Nebraska Digital was founded by John Rood, an experienced entrepreneur and former journalist, who has been helping companies to develop web sites since 1994.

"The work we can do for a small business customer with WordPress is pretty exciting," Rood said, "It provides a wonderful toolset that allows us to build cost-effective sites for our customers to keep pace or surpass competitors with much bigger budgets. WordPress levels the playing field and performs extremely well in Google and other search engines.”

A former reporter and editor, Rood was the first online manager at the Journal Star and later helped manage Lee’s internet division.

CMS means Content Management System, which is a fancy way of saying that you’ll be able to edit and manage your website without knowing much about editing or managing a website.

WordPress happens to be our favorite CMS, both to use and to work with. WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability.

We’ll install and set up WordPress for you, then design both the front and back ends to meet your needs. Your WordPress site can be whatever you want it to be.

We build sites that are easy to maintain, optimized for search engines and are Facebook and Twitter ready.
