Dutch websites and Dutch website design
Cornish services have designed websites in Dutch and have also provided Dutch search engine marketing to several different companies in different market areas such as B2B and tourism.
Websites in the Dutch language
The Dutch language uses the Latin character set. Like English, Dutch is written from left to right.
When converting websites from English to Dutch more room is usually required for the text, so this can impact on menus and general layout. Dutch words also tend to be longer which again can impact the visual appearance of the website. Many words used are the English words, especially in technical subjects and the Dutch in general are very good at English.
Issues when designing Dutch websites
The Dutch language code is NL for Netherlands.
Dutch website hosting
Dutch websites tend to be hosted in a large variety of countries, mostly European (eg Belgium, France, UK ,Germany) but also the US.
Dutch domain names
A Dutch domain name (.nl) is beneficial in terms of making the website look more Dutch to Dutch speakers and it also helps get higher rankings in the search engines.
Search Engine Marketing in Dutch
Cornish can provide different levels of search marketing in Dutch. For all websites we design we automatically submit these to Yahoo and Google. We are also able to offer varying levels of ongoing search engine marketing and paid search (PPC) advertising. For paid advertising the most important in the Netherlands is Google then Yahoo. We have experience of both SEO and PPC in the Dutch search markets for several clients.
We have provided search marketing, particularly paid search (AdWords) marketing for Dutch tourism websites.
