Search Engine Optimization

If you’ve investigated our home page, you’ll have seen information on what is called SEO.  It’s really a misnomer, although there still are three major ‘Search Engines’ where people will find you on the internet, and Search Engine Optimization is how you get noticed by people searching for you.  

Google is obviously the most used and the biggest search engine, but there are still Bing (Microsoft) and of course Yahoo as well as a number of smaller ‘engines’, some of which search for specific things. Content is what brings people to your site, but there are tips and tricks to the SEO trade.

The search is only the start.  You’ve probably heard of tags and keywords.  That’s not so much the way it’s done anymore.  There is a method to the madness, and it involves how Google and Bing ‘rank’ you.  Basically it’s a popularity contest and a struggle to become the ‘authority’ on any given subject.  It’s about back links and no-follows and references to and from other sources.  Talk to us, our staff members have worked for Google, we know a lot about how it’s done.  If others tell you they are the experts, they’re wrong, there is no such thing.  It’s an art form; it’s a moving target that requires constant adjustments in your aim.  What worked last week, won’t work today.

If we maintain your content, we will make you show up in the search engines. If you maintain your content, we’ll share the secrets of the mysterious SEO…

Social Networking

The Vortex

Social Networking and Social Media are some of the latest tools used for internet marketing.  Your web site will have icons for every media platform you engage in.   We are able, through the social ‘channels’, to get you likes, followers, connections, pins, snaps, shares, videos, tweets and votes.  But unlike elsewhere, you can’t buy these.  Purchasing Facebook likes won’t get you to the real people who you’re trying to reach with your message, product or service.  It takes a lot work.  

In order to get recognized in the social media, you’ll need a Facebook, a YouTube channel, a LinkedIn account, at least one Twitter account, a Google+ account, Pinterest and a host of other ‘billboards’ across the web.  If you’d like our help, we can do it for you or we can teach you or your staff how to do it.  Either way, if effort is applied, your presence will rise in the Google ratings and you’ll create that Vortex where ‘viral’ really means something.

Social media will help you get recognized as an authority on whatever your web site offers.  If you’d like our help, we will add it to your tab.  All the social sites can be used to enhance your message and how your customers and members find you. We can make it happen!



One Site Fits All

You’ll hear the term ‘Responsive’ when someone refers to a web site.  Let’s face it. Everyone uses smart phones these days. In fact, over 50% of site users visit from mobile devices, and more and more are being used every day.  That means if your site is not responsive, you’ll lose half of your traffic.

So, what does this whole “responsive” thing have to do with it? Responsive design means that we approach design and development with the idea that the site we create for you must respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation. In layman’s terms, whether it be a phone, pad, tablet or desktop computer, your site is going to be easy to use and it’s going to look fantastic.


Why Word Press?  Well, if you know anything about blogging you’ve heard of WordPress.  But what about other web presences besides blogging?  WordPress is used EVERYWHERE!  

What is WordPress really?  It’s a computer program; it’s web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog.  Technically WordPress is a combination of PHP Programming, HTML, style sheets and a database that all come together into a thing of beauty.  If you go to the  website, they will tell you it is both free and priceless at the same time.  Free you ask?  Well, yes.  The software itself is free, but you’ll need to spend a little money for a domain name and someone to host your WordPress site.   If you need a blog, and you’d like it up quickly, will let you set up a totally free site, but to really take advantage of the internet you’ll need those other two things; a name and a place to live.  Your domain and your hosting company.

So for five to ten dollars a month and a ten dollar name investment, you are on your way.  But wait, there’s more.  Indeed so much more, that you’ll need a guide.  That’s us.  Call us for more information, for some free advice, and possibly a partner in your new venture.  Check us out and we’ll tell you exactly Why WordPress for your web site.  

You’ll hear ads for things like Wix and ImCreator and and they suggest you can do all this stuff for free.  Can you?  Yes.  Do you want to?  Well, give it a try sometime, its not a simple as the free site creators would have you believe.  When you’ve had enough frustration, you’ll probably want some help.
