WDSEO Celebrates Its 8th Birthday in July 2023

Sep 18, 2023

WDSEO Celebrates Its 8th Birthday - Present and Cake - Web Design and SEO Company

Check out the roundup of our 8th year in business – find out about our team, clients, awards, and charity activities.

But before we go any further, we would like to say a huge thank you to all of our clients, old and new, for your support – we would simply not be here without you. THANK YOU!

Team & Office News

New Hires & Promotions

In what are very challenging times for many businesses, we are extremely fortunate to have an amazing team working at the Web Design and SEO Company in Plymouth.

This financial year has seen 2 new joiners: Will Staton joined our Web Development team in November 2022 – it feels like Will has always been here!

And, more recently, Joe Behan, has joined us as “SEO and Digital Marketing Executive”. Watch this space for Joe’s “Meet the Team Interview”. Joe is currently getting to know his clients via a series of face-to-face and video meetings.

And, we were delighted to announce the very well-deserved promotion of Sue Perring to “SEO and Operations Manager”. Sue has worked tirelessly for the good of her clients and the company – and has now taken responsibility for managing our Client Support Desk (our support ticketing system) and Project Management, alongside taking care of a portfolio of clients, continuing to help them grow their businesses. Sue will be updating her “Meet the Team” page to reflect her new role in due course – when she gets a spare minute!

GA4 Training & Certifications

In true Google style, nothing ever stays the same for long! And this year has been no different. Google ended the use of its “Universal Analytics” tracking at the end of July 2023. We therefore needed all of our SEO team to retrain on Google’s new Analytics tool, called GA4.

Work Experience Student

We were delighted to be able to offer a 1-week work experience placement again this year, to a GCSE student from Heles School. This year’s placement process was again managed by Paul on our team, ensuring that the pupil got an excellent grounding in what it is like to work in a commercial Web Design agency. We were inundated with requests, and will look forward to hosting another student next year.

Staffroom Upgrade!

This year saw the addition of a Dart Board and Pool Table to our Staffroom. As you can imagine, there has been plenty of friendly rivalry!

I cannot recommend these guys highly enough.”

Caroline Langley-Jones, Quinbury Unleashed, Dog Exercise Field, Hertfordshire

We were impressed by the depth of research and attention to detail that Diana and her team put into the user friendly website.
We hit a technical issue during the launch, our concerns were addressed in a considered and effective manner.
We would recommend the Web Design and SEO Company Limited as a company that is a pleasure to work with 😃”

Charity Activities & Support

We decided to sign up for the St Luke’s Midnight Walk, as it is such a great cause. Sue decided we would enter the 13.1 mile event, which was a huge challenge! We did it, and some of us still have black toenails to prove it!

In all seriousness, we were thrilled with the wonderful support from clients, friends and family, and in total we raised £489 plus the Gift Aid.

We will definitely do it again next year – maybe a shorter walk though!

This is a very worthwhile local charity, supporting children and young people in the PL postcode area. Check out their website to find out more, including how you could get involved. It’s not just for ladies!
