Improving Search Engine Ranking

The recent re-launch of John Bullock's lighting design website is now beginning to bear fruit with increased search engine performance. Visitor numbers up by 54%, page views up 214%, pages per visit up 105% and bounce rate down by 16.5%.

These stats show the positive impact of investing in a larger site which has been thoughtfully optimised for search engine performance. Increased visitor numbers speak for themselves, but the reduction in bounce rate also indicates a better quality visit to the site for those that click through (they don't just leave the site as soon as they arrive). In addition the duration of visit has increased by 72% which along with the increased pages per visit means that people find more information to interest them and take time to look around.

These results have been achieved by having a clear understanding of the business goals of These have been clearly interpreted in the design and content of the website, and particularly in the advice we have given on copywriting and other elements of the SEO package.

New Website For Osmington Village Hall

We’re pleased to announce that we have just launched a NEW website for Osmington Village Hall. Osmington Village Hall came to us needing a brand new website as the old one had been taken offline. We built the website from the ground up taking a fresh new approach alongside Osmington Village Hall.

Relaunch Of Weymouth And Portland Info Website

We’re excited to announce that we have relaunched the Weymouth and Portland Information website. The website is an internal project of ours and one that’s needed attention for a while. The main aim of the redesign was to make the website responsive and easier for users to navigate around.

New Website For R-em Therapies

We have just launched a new website for Emma at R-EM Therapies. R-EM Therapies is a new client of Alacrify’s that we’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with. R-EM came to us needing a new website as the old site was starting to show its age. The old site also wasn’t responsive and was also unsecure which negatively impacted the site's search engine rankings as well as being hard for users to access on their mobiles and tablets.

New Website For Ecs Special Projects

We have just launched a new website for ECS Special Projects. This is another website of ours that we originally built many years ago. The old site stood the test of time and still performed very well in Google searches, but the time had come for the look and feel to be updated in line with more contemporary design approaches.
