Text Pages
A page of text is generally defined as about one 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper, 12 pt. size font, single-spaced, with 1-1/2 inch margins at top, bottom, and sides.  We don't get to technical about if your information is a bit more or less - it's just our way to define a "page" for quoting purposes.

Meta tag keywords and descriptions

Meta tag keywords and descriptions are inserted into the coding of your page(s) to assist search engines in the indexing of your web site.  We do not charge for the insertion of meta tags if you provide the "keywords" and "descriptions".  If you prefer, we can advise you as to what you will need to consider when writing your keywords and descriptions.   If you wish to have us write your meta tags, our fee is $50 to research and write a set of keywords and a description.

If you are interested in viewing other sites meta tags, just go to the "view" window while on any site and then choose "source".   The meta tags will be near the top of the document between the <head> </head> tags. 

Web Site Content
Our prices are based on you providing the content for your web site.  We will take your existing brochures, literature, manuscripts, etc. and assemble your site from the printed information you provide.   We do not write content for web sites or re-write from your materials - unless your content is really horrible - them we may make suggestions. 

Links Page
A "Links page" (a page that has a list of links to other relevant web-sites) is considered a "secondary page" and is billed as such. This is based on you providing the links that you wish to have on the page.   We can work with you and provide suggestions if you require assistance.

A deposit of 1/2 the quoted price (payable in US funds) is sometimes required to begin a design project.  Once the site is underway, hosting will be established and completed files uploaded for your review and to check the work in progress.

Several clients have come to the us telling horror stories of how they gave a "web-designer" money for a site - upfront - and then never heard from that person again and never getting what was promised.  It distresses us to hear these stories, and we hear them often. 

Even if you choose not to use our services, please NEVER PAY THE ENTIRE FEE UPFRONT!  Make an initial deposit, but make sure the site is live and hosted and to your satisfaction prior to the final payment.  Also make sure your domain name is registered in YOUR NAME and not that of the person or company designing your site.

The Oakland Web will NEVER ask you for the full quoted funds prior to job completion. 
We only expect the final bill to be paid when work is completed
