- Optimizing each page for the major search engines.
- Placing a traffic analyser in your site. This will tell how many hits your site gets, which pages are being visited.
- Monitoring traffic to site, are users coming directly to your site or through search engines or links from other sites.
- Analysing keywords and phrases used in search engines to find your site.

"Web Business Ireland recently completed the design and construction of a new website for Brookhaven Healthcare. We selected Web Business Ireland on the back of a number of references we had received for other projects which they had completed. The project also involved the development of logos and a new corporate image."
"During the course of the project the staff of Web Business Ireland operated in a most professional and competent manner at all times. Project budgets and specifications agreed in advance were strictly adhered to and all variations were similarly dealt with. Such projects require significant input by the client and this aspect was also very well managed."
"We are very pleased with the quality of the end result which presents a vibrant and professional image of our business. I have no hesitation in recommending the team at Web Business Ireland to potential clients for similar projects in the future."
Kids Klubs Montessori
"We choose Web Business Ireland to create our website and we were very impressed with their professionalism (and patience) from day one. We did not have a website to start with and did not know very much about what we wanted or needed. The designer was very thorough and was able to guide us through what was the best path for our specfic business."
"Our ideas and input were listened to and each step or change was clearly explained to us. The result is an eye-catching and user friendly site that represents our business perfectly. We have had many compliments from our existing clients and it has definitely brought in more business as we have been able to reach a wider audience."
"This was down to the designer understanding our needs and continually monitoring the traffic to the site and ensuring the content was relevant for search engines. We use Web Business Ireland for all our advertising needs and stationary and have always found the designs to be fresh, consistent and perfect for representing our image."
"We have been working with Web Business Ireland for four years now, and cannot imagine another company being able to deliver such a high standard as they do. We would highly recommend their services"

"Web Business Ireland have been a pleasure to work with since we employed them in 2008 to design our website, company logos, business cards and other stationary. Their attitude is always enthusiastic and positive.
They are always available to discuss modifications, design changes or website updates and they continue to provide input/feedback worth listening to. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others."
