This article is not about scripts and seo guides and software code that might help you improve your web experience. This article is about another experience that’s very close related with the web: the client experience. I mean the relation that’s created between the guy or the lady that want some web project (whaterver that is) and the team that work on that (let’s consider that a team of one is still a team ).

One of the aspects of my work is this clients relationship (it’s more than a dialog, an exchange of information – in time it might become a real business relationship if it’s too long). In time I’ve watch other people reaction about the subject and two very common problems are that the people does not know what they want and they are not educated, the does not have „the web culture”. I’ll start with the second problem because the first one is something personal, it depends to every person’s mind.

This article is about people, the beneficiaries, not about their products. It’s rather easy to read some emails from the dedicated services (yahoo, gmail and a lot of other companies that offer this), it’s rather easy to search with any available search engines (google, yahoo) and to acces some web pages – these kind of things are not hard to learn for a beginner / unexperienced users. With proper training in only few days, less than one week, one person can become an expert in reading mails and search for keywords. Being a consumer of some social networks is the next step for an internet user, they might move some time in that area until he/she finally understands it.

None of these make somebody an expert with the web culture. The beginners can understand a few things about the web, they can get some tricks how to use it better, but it takes some months or perhaps years to understand how the web really works… that’s what I understant in „the web culture”.

Being a web designer and/or a project manager it’s not easy. When you get clients that know the steps necessary to create a web page, a web project or a custom software (for example) or they have strong web culture it’s a piece of cake to do your job. The problems begin when you work in the field and you’ve got a beginner or the kind of guy/chick that can’t make up his mind… and trust me, you JUST DON’T WANT something like that. A simple project that can be done in a few days is sometimes finished in weeks or months after you’ve started the work. I’ve met people that said let’s do this and that (just a few things in general) and the team had to guess what he actually wanted. I’ve also met guys that surfed the internet after ideas about their webpage, they wanted something and later, every few other days, they wanted something different because they saw something interested or shiny. I’ve met people that have got a

Every time these guys had to be told how the things really works, they had to be thought about the steps of a projects, they had to be educated about the „web culture” (the way the internet works).

You might have met some guys like these in your life time, somewhere around the globe. There are lots and lots of them. You may be one of them and you found this article by accident… and there is no problem in that. It’s ok. If you understand this it is very good, it’s an important step to learn about the tools you are using to get your life better. We can provide this… the tools and the expertise. Contact us.

Do you want a web page or a web application? Excelent. Do you have a webdesigner or a web company to create your application? Good. Use them. What about the promotions of your product on the internet after delivery? Usually, the page is realease and that’s all, the webdesigner’s job is done and it is your bussiness to get somebody to promote your page or application and to get it well-known.

It’s the year 2011 Christian era and I started creating pages (professionaly speaking) about 7 years ago. I’ve picked up some stuff about search engine optimization in the last several years, but only lately, since the beginning of the last year, I have started to give it the necessary attention. Several weeks ago I had to make some minor improvements in one older page and I was a little ashamed… it was very poorly optimized for the search engines.

We are offering these services, but I am not going to convince you in any way to come to us… all I want is to give you some piece of advice: the web designing and the seo always work great together. The best pages are the ones that promote theirselves, in the matter of their content, how they looks (the design) and, the most important, their structure. The content and the design will make the people talk about the web page or the web application, but it will not bring it in the first 10 results of the search engines.

There still are companies and webdesigners that offer web development services and seo services, I know at least a few of them. It’s a good way to make some extra money from some clients that have no idea about what is a web page and how the search engines works: to create a web page with a minimum optimization on site and to offer that optimization as an auxiliary service. This works more often than you might think, but the client will always lose something: time, money or both.

So, when you decide to get a web site or a web application put the condition when picking up somebody to work on it: that the product must contain the basics or extended optimization for the search engines on site (integrated in the application).
