W3SitePro/W3PagePro, a California company, specializes in custom web site design, development, implementation and maintenance. The services provided by W3SitePro/W3PagePro are a diverse offering of graphical design and layout, beginning with storyboards, wireframes, following through with development and implementation, search engine optimization and marketing (SEO/SEM) and culminating in client return on investment (ROI) and ongoing upkeep and maintenance.
Design encompasses all facets of a software project, front-end visual and GUI (Graphical User Interface) and back-end server resources. Design takes the requirements stated by a client and evaluates the business rules and logic, the visual interface requirements, colors, layout and navigation, page depth, internal and external linkages, database modelling, server architectures and so forth. Good design maps out the project before-hand and serves as a road-map or guide for coders, graphics and animation specialists, testers and others to promote the tasks that they must engage in as they bring the project to fruition.
UI/UX is an abreviation for User Interface/User Experience and it is often used to punctuate or buzz-word those techniques that define aspects of the user interface that promote user experience and satisfaction with that interface, be it visual, mechanical or of some other form.
The user interface includes the layout, colors, visibility, controls, sound, touch, look and feel and so forth of the interface, visual, mechanical or of any form which affects user interaction with a software product.
User Experience measures the user's intuitive use of a software product, their satisfaction with it and their retention, loyalty and referal capacities.
W3SitePro / W3PagePro design philosophy stems from an understanding of cognitive interaction in user interface and experience (UI/UX), a fundamental objective of Universal Design (UD), accessibility and application of Human Computer Interface (HCI) techniques, applied to site layout, navigation, intuitive operability and user retention, loyalty and page depth during visitations. W3SitePro / W3PagePro designs websites and web pages so that users transact on the site and ultimately, must really want to leave to exit the site with intentions to come back again.
Cognitive interaction cognitive visual interaction studies are involved with the psychology of users as they interact with web sites and their visual interfaces. This involves layout, navigation, intuitive controls and process or interaction flows. The goals of cognitive studies are many. The studies seek to evaluate, affirm and/or direct a fundamental correctness of software project user interfaces. That correctness has the objective of enhancing user retention, user experience or satisfaction and user interaction depth. Retention is both measured in terms of the length of time a user spends on the site during a single visit and a user's loyalty to the site, the compelling nature of the site to inspire users to return to it again and again, and in a sense to refer others to the site. This is tied very much to any users satisfaction with their experience and value of the site. The depth of a user visit involves navigation on the site. Depth involves invoking the processes of the site to such an extent that multiple pages are visited during a single visit. Zero depth indicates that a user visited the main page and did nothing. Greater depth on the other hand, affirms user interest by their interaction with the site to the extent that they invoked many of the site's multiple pages.
Human Computer Interface
Human Computer Interface is a doctrine which is applied to Software Engineering of user interfaces for computer products. It relates the software development life-cycle (SDLC) to those aspects of design, development and maintenance which are involved in the human computer interface or interaction. These include layout, mockups, proto-types, cognitive studies, intuitive usage, accessibility and much more.
Development is often described in terms of a life-cycle of events which define the not just the coding and graphics production steps required to implement a project, but the entire series of events beginning with the project's vision and concluding after release with the projects ongoing maintenance and updates. The Software Development Life-cycle (SDL) can take many forms, waterfall and iterative waterfall being among the most common. Development begins with the client's requirements documentation, evolves through that vision through mockups and storyboards, through graphics production, prototyping, programming and coding of the actual web site or application, testing and then, final approval and release. And yet it continues with ongoing maintenance, support and upgrades after site building is completed.
Maintenace of a software product, be it, a resident computer program or a web-site, is a necessity. After release of a project, inconsistencies will always be discovered. No software is ever free of these inconsistencies which are discovered after release, in particular, it can be stated that no software is ever free of bugs or problems. These inconsistencies lead to further testing, debugging, and resolutions to the inconsistencies, fixes and engineering changes. Engineering enhancements, upgrades and other modifications are often done as part of ongoing maintenance.
Service is an ongoing commitment by W3SitePro/W3PagePro to provide all aspects of design, development, maintenance and enhancements to clients in an equitable, professional, technically sound and timely manner.
Software Engineering is the fundamental process of design, development and maintenance of software projects.

SEO/SEM, Search Engine Optimization and Search Engine Marketing, defines a number of techniques which are ongoing in nature, that premote visibility and business interactions on the web. Search engines, the web devices which enable web surfers to find and view various sites, rank sites and order them in the results of a search by those rankings. SEO techniques are used to enhance a site's capacity to appear in the first few pages of search results, if not on the very first page, given certain keywords for a search which is applicable to the site. SEM on the other hand, includes SEO, but also links similar businesses or sites on the web, provides other links such as online press releases and RSS feeds which in effect, group a site into online partnerships and mutually supporting connections with other sites which promote or are supportive of the sites business rules.
