Obligatory SEO

Sleepless Media is a website design firm in Santa Cruz, California that serves cities all over the San Francisco Bay Area, the state of California, and all across the United States. We also handle design and development projects for international clients when it's a good fit.
Local & National
Based in the heart of California, we of course love working locally and face-to-face with our clients when possible, but technology has permitted us to design many of the projects in our portfolio remotely. Regardless of your location, our process is conducive to all forms of communication.

Ahhh... Search Engine Optimization, That Tricky Little Devil.
Naturally, we'd like to make sure that Google, Bing, Yahoo! (and the other search engines that don't really matter), can easily find our site, and yours too. But we also want them to know what areas we serve the most often. But doesn't it drive you up the wall when you notice how repetitive and blatant a website's text can get while trying to seduce the ol' engine with an overload of nifty keywords and phrases?!

And really, what's the best way to do it anyhow? For instance, do we say we're a Santa Cruz Web Design Firm? A Design Agency? Or should we say Website Design Studio in Santa Cruz? Tossing them all around probably seems a bit suspect don't you think?

And how do we really classify ourselves anyways? Are we a web site design agency, a digital design agency, an interactive agency, a creative agency, a marketing agency, a design studio or a graphic design agency? Do we also need to let people know we can help with mobile web design, responsive website design and iPhone app design as well? Or is that a given? The combinations are endless!

Don't worry, there's more: how about to make sure we cover all the bases, we say we are a web design company, or web development company, or are we just plain old web designers, or even... gulp, webmasters? Regardless, we've got a huge web design portfolio and definitely feature more professional website design samples that you can shake a stick at.

And we should probably also mention our e-commerce web design services, or is it eCommerce Development? Speaking of commerce, we're a Shopify Plus Solutions Partner that does tons of Shopify work, so should we call ourselves Shopify Experts, Shopify Plus Experts, a Shopify Plus Agency or Shopify Plus Designers? It probably just depends on how you type it into a search engine. Ya know, it's up to you!

But wait, we're not just Santa Cruz Web Designers - We're SF Bay Area Web Designers, and behold we are also a Web Design Company in the San Francisco Bay Area! Imagine that! That means we're Silicon Valley web designers as well and we're talking the whole area, not just San Jose, Fremont, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Cupertino and Palo Alto.

Okay, we're getting a little bit overwhelmed at this point, but I think you get what we are trying to say: You're going to need our help figuring all of this SEO business out, (Or should we call it site optimization? or inbound marketing? or search engine marketing, or just plain internet marketing?) Regardless, if you'd like our help building out a site with solid search engine standards, time's a wastin' before the next Google algorithm changes!
