Secure, SEO, WordPress Blog
Starting at $200
You may wonder why there’s a fee for building a blog when you can create one for free yourself.
That’s because the blogs we build use Premium Themes and Premium Plugins that will make your blogs much more secure from hackers and will provide Search Engine Optimization (SEO) benefits.
Our blogs also user Server-Level security measures and come with SSL certificates as standard (if you host your site with us). This lets you use the https:// prefix in your web addresses and helps boost your site’s ranking in Google.
Starting in July 2018, the Chrome browser (the most popular in use) is now flagging web sites which use the http:// prefix in their web addresses as Not Secure in the browser’s address bar.
While this will now cause such sites to rank more poorly than they used to, a more important consideration is that seeing such a warning will undermine visitors’ and customers’ confidence in your brand.
That’s why it’s important that your site uses an SSL certificate, allowing it use the https:// prefix in web addresses and also making it more secure.
We build blogs on our own web servers which provide Server-Level security features along with an SSL certificate for blogs.
If you would prefer us to build your blog in your own web hosting account, please let us know when ordering.
Here’s a selection of some of the WordPress blogs we’ve created:
All you have to do once you get your blog is add content yourself; everything else is set up.
Need additional pages on your website? The first additional page will be a dedicated home page to advertise your business. Subsequent pages will be for additional content you’d like added to the site. One page per topic/product/service.
Each additional page is $25. When ordering, select the number of additional pages you want. We’ll be in touch after you order about the specifics for each page you require.
