Octen Web Design Header

We design reliable websites that not only look great on all browsers and on all devices, but can easily be indexed by search engines.

We cannot control which browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, SeaMonkey to name the most popular) are used to view our sites, or even which device (mobile phones, notepads, laptops, small screen PC's and large screen PC's) our viewers use. So how do we ensure the websites retain a uniform look?

HTML5 logo

We use the latest code and industry best practice

All of our websites are designed using the latest HTML5 code and CSS3 styling, and every page is titled and given an accurate description.
Amongst it's many benefits HTML5 allows us to design dynamic websites which have improved interaction, better animation and can easily take advantage of future developments.
The combination of HTML5 and CSS3 also allows us to build responsive websites that automatically adjust to the viewing device.

W3C logo

Our code is independently validated

Both the HTML5 code and the CSS3 styling on every page of our websites are independently validated by the W3C.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community that develops open standards to ensure the long-term growth of the Web.
Valid code ensures compatibility with all the major browsers and facilitates effective search engine indexing.

Sitemap logo

All our websites include a site-map

A site-map in various format ensure the site can be easily and effectively indexed by all the major search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.).
A site-map provides an alternative way of navigating your site with many viewers preferring the 'Table of Contents' style.
Site-maps also provide a useful tool to check the page titles and descriptions for each of your pages.
