Website Optimised or just Optimistic?

Is your website Optimised or are you just being Optimistic?

For many businesses the focus when starting out on their Internet campaign is the design of a great looking website, a website that not only looks good but also reflects the right image for the business. However, it is also very important that the company website lists well in the major search engines and many businesses quickly move to measuring the value of their website in terms of the number of visitors to the website. Why, because what is the point of having a great looking website if no one can find it and it attracts only minimal traffic. Businesses quickly become aware that increased levels of traffic can potentially lead to potential for increased sales and market profile.

One thing to consider is that over 80% of all Internet traffic comes from the major search engines with Google, Yahoo and MSN currently responsible for the vast majority of all Internet traffic. With such an overwhelming amount of traffic coming from the search engines, it makes sense to put a lot of effort getting your website noticed.

Regardless of how you measure the success of your website, the bottom line is that to succeed on the Internet you are going to have to bring more visitors that are looking for the information, content and/or products that you are providing.

Bill Limits EU Data Roaming Charges

Bill Limits EU Data Roaming Charges
Greater protection to prevent mobile phone and computer users from running up large data bills when overseas has come into force across the EU.

New rules mean that users will be automatically cut off when their monthly bill for using the internet abroad reaches 50 euros (£41), excluding VAT. Customers will receive a warning when they have used 80% of this limit. They can set their own monthly cut-off point by contacting their provider.

Accessing the internet via your mobile phone while abroad is called “data roaming”.

The move follows cases where people built up massive bills by watching videos or downloading music while abroad. “There will be no more bill shocks for tourists or business travellers surfing the internet with smart phones or laptops while in another EU country,” said the European Commissioner for Digital Agenda, Neelie Kroes.
