Ethical Comes First
We have built ethical practices and approaches into the very fabric of WebHolism, whether it’s our business practices, our SEO procedures, or how we approach building a new website.
Ethical Relationships and Business Practices
Your relationship with us is up to you
You’re met with kindness and friendliness
We’re here to make your life easier.
You hold the keys
You get fair pricing
This means that the methods we use and recommend are always above board with the search engines and are meant to help people. We follow the rules that Google and the other search engines have set forth, and we respect SEO as the long game that it truly is.
Strategies that fit into this category do not consider the welfare of your business long term. Additionally, “black hat” methods are typically unhelpful and unpleasant for your potential customers using Google or landing on your website. We wouldn’t touch “black-hat” SEO with a barge pole.
Building trust in your business and answering people’s questions will help your business win in the long run.
Read more about this in our SEO Basics Guide.
Ethical Website Work
We enable you to work with other developers, should you want to. We hope that you enjoy working with us (our clients do!), but if you’d like to work with other developers, we make sure that they can access the areas that they need.
We can also teach you how to edit and manage your own website so that you can avoid website developer fees altogether.
We love to do good, clean, robust work.
We don’t take shortcuts, and we provide thorough solutions that will last as long as possible for you.
Empowering our Clients
We want you and your business to thrive.
We feel successful when you are successful.
We are passionate about supporting you in whichever ways you need.
We have no secrets, and we absolutely love helping you manage your own website or SEO efforts.
We have lots of clients who are new entrepreneurs or have a business that’s only been going for a year or two. They are often on a shoestring budget and every cost saving measure can make a big impact. They really benefit from not having to pay a web developer for every little thing, and so we give them a little website or SEO training, and presto! They can manage without us, and put the saved money towards growing their business instead.

We’re carbon neutral.
We use solar panels to power our electrical knick knacks where possible.
We use green hosting.
We bank entirely with ethical financial institutions that do not promote suffering and environmental damage.
We carbon offset through tree planting with the Woodland Trust.
We give a minimum of 5% of our profits to environmental/social charities.

We are honoured to have worked with these remarkable companies.
Who Are We?
We have been passionate about SEO and websites for almost two decades.
WebHolism was started in 2006 and after a few years, Sara and Jason left their well-paying software support jobs to work full time on WebHolism, helping businesses get visible online.
Sara is our chief SEO and website trainer, and all-round SEO expert. She has a degree in Electrical Engineering, and before WebHolism she spent years in software support fixing problems for customers.
Got questions about SEO? Sara’s your gal.
Sharing knowledge so others can thrive.
Reduce, reuse, recycle.
Video games (Mario and Zelda are old friends).
Jason is our hardcore coder. In over a decade at WebHolism, there has never been a problem that Jason couldn’t solve.
With a degree in Computer Science and thousands upon thousands of hours of coding under his belt, if you’ve got a website or SEO issue that involves code, Jason’s your guy.
Eating organic & vegan.
Fitness & health.
Learning new things.
Nano joined Sara and Jason’s little family in 2019 when he was 6 and a half years old, from a rescue shelter in Spain. He’s a sweet, joyful Shih Tzu who would love nothing more than to say hello and try to make you smile.
Trying to (unsuccessfully) make friends with local cats.
Putting a smile on the face of every person he meets.
Spending time with his favourite toy, “Rabbit” (pictured) who is threadbare and only has one ear, but is incredibly beloved.
Lulu joined Sara and Jason’s little family in 2020 when she was about 2 years old (we don’t really know her age for sure, as she was abandoned), from a rescue shelter in Spain. She’s an affectionate, loving Maltese who will go bonkers when she meets you, and then will curl up in your lap or try to lick your ears (or toes).
Doing tricks for treats.
Curling up next to Sara and falling asleep.
Lying in the sunshine.
