Cheap Website Design in Miami: Solutions tailored to meet your needs.

Have you ever heard of the concept of “bounce rate” when it comes to the website developer industry? If the answer is no, then you should really pay attention.

“Bounce rate (sometimes confused with exit rate) is an Internet marketing term used in web traffic analysis. It represents the percentage of visitors who enter the site and then leave (“bounce“) rather than continuing on to view other pages within the same site.”

Put in place by the all mighty Google, the bounce rate is one of the most important ranking factors in the search engine ever evolving algorithms, and certainly one that is unlikely to change in the near future.

It is estimated that it takes a few seconds for the average visitor to judge the value of a website and decide whether he or she wants to stay on for a while longer, or move on to the next site.

Think about it… Count … One … Two … Three .. And if, by then, your site hasn’t made enough of a compelling case for visitors to continue exploring it, the average person will have decided to leave your site and search for a better one. A decision that isn’t going to help your bounce rate ratio, and might, ultimately propel your site to a position in the ranking results that will be so low, it might as well not be there.

Lesson: If you’re looking for a web designer, make sure he or she understands the concept of bounce rate.  A poorly designed website, that does not combine compelling content with a pleasing layout will not help you in your goals of achieving online success.

What is Web Design?

Website design stands at the very core of a company’s effort to showcase its services and products to the public at large. It is a field like none other, because the quality of a design and the structure put in place will determine whether a visitor stays on the site, or becomes one of the “Bounce rate” statistics. Poorly designed sites will increase that rate, making it practically impossible for high search engine rankings to ever move away from the pit in which millions of webpages find themselves.

Well-designed sites, by the virtue of a prolonged stay by visitors will at least convince Google and the search engines that if people stay on a site for longer, then there must be something there to investigate.

Website design combines the process of creation, development and refinement into one entity, transitioning smoothly from one the next, and it is this process that will be responsible for the ultimate goal of turning visitors into customers.
