Mobile-First Indexing by default for new domains

Google Webmaster Central Blog -

Over the years since announcing mobile-first indexing - Google's crawling of the web using a smartphone Googlebot - our analysis has shown that new websites are generally ready for this method of crawling. Accordingly, we're happy to announce that mobile-first indexing will be enabled by default for all new, previously unknown to Google Search, websites starting July 1, 2019. It's fantastic to see that new websites are now generally showing users - and search engines - the same content on both mobile and desktop devices! You can continue to check for mobile-first indexing of your website by using the URL Inspection Tool in Search Console. By looking at a URL on your website there, you'll quickly see how it was last crawled and indexed. For older websites, we'll continue monitoring and evaluating pages for their readiness for mobile first indexing, and will notify them through Search Console once they're seen as being ready. Since the default state for new websites will be mobile-first indexing, there's no need to send a notification. Using the URL Inspection Tool to check the mobile-first indexing status Our guidance on making all websites work well for mobile-first indexing continues to be relevant, for new and existing sites. For existing websites we determine their readiness for mobile-first indexing based on parity of content (including text, images, videos, links), structured data, and other meta-data (for example, titles and descriptions, robots meta tags). We recommend double-checking these factors when a website is launched or significantly redesigned. While we continue to support responsive web design, dynamic serving, and separate mobile URLs for mobile websites, we recommend responsive web design for new websites. Because of issues and confusion we've seen from separate mobile URLs over the years, both from search engines and users, we recommend using a single URL for both desktop and mobile websites. Mobile-first indexing has come a long way. We're happy to see how the web has evolved from being focused on desktop, to becoming mobile-friendly, and now to being mostly crawlable and indexable with mobile user-agents! We realize it has taken a lot of work from your side to get there, and on behalf of our mostly-mobile users, we appreciate that. We’ll continue to monitor and evaluate this change carefully. If you have any questions, please drop by our Webmaster forums or our public events. Posted by John Mueller, Developer Advocate, Google Zurich

What Makes WordPress Hosting Different?

InMotion Hosting Blog -

WordPress hosting can handle a variety of different websites, from the small static ones to large data-heavy websites with videos, images, and other fun stuff. This is possible because hosting companies offer different types of hosting. Each type offers benefits to different kinds of websites. As hosting plans can vary greatly, it is important to know which ones offer what, and what type of website they work best with. To do this, let’s go over the four main types of hosting plans for WordPress. Continue reading What Makes WordPress Hosting Different? at The Official InMotion Hosting Blog.

How to Update Your Old WordPress Posts With the Block Editor

DreamHost Blog -

Since the Block Editor is now the default tool for creating new WordPress content, site owners are having to address the question of what will happen to their older posts and pages. This content will inevitably need updating since the Classic Editor plugin won’t be around forever. Fortunately, there are methods in place for handling this exact situation. If you need to make changes to an old post, you can easily do so without any help from the Classic Editor. This makes it much easier to bring your old and new content into alignment. In this post, we’ll discuss the Block Editor (you might know it by its nickname: Gutenberg) and then we’ll show you two methods for updating your old posts using this new tool. Let’s get started! Understanding the Differences Between the Classic and Block Editors For many years, WordPress users created new content for their websites in a visual editor, now known as the Classic Editor. It consisted primarily of one large field where you could add text, images, and other media. The main downside to the Classic Editor was that some elements — such as tables and content columns — required coding or extra plugins to implement. This arguably made the publishing process more complicated and time-consuming than it needed to be. To address that issue, the Block Editor was created. It enables you to use a system of ‘blocks’ to create content in WordPress. Each block holds a specific type of content, such as a paragraph, an image, a table, a list, or just about any other element you might want to add to a post or page. With blocks, WordPress users can create more complex content without the need for coding. Each block has individual settings so you can customize specific elements. Additionally, you can more easily move content around the page to create columns or other unique layouts. Generally speaking, the Classic Editor is considered the ‘simpler’ of the two options because of its interface. There’s just one field where all of your content goes, as opposed to many separate blocks. However, the Block Editor is built for ease-of-use and can be more user-friendly — especially for those new to WordPress. Get More with DreamPressDreamPress Plus and Pro users get access to Jetpack Professional (and 200+ premium themes) at no added cost!Check Out Plans Switching Over from the Classic Editor to the Block Editor The Block Editor has been ‘live’ since December 2018 and now serves as the default editor for anyone running WordPress 5.0 or later. However, some users have chosen to disable it in order to continue using the old – or Classic – editor. If you’ve been using WordPress for some time and are familiar with the Classic Editor, using the Block Editor may not seem very appealing. After all, it still has compatibility issues with some plugins and themes, and learning a new interface isn’t the most fun way to use your time. However, there are a few reasons to embrace the change. To start with, the Block Editor should streamline your content creation. Once you get past the learning curve, adding blocks can be much faster than stopping to code a table or columns by hand. More importantly, you may want to make this transition for the sake of your site in the long term. While right now you can keep the Classic Editor in place using a plugin, WordPress plans to stop support for that system eventually. For now, support is promised until 2022. However, once updates are no longer being released, having this plugin installed on your site could pose a security risk. At a certain point, moving over to the Block Editor will be in the best interests of your website. What the Block Editor Means for Your Existing Content Fortunately, old posts and pages created in the Classic Editor are preserved in their current format with the Block Editor. Each one features a single, large block called a Classic block. All of your text, images, and other content will be found inside this block, unchanged. The Block Editor’s effect on your theme and plugins is a little more complicated. There have been compatibility issues between the new editor and some themes and plugins, so it’s possible that enabling it will cause problems on your site. In particular, page builders and other plugins that affect the way the WordPress editor looks and functions tend to have trouble with the Block Editor. However, updates have been released for many of these plugins to fix these issues. It’s a good idea to check each of your major plugins (especially any that affect the editor) to see if they are compatible. The Block Editor should be useable with just about any theme. That said, it works better with some than with others. Ideally, you’ll want to use a theme that has been updated for use with the Block Editor or a theme that was created after the new editor’s release and built with compatibility in mind. The best way to avoid any potential issues is to create a staging version of your site. Then you can thoroughly test for any problems before updating your live site. How to Update Your Old WordPress Posts With the Block Editor (2 Methods) Of course, you may not want to leave your old WordPress content as-is. Fortunately, you can update your old posts, pages, and other content types in the Block Editor. There are two primary methods you can use, and each has its pros and cons. Before you can use either of them, you’ll need to make sure you have the Block Editor enabled. For most sites, this is already the case.  In other words, if your site is up-to-date and you haven’t done anything to disable the Block Editor, it should be currently active. Therefore, you won’t need to do anything. Otherwise, either deactivate the Classic Editor plugin or upgrade to WordPress 5.0 or above to automatically switch your site over to the new editor. Then, you can use one of the following two techniques to work on your existing content. Method 1: Continue Editing Your Posts in a Classic Block As we described earlier, existing posts and pages will be converted into Classic blocks. If you want, you can edit your content inside these blocks, just as you would in the Classic Editor. All you have to do is open the post you wish to update, and click on the Classic block. When you do, you’ll see the TinyMCE toolbar appear at the top of the block. It should look very familiar. You can edit within this block exactly as you would in the Classic Editor. If you need to access the Text Editor, you can do so by clicking on the three-dot icon to the right of the toolbar, and selecting Edit as HTML. When you select this option, the block’s content will be shown as code, and you can edit it as needed. To return to the Visual Editor, simply click on the three-dot icon again and select Edit Visually. That should be all you need to update your old posts using the Classic block. Method 2: Convert Your Old Content into Blocks The other option you have available is to convert a post or page’s Classic block into new blocks. This will divide up your content up into individual elements, just as if you had created it using the Block Editor. To do this, click on the three-dot icon and select Convert to Blocks. Your post should then split up into separate pieces. Each paragraph will become its own block, as will every heading, image, list, video, button, and element. You can click on an individual block to edit the content within it. While this process usually goes off without a hitch, you’ll want to make sure that each element of your post has converted to the correct type of block. For example, if a pull quote from your old post has converted into a regular paragraph block, you can change it by clicking on the leftmost icon in the block toolbar. You can then select the correct block type from the options listed. Once all of your blocks are set to the correct types, you can use the toolbar at the top of each to make any specific changes related to alignment and placement within the post. You can also make edits related to each block’s type, such as by altering text styling or image size. In other words, you can now use the Block Editor’s full range of capabilities to work on your content. New Kid on the Block (Editor) Updating old posts is a smart way to freshen up your content and give your site a facelift. If you’re worried about how your old posts will fare in the age of the Block Editor, however, never fear. You can easily make changes to your old posts and pages. While you’re updating your WordPress site, why not upgrade your hosting service too? Our DreamPress plans include 24/7 WordPress support to help with all your Block Editor questions.

How to Secure Your Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure

Reseller Club Blog -

Today, many organisations and enterprises are moving into a more hybrid cloud environment. And why not? Hybrid clouds are agile – they adapt and change to the needs of the organisation. With their unique mix of private, on-premises clouds and public clouds, you can get the scalability, low cost and reliability of a public cloud, while you can get the security, control and customisation and flexibility of a private cloud- It is the best of both worlds. It is projected that by 2020, almost 90 per cent of organisations would have shifted to a hybrid cloud environment (source). However, due to this flexibility and these two worlds (private and public) the security of a hybrid cloud becomes a bit more challenging. In this article, we’re going to look at how to secure hybrid cloud. What is Hybrid Cloud? Simply put, a hybrid cloud is an environment that uses a mix of third-party public clouds and on-premises, private cloud – with orchestration between the two. When workloads move between these two platforms – the private and public clouds – you get greater flexibility and more data deployment options. This allows you to respond to computing changes and business needs with agility. Sounds good right? In order to establish this unique cloud computing environment, you need the availability of a public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) like AWS (Amazon Web Services) Google Cloud Platform or Microsoft Azure. Secondly, you need the construction of a private cloud (either through a cloud provider or on your own premises). The third component is a good Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity between the public and private cloud. Finally, you need to make sure that your Hybrid Cloud is secure. This is where the matter of hybrid cloud security comes in – why is it important and what does it entail? Hybrid Cloud Security While you may have a firm grip on the data in your own private cloud, once you begin to venture into the public cloud space, things become more complex. As more enterprises move to a hybrid cloud environment, more data security concerns arise. These are the top concerns: Cross-Cloud Policy Management: While policies and procedures within the organisation’s private data centre are set, these policies might not transfer well when it comes to the public cloud. Therefore, the challenge is to create, configure and maintain a security policy that is uniform across the entire network. This includes firewall rules, user identification/ authentication and IPS signatures amongst other things. Data Leaks:A key issue for data security administrators is data visibility. When it comes to deciding where data should be stored, organisations must put in the time, care and a tremendous amount of thought. And even then, it’s easy to lose track of the data without ensuring proper data visibility. Data compliance: Before organisations can move data and applications to a service provider cloud, they must make sure they understand all regulatory compliance laws that apply to their data – whether that’s customer credit card data or data spread across multiple geographical locations. Ultimately, it’s the responsibility of the organisation to make sure data of any nature is well-protected. Cloud providers and Cloud web hosting service providers will tell organisations which compliance standards they adhere to. If more is required then the responsibility lies with the organisation to spell out those needs. Scalability: All security tools, procedures and practices need to be scaled for growth. If that hasn’t been done, companies can hit roadblocks because they neglected to build a security architecture that scales itself to the organisation’s infrastructure resources. This brings us to the final question: How to secure Hybrid Cloud? While hybrid cloud environments are more complex, there are multiple hybrid cloud security solutions and practices organisations can put in place, to keep it secure. Isolate Critical Infrastructure: Organisations store incredibly sensitive data on the cloud. However, access to this data needs to be isolated and restricted to a few key personnel, or those who specifically require it. Securing Endpoints: Using the cloud infrastructure does not remove the need for endpoint security. Often, threats and attacks start at the endpoint level. Accordingly, enterprises and organisations need to implement proper endpoint security by choosing comprehensive security solutions that offer application whitelisting and browser exploit protection. Encrypting data: Data – in transit and at rest – needs to be encrypted as a security measure. Organisations must also protect data, while it’s being used and processed by a cloud application. This will ensure that the data is protected for its entire lifecycle. While encryption methods vary according to service providers, organisations can choose the encryption method they prefer and then look for hosting providers who offer the same. Back up Data: It is essential that organisations backup their data – both physically and virtually – in case an attack or system failure leads to a loss of data (either temporary or permanent). Backing up data for your website and other applications will ensure that the data is accessible at all times.   Create a continuity and recovery plan: It’s vital that organisations create a backup plan to ensure that operations continue to run smoothly in a time of crisis (this could include power outages at data centres or disruption of services). A recovery plan could include image-based backups, which will create copies of computers or VMs, which can be used to recover or restore data. Risk Assessment: One good practice for organisations to follow is to constantly update risk assessment and analysis practices. That way, organisations can review the cloud provider’s compliance status and security capabilities. It also allows organisations to look at their own internal development and orchestration tools. Organisations must also keep an eye on operation management, monitoring tools, security tools and controls – both internally and in the public cloud. Vigilance like this allows security teams to maintain clarity and confidence in the controls that are currently in place and will give them time to modify them if required. Choose a Reliable Web Hosting Provider: When choosing a Cloud Hosting provider for your website, organisations must look at the security capabilities. The service provider should be aware that security is a key concern and they should provide adequate security measures to keep your data safe. Good Cloud Hosting providers use the storage systems to ensure unshakeable stability. This ensures that you don’t have to worry about the loss of data due to hardware failures. Ultimately, every hybrid cloud security issue has a corresponding solution. The trick is to identify specific problems early and then create a comprehensive security solution. If organisations do that, they will end up with a powerful hybrid cloud that functions smoothly, is easy to manage and remains secure. .fb_iframe_widget_fluid_desktop iframe { width: 100% !important; } The post How to Secure Your Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure appeared first on ResellerClub Blog.

How to Use Google AdSense and Other Ads Simultaneously

Grow Traffic Blog -

Before we begin, I find that there’s a lot of confusion as to whether an ad-related topic is focusing on the publisher perspective or the advertiser perspective. Some topics are easy to identify; if I’m talking about the cost of ads, I’m talking about the advertiser side. If I’m talking about your earnings, it’s probably about the publisher side of things. Google sort of helped with this by keeping a separation between AdSense and AdWords as the publisher and advertiser sides, respectively, but they’ve been rolling them into Google Ads for branding purposes. In any case, what I’m talking about today is AdSense, the publisher side of things, and the publisher side of other ad networks as well. Like all things with Google, ads can be pretty complex. The list of ad policies for AdSense is a mile long, and there are a whole lot of different restrictions, guidelines, and placement policies for different kinds of ads as well. Let’s talk about how AdSense combines with other ad networks, and see where we stand. Can You Use AdSense With Other Ads? This is a pretty common question. Can you use Google AdSense ads on your site alongside ads from other ad networks? The answer is yes. There are no restrictions in AdSense relating to the number of ad networks you can use on any given page. If you want to run ads from AdSense, ads from Adsterra or the other alternative networks, affiliate links, self-serve ads, or whatever else, you can. Google doesn’t care. What Does Google Care About? Google actually has a lot of different policies relating to ads that may be limiting your ability to use other ad networks. They don’t explicitly say “hey you can only have three ads on your page”, because they know there are different layouts for ads that can be reasonable. One site with three ads might be very unobtrusive, while another might have three large banner ads stacked on top of each other directly above the content, pushing it below the fold and making the site much less user-friendly. A lot of it comes down to your placement, so here are the guidelines for ad placement, in summary form: You are not permitted to place ads in a location that encourages accidental clicks. Accidental clicks can get your AdSense account banned, and there’s no way to recover from that ban. You are not permitted to use site design elements to draw undue attention to ads. None of those arrows that point to ads, blinking banners highlighting ads, or weird animations drawing attention to them. You are not allowed to label your ads in a way that is misleading, like “support us by clicking an ad” or “helpful links”. Anything that directly encourages users to click on ads is not allowed, and anything disguising the fact that they’re ads is bannable. You are not allowed to place images aligned to look like they’re associated with non-image ads. Using a text element and then using CSS to align some images to make them look like image ads is misrepresenting the content of the ads and usually makes advertisers very angry. You are not permitted to run ads in a layout that pushes content below the fold. If a user loads the page and all they see is ads and maybe your article headline – alongside your navigation – that’s a very poor user experience. Typically a responsive design will solve device issues that cause this, so if you have too many ads pushing content down, you need to move or remove some of them. You cannot offer any compensation for clicking ads. Absolutely nothing. Remember that bit about encouraging clicks? Incentives are very much in that category and can get your account removed. You cannot put ads in an element that refreshes itself automatically. Infinite scrolling pages can load new ads, but they can’t then refresh the other ads on the page; this would cause additional views for those ads, which throws off all the numbers and can be considered view fraud. You cannot place ads on exit-intent windows, log-in windows, or error pages. Anything that isn’t visible when the user loads the page cannot have an ad in it. You cannot place ads in dynamic content, like chat windows or within software. If you want ads in an app, Google has ads that can do that, through AdMob. You cannot put AdSense ads in emails. You can’t slip one by Google either, unless you just refuse to send emails to the entire Gmail domain. You are not permitted to put AdSense ads in pop-ups, pop-unders, in software, or in new windows. Additionally, while you can put ads on a site that uses pop-ups or pop-unders, the site cannot have more than three such additional windows spawning. Google knows that such techniques are effective enough that they can’t ban them completely, but they can ban excessive use of such techniques. None of that directly mentions the number of ads that can go on a single page, so we have to dig a little deeper for that information. Types of Ad Unit AdSense has a bunch of different styles of ad unit, depending on how you look at it. I’ve seen some people divide them into three categories: display units, link units, and native units. I’ve seen others include search units. Given that Google themselves divide them into five categories when giving examples, that’s what I’ll be using for the moment. If you want a deep dive into the variety of different ad sizes you can use with Google AdSense advertising, you can check out this page, which shows you all of the most common sizes with images so you know precisely what you’re looking at. The type of unit you use doesn’t actually matter to Google in terms of ad density restrictions. They don’t say “oh you can only have three display ads but you can have up to five text ads.” Ad density is controlled entirely by their Valuable Inventory Policy. The Valuable Inventory Policy If you’re wondering why you remember there being a fixed number of ads you can run on a page, and why I’m not mentioning those numbers now, it’s because they changed a few years ago. Google changed their policies in 2016, to move away from fixed numbers, because as always, webmasters ruin everything. Basically, if Google says “you can only have up to five ad units on your page”, webmasters read that as “you can pack five ad units into your page” and disregard any other considerations. The letter of the law is more important to them than the spirit of the law. They’ll happily make pages virtually unusable as long as they comply with the rules just right. So, in 2016, Google decided they had enough and decided to roll out a more blanket policy that generalizes the rules and leaves them more up to interpretation. This gives webmasters more design flexibility, while also allowing them more leeway to program their algorithm. The algorithm can now make judgments for ads based on their density and position. The Valuable Inventory Policy is their solution. Here’s what it says: “Advertising and other paid promotional material added to your pages should not exceed your content. Furthermore, the content you provide should add value and be the focal point for users visiting your page. For this reason, we may limit or disable ad serving on pages with little to no value and/or excessive advertising until changes are made.” Examples of unacceptable pages include mirroring pages, putting pages in frames with ads on them, rewriting or scraping content from other sources with no added value, pages with more ads than content, pages with automatically generated content with no curation, pages with no content besides ads, and pages that don’t meet the webmaster quality guidelines. This includes all ads on the page. You must have at least as much content on your page as you have ads, and this goes by screen real estate, not by word count. It includes all AdSense ads as well as all non-Google ads. You can use 5 Google ads and 2 non-Google ads, as long as they’re tastefully positioned and are not obstructing content. You can also use 2 Google ads and 5 non-Google ads in the same way. Again, the focus is on content, with advertising taking a secondary role. The fact is, the more content you have, the more ads you can support. One of the main arguments in favor of this new policy is the advent of websites that scroll forever, loading more content as they go. If Google enforced a 3-ads-per-page max or whatever, users would quickly be able to scroll down past where the ads are, giving you a lot of user traffic with no way to monetize it. Infinite scroll sites are allowed to load more ads as they go, as long as those ads are still in a reasonable proportion compared to the primary content of the site. Other Limitations One thing you may need to concern yourself with when you’re running ads from more than one ad network is any limitations imposed by those other networks. Not all networks are as forward thinking or as adaptable as Google tends to be, and as such, they may have policies that they copied from Google in 2005 and have not updated since. Make sure to check policies for any individual ad network you want to use in conjunction with AdSense. Another restriction you have will be the viability of your ads. Remember that ads will perform differently whether they’re above the fold or below it, and where they’re positioned on the page. They also have to compete with each other, as well as banner blindness. There’s a point of diminishing returns, and that point varies depending on the website. If you tend to have relatively short content, having a small number of ads is probably better. If you tend to write lengthy case studies and longer content, you can fit in more ads without decreasing the viability of each of them. Keep in mind the different kinds of ads you’ll be running as well. Affiliate links – which need to be disclosed as per the US Government guidelines and similar regulations around the world – may be valuable, but they do still count as ads, and Google can identify them even if you use redirects to hide them from your users. In-stream video ads also count against your ads level, though they’re going to be based on the play time of the video, not of the screen real estate used to display them. Above all, the user experience is paramount. If you have so many ads that your users are leaving the page in disgust, or reporting the ads as spam, or are otherwise taking action to avoid them, you probably have too many ads. You want your users to engage with your content, and experience ads on the side. Adding more and more ads to counteract declining engagement rates on your ads will only accelerate the total collapse of your audience. Pretty much every Google policy since 2011’s Panda update has been focused on improving the experience for web users, so as long as you keep that in mind at all times, you should have a good idea of what your limits are. Keep your users happy, and Google will be happy enough to reward you. The post How to Use Google AdSense and Other Ads Simultaneously appeared first on Growtraffic Blog.

What To Do When You Fail a Website Performance Test

InMotion Hosting Blog -

Has your website failed a performance test? A bad website hosting service could be to blame. A website performance test measures page speed – the length of time it takes to display all the content on a specific page or the length of time it takes the server to receive that page’s first byte of information. Why is that important? Because visitors aren’t going to sit around and wait for your page to load.

7 Steps To Get Increased Brand Loyalty Through M-commerce

Reseller Club Blog -

Have you thought about how you can increase your brand loyalty? There are many ways to do that but m-commerce is one of the best ways. M-Commerce, that is, selling on mobile devices, is an absolute must for any business. According to Statista, by the year 2021, almost 54% of all online transactions take place by Mobile retail Commerce (M-commerce) as opposed to the traditional E-Commerce platforms. And that is logical too, after all, mobile devices are by definition more convenient. Added to that fact is the situation that Google, is now employing a mobile-first rule, meaning that its rankings will prioritize mobile-friendly sites above everything else. So, if more than half of your potential market is mobile-based, and Google no less is ranking sites by their mobile accessibility, these are two very good reasons to start developing a brand loyalty strategy via M-Commerce. Keep it simple Mobile platforms don’t need bells and whistles. In fact, those same decorative elements actually end up having a detrimental effect by sending potential customers elsewhere due to over-complicated and messy pages. Keep your message clear and concise, and allow the customer to do what they want to do easily and simply. Anything extra is just overkill. Take a look at the AcademicBrits website and see how they handled a lot of information but added simplicity as well. Overkill Example Good Example 2. Quickly reveal value We live in an impatient society, that’s a fact, and online it’s even more cutthroat. Just like in the previous point, get straight to the point and reveal instantly what value you can add to the customer. Don’t hide away terms and conditions, lay them bare, so the customer knows exactly what they are getting involved in, and allow them to take the plunge quickly. As for rewards, don’t make customers work too hard for them. Keep them within easy reach. If you don’t do it, someone else will, and there goes your customer. 3. Make your site customizable Another challenge for developers is that, as well as being simple, a mobile site must also be customizable. After all, no one wants a site that provides a host of unnecessary information and/or products. This is all part of a society that demands instant gratification, so allow your site to be customized in a way that it only displays the content that the user wants. It should be responsive for mobile devices, obviously. Make sure it loads quickly and that it provides a great user experience that feels seamless and effortless. 4. Provide memorable user experience Quite simply, nothing is really enough if you can’t produce some sort of emotional attachment to the user. Nowadays, people want imaginative and relatable experiences from the mobile sites they visit, and big data is not enough. To stand out from the crowd, you need unique experiences and content. “What we are talking about here is the term ‘big emotions’. This means that nothing else will do, and this is a huge challenge for developers and marketers. How can you create an emotional connection with your customer?” asks Sindy Peltier, a tech editor at 1day2Write and Writemyx. Customers are looking for an experience that provides a ‘wow’ factor that very first time. Once you have that first memorable user experience safely tucked into your belt, the next time becomes that little bit easier. 5. Engage the Audience A huge part of building a brand relationship is engaging the customer in the first place. That can be through any number of methods, but you have to maintain the conversation and show that you genuinely listen by taking feedback at every opportunity and using it. Meaningful engagements can be secured through the site itself, or through social media channels. Thus, you need to ensure that your communication quickly becomes an engagement. “Personalize that communication. In the past that used to be incredibly time consuming, but now automation software makes this a very accessible technique. It helps to develop an individual relationship which can be invaluable to a growing brand,” argues Lyndsay Stephens, an M-Commerce expert at Britstudent and Nextcoursework. 6. Use brand partnerships Utilizing a well-considered brand partnership is a really smart way of developing your reputation and quickly securing a loyal following. Not only is it an extremely financially viable technique of growing exposure by piggy-backing onto the already established marketing presence of another brand, by selecting the right brands to get involved with, it shows the customer that you are looking out for them by bringing together two (or more) products or services that you understand they are seeking. It increases convenience, and aligned together with reward schemes, can actually result in infinitely better customer experience with meaningful savings and perks. That is a sure-fire way of building a relationship to last. In summary The stats don’t lie.

DreamHost Blog -

It’s been a year since the European Parliament turned the GDPR proposal into active legislation.

Humans have been fighting for our right to privacy since the first loincloth accidentally ripped off in a heated saber-tooth tiger hunt over 300,000 years ago. The Gronk Decision of 320,532 BC was a landmark ruling guaranteeing a right to secondary, backup loincloths to both hunters and gatherers alike.

Do you Need Email Hosting? It’s Included with InMotion Hosting!

InMotion Hosting Blog -

Email hosting is an online hosting service that rents out and operates email servers. Signing up for an email hosting service isn’t the same as signing up for a free email account like Gmail or Yahoo. While similar, email hosting provides a more premium product. Further, signing up for email hosting is also not the same as signing up for web hosting–although you often can get both services from one provider. Confused yet?

How to Create a Style Guide for Your Website in 5 Steps

HostGator Blog -

The post How to Create a Style Guide for Your Website in 5 Steps appeared first on HostGator Blog. Websites are online storefronts for small businesses. Because they play a pivotal role in the customer experience, your team must make it a priority. A style guide helps your small business develop a cohesive look for your website. Without a clear branding style, customers will disengage and leave your site. Style guides also ensure there aren’t any discrepancies in your branding strategy. Let’s streamline your online presence. Here are 5 elements to consider in your website style guide. 1. Brand Voice Branding is the overall perception of your small business. It’s how you differentiate your products and services from others in the market. Brand voice is part of building your website. You get to show visitors your brand personality and unique qualities. Voice can range from casual and calm to vibrant and risky. In the chart below, each voice characteristic corresponds with suggested actions (and inactions) for businesses. For instance, a company aiming for an authentic voice should portray honesty and ownership of mistakes and stay away from marketing jargon. A description of your brand voice isn’t always enough. When developing your style guide, you also should include explicit examples for your team to follow. This tactic eliminates any uncertainty when posting copy to your site. Web design affects many internal departments. Your sales team needs to know the appropriate messaging to secure customers. The finance team is interested in the actual costs, and human resources wants to attract new employees. Therefore, it’s helpful to get input from your entire team when making key brand decisions. Choose a brand voice that inspires your customers. Then, you can start developing a website that represents your brand story.   2. Navigation Laying out your website is just as critical as selecting the right words and images. When visitors land on your site, they should easily tell where to go next. It’s vital that your team craft a straightforward roadmap for their visit. For starters, keep your main heading options under six. Too many choices can overwhelm visitors and can cause them to take no action at all. Drop-down menus also can offer structure, giving visitors access to additional pages without multiple clicks. When mapping out your navigation, conduct customer research and examine data from conversion optimization tools like heatmaps. You’ll want to begin with what’s important. Andy Crestodina, the co-founder and CMO of Orbit Media, provides his perspective: “In website navigation, just like any list, items at the beginning and the end are most effective, because this is where attention and retention are highest. Always seek to put the things that are most important to visitors in the most visually prominent places.” Effective navigation helps customers buy your products. So, streamline the navigation bar to increase engagement.   3. Colors Red, blue, purple, yellow. The colors on your website matter to your visitors. They can either spark an invitation to stay or ignite a reaction to leave your site immediately. Colors influence consumers’ perceptions of your brand. While each color represents something different for every individual, humans do recognize specific colors to represent different emotions. Yet, studies recommend that companies select colors that support the brand personality they want to portray, instead of aligning with stereotypical color associations. Your team then can add meaning to the chosen colors through other branding aspects. The diagram below shows the connection between a color and a meaning. For example, lime green can translate into competence with a brand personality of reliability and intelligence. Colors relay an essential message your customers. Don’t force your brand to adhere to the traditional norms of what a color embodies. Find the right palette for your small business.   4. Fonts Fonts are usually the last thing on a small business owner’s mind. However, fonts help communicate your brand’s voice. Script fonts can portray a young, playful company, while a slab font can mean a bold, established brand. Google Fonts is an interactive library of more than 900 fonts. It’s an easy-to-use tool to experiment with fonts and compare your top choices. Avoid fonts that aren’t legible or clear. Consumers shouldn’t have to squint their eyes to read your text or take a second look just to be certain. Jill Chongva, a WordPress website designer, says: “It’s best to use fonts that complement each other and work together without being jarring for the reader. This usually means choosing a combination of a serif font and a sans serif font that don’t fight for the reader’s attention.” It’s also wise to not select fonts similar to well-known brands, like Coca-Cola or Nike. You want a distinct font that separates your small business from the competition. What font expresses your brand? Do your research and select one that will grab your consumers’ attention.   5. Images Images impact how consumers see your small business. With a couple of pictures, buyers can quickly determine whether they can see themselves with your product. In your style guide, outline the type of images that are acceptable for brand promotion. Specify the recommended file format and display size. You also may want to limit the number of images per page—leaving some white space. That way, your visitors don’t get bombarded with too many visuals at once. Invest in quality product photography. You want images that display the fine details of your product. For example, if you sell purses, consumers should see every pattern design. The image should give them a sense of how the product would look and feel in real life. Customers can become accustomed to the same old stock photos. For your website to stand out, you may want to shoot your own photos. Most smartphones are capable of taking high-quality pictures. So, encourage your team to share their photos from the last company retreat or team-building outing. Choose your images carefully. The image specifications make a huge difference for your website.   Your Website’s Style Guide Websites are open invitations for customers to learn about your small business. Style guides create a roadmap to establish your brand. With the right elements, your team can build a better customer experience. Find the post on the HostGator Blog

What Is a Business Incubator (And Should You Consider One)?

Liquid Web Official Blog -

Business incubators give brand-new businesses access to the resources and mentoring they need to thrive. Around the world, business incubators are nurturing new companies in every industry and showing them how to grow beyond their in-house assistance. Does your business need one? Not necessarily. But the experience and assistance may be invaluable. A business incubator may be just the thing to keep your new store from becoming a statistic. How do you know if an incubator is right for you? This guide can help. Business Incubators Make It Easier to Start Your Business Starting a new business is hard work, particularly without the right tools and opportunities. Incubators strive to provide everything a new business needs which typically includes: Advice from Experienced Mentors Physical Space for Offices Business Courses Networking Financial assistance Technical support Services Access to investor funding is a really huge potential benefit, too. At some incubators, potential investors are around to provide businesses with their first funding in exchange for equity stakes. You can also learn valuable information about loan opportunities from banks and alternative lenders if giving away equity isn’t part of your business plan. To be successful in starting your eCommerce business, you’ll need to put in a lot of effort. Incubators help you channel these efforts in the right direction. Get industry-leading tips on scaling your business. Subscribe to the Liquid Web eCommerce newsletter and get content like this sent straight to your inbox. How Do Business Incubators Work? With the right resources, entrepreneurs can set up their businesses for a successful start and paced growth. New business owners often don’t know what they’re missing and aren’t sure where to start with their early research. An incubator may provide you with a basic office lease, consulting, networking, and mentoring — usually for a fee. As you grow, you can scale up or down quickly in the services you use without penalty. These organizations may be for-profit or nonprofit and are frequently associated with a specific industry, city, or academic institution. Their mission is generally to boost the economy by enabling new businesses to grow sustainably and successfully. Of course, how they achieve their mission and what they do to support businesses may vary tremendously. When you’re ready to move your business out on its own, you’ll have an established network you can refer to later if you need support. Benefits of a Business Incubator New eCommerce businesses can potentially improve their survival rate and entrepreneurs can learn about their companies with support and guidance. It’s a place that naturally leads to business relationships and opportunities as startups learn and grow together. Beyond networking, there are other potential benefits such as: Expertise: Lawyers, CPAs, marketing consultants, business analysts, and other experts may be in-house or on a list available to all businesses. Better mentoring: A-list entrepreneurs who’ve been where you are now are typical on-hand mentors. Community: If life gets lonely as a new business, having others around who can empathize can be helpful when the going gets tough. Reduced overhead: Basics like a receptionist, meeting spaces, and assistance from a business research assistant can be expensive, but an incubator can make these benefits much more affordable. Discounts: Special group discounts are often included in your membership. There may be a variety of additional benefits depending on the nature of the program, and the partnerships they’ve cultivated for their members. Startup Office Lease Through an Incubator Program For many businesses, incubators provide their first office space. This is usually at a below-market rate so your company can focus on business operations and not have to worry so much about covering rent. Also, your lease will probably have a great deal of flexibility so you can adjust the space you’re using and accommodate the change in your company. Since you’re in the same building as other new companies and among others from your industry, you have the opportunity to network closely with people who face many of the same concerns and challenges. Even if your program doesn’t include a lease, the list of other participants gives you opportunities to connect with businesses you may never have met otherwise. Networking with Other Incubator Participants Your fellow startups can actually teach you a lot. Even if you’re technically competitors, it’s still worthwhile to meet other business owners and talk about issues facing your industry. Within an incubator, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to find others who have insightful contributions to share. Meetups, discussion nights, and social activities give you a sense of camaraderie and motivation. Connecting with others gives you a chance to ask questions and learn who the other participants are outside of work. It’s also a way to get business advice. Those who are further along in their entrepreneurial journey may share tips and ideas with you. Don’t be afraid to ask — as long as you’re also open to sharing information that’s helped you. Remember, what goes around comes around. Build goodwill and be a positive influence. That good karma you’re building will come in handy when you start promoting your business. Aside from customers, some of the most important people you’ll promote your business to will be within your business world. Find Investors for Your eCommerce Business If you’ve ever wondered where you’ll find your first investors, an incubator may be right for you. That’s because incubators often host invitation-only investment nights and pitch events where you can interact directly with potential investors and learn how to explain your company’s value proposition. Those first investments can make reaching your business dreams a lot more realistic and accessible. Who Shouldn’t Use a Business Incubator Business incubators may not be very helpful for some businesses. For instance, if you’re an experienced business owner with adequate resources, incubators may not be as valuable. If it’s not specific to your industry and doesn’t include mentors and resources that are relevant to you, that could also pose significant issues. To find out if an incubator would actually help, be sure to start with research. Talk to the coordinator or liaison and prepare a list of questions. Here’s a list to start your research: What does the typical process look like for participants? How do I know I’ll be successful in your business incubator program? What is your track record with businesses in my industry? Who are the mentors? What resources are available? Can I talk to some graduates of the program? As you think of other questions, be sure to jot them down. If a particular program is not the right fit, it’s easier when you can find that out before investing your time and energy into it. If you can, consider participating in an eCommerce business incubator. Business Incubator for eCommerce Business incubators provide opportunities to find tailored advice and resources that fit your eCommerce industry. It’s an industry-specific resource so you won’t have to waste time learning about issues that don’t apply to you, and everything is purpose-built for your success. That said, there are fewer eCommerce programs because most incubators are generalists. Why eCommerce-Specific Business Incubators Have Added Value No two businesses are the same, and eCommerce as an industry works differently than other areas of business operations. Here are a few issues an eCommerce incubator may help you resolve: Niche research Product sourcing Patent and trademark law Licensing Import and export information eCommerce technology Design and photography Forecasting Accounting and legal issues Marketing and advertising These areas are somewhat different from other industries. Find an eCommerce Business Incubator Business incubator programs exist all over the country, but relocation may be necessary for the perfect opportunity. Online programs are also available. Search The National Business Incubator Association’s business incubator database or check this list from The MBA is Dead. Keep in mind that most are generalist business incubators. You may also want to check with your local chamber of commerce and find out if the business community where you live has any additional resources. Examples of eCommerce Business Incubators These business incubators specifically serve the eCommerce industry: Rocket Internet: Working with online companies globally, Rocket focuses largely on eCommerce. Graduates include Zalora, Westwing, Hello Fresh, and Lamoda. Nordic Etail: Specific to Sweden, Nordic Etail grows eCommerce companies and is a newer incubator focused on online retailing. A Better Lemonade Stand: An online incubator for eCommerce businesses offering growth resources, manufacturer listings, help with branding and business plans, and more. Some incubators are more competitive than others. Many have formal arrangements and contracts, while some have very basic requirements or allow informal buy-in to access specific resources. For some incubators, getting in is a competitive process. These are usually the organizations that invest the most in their members. Applying for a Business Incubator Each business incubator program has its own requirements and expectations, so it’s important to do your research. Programs that provide investment to all participants and offer the best mentoring are usually highly competitive. During the process you may: File an online application at the start and wait to be called for the next steps. Interview with one or more of the founders — it may be required to interview in person. Provide financials or share financial information about your business. Present your business plan or pitch a panel of program advisors. Review a contract outlining expectations and responsibilities. Once you’re in, incubators generally don’t provide as much pressure to succeed as accelerators do, but this is no time to kick back. You need to work hard and get moving. Getting the Most From Your New Business Incubator When you start the program, take every opportunity you can to work hard and learn from the mentors around you. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and take some time getting to know the program. Learning about business incubator success stories can also help you find out how to get more out of your new business incubation program. Many of today’s biggest companies are incubator graduates. Y Combinator, a business accelerator, is very similar to the incubators supporting small businesses, but it offers a more competitive environment and a shorter incubation time frame of just three months. These companies are now just a few of the famous Y Combinator grads: Airbnb Dropbox Reddit Stripe Feel free to use them as inspiration as you grow your business. The right support and mentoring may take your company further than you’d ever expect.

5 Reasons to Avoid Cheap Or Free Cloud Hosting

Reseller Club Blog -

Choosing the right website hosting is crucial to the success of your online business and so is the choice of the hosting provider. A quick google search would list a number of web hosting services for you to choose. From cheap to costly the options are many and at first glance, the price can be an important factor used to convert visitors to customers. However, not everything that is cheap is wonderful, sometimes it might just prove to be not worth it in the long run. In this article, we’ll talk about cheap or free cloud hosting and list down 5 reasons why it is best to avoid such web hosting services. So without further ado, let us begin! What matters? There are several features customers look out for when it comes to choosing web hosting for their website – performance and speed being the top two, with Cloud Hosting being the best bet. And in this quest of finding the best hosting service, we often times neglect another important feature – cost. This is probably because we see a lot of hosting companies offering free or cheap web hosting with reasonable features and it seems like the best bet especially at the start. Be that as it may, a free or cheap web hosting can really mess up your website resulting in poor performance and unhappy customers. Whether you are considering going for cheap Cloud Hosting due to limited funds or have already purchased it, we ask you to scroll down and consider the 5 reasons you should avoid free or cheap cloud web hosting for your website. 5 Reasons to Avoid Cheap Cloud Hosting Poor Page Load Speed Cloud Hosting, in general, is known for its fast page load speed and scalability. In fact, according to a report by Hubspot, the ideal page load speed for a website’s HTML should be less than 1.5 seconds. Given these statistics, it is evident that Cloud Hosting is the most logical choice for blazing fast website speed. However, with cheap Cloud Hosting, there are two factors to be considered: Is the Cloud Hosting cheap always or Is there some promo going on If the prices of Cloud Hosting are always on the cheaper end, chances are the server is hosted in a Shared Hosting platform. Here multiple websites share the same server which, in turn, might impact the page load speed of your website. However, if the case is the latter then do your research thoroughly because the Cloud Hosting might be good and the provider might just be running the promo to up their sales in the competitive market. Negative impact on SEO and rankingsSpeed impacts SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Google considers page load speed while determining the page rank it assigns to a particular page. In fact, this is of utmost importance when it comes to mobile searches. If your website speed is slow then your page will load slower from the server end which would eventually affect your google page rank. Thus, cheap Cloud Hosting has a negative impact on SEO and page rankings. Uptime/Downtime issues Cheap hosting spells server issues. If the server your website is hosted on is down there will be a lot of downtime. This is mostly true because multiple websites share the same server space and there is limited bandwidth. Thus, if a particular website receives heavy traffic it might not only affect the performance of that website but also of the other websites hosted on the server. Moreover, if your server faces a lot of downtime, it will indirectly affect the uptime and your website may not recover as fast as it should have. Security Concerns Everything comes with a price! Cheap or free Cloud Hosting doesn’t guarantee security. This means your website is vulnerable to security flaws, malicious viruses and so on. Furthermore, with multiple websites sharing the same server and a lack of firewall can increase your security concerns. You may have your own security in place, however, if the server is compromised all is lost. Customer Support Most cheap or free hosting services do not offer managed support to their clients. This means that if you are not tech savvy you might land yourself in a glitch. Before choosing a free hosting provider, make sure to check if they have good customer support via calls/emails/tickets/chats. If you feel anything is lacking then it is wise to not go ahead with the deal. After all, good support is helpful in times of need. Conclusion: Cheap Hosting may seem like a lucrative option at the start, however, in the long run, it is far more expensive than a slightly high priced hosting might be. So the next time you are tempted to opt for cheap Cloud Hosting we suggest you go a step further and research if it is really value for money or just making a hole in your pocket. We at ResellerClub offer affordable Cloud Hosting that assures blazing fast website load speed with the use of varnish cache, impeccable support, 99.9% uptime, high performance and scalability.
