website templates


Real Wisconsin Website Design came about as a natural extension of the many requests received from non-profit groups as well as our many friends who run small businesses located here in Wisconsin and a need for them to have an effective social media website.

As a leading edge technologist our founder James Murphy has always stayed ahead of current technology curves and therefore started building leading edge mobile and social media friendly websites for our many friends and non-profit group associates.
As demand grew we felt the need to make it official.

What you want the way you want it.

Once the quote is agreed, that IS the price you pay, no extra charges (unless you add something additional that was not in the original quote). My policy is that when I give you a price, even if the project takes longer than expected, there are no additional charges. What you are quoted is what you will pay!

No big charges up front, just a non-refundable 20% to 50% deposit to get your project started.

*FREE basic support includes ALL the necessary support to get your site up and running within the first 30 days. We now require at least for the first 12 months, that your project include at least a Tier 1 monthly management package.

The process is quite simple:

• Complete the RealWis Client Quote Questions sheet select an existing Site Package or contact me with full details of what you require.

• I will contact you within a few hours to verify your requirements, and quote.

• If you are happy with the quote, you pay a 20% to 50% deposit, using the order number supplied and supply me with any images and text you want to use.

• Your account is set up automatically where you can view the details of your project and monitor it’s progress.

• Your project starts and you can monitor the look and work via a secure dedicated area on one of our servers.

• Whilst the project is in progress, you can test the site on the live demo server and any tweaks are made as per your requirements.

• Once your project is complete, you re-test, and once you are happy you pay the balance of your order, and within a few hours you either receive your files or your site is uploaded and set up on our live on the designated servers.

This question is difficult to answer for all sites as it depends upon the complexity of the project, particularly if databases, security or complex code is required. Your site will also be extensively tested to ensure it ‘does what it says on the tin’, however approximate time scales are detailed below:

• One Page Web Site Package: approx. 2 days.

• 10 Page Web Site Package: approx. 7-10 days.

• 20 Page Web Site Package: approx. 14-20 days.

• Complex E-Commerce, Membership or Sophisticated Library Search Site: approx. 21-24 days.

• Very complex resource or room booking site: approx. 28-30 days.

The above time scales are very approximate and the times may be less or more depending upon the individual project. We will be able to give a more accurate indication once we have reviewed your quote/order.

What Are the SEO Benefits of XML & HTML Sitemaps?

What Are the SEO Benefits of XML & HTML Sitemaps?

A sitemap is (usually) an XML document, containing a list of pages on your website that you have chosen to tell Google and other search engines to index.

Google often uses the sitemap file as a guide to the pages available on your website — even though it may decide not to index every page you list on your sitemap.

The sitemap also carries information about each page, including when it was created and last modified, and its importance relative to other pages on your site. This speeds up the process of indexing pages.

A sitemap is one of those rare things in SEO that Google has given the big thumbs up to. Normally, Google likes to talk to website owners in cryptic riddles.

However, for sitemaps, Google makes it pretty clear:

“If your site’s pages are properly linked, our web crawlers can usually discover most of your site. Even so, a sitemap can improve the crawling of your site, particularly if your site meets one of the following criteria …”

Which websites need a sitemap?

In “the following criteria”, Google claims that sitemaps are helpful for…

 Large websites

 Websites with lots of content that’s not well linked

 New websites

 Websites with rich media content

It’s clear from the above that the majority of websites should have a sitemap.

Are there any risks to having a sitemap?

Sitemaps are a rare, beautiful, wonderful part of SEO. Having a sitemap poses no risks to website owners — only benefits.

While Google does make a point of saying it cannot guarantee that its bots will even read a sitemap, it also points out:

“In most cases, your site will benefit from having a sitemap, and you’ll never be penalized for having one.”

To sum up,

Google has confirmed that you won’t get punished for a sitemap and that it might help your website. With that information, you can see precisely why every website that wants to rank on Google needs one. Whenever I start working with a client on an SEO campaign, I always recommend a sitemap as part of the process.

Should I have an XML sitemap or an HTML sitemap?

The difference is that XML sitemaps are written for search engines and HTML sitemaps are written for humans.

An XML sitemap is specifically written for search engine spiders. A search engine spider can quickly and easily extract all the important pieces of information about your site by looking at the XML file.

An HTML sitemap enables lost human users to find a page on your site that they are looking for. Remember that search engines reward sites that are easy to use and that, in many cases, you can improve your site’s ranking by improving your user experience. It may be the case that you provide a better user experience by providing an HTML sitemap.


Creating an XML sitemap and an HTML sitemap is worthwhile for website owners who want to make sure they’re doing everything they can to please the SEO gods. Though there’s no concrete evidence that a sitemap will benefit your website, there’s a good chance that it will — and with no risk of penalization, you should definitely set one up.

Here is a very important note:
