Lawgical Websites FAQ

About

What does 'one-page' mean exactly?

Lawgical sites are one-pagers, meaning that all your company information stays on the same page of the site. This makes it easy to find the information your clients need all within a clean design.

Why is mobile-friendly important?

Mobile-friendly is extremely important for websites today. Having a site that is mobile-friendly means that it converts to fit the screen size of mobile devices. Search Engines (like Google) put a priority on mobile-friendly sites since the use of mobile devices to surf the web is growing rapidly. Having a site that is mobile-friendly, like Lawgical's, puts you ahead of the competition.

We believe that we provide fair and competitive pricing for our services and strive to make our customers as happy as possible.

How much say do I have in the design?

You have the final say on your website's design. Our designers work with you to provide a site that best suits your needs. However, keep in mind that there may be limitations and suggestions we make to help your site work and look it's best.

Why choose Lawgical Websites?

Lawgical websites are created with your industry and potential clients in mind. We offer a specialized product that is customized to your company and needs. We can quickly make updates to your code and give you advice on marketing and content. Hosting with us is also hassle-free! Don't worry about being able to read code, figuring out your domain security set up, or tech updates! We handle the tech side so you can be an expert in your own field.

Technical Details

How are Lawgical sites coded?

Lawgical sites are coded using HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and JavaScript/JQuery. Using this code allows Google bots to read your site easily (important for search engine optimization) and provides a workable design. Important text is not hidden in images and our design allows for accessibility and readability.

What does search engine optimized mean?

Lawgical sites are search engine optimized, meaning that they have a higher chance of ranking online. We provide content, meta tags, and keywords that are important to your industry and code it so that Google bots can read your site and assess its importance to online searches.

It is important to note that Lawgical, and any reputable company, cannot guarantee a top ranking spot online due to competition, unknown algorithms, and other factors. However, we keep up with the latest industry news to make sure that you have the best chances to appear in related searches for your company.

Can I have a chat feature on my site?

Lawgical does not have our own chat feature to add to websites. Instead, customers who want this feature often get the product from another company that supports it, and we add that code to our site. That said, many of our customers who had a chat feature later decided to remove it as it did not live up to expectations.

Can I use an API (Application Program Interface) with Lawgical websites?

No. We understand the desire to use API's from other companies (such as Stripe) to integrate their program on your website. However, we do not allow this as this requires more maintenance, support, and technical costs for us. We are able to provide affordable websites by restricting the technology requirements needed when using an API.

How do I receive inquiries from my website?

Our contact forms will send an email directly to you! Let us know what email address(es) work best!

I have my own domain, can I use that for my site?

If you own and have access to a domain, we are more than happy to link your domain URL to our design. You will still own your domain and be responsible for renewals. There are a couple of simple steps to linking your domain to our design, but we are happy to help and walk you through them.

If you registered and manage your domain through Wix, we can still connect your domain to our site design, but the connection will not be secure with an SSL certificate. This means that your website will have http:// instead of https:// in the URL. This setting is outside our control and due to Wix's set up and rules. You may read more about Wix's SSL and HTTPS rules here. If you have Wix and would like a secure site outside of their own hosting/design, we recommend transferring your domain to a registrar like GoDaddy that allows for security on different platforms.

I don't have a domain, how do I choose one?

We are happy to do some research to find available domains that best suit your company. We will provide you with a couple of choices that you may choose from and then we take care of the rest!

I want a domain-related email, is that possible?

Since domain-related emails involve linking domains to your personal email account, we are unable to set up this step ourselves. Please contact your domain manager to discuss setting up a domain-related email address. If you already have a domain-related email on a domain that you own, those emails will continue to work normally.

If you want to set up a domain-related email, we recommend Google Apps for Work through Gmail. At only $5 per month per user, it is the most reliable email platform available. There may be some information you need to send to us to complete this, but the majority of the set up is not completed by Lawgical.

I already have a domain-related email, will it continue to work?

In the vast majority of cases, yes. To keep your domain-related email working on a domain that you own, we simply transfer the nameservers, and your existing MX and the TXT records to our system so that your email stays connected.

However, there are some email hosting platforms that require that your nameservers to remain in their system in order for the email hosting to continue to work. One such platform is JustHost. We can still connect your site while maintaining your JustHost email, but the site will not be secure (https).

If you have an email solution like JustHost but still want your site to be secure, we recommend setting your company up with a more modern email solution, like Google Apps for Work/Gmail.

What is 'domain registration' and 'website hosting'?

A domain is the "address" of your site while hosting is the "house" where your website lives. While they are different services, you need both a domain and hosting to have an active website.

More technically, domain registration is buying a URL like "serve-now.com" and setting up domain nameserver records (DNS records) that point to where your website is hosted. Website hosting is the configurations that allow your site to function online. Lawgical/ServeNow provides website hosting for all of our websites. We offer domain registration if you do not already own your own domain or do not wish to.

What level of security do your sites provide?

Our hosting platform allows for a secure and encrypted connection between your site and a server, (a full SSL certificate). This gives your site the "https" URL, an important factor for people browsing the web. Most of all, hosting your site with us is hassle-free for your company. Our team knows the tech industry and requirements so that you don't have to. We take care of the background tech updates and keep your site fast. 

If you own your domain, we may not be able to provide a full SSL certificate that gives your site the "https" URL. This is due to registrar configurations that are out of our control. A known domain registrar that does not allow us to provide this security is Wix.

Do you provide any analytics?

We want to put the analytics into our customers' hands so they have the easiest access to the data they need. Therefore, we are happy to connect your site to your Google Analytics account. Here's how to get started.

Photos

What kind of photos can I use on my Lawgical website?

We are required to have legal permission for the photos used on our sites. This means we must have the photographer's permission to use their photo or the photo must be in the public domain and available for commercial use. Within these restrictions, we provide high-quality photos that fit your needs and reflect your business.

How many photos can I include on my site?

We do our best to fit the photos you want on your site, but we may recommend a different design layout to best suit your audience. Too many photos may overcrowd your site, and the content is the most important aspect of websites. 

Content

What content is included in my site?

We personally write the content for your site including the about us, services, and why you should be hired. However, we want input so that we create content that best suits your company. The more content and help you provide, the better! If you want additional or excess content, we may ask that you provide examples or write it yourself. Be sure to include the content you want in our design form.

How many "sections" are allowed on a one-page site?

All our Lawgical sites allow for enough content to show your company's most important information. We offer three main sections: contact, main body with about us/services/FAQ, and a footer. We also include links to your social media pages and memberships. If you would like more content, you may be interested in a Premium website.

Can I have a blog or articles on my site?

No. Running a blog or posting articles would mean that the site is multiple pages, something that our sites are not designed for. We understand that this is a deal-breaker for some, but consider how often you plan on posting to a blog. Unless it is fairly often, outdated blogs/articles can make companies look like they are out of business.

If you would like a blog and a Lawgical website, we can link to an external blog site that you run independently of Lawgical.

Can I edit my own site and content?

No. We don't allow our members to edit their own site to ensure that the code remains uncorrupted. If a member does edit their own site and irrevocably change the HTML/CSS, we cannot guarantee that we can recover the site to its previous design. Instead, you will be put in contact with our website designer who can easily and quickly make changes to your content and design. 

Don't worry about learning to code or signing into another platform, you can just simply email the changes you would like to see!

Logos/Memberships

I have a company logo, can I include this?

Of course, please email us your logo in a .jpeg or .png file form to your Marketing Consultant. Typically, a horizontally oriented logo works best (longer than it is high).

Can I include my memberships and their logos?

Yes, if you are a member of an association, we may include your membership as well as their member logos on your site. Please let us know what associations you belong to on our website design form and email us the membership logos you would like to include. 

Premium Websites

Premium websites provide the same features as the regular Lawgical one-page sites, but Premium allows for additional content and an on-page navigation bar. These sites are made for larger one-page sites that need extra content that requires a navigation bar for ease of use. Contact your Marketing Consultant for examples and to see if a Premium website is right for you. Set up fees for our Premium website are $499.

Post Design

How do I make the most of my website?

Spread the word! Tell your clients and employees about your site so that they can use and reference it for future help. You can make the biggest impact by sharing and linking your website to powerful sites online so that it is exposed to more people and earning backlinks. Here are some places to get started:

  • Social media - link your new website to all your existing accounts and profiles on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+.
  • Have Websites link to you - have industry associations, directories like the Better Business Bureau, and ServeNow / PInow / AboutBail listings link to your website.
  • Resource Sharing - Guest blogging, sharing helpful industry tips, and partnerships that direct a link back to your website can help spread your business' influence.
  • Local Search - One of the most effective ways to get your business noticed is through Google Local, the map section of Google results. Register your business for free, and contact us to discuss ways to increase your ranking. Read more here: http://www.serve-now.com/join/local-search.

I'm getting emails from random SEO and website design companies saying they can spruce up my site. Are these legitimate emails?

These emails are very clear sales tactics done by people wishing to sell you expensive and unnecessary SEO products or website upgrades. They can be clever and look legitimate if you aren't a tech pro, but these emails are spam - sent in mass quantities hoping that they can get some business. They most likely have not looked at your page's worth or really created that "free analytic assessment." We recommend that you ignore these emails as we've created a quality product truly aimed at providing your business with a valuable online presence.
