Web Design & Development

Before we start building your website, before we even start thinking about the design and how it’s going to look, our specialist team working from offices near York, put real thought into your goals and what it is you are trying to achieve from your new website, whether it be increased sales, increased enquiries or brand awareness.

User journey and accessibility are paramount, content is king and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is crucial. Once these things have been mapped out and a structure is in place, we then bring it all to life with design visuals.

After taking an initial brief, we spend the time understanding your business, understanding your customers (and websites audience) to enable us to put the foundations in place for a website that will make an invaluable difference and provide the results you need.

Content Management System

We use WordPress for small to medium website builds, we love it, and here’s why…

Because the technology is so simple, time spent on formatting is greatly reduced. WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, etc. on a regular basis is a breeze and can be done quickly.

WordPress is browser-based. You can login from any internet connected computer and manage your site.

The code behind WordPress is very clean and simple, making it easy for search engines to read and index a site’s content.

With WordPress, you have control of nearly every aspect of your site and can easily make those simple updates with minimum experience, and our team based near York will ensure you’re fully in control.

Bespoke Website Build

There are times, especially for larger and more complex websites, with functionality that’s out of the ordinary, when WordPress isn’t enough. That’s not a problem for Mercury Web Design based near York.

We can build bespoke websites from the ground up. Our web developers are fully fluent in PHP. PHP is a cutting edge programming language, with over 300 million websites are built with this technology making it the most widely used and tested on the internet.

Fully Responsive

Did you know that Google has now included mobile responsive sites as part of their search engine ranking criteria? In a nut-shell this means that if your website isn’t responsive and optimised for mobile and tablets, Google will mark down your website, which means you won’t appear as high in the rankings as websites that are responsive.

Aside from this, on average 40% of UK internet traffic derives from handheld devices, and this figure is rising dramatically year on year.

Can you afford not to have your website optimised for this percentage of your users? Our team of industry experts near York, work to ensure all our websites are now fully responsive.
