What is spiritual web design

In this modern world, people are looking for more.

At times, in spirit, speech and truth - less is more. In other words - distillation, purity, refinement. Light Design aims to listen carefully and find the current level of spirit in you or your organisation and reflect that in your website. Light Design endeavours to have the real essence of you on display. Your soul.

The quickest and easiest way to promote your website is through reciprocal linking, that's where you agree with another quality website of the same sort of genre as you to exchange links, so that people and search engines visiting your site will visit their site and vice versa.

Light Design can do the research and arrange to exchange links with other relevant sites to build your page rank. This can be a time consuming process.

Search Engine Optimisation is the act of formatting a web page(site) so that a search engine sees the page as you intend.

Search engine optimisation asks you - "What can we do to optimise this web site so that search engine spiders will find it easily, crawl it often, have a high page rank, and lots of visitors?"

Light Design includes Search engine optimisation in the original foundations or planning stages(the best time to think about search engine optimisation)of your site, and through the copy writing process.
Your web site is open 24 hours 7 days a week 365 1/4 days of the year (provided you have a good web host) and your site needs to be advertising your words/work every second of that time.

Search engine optimisation involves high quality web pages with good meta descriptions and keyword-rich content, it should be incorporated naturally into a website from the ground up.

Search engine submission (making sure search engines know your site exists) and search engine marketing come after your website is set up.

Copy Writing for the web is an art - the art of creating a compelling message to be easily understood by many people.

When you try to write a clear enlightening message which captivates your audience, you realise that copy writing is a difficult task.

Content written for a web site should be as short and as succinct as possible. People on the internet skim read. If you loose their attention span, or fail to impress with your words, they will continue elsewhere with their search.

How good are you at communicating?

With copy writing you need to effectively communicate for,

  • all ages,
  • all genders,
  • all cultures,
  • different beliefs
  • people of a different first language,
  • people highly engrossed in your topic,
  • people scanning for something specific,
  • people who've arrived from a search engine link,
  • visitors from round the world whose first language is different to the language your site's written in
