Updated Hosting Infrastructure – FAST, Reliable Websites!
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).
Why Great Original Content Is Still King In Online Marketing
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
Calgary Web Design SEO Challenge Day #42 – Front Page
Alright! We’ve finally cracked the front page of Google for one of our most targeted search terms.

Calgary Web Design SEO Challenge Day #8 – Onwards & Upwards
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
Calgary Web Design SEO Challenge Day #1 – Purpose & Intent
We’ve been busy lately! By virtue of dedication to business success of our clients and their websites, and obsessing over the details of the sites we manage, and all the important inner workings of the systems in the background and our methodologies; the business has steadily grown since it was conceptualized just over 2 years ago and we’ve never had much of a chance to put any effort into marketing ourselves. We’ve recently made massive improvements to our hosting system, speed, security, and now we’re working on improving our ability to create amazing results with SEO work and get great
