Non Profit Website Redesign and SEO Overhaul

Project Background:

The existing York County Prevention Collaborative (YCPC) website was working well, but making updates was becoming increasingly more challenging. The website was created and updated using a WYSIWYG editor (like Frontpage or Dreamweaver) over many years.  Although content was relatively up-to-date, making changes resulted in formatting errors and unintended changes. The problem was compounding with each update...

Project Goals

It was time for a change.  YCPC wanted a simpler and easier way to manage website. YCPC wanted the ability to make instant updates and changes through their own website.  YCPC wanted a Content Management System that would allow them to make blog postings, change page content and monitor website activity.  Saco Design was happy to redesign their website, holding true to the original design and layout, making improvements where neccessary and moving the website to Site Avenger.

York County Prevention Collaborative also wanted better visibility in the search engines.  To help with SEO, Saco Design reworked page titles, keywords and page descriptions.  In addition, Saco Design made all content and HTML coding semantically correct and valid xHTML according to the W3C guidelines.  To top it off, we also added a blog so not only will YCPC be able to post updates more easily, those updates will be presented to visitors in an easy to use format and help with SEO (search engine optimization)!
