Our websites are fast

No-one has much patience online so we make sure our web servers are very responsive and we code client websites to be extremely fast. On good connections, our average client website currently downloads in:


0.76 seconds




Fully responsive websites

All client websites we manage are fully "screen responsive" on all devices. Screen responsive means webpages using the same online address whether they are on desktop or mobile, but "respond" according to the screen size of the device. This ensures our client sites can be viewed easily on everything from the smallest phone to large TV screens.




"Search ready" websites

There is no "secret" to search engine positioning. 1. Host your site on fast web servers with all the latest software updates. 2. Use responsive design. 3. "Content is King" and make sure you have relevant content. 4. Encourage some high-quality inbound links from websites already well positioned on the search engines. 5. Use social network platforms to promote your "brand" and 6. Work on page titles and descriptions.

We help all our clients in building a good search position. Some examples (among many) include position 1 on global search for "glass eyes", position 1 for "cleaning oak" and position 2 for global search on "race arches", position 5 on "rocking horse restoration" etc


Purley Language College We are really pleased with the service Seren Web offers. Mike has succeeded in getting us on the top page on Google (we were around page 25 before). This has had a positive effect on our revenues. We are extremely happy we chose to work with Seren Web.
