Custom Web Design
Our Web Design services are custom made to create unique websites for your business. We believe that a website should be a living document that accurately portrays your business. For a website to be effective, it must:
- Be search engine friendly

- Be easy to update with news and information
- Be fast loading with optimized code and image management
- Have a strong, secure infrastructure
- Contain a sitemap to help visitors and search engines find what they are looking for
In order to achieve all of these goals with our websites, Veritex utilizes the most up-to-date applications and technologies. We follow a checklist that insures that all of our websites meet current W3C standards, have SEO-friendly titles and meta-data and are up-to-date with current security patches.
We design our websites to be mobile friendly and can be viewed on a variety of devices. We use responsive web design practices in order to dynamically resize images and content so they can be seen on smaller screens.

Our mobile-friendly sites offer the following features:
- Resized images to fit smaller screens
- Click-to-call and click-to-text buttons
- Mobile maps and “Find Us” links
- Thumb-friendly buttons that link to services and high-priority pages

Search Engine Optimization
We follow Google’s Webmaster Guidelines in order for sites to be properly indexed in all major search engine directories. While we do not make any fantastical claims such as “guaranteed first page in Google,” our sites are built with SEO as a top priority.
Your site will include:
Proper Headings, Titles and Meta Tags
Each page will have a unique title and description that allows search engines to properly determine the content and meaning of each page. Search engines use these fields to display information about your site in their search results pages.
Structured data is specific markup syntax that properly identifies relevant information on a web page to assist search engines understand the information and provide richer results. Standard fields are identified and defined by schema.org, a collaboration by Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo! to improve the web by creating a structured data markup schema supported by major search engines.
For example, a typical web page may list your contact information as follows:
City, State ZIP
Search engines must crawl your site and attempt to identify specific fields to help provide relevant search results. However, when using structured data, we are able to specifically identify data as relevant without changing how the end-user is viewing the data.
Contact information using structured data:
<Organization Name>Company Name</Organization Name>
<Street Address>Address</Street Address>
<Locality>City</Locality>, <Region>State</Region> <Postal Code>ZIP</Postal Code>
Structured data will be added to all relevant fields including contact information, services and informational articles.
Machine Readable Sitemaps
Search engines use sitemaps to identify pages on websites and to be notified of important and non-important information. A sitemap built in XML allows search engines to quickly and efficiently identify relevant information and updates without adding additional processes.
An XML sitemap will be generated for your site and will be updated automatically when new pages, posts and other information is added or modified.
We will submit your new site to the three major search engine indexes. This allows Google, Bing and Yahoo to identify your site as live and to add it to their index
