Coláiste Gaeilge Beo

www.colaistegaeilgebeo.com Being an Irish speaking only Summer school led us to registering an Irish URL in this case. My client has done a great job with social media to help boost his Search Engine listings, using both Face Book consistently (which can be a real chore) and also You Tube and Ficker, obviously I can help set up all the Social media for my customers but it is up to them to be rigorous with posts.

Kilronan Hostel

www.kilronanhostel.com  I use Simfatic form creation software to make forms as the forms are hosted in on my customers server and you cannot truly call your website secure if you have web forms hosted by an external company like Jotform. Kilronan however use Gomio booking software as a solution for taking bookings and payment online.

WELCOME / FÁILTE

Galway Site Design is based in Connemara More than 30 % of your visitors will be using a smart phone or other device with a small screen so I design websites that check this then load a version that suits the device. Is your existing website mobile friendly? Click here to find out. With over eight years experience designing websites, I can offer you good advice as well as good design skills. I will do my utmost to make your particular website a success. You probably have lots of questions needing answers the FAQ section of the site might help. Ranking highly with the search engines is very important, in fact essential if you are selling a product or your services on line. Using Face Book , Twitter and You Tube to keep your customers informed not only keeps them engaged it also helps with search engine optimization and your rankings. For further information about SEO please read some of my blog posts or give me (Rob) a call, on 0871615645. I advise my customers to use the best possible photographs for their website, I am not a professional photographer but have a good camera and know how to take a good shot so I do offer this service as an extra or we can use professionally taken royalty free images. Three most recent projects are www.connemaraoilpaintings.com  www.arangoatcheese.com   www.clprint.ie and www.kilronanhostel.com  and my own website with pet portraits, chainsaw art and information on Clyde Puffers is at www.derrykyle.com 
STORY About Rob I’m not what you might expect from a website design savy individual, I’m in my 50’s and you also wont employ me for my looks but then again I’m not selling underwear, it will be my job to help you make the on line side of your business work for you. I come from Scotland originally and haven’t lost my accent although I spent 20 years in Australia and am an Aussie citizen. The accent does not seem to be a problem dealing with my customers and I remember a small amount of Gaelic from back home. If I need to have Irish translation in the site I outsource this work to a person fluent in the regional Irish required. I’m a married man ( for 29 years ) an ex Sea Captain by trade and I have been designing websites now for over eight years, in the time I have been designing websites there have been huge changes and these are ongoing with the search engines constantly changing the way they rank websites. I look forward to working with you.

Below are a couple of websites I had “free reign” designing, from my clients I asked for the “feel” they required and also the type of customer they were seeking to attract. To ascertain “feel” I asked them to take note of any websites they saw on line that they thought theirs might replicate in some manner.

An image heavy example

This is an example of a full page refreshing slideshow which looks great but would be really difficult to get high up in results on Google. A home page like this could work ok for a well established on line business with lots of back links that has been on line for a number of years but I advise against this sort of design for new starts.

Glengowla Mines

The tour was wonderful - the history of the mines was really interesting and our guide John was very friendly and informative. We also had lots of fun panning for gold and gems. I'd love to go back!
