" I'd like a website that doesn't cost a fortune, where I can manage and update the content myself. I want to be able to modify my site easily as my business needs change. I want to work with someone who really stands by their product, who is obliging and who can take care of all the technical matters without charging me for every single nut & bolt. Is that too much to ask these days? "
WE SAY, "NO, THAT'S NOT TOO MUCH TO ASK AT ALL!"
While not strictly illegal, the outfit calling themselves Domain Services are presenting themselves as an essential internet service without which client web sites will not be able to be found in internet searches. Their email campaign suggests that if you do not pay their fee, there is no point in having a site on the internet. Essentially, they are masquerading as something they are not and as such may be regarded as a scam.
Their email message carries this warning:
"Failure to complete your seo domain name registration nzwebdesigners.com* search engine optimization service process may make it difficult for customers to find you on the web" *Yoiur domain name will appear here.

Is your existing website mobile-friendly? Does it display well on small screens?
It has been reported that the search engine company Google will penalise the rankings of sites that are not optimised for mobile viewing when the search query originates from a mobile device. In other words, if you do a search using your mobile phone then Google will first list sites that render well on your device. This change in policy does not impact upon the results returned for queries from a desktop computer.
All sites we build are mobile friendly so you may be confident that your rankings will not be detrimentally affected.
Got an existing site that is not mobile-friendly?
We have partnered with a third-party provider whose software will generate a mobile version of your existing site. The results are truly excellent, all without disturbing the files that generate your desktop site. The cost? Well, you might just be truly surprised.
Statistics show that, increasingly, people are accessing the internet via their mobile devices to do consumer research and to shop on line. It would be a shame if your company missed out on a share of the business resulting from this trend simply because your website is frustrating when viewed on the smaller screen.
