search optimisation

artsphere websites are designed to make your website easy for people to find. We use search engine friendly URLs like artsphere.com.au/page/news to give people and search engines a sense of what content they should expect to see on that page.

We’ve also built into the system the ability to add meta tags including keywords and descriptions to all of you pages so you can completely customise the information being read by Google and other search engines.

Features: Improve your discoverability

optional extras

Mailing list upgrade

If you want to regularly contact fans, the mailing list upgrade is for you. Using MailChimp, we'll create a new database for collecting and managing subscribers to your mailing list. You can then send the emails, track the results, see who has opened which emails and clicked on which links.

Google upgrade

We link your site up to Google Analytics which gives you fresh insights into how visitors use and arrive on your site. We’ll also setup Google Webmaster Tools which provides additional information about your website. You can use this data to improve how search engines crawl and index your site's content.

Domain names

Don't have a domain name? No problem. We'll organise it for you. You may find it convenient to manage both your website and your domain name with the same provider.
