Restaurant and Bar Websites

If your current website has a menu and it is not in text format, but an image file or pdf file, then you may be missing out on a substantial opportunity for search engines. Search engines cannot read image files or pdf files. Further when menu images or pdf files are viewed on a mobile device they sometimes have to be downloaded or moved around on your mobile device making it difficult to view the menu items.

So why do most website companies do this? It is cheaper for them to do this rather than convert it to regular text and put it on the website. It is also easier for them to update.  If they don't  do it this way, then they would have to charge you more for your website. 

We do not do this for menus unless,; requested by the customer or daily menu changes make it not feasible. Our websites with menus have them online in text format.
