1 Bing seems to be getting a lot better at ranking websites, well a lot better for our search engine optimisation team, and thats all that really matters in the world of Webbuilt4u seo.
We have been working with Louise and her gang of graphic designers for a while now and we have been getting some nice result. And then I was just doing her ranking checks this morning and we noticed that she has now got extremely good results in the Bing Search engine.
2 From time to time we are going to tell you a little bit about our clients, and how they are getting on in the Search engines after coming to us asking for help. is a small company based in Essex, which offers personal one to one advice on various subjects such as quitting smoking, losing weight and generally feeling better about yourself.
The main Keyphrase that they wanted to rank for was “personal trainer Essex” and magically inside a year, we have achieved a 1000% increase in visitor numbers to the site
3 Google have finally rolled out the latest update to their magnificent Google Analytics software. There’s a lot too take in, but as we are about too send out a newletter, I’ve been having a play with tracking the code through the new URL builder.
You can view the new November newsletter here, when we send the newsletter out we will be adding all these fancy new links to track exactly what customers and potential customers are doing on our website.
4 Google hosted threw open its doors to the Joomla Community this week, god knows why, I’m not a fan of it. Its bloated and is akin to making a cake with a cement mixer. Far too much power for the average office worker who updates the company website, we’ve done a few Joomla websites though, despite My opinion on them, as the Custome is always right. Well sometimes they are right.
5 Youtube to lose all the decent stuff – New owners of Youtube, Google have indicated that the bandwidth hungry video sharing site will be implementing copyright protection filters very soon/ How will this effect Youtube? well is going to stop me going on there for one. If the site becomes exclusively the home of content created by its users its going to be a pretty boring affair. Who wants to watch opinions from some 12 year old emo on the state of her favorite depressing band.
So that means. NO music videos, NO episodes of tv shows, no Interviews from TV programmes, and NO sports highlights such as these absolute gems from last night.
6 One of our clients is a screen printer, well they do lots of things actually including Health and safety signs, T-shirts, lables and Mugs. They came to Webbuilt4u before my time here. At the end of 2006.We redesigned their website from something that that didn’t look very professional Into the new website here, which I’m sure you’ll agree looks miles better.I did my initial checks on the recently relaunched site back on the 22nd Feb, I changed a few things. Added the site to google webmaster tools, dropped a few links here and there, changed the titles, descriptions and the site structure and left it alone for a month, and came back too check the rankings today. (as one of our clients, you receive monthly web rankings reports) We were extremely pleased with what we found as the rankings had all improved massively.
