Alleydude Website Design

The Alleydude approach to graphic design is simplicity. Sites with flash and a lot of JavaScript script tend not only perform poorly in the search engines, but also put off the visitors due to slow load times and clunky interface. Graphic design should not only look good, but should allow your visitors to get the information they are looking for with minimal wait time and as few clicks as necessary. The sites that I have designed in the past have performed well in the search engines and look appealing to the eye.

Graphic design is not just an artistic process, but is a marketing process that must not only present the company in an appealing and inviting way, but must also bring the customers to the site in the first place. Flash animations and fancy java scripts do not do this, and in fact work against you. Search engines like text and simple, tight code, which is what I specialize in. My graphic designs and web designs will bring customers to your door and get them to the information or products they are looking for. Whether it's a completely new site, or a basic face lift for your website, I know what you need and have the means to make it happen at a reasonable price.

...and just a side note: The graphics you see on this page and not flash or Java, they are animated .gif files that are alt-able and title-able, making them search engine friendly, and if done correctly require minimal load time.

Affordable SEO

How much do you have in your budget to spend on SEO? $10,000? $100,000? Though these figures seem high, the truth is that you could easily spend this with other SEO companies. Many will try to sell you on Pay-Per-Click (PPC), and other will try to trick you into spending big bucks with them just to get you to rank on some silly, unrelated keywords that do you no good what-so-ever. It's these people you need to avoid like the plague. They are not out to help you, just take your money.

Looking for affordable seo? The SEO Brigade is all about affordable search engine optimization. The fact of the matter is that you can NOT afford not to have your site professionally optimized for Natural Search. So how much is SEO worth to you? If you have it in your budget to advertise, then you have money better spent on organic SEO. (See What Is SEO.) Consider Affordable SEO. A newspaper ad can cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars, and only offer a one time exposure. TV ads cost even more and are only good for as long as the ad campaign lasts. Magazine ads are only good for as long as the reader is looking at your ad. SEO lasts years, maybe for as long as you own your website. Affordable SEO by the SEO Brigade is the best bang for the buck that your money can buy when it comes to marketing your product or service. People search Google more than they do the Yellow pages these days. How can anyone overlook the potential of the Internet? You can not overlook affordable SEO.
