Theme Park Designer in Shenzhen, China Total Price: $1100 USD
This client provides design services for: theme parks, resorts, zoos, apartment complexes, products and more. The one kicker is that the majority of his clients are large Chinese corporations. Obviously he needed a Chinese language website.
Also, when the client came to me he had experienced some problems with his previous website and domain. Some bad, outdated "cookie cutter" code had been used on his old website. and his previous site had been hacked. What's more, Google had identified it as such and was not listing it. For many the solution would be too just "throw away" his old domain and website and just start afresh with both a new domain and a new website. The problem is that the domain used to have great SEO value and was originally registered in 2001. Mr. Smith had hundreds of clients, family, friends, links, social media posts and other contacts that either knew about the site, or pointed to that specific domain name. Nearly two decades of experience and investment in the domain could not be thrown away. I contacted Google and went through their procedure of uploading and verifying codes to the site's root to fix the problem. After about three weeks of going back and forth with Google I fixed the problem and the huge red "warning" screen that was appearing when users of Google chrome attempted to go to the site. Among the steps I took were registering his domain with my own personal Google webmaster account. And of course I totally recoded and entirely brand new site for him.
This problem often presents itself when large numbers of people are stacked up on anonymous cheap hosting platforms with do-it-yourself website builders. There are huge numbers of scripts on these platforms that often become outdated or a way to hack one of them is discovered, but the code is not updated/patched. It can also happen when you hire someone to build your website who is not a full-fledged computer programmer.
