Nearly half of all web traffic now comes from mobile devices, making it an absolute necessity that your website be mobile compatible. Fortunately, it will be — every website built by PennyWebs is fully responsive right out of the box! The term “mobile responsiveness” simply means that your website will automatically scale itself to fit on any size screen, whether it’s a smartphone or a widescreen desktop monitor.
Speed, Security, & Reliability
We build websites using WordPress, a robust and open source software that is constantly being upgraded and improved by a talented team of volunteer developers. Performance improvements, new features and security fixes are added regularly and rolled out via the automatic update system at no cost whatsoever to you. This is a huge asset, as it means your website won’t be frozen in time running on outdated software.
User Friendly & Easy to Edit
WordPress is well-known in the web design market for being easy to learn and use. The Microsoft Word-style visual editor makes it a snap to edit & format text, insert hyerlinks, and embed images, galleries and YouTube videos into your pages. Additionally, the websites built by PennyWebs give you easy access to:
- Updating your logo image & tagline
- Adding & removing pages from navigation menus
- Adding new pages & posts
- Uploading & resizing images
- Editing content in sidebars
- Updating your footer text & copyright information
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Small behind-the-scenes adjustments can help your website rank higher for relevant keywords in search engines like Google. We use and recommend the WordPress SEO plugin for this purpose, which allows you to control page titles, meta tags, internal linking, and other important ranking factors. In addition, the Genesis framework that powers your website has built-in SEO-enhancing features like Schema.org data and semantic HTML5 markup.
We code websites that conform with the web standards outlined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and don’t rely on faddish or proprietary software methods like Adobe Flash. This ensures a robust, “future-proof” website that can easily adapt to the ever-evolving Internet landscape.
Tying in with the previous feature, because of our responsible coding practices your website will appear more or less identical to all your visitors regardless of what web browser or operating system they use.
With PennyWebs, there are no mandatory maintenance contracts or other monthly fees. You hold the exclusive rights to your finished website, so you’re completely free to host it anywhere or hire other developers to update it for you. Because your site is built on an industry-standard CMS there are thousands of competent professionals for you to choose from, so you’ll never have a problem finding a qualified WordPress developer to work with.
Built to Last
Your website is built to last on the solid foundation of WordPress + the Genesis Framework. Both of these platforms regularly release updates & improvements that are automatically pushed to your website, and the good coding practices we employ ensure future updates won’t break your website.
