In This Issue:
We'd like to congratulate Lounge Lizard for being the winner of this month's free hosting site. At the beginning of each month we will call up our own site's homepage. Whomever's site is the featured site when the page loads will get FREE hosting of one domain for one month. It's just our way of saying thank you.
Google has changed the way they provide search results.
They noticed they had a number of types of information (they call silos)
that could be searched vertically but that there was little cross
information. For instance, they had their list of Web sites, they also had
map information, and picture information, etc. but there was no way to
combine it all this information (horizontally). Google has changed that now.
How does this affect you? Well, the more places (silos) your business shows up, the higher your site's ranking.
So now it's important to make sure your business shows up on Google Maps. Give your Web site (and business) a local presence through the Google Maps Local Business Center where local businesses can get a free basic listing to increase your site's ranking on Google. Get your business listed by going HERE.
We will be taking our annual vacation the last week of June and into the first few days of July. Of course we take our laptops with us (comm'on...we're geeks) and will continue to work (some), but it's primarily a vacation. So you may notice a slight delay on non-urgent work requests until we return - bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!!
Help these folks by visiting their site. All ya'll will remember how hard it is to get those initial "hits" so the search engines notice your site. So take a minute and visit their site.
