Slight change in the blog links this month as I am now officially co-director with Peter Davies – Kent Independent Services Ltd, our new Search Engine Optimisation company. The partnership has just been set up but Pete and I have been working together on SEO projects for about one year now, this includes some OHM clients.

Latest news from gotopseo.co.uk
I’m going to give Google a feature this month as yet again the global search giant hits the national news…

Google fined £2.14 billion for being the smartest?

This week Margrethe Vestager, the European competition commissioner, said Google…

“abused its market dominance as a search engine by promoting its own comparison shopping service in its search results, and demoting those of competitors.”

Search engine stats, who’s the daddy?

Are Google still as dominant?

What is The Dark Web?

Be afraid! Can governments really control what we see on the internet – we don’t think so

Summer top tips
Traditionally some businesses go a bit quiet over the summer months, time to reflect? Here are some recommendations for your website marketing:

  • Is your website mobile friendly?
    We are still doing some great offers for our older (design) clients still using static pages. Google now actively penalises non-mobile friendly web pages on its results pages.
  • Are you mobile friendly? click here to find out
  • Do you refresh content at least once per month?
    Google likes refreshed content and the best way to do this is through regular news blogs on your web pages. Our new WordPress websites make this easy and once you get going, it only takes a few minutes of your time.
  • The rewards are amazing
    • higher traffic volumes
    • more enquiries
    • increased business
  • Is your page content correct and up to date?
    Our WordPress content management systems allows easy access and editing for all pages.
  • FREE Training
    We offer FREE training and there’s no specialist 3rd party software required.

Scams

There’s a lot of press coverage about Ransomware scams at the moment, there’s also the Microsoft scam when the ‘IT Support’ guy calls you and requests access. We had that one, had some fun with them before they put the phone down. The old web name scam is back again, guy calls offering you a similar web name to you existing for about £200. Just stay aware and let staff know not to open emails that look suspicious.

Special mention
Youngest of the Stevenson clan, George (18) has just finished his last A Level and will be assisting OHM through the summer before starting university. George has been attending Dover College for the past 13 years and picks up 3 x 6th form prizes at next weeks prize giving ceremony. Well done ‘Albert’.

Holidays
As mentioned above, offices closed from next Friday for a couple of weeks. Pete and the support guys are on hand to help should there be a problem.

Thanks for reading this far

Nigel
