Matt Cutts, from Google, explains how Google Search works in simple terms and sums it up in a 7 minute and 45 second video. This is a very good and concise explanation of the question we get asked many times.
We are excited to bring in the New Year and make 2010 even better than 2009! Webnovate has been doing Utah Web Design for over 10 years and each year is constantly changing. We are excited to see what 2010 brings as in Web Development, it is a constantly changing industry and 1 year is quite some time for the latest trends and technologies.
In 2009 we saw a rush in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and it actually became a buzz word. I would say that it started to become more of a buzz word a few years ago, but in 2009 it was much more common when discussing website needs and it has been adopted into mainstream language. Many of our customers are realizing the importance of SEO and SEM campaigns and how you can have the best looking site out there, but it doesn’t mean much unless you are getting found in Search engines. The Yellow pages are slowly dying and Google, Yahoo, Bing, MSN, and others are the main way that people will find your company.
I would also say that some of the other more popular request were for Content Management Systems (CMS). Webnovate did a lot of work with CMS websites and helped many clients in getting their CMS websites up and running. Our Customers are amazed at how easy it is to update their own websites and how good they can look. Our latest was for a non-profit that is rather large in Utah and is for a great cause, www.friendsforsight.org.
Perhaps the biggest change in 2009, was the explosion of Social Networking. Social Networking increased dramatically with the popularity of Facebook and Twitter. While they have been around for a few years, it seems that 2009 was a huge year for these 2 in particular. It is not uncommon to hear celebrities talking about what they “tweeted” about or their “facebook page”. They can utilized as great tools for any business in many ways, including keeping their friends and customers up-to-date on their services and offers.
So here is to 2010, Webnovate is excited and ready to play around with the latest trends and technologies as that is what keeps our job so entertaining and enjoyable!
