Click to visit the site

The Montesano, WA Presbyterian Church had no web site. We worked with the pastor and church leaders to develop a site to keep church members informed as well as to present the church to Christians looking for a warm church home.

We maintain their site on a regular basis to keep it current and fresh.

Things to Consider when Creating a Website

  • Your Domain Name: One of the important things you have to do is to name your site. If visitors know your name, the first thing they may try is to enter "www.yourname.org" to see if your site pops up.
  • Look and Feel: All pages in your site should tie together with a common basic layout and color scheme. Hopefully one that will evoke a hoped-for reaction in the mind of the viewer.
  • Readability: Can old eyes see it?
  • Load time: Although high-speed Internet access is becoming more prevalent, most people still use dial-up. If a page has a lot of large pictures, fancy menus, and other "flashy" stuff, the viewer may become impatient while waiting and vote "no" with a mouse click. This page is designed to load in 17 seconds for a dial-up connection; without the pictures, it would load in 9.
  • Navigation: Visitors to your site should have no trouble finding the information they are seeking. Consider who will visit your site and what they will be seeking.

    Church members may be looking for upcoming events while nonmembers may by seeking a place to worship that "suits their style". People may be looking for help or looking to help.
  • Presentation: Your message must be clear and easily grasped. If a visitor has to wade through a large amount of rhetoric, s/he may not find your message. Bullet points, short declarative sentences, lists, and such can speak very effectively.
  • Search Engine Results: If someone is trying too find your site on Google, they could encounter a million "hits" for the search phrase they use. If your site doesn't pop up on the first page or two, that person may give up.
  • Being Banned by a Search Engine: Some self-styled Search Engine Optimization firms (and software) use questionable methods to "fool" search engines. If you're caught, you may be blacklisted. Getting back to normal is a nightmare. Others may use techniques that no longer work such as "meta tag" stuffing.
