ASWebdesign was founded in 2006 in Watford, Hertfordshire by Andy Sidders.
After graduating from the University of Reading with a degree in Electronic Engineering instead of immediately starting a job I started a web based project with my Dad. Our aim was to develop a website for A-level maths students in the UK. After approaching several web design companies we decided that as we both had a background in programming that we would design and code the website ourselves.
After much hard
Not wanting to give up on the website, I continued learning different web design and search engine optimisation (SEO) techniques and by a process of trial and error completely redesigned and recoded ExamSolutions. In 2005 ExamSolutions and I had a breakthrough. The site rocketed up the search engine listings and ranked in the top 10 on the major search engines for a number of keywords I targeted. The site now receives approximately 600 visitors per day and peaks at around 3000 visitors per day on the buildup to the exams in January and June.
After achieving a successful position in the search engines for ExamSolutions, I then set out to use the techniques I had learned on ExamSolutions on new websites with different themes, targeting different keywords.
After producing several successful websites, enjoying designing and watching them receive lots of visitors, I realised, I didn’t actually want to be an Electronic Engineer!
I started ASWebdesign in 2006 and continue to enjoy designing and optimising websites both for myself and for my clients.
