Website Speed and Server Security

They are work hand in hand.

By fine tuning the speed of the website the files on the website like scripts and themes (style sheets/css) are being optimized as well. This will usually mean that they are getting enhanced security and updates in the process.

Having a nice looking website is important but having a secure site that loads fast and that is a step ahead of your competition is vital to having the strategic edge in this competitive market place.

An effective website performance process can be 100s of steps long and take months to accomplish.

On a basic site it can be done in as little as a day if everything is in place to have the work done.

Don’t let these things get overlooked or put off for too long. They should be done during the development process so that the same steps don’t have to be done more than once.

Future Relevancy or Page Rank?

Page RankWith all the talk about search engines and relevancy, I came up with some interesting thoughts that I wanted share about where I believe the search engines are heading concerning basic Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
Trying to stay ahead of the search engines, which is nearly impossible, I’ve been trying to look to the future of SEO while creating web pages following the guidelines of the major search engines.
One of the largest problems the major search engines are dealing with is Search Engine Spam, Adsense Spam, and “Spammy Pages” such as keyword stuffing to gain higher rankings. In guidelines from Google, they mention write your pages for the users, not for the search engines. This statement alone, is a little prediction of the future of what is coming. And in order to stay ahead of the curve with some long term planning, I am suggesting we should take this to heart, and stop using the older SEO methods that eventually will hurt us.
Websites are being currently being penalized and dropped from years of top rankings for not adapting to the search engines guidelines and continuing to use SEO methods of years ago.
In thinking in terms of long-term success to maintain high rankings for each of the major search engines, through about as much research as you do online, I have came up with a few guidelines to the basic SEO ideas for the future.
One of the most important aspect for the search engines, and what I have seen and predict will have more importance is website copywriting. We’ll this is nothing new, we all know website copywriting is important, may as high at 45% of our copywriting contributes to our page rank. This will always remain important, and I believe will become even more important to high as 85% of what our website says will contribute to our page ranking in the future, as a shift from the search engine giving higher ranking from a technical aspect to more of a informational or relevancy aspect.
Eliminating some of the currently used technical aspects may maintain higher ranking in the coming future. Let me explain some of the commonly abused technical SEO habits currently, that I believe is headed toward extinction.a. Keyword Meta tags. This tag alone is open to elimination due to the common abuse methods such as keyword stuffing. Most major search engines generally ignore this tagline currently.b. ALT tags are another tagline that is just in the beginning stages of being eliminated. Some search engines have been experimenting with ignoring ALT tags and have found out that pages indexed without ALT tags are returning higher relevancy results. Again like the Meta tags, ALT tags have been abused to such from as keyword stuff.c. The two Meta tags that will gain in importance will be the Title tag and Description tag. A title and description taglines accurately representing a well written website copy write will enhance your page’s relevancy.
I am not suggesting that today that we immediately stop using the successful technical SEO currently in place, but the gradual elimination of this technique as the search engines stop using each method. Personally, I no longer include the Keyword Meta taglines on my web pages, and will continue to remove useless html as that become irrelevant.
In summary, my opinion is that future SEO standards will be more focused on good copywriting and less on technical aspects such as Meta taglines, Alt taglines, Headings to gain a higher page rank, or should I say higher relevancy.

ICE: Sometimes a visit to their office is required or time on a telephone to deal with their support staff. In these situations an hourly charge applies.

Extend the wifi range on almost any property by adding these simple plug into the wall or electrical outlet type devices.

Well we all have some need for this one right?!

Here’s the deal: After making a trip in person I’ve discovered one thing: These just need to be bought from San Jose and there is usually a 48 hour wait to get them here. They cost between $30-$60 for a quality Linksys or other reputable brand name. Good price considering everything!

There are 2 types of repeaters. One requires that the repeater be connected to a router with a network cable. Not a great solution so I will make sure that these are not being sold or installed unless specifically requested. A couple of people got these and I’m working on getting them replaced.

Cost of product plus $50-$100 install depending on level of complication with existing WiFi environment

Inter Galactic Cyber Marketing Frenzied Extravagana

If you are looking for a way to improve your digital marketing efforts, here are 10 of the highest performing strategies that can bring more people to your website, allow you to connect with new or returning customers, and create a digital marketing strategy that works.

Use the Right Web Design​​

We don’t often think about web design as a marketing tactic, but it can influence the amount of time and attention a user will spend on your page. Your website is the center of all your digital marketing efforts, so if your page is not clean, easy to read, and interesting, it won’t matter how much time you put into strategy development – you’re still going to lose customers. Create a website that is up-to-date, attention-grabbing, and most of all, mobile friendly.

Utilize Search Engine Marketing and Optimization

Search engine marketing and optimization allow your name and website to appear on a list of search engine results. With a strong SEO strategy, your company website will become associated with the keywords used to find your services. This increases your chances of being the company an individual chooses to work with when selecting a company that offers your services or products.

Utilize Affiliate and Associate Programs

An affiliate or associate program doesn’t make sense for every business. However, if you do use these, you can quickly see your marketing efforts improve without needing to do much yourself. With an affiliate program, people who believe in your company can share your information and grow your market on a commission-based platform.

Use a Coach or Consultant

If you’re not an expert in digital and internet marketing, ask someone who is. There are hundreds of internet marketing coaches and consultants available to you, many of whom can give you a consultation about what you should change to see success. For small business owners who need to focus on other business systems, a coach or consultant can be extremely helpful.

Use Email Marketing

It isn’t enough to just send out emails. You will want to consider various email lists that cater to the specific needs of each individual and can present a personalized approach to your campaign. Take a hard and clear look at the purchasing habits of your customers and use that information to develop your strategy.

Use an Opt-In Email List

An opt-in email list allows customers to come to you and sign up to receive email campaigns and correspondence. This allows you to connect with new customers or clients.

Use Articles or News Stories

Having your name and information listed in other locations on the web can help you grow your company and business. This makes your name visible in an area where customers and clients are already looking and also allows you to become a trusted source of products or services.

Write Online Press Releases

When you use online press releases, you’re getting your information out there in a formal setting. This allows newspapers, blogs, or other media sources to see your information and write posts about your company without you needing to put in the effort to connect and claim a story.

Use Contests and Giveaways

People love contests and giveaways. Anytime you can encourage marketing from your customers in exchange for a free product or service, you will usually see a surge in purchases or connections.

Maintain a Blog

Your blog should be used for a number of reasons, including allowing you to consistently post new keywords and optimize your search engine strategy. More than that, your blog becomes somewhere you can offer advice, share bits of information, and really connect with your customers.

A lasting relationship begins with trust and your blog is a great way to build that.

A strong online marketing strategy will help you to boost your business and start seeing more customers, connections, and clients. These 10 strategies have been proven to help companies gain new exposure. By following the above tips you’ll be on your way to creating a concrete internet marketing strategy that could boost your business substantially.

Website Security Audits with Ongoing Scheduled Assessments Revisions

Do we design websites? No.
Do we design solutions that include websites? Yes.

The website is like a hammer and nails in construction. It’s tough to build a business with an Internet presence if you don’t have a website. A website however isn’t just a simple design that gets launched and is suddenly successful.

A website is an extension of a business that gets customized over time based on the way that its users are going to use it most productively.

This is where designing a website is also an intervention by someone who can assess the way a business functions and help the website function in a way that will be easiest to manage by the staff and management.

Let’s say for example you want to have profiles of your employees online. What if you have high turnover and those employees have a presence in multiple parts of your website? For this you want to have a centralized profile system that is easily managed by a middle income staffer. This small task alone will save your company money and hassle when simple adjustments can be done by someone other than a high paid programmer.

Building a business that will utilize the potential of the internet can have a lot of surprises. Building your website can involved 100s of scenarios like the one above and are usually only implemented by someone who sees that a simple task might have a more economical long term solution during the building process.

With so many things that need to be considered the design process becomes an evolution of contributions by the people who use the website. One way to attack this is to focus on getting all of the live information on the website, providing the most critical functions to run the business (online) and then make adjustments in a system that can be made over time. This allows a website to evolve fluidly and become a more secure, high performance, asset to the company, it’s users and it’s owners.

Will the average person with even the highest level of intelligence be prepared for things that are avoided by those with applicable experience? Share the journey into the unknown with a Cyber guide. Someone who can point out the things that are waiting in the shadows.

Every project has surprise expenses because there will always be something that can be done to modify a plan that is already in action. Even changing the same transmission on the same car 10 times can introduce a few variants to a simple task.

You are not indestructible and neither is your business but you can make your business more safe by making smart and educated choices.

What’s our point? Leave it to the pros.

Security Audits

During this building process there will be areas that should be addressed which can produce security holes in primary and secondary processes. A primary process would be something like a contact form or simple interaction on the website which does not have a secure connection or somehow creates a security hole.

A secondary process is when someone created a secure connection to your website but is using a company email address that has vulnerabilities that allow someone else to use a weak email due to low password standards. A weak authentication system can go all the way back to a person’s desktop/laptop in their home behind a VPN that is connected to the company’s home server. Every step of this usage process has to be examined and installed in a way that even the users who are the least tech savvy can handle meeting the minimum system requirements for security without the need to study computer science. This responsibility goes back to the person building the site and who will make sure all of these things are considered. They will also need to be taught to staff and rules of the security requirements have to be enforced.

Enforcing rules will be the least common denominator to the security vulnerabilities not the cool SSL certificate on your website.

For the average company a typical security audit and implementation with training or supporting documentation can take 3-12 months depending on cooperation and level of complication.

3 Great and Reasonably Priced headsets for cell phones, music and computer use.

These 3 of 4 sets are being used every day in my office for a combination of work needs. They each serve their own purpose and after such a long time trying to find a quality headset with decent noise cancellation and low impedence I found these not so expensive sets which are just great! So great I had to share them with the audience(s).

All 3 headsets are Durable. Not break proof durable but not flimsy. So far in my tough weather environment with dust, rain, water, moisture, jungle elements, they are holding up very well.


I LOVE these. GREAT when you’re not trying to eliminate background noise, and when you don’t have to be aware of your own background sounds. (If you’re not trying to babysit a crying baby they are OK otherwise go towards the one ear headset for awareness of your surroundings. Of course, at a low volume you can hear things around you besides your phone call or music

FYI: Not OK for driving <illegal>.

Easy to adjust Volume control and great quality. Comfortable too.

2.) Gaming Headset BliGli Badasheng Wired Stereo Noise Cancelling Gaming Headphones for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Laptop with Detachable Microphone (Blue) 

GREAT FOR MUSIC! And KICKASS for phone calls. I wear these as much as I can but they’re not something you can throw in a fanny pack or be mobile. Best for office and home use but GREAT sound on both ends especially for the great price.



3.) Voistek Wired Cell Phone Headset with Noise Canceling Boom Mic & Adjustable Headband for iPhone Samsung LG HTC Blackberry Huawei ZTE Mobile Phone & Smartphones with 3.5mm Headphone Jack (A1H10DJ35) 

Great so you can still hear what’s going on around you with good noise cancellation for the person you’re calling to hear less of your background noise and volume control. Comfortable and lightweight to wear.
