Will Building a Website from a Template Affect SEO Rankings?

That’s not necessarily true if you know what you are doing. If done right, a template-based website can still help you rank. A lot of web design Manchester agencies build websites using templates, but they don’t just stop there. At Blue Whale Media, we not only do we build custom websites; we make sure your website is SEO optimised. This ensures that you have a perfectly SEO ready website.

Having said that, a template-based website isn’t without troubles! Here are some things you should know about before building a website using templates. These are the very reasons why it’s better to build a custom website with the help of a professional web design Manchester agency.

Trust and Credibility

Although a template based website may not have any negative impact in terms of SEO, it may pose a problem in terms of credibility. For instance, say you sell women’s clothing. You choose to use a generic template that’s already been used on a thousand other websites. The “oh so common” design may pose a problem. Your visitors may find it vague and may find it difficult to trust you. But this is a situation you don’t want to get caught it. After all, what’s the point of having a high ranking website but has poor conversion rates?

The Trouble of the Tempting Template Demos

So you’ve already done some research and have some templates in mind. You have viewed the demo versions of each of these templates, and a few of those demos simply blew your mind. You are excited about buying one of those templates. You want your website to looks exactly like one of those template demos. The only trouble is that your website may not be identical to the demo version. Moreover, replicating the demo may not be as easy as it may seem. You definitely need the expertise of a web design Manchester agency to help you make the most of a template.
