Why Architecture Matters?

The following photo is of The Winchester ‘Mystery’ House. This grand and quite unique house was built back in 1884 and took 147 builders 38 years to build.

Here are some quite unique facts about the house, it has:
  • 160 rooms
  • 40 bedrooms
  • 6 kitchens
  • 2 basements
  • 950 doors
However, there was NO Architect involved in the designing, planning and building of this house and as a result there are:
  • 65 doors to blank walls
  • 13 staircases abandoned
  • 24 skylights in floors
  • And – No architectural blueprints (although some rough drawings have been found on table clothes!)
At PushON we regularly receive requests for Website MOTs. It is a service we offer because so many websites on the internet have been built like The Winchester ‘Mystery’ House; they look good but have little or no functionality. Here are many of the things we find wrong with websites:
  • No inbound links to your website – Blank Doors
  • Poor navigation structures – Abandoned Staircases
  • Duplicate content on older sites - Skylights in Floors
An MOT is free and will give you a good overview of both your websites structure and online presence, along with some suggestions for improvement.

So if you’d like us to MOT Your Webiste drop by and let us help you make your website work for you.
