We’ve been live for just over three months now, designing and building websites for small businesses. Happy and excited to say we have our first satisfied customers and some websites to share with the world. Have a look at our new ‘Our Work’ page – and contact us if it sparks any ideas!

Latest happenings and thoughts on web design, SEO and helping your business thrive online.
A big bit of news recently in SEO (search engine optimisation) is Google’s indexing of mobile sites first, before desktop ones. Google will still find your desktop site, but it’ll look for a mobile one first and prioritise its ranking. In the case your site’s responsive, where it’s the same on desktop and mobile, then this won’t impact you much. Where you have a mobile site but it’s got less content, you’ll struggle to hold your place in the ratings. If you haven’t got a mobile site, Google will continue to rank your desktop site, but it will move down the list against your mobil-ised competitors. Looking for pointers on how to manage this change? Google has issued some guidance. This older article from searchenginejournal.com was published before the changes took effect. It offers some useful context and tips. Do you still have questions about mobile-first indexing or another SEO topic? Please feel free to contact us for a friendly chat.
The weather is foul today but we’re inside getting ready for our Lodge Digital launch. We’re excited about the chance to help businesses in Shrewsbury get online and grow their social presence. We get a kick out of designing websites and running social campaigns which deliver returns for our clients while connecting them with their customers. It’s still early days, pre-launch, and our first projects are coming together. Once we deliver a few, we’re looking forward to adding a ‘Portfolio’ page to our site. In the meantime, if you have any questions or just want to speak to us, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
It’s an exciting time for Lodge Digital. We’re getting ready to launch our new web design and digital marketing business, and there’s still lots to do. We’re busy building our profiles on social sites like Facebook and Twitter and Instagram, testing links and getting ready to send this site live. Say hello on email or by ringing. We’d love to hear from you.
