This instruction will save time, alongside allowing more complex functions to be incorporated into the website.

An expert WordPress web design agency will have knowledge regarding WordPress themes, plugins, and tools, as opposed to the basic tools which may be used if you only have a beginner level of understanding.

Alongside building a webpage, a WordPress web designer can construct an xml sitemap. This ‘contents table’ for your website is beneficial for SEO as it indicates to the search engine which information is available on your website and how to access it. An effective xml sitemap will ensure that your webpage is placed on the relevant results page.

When constructing a webpage, an expert WordPress designer would have knowledge regarding the preparation of alt text. This text is the written words that appear when an image does not load properly on a webpage. Including alt text with the images on a webpage is beneficial for a number of reasons, for example, it allows search engines to better analyse your page and rank it accordingly. Alongside this, it is helpful for the audio description tools for customers with visual impairments.
