Responsive Websites, SEO, Social Media Managment
Because so many searches now begin on a tablet, smartphone or some other handheld device, on April 21, 2015 Google began promoting responsive (mobile-friendly) websites to the head of the class and penalizing the rest. One of the best ways to boost your page rank is by making sure your website is responsive. (A responsive website re-sizes automatically to fill any-size screen without the user having to scroll back and forth to read a single line of text or view an image or graph).
Social Media Management
Having trouble navigating the sea of social media sites? Not sure which ones will serve you best? Whether it’s Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest or any of the other social media sites, each has its own flavor, rules, and timetable.

Everyone’s asking how to get on the first page of Google. There are a gazillion companies offering to sell you the latest snake oil; be wary of the ones that promise you page one with so-called ‘guarantees’! Here’s the truth: White hat (reputable, reliable, non-scam-my, penalty-proof) SEO requires a long-term commitment to the quality of your website and to the genuine benefits it delivers to your online visitors.
How important is mobile-friendly design?
It’s crucial! Today your target audience visits your website from a dizzying array of devices. If they get frustrated reading your site on their mobile device, they can quickly abandon you to tap into a site that honors their time and technology. When this happens, the likelihood that they’ll ever come back hovers near zero. So keep your customers happy. Get the edge on your competitors: make your site responsive.
