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!

Professional keyword mapping

If you had the chance to build a SEO strategy while creating a website or before that, you would appreciate the chance to make it in your way. If your client has a clear idea what he wants to rank for and give you an opportunity to make it as you intend, this will work for sure.

Starting with filling a list of keywords to target, you would continue whit collecting a content based on what people intend, general info about any kw topic, single or multiple keyword page focus. And voila!

You build a content.  Of course you could use already existing website to optimize it with a new strategy if the website owner agree with you (sometimes the man factor is harder problem then a technical one).

I look forward to read your comments!

Improving the ads algorithm

Google is looking for too many ads on your page that distract from the main content.This is not a news actually, it is listed at Google’s list of questions for webmasters.The idea is sites with too many ads to be penalized.Be carefull! Ads may kill your site ranking.The good news is that Google is getting better at communication with webmasters.We also should know that page’s layout is getting more important in the future.

Custom web design vs WordPress

What would you prefer when starting your web site – custom build design or open source platform such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, others?

Do you feel thrill when start everything from zero and transform a customer idea in live project, or you are most likely to choose almost completed web site?

As usual the right answer is : It depends!

And most likely it depends on the needs and price your customer has chosen.  If he/she has very tight budget and can’t afford more than $ 200 lets say, it is better to choose the easiest and fastest low-cost way to build their web site, using WordPress.

If your client manages expanding business, he will need a big, professional and functional web site. Not that you can’t do it with WordPress, but if you are a  professional programmer you can build it yourself, of course for higher price.

It is very easy to have something available that everybody can use (even your child), but I believe it is more responsible and professional to build custom script systems.

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!
