Is your Computer Virus Protection up to date?

What is a computer virus? Computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation. A virus might corrupt or delete data on your computer, use your e-mail program to spread itself to other computers, or even erase everything on your hard disk.

Viruses are often spread by attachments in e-mail messages or instant messaging messages. That is why it is essential that you never open e-mail attachments unless you know who it's from and you are expecting it. Viruses can be disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files. Viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet. They can be hidden in illicit software or other files or programs you might download.

To help avoid viruses, it's essential that you keep your computer current with the latest updates and antivirus tools, stay informed about recent threats, run your computer as a standard user (not as administrator), and that you follow a few basic rules when you surf the Internet, download files, and open attachments. Once a virus is on your computer, its type or the method it used to get there is not as important as removing it and preventing further infection. (Microsoft Security, 2009)

Contact us if you would like us to update your virus protection or clean-up any existing virus or problems with your PC or Mac.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)/Submission to Search Engines

SEO is the process of improving the volume or quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via "natural" or un-paid ("organic" or "algorithmic") search results as opposed to search engine marketing (SEM) which deals with paid inclusion (pay-per-click). Typically, the earlier (or higher) a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine. SEO considers how search engines work and what people search for. Optimizing a website primarily involves editing its content and HTML and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines. www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Search engine optimization.

We design and update sites with the Search Engines' requirements in mind. ALL of the sites that we design/update and host have the basic required information in the web site code for the Search Engines; this includes appropriate META tags, key text throughout the site, no pages that are only image files (most Search Engines don't like only images on pages), and more....
We also submit sites using Search Engine Submission software to over 300 search engines including Google, Yahoo and other major search engines.
We currently submit sites after the design/update is completed. If you would like to be on a schedule to submit your site a few times a year, please contact us.

We can also provide more detailed Search Engine Optimization, a SEO Report and Search Engine Ranking Report. Please contact us for more information.
