You may be asking yourself; what does this mean for me? And more importantly, how does this benefit my online ordering system?
To be able to order from your restaurant online, your customers need to be able to find you online. This is why food ordering websites should be designed with Search Engine Optimization or as it’s more widely known, ‘SEO’, in mind.
Good SEO will help your website get found on search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing without any need for payment.
Getting found on search engines is the key to being found online by new and potential customers in your locality. Plus, SEO is just as important for making sure that those that already know you can find you online. This is becoming increasingly important as customers manage more and more of their lives online. So when your customer wants to find you to order food, they can do this online thanks to your strong search engine performance.

Don’t worry, with Flipdish you get a fully search engine optimized online ordering website, so all you need to do is enjoy getting more online orders.
With the new version of your Flipdish powered website, online ordering is still front and center. This is because online ordering is the most common reason visitors come to your website, and it is what’s driving profit in your business.

This is why, with our latest food ordering website design, you get our multi-page website. This allows customers to scroll through the landing page and navigate to other links on your website.
