I like naked URL’s myself. Like how a human feels naked, it’s freedom, unrestricted from cumbersome apparel. Same with your URL. On your business cards and other printed materials take off the “http://www…” from your website address and you’ll have a simple, pleasing appearance. It becomes easy to read and the .com ending is your clue that this is a URL. You can type any URL address with or without the “http://www..” and get to the same web page.
Tech SEO experts will tell you there are some consequences to using either. My point of view is that as long as you are consistent with your choice you will be okay.
(The definition of a URL is the address of a World Wide Web page for those of you who are website newbies.)
Why Monthly Website Maintenance…
My thought has always been why offer website maintenance? Doesn’t a website just sit on the internet? My ideas have changed and I can say I’ve seen the light. It’s because a website needs to be maintained. The internet is a wild place with worms, spams, hackers and a million lines of code jumbling around getting mixed up from time to time.
Keep your website looking great and working flawlessly all year long. Your clients will love visiting your site knowing you are a trusted and enthusiastic business owner.
Your site can be monitored to maintain a pleasing, well working appearance with all of your SEO ducks in a row. Some features to consider are:
