Web Design Review 2011
10 Jan 2012
The new year is upon us and we are focusing on new website designs here at Irish Web HQ, but here’s a quick look back at some of our best web designs for customers all over Ireland.
Web Design Trends in Ireland
As usual, the business owners knowledge of SEO and social media is increasing and website owners are now more thoughtful about how they would like their website to integrate with social media sites.
Web Design Tools
All of our websites are capable of sharing blog content in a number of ways. We use Google XML Sitemaps to notify the major search engines when a blog post has been updated and we automatically send the update sitemap.xml file to the search engines.
We also use systems like dlvr to share content from the blog to social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Content is automatically sent to these networks whenever the user updates their blog and there are good backlinks which is helpful for SEO.
From a design point of view, an increasing number of users also have a greater understanding of how they want their site to look and the layout required.
