks. You name it. We've seen it.

So, where do Propeller sit in the twinkling universe of the web design community?

So how can you do this to build your brand’s following?

The Deaf Society

Over the last four months, Propeller have given the Deaf Society website a major overhaul and redesign. Propeller first launched the Deaf Society's ExpressionEngine-based website in April 2013. Over the past couple of years the website has undergone many changes and incremental updates but the web has changed considerably, with mobile and tablet use now outstripping desktop visitors, Google's ranking algorithms pivoting towards quality content and speed and, with the introduction of the NDIS, the Deaf Society's content focus has shifted dramatically. It was time for some new clothes…

The Need For Speed

I feel the need. The need for speed!

Whilst its something we all notice when visiting and using websites, speed isnt usually something that clients attribute to SEO and page ranking. The reality is that in the mobile age speed is one of the most critical factors involved in where your website is likely to end up in Google's search algorithm.

Boost your Google ranking with HTTPS (SSL)

Google studies show that visitors do not consider the absence of a “secure” icon as a warning, even though they absolutely should! Which is why Google is taking the extra step to warn Chrome users (Google's proprietary web browser used by more than 55% of internet users) when they're about to enter their sensitive information into a website that is not secure.
