We have been busy. Real busy. Focusing on the results and churning out project after project without compromise to the attention to detail — but the end of the tunnel is in sight & the business structure is changing. That said, we wanted to quickly spend time to address speed one more time. Why? Because we are just miles ahead of all of the competition in this area; and it’s one of the more easy-to-define, easy-to-understand and objective areas where we can demonstrate how much better we are than the competition (as opposed to say, design, business impact, SEO, cross-compatibility,

The last few months have been difficult as pertains to our hosting situation. From bad luck with hardware failures recently to some of our clients being heavily attacked with constant daily hacking attempts to email, web, and attempts to bring down the server with DDOS (distributed denial of service) attacks; we’ve had a rough go of trying to keep all of our client’s websites 100% fast, reliable, and secure. But we have learned lots and evolved & adapted to the challenge. In March, we migrated our main front-end server to a yet-again more powerful dual processor server with LiquidWeb (liquidweb.com).

There is no substitute for great & original content on your website if you want to be successful. But why?   1. Original content builds credibility with your site’s visitors. Maybe you have some lame, unoriginal copy on your website, or a bunch of stock photos they’ve also seen on your competitors website.  Perhaps you have a few generic pictures related to your business but no original and truly worthwhile media (pictures and videos). Perhaps you thought you don’t really need to bother with blogging or social media, or newsletters & creating new content for your website on a regular

This week, we will let the results do the talking: (Results from yesterday, Sunday March 4, 2012) Click To Enlarge Check out the Full PDF Rankings Report for more detail. Even with our rank-tracker program having issues gathering data from yahoo [we are actually doing quite well on Yahoo, also], we still see substantial gains in overall visibility & all our main targeted terms.

Alright!  We’ve finally cracked the front page of Google for one of our most targeted search terms. We had hoped to post this update with several of our targeted terms already on the front page (and for a few days we held #10 for “Calgary Web Designer”) but ended up with just one when it came time to post this update. Still, we’re pretty chuffed with our results… and we’re not done yet! Click To Enlarge Check out the Full PDF Rankings Report for more detail. The mystery above is the lack of love we have been getting from Yahoo

We’ve been hard at work to consolidate our former gains and make sure that we didn’t have to post any more updates with down arrows, it’s a fact of life with SEO but sometimes after making big gains you lose a bit before you can consolidate your increased rankings power; which is what we have now managed to do: Click To Enlarge Check out the Full PDF Rankings Report for more detail.

After running some initial SEO ranking reports shortly after our initial post, it occurred just how difficult of a challenge we’ve set for ourselves for little more than demonstration purposes. After all, our business philosophy is quality over quantity, and our loyalty comes to our existing clients first — so we would certainly would have some trouble with a massive influx of extra business, having to turn down a few potential clients that we’d otherwise like to work with. That said, we are on the scoreboard for our primary targeted term “Calgary Web Design” and also doing well for a
