Many early reviews are calling the new Apple iPad an oversized iPod touch. So What? I think it looks cool. The iPad will be a device that gadget fans will lust after. For me it is a great innovative product that will open up many doors to future technology….
Domain Name System (DNS) is a database system that translates a computer’s fully qualified domain name into an IP address.
Networked computers use IP addresses to locate and connect to each other, but IP addresses can be difficult for people to remember. For example, on the web, it’s much easier to remember the domain name www.melkoacreative.com than it is to remember its corresponding IP address (188.8.131.52 ).
DNS allows you to connect to another networked computer or remote service by using its user-friendly domain name rather than its numerical IP address. Without DNS, the Internet as we know it would not function.
The function of changing DNS on a domain means repointing where the domain is to be routed to. Delays of up to 48 hours can occur when completing this function.
Search engine optimisation (SEO) is the process of improving the volume or quality of traffic to a web site from search engines. 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.
There are literally hundreds of techniques to get your website performing better on Google. No website out there uses all of these techniques so the best way is to play around with certain factors.
For example: A client I met up with recently was getting no hits from Google. Nothing. I did an analysis of his current site and the results were shocking. One of the most easiest techniques for optimising a site was nowhere to be seen. I’m talking about the title of the site. Instead of having keywords in the title, which is standard practice, what my client’s site had was “index.html”. This was doing the site no favours. I can safely say that the site was no way near optimized. Hence no presence on Google.
It’s simple. If you have a site selling, let’s say, pencils. And someone searching Google types “pencils for offices” into the search box and clicks search. If you have a site selling pencils with a title “index.html” there is not a chance that someone is going to see your site. If, on the other hand, you have a title reading “office pencils” you will have a much better chance of appearing on search results.
Of course the above title technique is one of just many ways you too can get a great Google presence. Call me today for a report on your current site and let me deliver results to your business.
A domain name is nothing more than the Internet equivalent of a postal address or a telephone number. The same way in which “Ireland” as a postal address and the “353″ phone prefix flags where you’re physically located, the Internet “suffix” of .ie advises the entire e-business world that you’re doing business in, or from, Ireland.
If you’re doing business in Ireland you’re unlikely to want to use an American phone number or an Armenian postal address. That’s why .ie is the logical “Internet address” for Irish companies conducting e-business.
If you accept that ultimately most commerce is conducted via the Internet and it would take a brave person to believe otherwise, then you do need an Internet presence and the sooner the better.
