Some times the terms web design and web development are used interchangeably, but the two terms refer to two different things. Web design typically refers to the process of designing a web site or web page layout (i.e. the visual look). In this stage the creation encompasses photoshop file(s) representing what the finished product will look like, minus any coding. Web development typically refers to the process of programming or coding the photoshop file(s). It can be divided into two categories: front-end and back-end development. Front-end development entails creating the pages using XHTML and CSS and adding the content. Back-end development entails programming the functionality of the site so the right information is presented in the correct format (the part visitors don't see). Usually dynamic, database-driven web sites require extensive back-end development using PHP, ASP, Coldfusion, etc.

Yes. You should always have complete access to your web site to make any changes you desire. But keep in mind two questions: 1) Do you have the time to maintain the site? and 2) Do you have the skills necessary to make the changes without ruining the integrity of the site design? How you answer these questions will determine what kind of maintenance plan Burrow Designs will recommend.

Having a great web site means little if no one is visiting it. There are ways to improve search engine results, enhance site rankings, and increase click-throughs. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) involves adding meta information to the header of your web pages and using relevant title tags, headers, link text, ALT tags, and hyperlink URLs in the content areas. In addition, you should follow current SEO strategies when designing the architecture or layout of the site, including the site's navigation, url structure, page structure, and cross-linkage. Upon completion, Burrow Designs submits each site to the major search engines for indexing. It takes an estimated 60-90 days for sites to be indexed and appear in the major search engines.
