We design websites for our clients regularly from Website Templates, using a template design allows our client to have a good idea of what their website will look like, and at the same time, because we have not spent hours designing website pages from scratch, we can charge a lost less for our website design service.
Modern web site templates from the best website design houses, comply with state of the art website coding and architecture as laid out by w3.org - the compliance body to try to make all designers and internet developers and operators work to the same standards and rules.
That doesn't mean that your website will cease to be noticed by the search engines, because your page designs are older than the most recent designs, or cease to operate after a while, if that were the case most websites today may be considered obsolete.
A case in question is one of our oldest website customers, whose website design frankly has old fashioned architecture will lots of tables in its web pages, and like anything that's been around a while, has collected some bumps and scrapes along the way.
However, the fact that it has been around a long time means it has also collected lots of incoming links.
You also need good content on your website pages, which give details of the services you offer, with a fair sprinkling of key words, such as Bolton and web designer or website designers, designs, etc.,
If you have a page with only a few words on it is less likely to be treated as important by the search engines. Equally so if the words on your web page are not relevant.
If you want to get noticed on the internet there are a few basic steps you can take. Find a domain name for your company that reflects what you are doing. if you are a website designer in Bolton, then a good website name would be- for instance- webdesignersbolton.com, if someone typed a search for an web designer in Bolton, you should come up well into the searches.
When you are looking for a hosting company (we offer website hosting solutions) try to ensure that the company is reputable and does not host unfavourable websites, as if you find yourself with the same ip address as a company which you would not wish to be associated with, and the search engines may have black listed for spamming etc., is could impact on your own websites visibility; we are very careful about the clients we offer website hosting to for that very reason.

Pick a good name for your website domain, it will help, it also helps if you aim your keywords at the niche market, with a sprinkling of the less likely ones which you competition hasn't thought of.
If you sell dog collars, but specialise in cast irons dog collars, perhaps an extra domain name incorporating cast iron dog collars would be a good idea.
