Question markFrequently asked questions

How effective is a website for small businesses?

A well-designed and optimised website provides a major boost to your business, showcasing your services and achievements, and importantly, telling your potential customers how to find and contact you.

A quality website is a valuable asset that creates leads and drives the right customers to your business. With most services researched online these days, having a virtual shopfront online is an essential requirement.

Compared to traditional marketing, a good website brings a better return on your investment in the long run than short-term advertising in print media or radio.

What is SEO website design?

SEO is an acronym that stands for Search Engine Optimisation. SEO website design is a mix of content and technical website optimisations to improve your website’s search engine ranking.

In short, website SEO means finding the best words your customers would type to Google to find your business. Once you find the perfect keyword phrases for your business, you need to optimise the content of your site – texts, images, headings – to rank your site in the search results for those terms.

Since Google does not like slow sites or sites that are not readable on mobile either, you also need to optimise your site for speed – to meet the Google core vitals – and design them to be mobile responsive – so your website folds nicely on small screens.

What is domain registration?

Domain registration is the act of reserving an internet domain name through an authorised domain registrar. The domain name is a unique, memorable name – or address – for your website on the internet. Domain registrations are usually purchased for one year. Once you register an available domain name that you like, it will remain yours, as long as you keep renewing the registration.

For small businesses in Australia, the most common domains are either or the .au extension. You will need to provide an Australian Business Number to be eligible to register an Australian domain name.

When will my website appear on Google?

It usually takes several months for a new website to start ranking in Google search results. As part of all our website design and build packages, we will register your site with Google. That means that your website will get crawled and indexed as soon as possible, usually within a few days to two weeks.

However, ranking your new business website to reach the front pages in local Google search results usually takes three to six months – that is for the local searches by customers in Canberra looking to find your small business website. To rank high in Australia-wide search results will take even longer – usually twelve to eighteen months.
