Coming up with a new password for different websites can be a pain, and is something that we have to do more and more often. Pretty much every website requires a password now, and for those of us who like to do absolutely everything online, password security is a big deal. Someone getting ahold of my passwords would give them access to virtually my whole life – my online banking, bills, and lots of shopping sites.
How many of us have moved our communication primarily to the Internet or to text messages? I know I have. I used to dread making phone calls because you never knew if the person was going to pick up, and then you might have to leave a dreaded voicemail, in which you might blather on like a moron because you forgot why you called. Not that I’ve ever done that or anything.
The joke is that Al Gore invented the Internet, right? So who technically owns it? Good question and I’m sure that a lot of different people have a lot of different answers. But…
Anyone who is even remotely familiar with how the Internet works understands the importance of keywords. You want to highlight words and phrases that people are searching for in search engines like Google. When your website is rich in keywords and key phrases, people are more likely to land on your site or blog rather than that of your competitors.
Oh Google+. You had great hopes to become the next big social media site. Has it happened yet? Well, not really.
Google+ is the social network brought to you by arguably the biggest Internet conglomerate of all time. When this brainchild of the Google brand was announced, many people thought it would be so successful that it could edge Facebook out of the social media market. While Google+ may be starting to catch up to Facebook on some fronts, it still has a very long way to go to compete with the original social media giant.
So you’ve decided to start a website for your business. You hire a designer, design a great looking site. You find a reputable company to host your site. You get a great URL. You go live with your site. So why isn’t your awesome website getting any traffic?
Usually the answer is simple; people can’t find you! Just because your site is out there on the web doesn’t mean that it is easy to find and will show up in search results immediately. Sure, your friends, family and colleagues may read your site, but you’ll need more traffic than that to get notices.
These days, everyone has their “device” of choice. There’s always been a great divide of sorts when it comes to people who favor Apple products versus those who prefer PCs. Now, there are so many different types of tablets, laptops, smart phones, and desktop computers.
In an office setting, it’s nearly impossible to please everyone when it comes to technology. Everyone is used to using their own devices at home and may be loyal to one platform over another. Personally, if you handed me any smartphone other than an iPhone, it would take me a while to figure it out, whereas I have friends who are loyal to their Android powered phones or Blackberries.
