The foundation of any website is the code. Does a Hibu website use good coding practices?
Hibu Website Quality
Are Hibu websites good quality? To answer this question, we must first define what a quality website is. The following are attributes that should be present with any quality website. This list is listed in order of importance for grading websites with the percentage I’ve applied to this grading scale are listed in parenthesis.
Clean Code – One of the factors in Google’s algorithm is page load speed. If your website contains a lot of bloated code (unnecessary code) then it will fail in this category.
Quality Content – Probably the single most important factor for trying to get a website to rank in the search engines is the content. We will look at whether or not Hibu websites have good quality content that gives the small business website a chance to show up on Google
Calls to action – Every website should have clearly defined calls to action. Things like “Quote Requests”, “Call Now”, “Receive a Discount”, and “Watch our video” are a few examples of calls to action. We will look at whether or not Hibu Websites use effective calls to action or not.
Basic SEO – A website can’t possibly be considered a quality website if the basics of SEO are not implemented properly.
Mobile Optimized (aka: Responsive) – Google has publicly stated that, with the rise of mobile searches, they will demote websites that do not have a responsive design.
Design (how it looks) – does the website look good? Is it pleasing to the eye of the website visitor. This measurment is subjective, but there are some aspects of a website that will turn away visitors fast if they don’t look good. Things like misaligned images, improper or unrelated headings, bad color scheme, and other design issues will end up costing you business in the long run.
Price – Are you getting what you paid for? We will look at what you actually get with a Hibu website and whether or not that is a good value.
