Louisville Web Nerds Will Design, Build, Support, and Maintain Your Small Business Website
(without locking you into an annoying contract)
WordPress Website Design, Without Overspending
Louisville Web Nerds exists because small businesses need high-quality WordPress website design without overspending.
We’ll take care of everything to get your small business website up and running. Plus, we’ll provide ongoing support if you need it, or not if you don’t. You can be as involved as you’d like along the way so you’ll be sure to get exactly what you want for your business.
We’ll Design It, Build It, Then Support It
One of our most popular services is our WordPress support plans. Starting at just $99 a month you can have a reliable web expert to call on any time, giving you the peace of mind to focus on running your business.
We’ll monitor and update your WordPress website on a weekly basis to keep it fast, secure, optimized, and updated with the latest software releases. We’ll implement website best practices, such as SSL, database optimization, and more, as well as handle routine content and code updates, all for a predictable flat monthly rate.
We Can Also Help With Your SEO
A common misconception in this business is if you build a website, you’ll automatically get flooded with new website traffic and leads overnight. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t work that way.
Generating traffic to a website takes either time, money, or a combination of both. We know that most business owners would rather be running their business than messing with their website. We’ll work with you to optimize your website for search engines, set up your Google business page, setup keyword monitoring, optimize your current content, and create new content. Through consistent effort, we’ll help you climb the rankings and get free traffic from search engines.
We Also Offer A Variety of Other Services You Might Need As Well
From hosting to SEO to hourly consulting and more, we offer a variety of services to help you manage your digital presence.

About The Owner
Owner of Louisville Web Nerds
Hey. I’m Cody Wheeler, owner of Louisville Web Nerds, husband, and father of two amazing kids. Originally I’m from southern Indiana but have since migrated east to the Middletown area of Louisville, KY.
I’ve been building websites since the early 2000s, from hobby websites to personal blogs to small business websites, all the way up to enterprise-level websites with tens of millions of users.
I started while building an IT consulting business in the early 2000s as I was working on my degree from Indiana University, and continued as I worked on my Master’s Degree. The rest of the story is how Louisville Web Nerds was eventually born.

WordPress runs over 40% of the Internet, which makes it a target for attackers for many reasons. Fortunately, WordPress is incredibly flexible and has an incredible amount of community support, so there are several ways to make it more robust and secure using free plugins. Here are two simple WordPress security methods you should be using on your website to prevent it from being compromised. This isn’t everything you should be doing, but these methods are very simple and very effective. Use Two-Factor Login WordPress Security Two-Factor authentication has become far more common in the last several years. This method…
One of the reasons WordPress is used so widely (40% of websites) is because of its extensive plugin library. As I write this post, it has over 55,000 free plugins, and thousands of more premium plugins, all created by skilled (and some not-so-skilled) software developers. Not all of these plugins are created equal though. Some are great. Some… not so much. When choosing the plugins to use on your WordPress site, you need to be careful to choose trusted plugins that have a higher number of installations, solid reviews, and are well supported. Otherwise, it’s easy to get in trouble…
One of my pet peeves is when web designers, developers, and agencies build a WordPress website for a small business, and then leave it behind to be unsupported. Think of your website like your house. You can’t just build and then never maintain it. Eventually life will pass it up and it’ll fall apart. Websites work the same way. The Internet is constantly and rapidly evolving. Just in the past 18 months as I write this post, WordPress has completely upgraded to a new editor and made massive strides in how its software operates. Yet, millions of websites have been…
A domain name is the address of your website (louisvillewebnerds.com, for example). You should always own and control your domain name. It’s the #1 asset you need to own to make sure your website is always yours. Not the hosting. Not even the website itself. It all comes down to your domain name. Here’s why. Over the course of my 15+ year web career, I’ve run into several situations where website owners lost control of their domain name. They either had to go through a legal hassle and shell out a lot of money to get it back, had to…
When you run a business building and supporting WordPress websites, you see just about every type of website you can imagine, and one thing is almost always the same. The simpler websites are usually the better ones, especially with WordPress. Photo by Sarah Dorweiler, Evano Community One of the strengths of WordPress is that is has a powerful plugin library that will allow you to extend the core functionality of the platform far beyond what comes with it. But that can also be a weakness, because the more pieces of software, addons, plugins, etc that you use, the more complex, insecure,…
