HTTPS or HTTP?

How your site’s appearance would be influenced if you switch from HTTP to HTTPS?

If by design HTTPS (SSL) is slower than HTTP this wouldn’t hurt your appearance in Google even if the Search machine focuses on the speed. HTTPS is a secure encrypted version of HTTP and is good thing for users if you provide payment system on your site. Google is working on improving the appearance speed when HTTPS.

You don’t need to worry about being penalized because of the speed when HTTPS.

If you want to have a secure site from the beginning it is a good time to switch to HTTPS.

Take care!

Link building using emails

Get links from your users by forcing them to subscribe for your email newsletter.

You can find a lot of different strategies but, here are some tips:

- build your email subscriber list, by having a subscription form on your website. Ask for their name and email. Ask for as little as possible, but ask for their name to personalize their email message;

- send newsletters regularly, but not every day to avoid frustrated users;

- remove the email addresses of these who don’t read their emails as you don’t want to be reported for spam.

- share embeddable content;

- ask for their links after you became into a likeable brand;

Good luck!

New SSL implementation from Google

These days Google revealed they are working on secure search, the SSL search, using https:// protocol.

If you are signed in your Google account and make a search query in Google.com, your query won’t be accessed at Webmaster tools of people’s sites you are visiting.

But if you are signed out, your query will be viewed. Anyway if you are paying Google you will be able to view the referral information.

Alternative ways for collecting data are still Bing and Yahoo tools.

Local complaints…

Hi, there! Here we have a local complaint about Reach Local web services. From where to begin?

First we start with rude sales person who uses unappropriate words while speaking with future customers. They usually come to your office or house and promise you to optimize your web store or web site for less money than you are now paying to other company if so. They offer 3 months contract for more than $1000 but there aren’t any of the promised results usually. If you start calling them to review your paying plan or you want  a charge back, there isn’t any answer or even worse – they will enjoy the frustration they caused to you and they will laugh at your face.

Please, check other opinions on the web and DO NOT start dealing with them!

Take care!
