At EggCup Web Design we aim to build websites to suit most budgets. We build the majority of our sites using WordPress, which is already a cost-effective content management platform in itself.

Writing blog posts for your business is a brilliant way of building a conversation around your brand, and getting more of your website indexed by Google.

Worse than this, you might even find your site being penalised by Google too.
