Hibu Website Review - Is It Really Worth The Money?

Hibu Website Review - Is It Really Worth The Money? daily-golden-nugget-1550-19
It seems like once every year I come across another website using the Hibu service. Their corporate website says they are a leading provider of digital marketing to local businesses across the US, UK, and Spain. They say that they provide one-on-one service to unify digital marketing, website development, and SEO.

It all sounds good to the small business owner who is looking for an all-in-one online solution and doesn't have the time to learn or the money to hire the right people to do it. Hibu has...

Bloated Websites vs. Simple Websites

Bloated Websites vs. Simple Websites  daily-golden-nugget-1546-82
I'm taking a different approach in this week's website review. Normally, I look for poorly ranked websites and try to find reasons why they are not ranking well. When I started my search this week, I found a bunch of mediocre websites that were outranked by Yelp and YellowPages. All of the websites needed improvement. Oddly enough, the site I thought needed the most improvement, was outranking all of the others.

Today, I'll explore why that might be happening. First, I searched for "jewelers Healdsburg CA" and saw these resul...

TamRon Jewelry Design Technical Website Review

TamRon Jewelry Design Technical Website Review daily-golden-nugget-1545-20
For this week's website review, I went searching for "jewelers spokane wa" and had some trouble deciding on which site to review. There are several jewelers in Spokane to choose from with a wide range of websites from very old looking to very modern. The goal of this website review is to give ideas of how to improve a site and increase its ranking or improve its customer usability.

Pounder's Jewelry was the first website I found that could use improvement. The website address was VIEW FULL GOLD NUGGET

Quick Check For A Code and Speed Optimized Website #TBT

Quick Check For A Code and Speed Optimized Website TBT daily-golden-nugget-1314-37
Today's Throwback Thursday is going back to January 2011 to the Nugget about website speed.

In that old Nugget, I explained that a website's speed could be adversely affected by the software that runs it, i.e. the content management system, or CMS for short.

This is still very true today, and it's probably the main thing I look at when evaluating a website. A sloppy CMS or website ...

Your Website Is So Fat!

In years past, there were two different types of web programmers: the organized ones and the sloppy ones.

We're not talking about their desk, cubical, or car; no, in fact we're talking about their techniques in writing programming code.

The organized programmer would make sure all their HTML code was properly organized (we call it nested) and easy to read. Being organized always takes more time, but it saves time in the future when you need to edit code.

The sloppy programmer would slap together HTML code without any regard for organization. Many times they would also write bad or broken code that would not display properly in all web browsers. Debugging sloppy code is always a nightmare.

Luckily programs like Dreamweaver can take sloppy code and automatically organize it into something easily understood. VIEW FULL GOLD NUGGET
