Step 9: publishing the site and telling people about it.

Once your site is signed off at both ends, we do a number of things to launch and publicise it.

  • repoint your domain name to the new site (this can take 24-72 hours, but is seamless);
  • re-register you with leading search engines to draw their attention to the new site;
  • submit a specially formatted sitemap to Google, Bing and Yahoo to aid their indexing of the new pages;
  • shut down the test version of the site we've
  • publicise the launch on your, and our, social networking channels;
  • add it to our own portfolio;
  • liaise with you about an HTML press release or other notifications.
