Optimize Your Images For Better Results

Thu, 11 May 2017 04:44:31 +0000

Without a doubt, using images on your website is a good thing. There are people who just want text, facts and figures but then there are people like myself, who enjoy the visual representation of things. Using an image can enhance the user experience of your content and should be used.  However, accordingly to Google, images […]

Mobile First – So Says Google

Tue, 09 May 2017 06:18:19 +0000

Back in November, Google has announced that they were experimenting with making their website search index mobile-first.

The fact that content differs […]

Mailchimp Makes Automation Tools Available To All

Wed, 03 May 2017 06:01:30 +0000

Mailchimp has made their automation tools available to all Mailchimp users. This is a fantastic step for businesses that are still using the Free Mailchimp service.

Protecting Your Website Against Hackers

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 10:31:18 +0000

Let’s face it. When you have a website, there are those out there who will try to hack it. Why? Sometimes the purpose is malicious and sometimes, the purpose is ‘just because they can’.  Whatever the reason, the outcome is always annoying and often detrimental to your business. One of the most ‘hacks’ we see are […]

Will Your Site Be Marked As Insecure?

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 03:01:46 +0000

Back in October 2016, Google announced that Chrome 56 would mark non-secure pages containing password and credit card input fields as Not Secure in the URL bar. This is a good thing – it means that pages where sensitive information is shared – usernames, passwords, credit card details that aren’t using an end to end encryption […]

Gamify Your Membership Site

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 05:52:40 +0000

In doing some work for a new website recently, I was asked about a way to award points for interacting with the site. My client had looked at the MyCred WordPress Plugin and, I have to say, it’s pretty damn good. If you’re looking for a way to reward your members for interacting with your site, […]

Ransom Ware: Protect Yourself

Sat, 16 May 2015 21:19:34 +0000

Ransom ware is dreadful stuff.  Ransom wear is a virus (basically) that encrypts the contents of your computer. The hackers then request money to unlock it. When I say ‘the contents of your computer’, it is highly possible that it will operate across your computers harddrive, any attached drives (USBs, portable drives etc) and networked […]

Unsolicited Commercial Email And Your Business Obligations

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 00:17:34 +0000

With Canada introducing their new anti spam law (CASL), I thought it would be worthwhile reviewing what a business needs to be aware of when using Email Marketing. Spam Spam, whilst it is a lunch meat, tends to be used as a catch all phrase that means unwanted or junk email or messages that are unwanted (think […]

Images are an integral and very important part of any website.  Images help set the look and feel of the site; as well as being a great way to deliver information to your readers.  One of the questions I’m often asked is “can I use this image?”  The answer is quite simple – you can […]

Chrome sends your passwords to Google?

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 01:02:58 +0000

On twitter the other day, I saw the status “WTF? #Chrome now *by default* sends all of your passwords to #Google so now I have to change all my pwds. FFS Google”.  Being concerned about privacy and a Chrome user, I checked it out and the complaint was that Chrome shares passwords with Google by […]
