A new toolkit to help with an old problem

As a developer I am always creating banners for sites. sometimes this can be fiddly and time consuming, especially when background panoramic style  photography is involved.

I am in the process as part of my web design business of revamping a website for a local organisation who want to deploy a scene from the local area in the banner.

I ran around yesterday  taking pics with my trusty Nikon 1  (IMHO the perfect web developers camera!)   During the process I fired off some skyline pics as a reference to the scene for later attention.

When I got back last night I reviewed the skyline shots and started thinking about stitching them into a  panorama of some sorts.  A few Google searches later I found to my surprise  a few pretty neat open source packages I can run under Linux that  would do the job.

Search Engine Marketing – meta keywords are dead long live content!

This post started life as an email sent to one of my clients, the topic we were discussing was the impact a domain name has on search engine rankings.

Choosing a Domain Name

Domain name is only one factor and  from what I have read on current search scoring, it is not a big factor.  My feeling is this  – a domain name should:
  • be able to be spelled perfectly by a prospect  when you speak the name  to them over the telephone.  e.g.   seesuresales.com    (bad) callmenow.com  (good) oh also hyphenated domains are not a good idea.
  • reflect your message   –  is this blog about xyz  business opportunity only or is it about a specific topic such as health, wellness, happiness  with a subtle business message
