Mobile internet use is widely predicted to exceed desktop usage within a couple of years from now, so some sort of mobile optimisation should be a serious consideration for any business. In many ways, this is especially true for small, localised businesses: predictably enough, a lot of mobile searches tend to be focused on finding things nearby - think of ...

The idea behind is to give an optimal browsing experience to your visitor regardless of the device. As the number of your visitors that use a mobile device will almost likely increase instead of decrease it makes totally sense to go that route. There's a number affordable (not to say cheap) themes out there for Blogs and CMS you can immediately try out and ...

It's impossible to prevent your Javascript from being "stolen" because the code is served to the browser. To answer your specific points: 1. I have disabled the right click button of mouse This will have absolutely no effect. No one will ever try to steal code using right click (heck, right click doesn't give access to anything in a browser anyway). So ...

I have disabled the right click button of mouse Don't do this. There are valid uses for right-click that you are blocking in addition to (not) protecting your code. All you'll do is annoy everybody while doing absolutely nothing to stop the people who know enough to try and steal your code in the first place.

You need a website certificate when you need to protect your user's data against eavesdropping in transit. To protect against this, people typically use HTTPS instead of HTTP. For HTTPS the server presents a certificate to the client, the client decides whether to trust that the server is who it claims to be by checking that the certificate has been signed ...

If your website requires users to login to access the content, then nothing beyond the log-in form will be accessible to Google and other search engines (unless you mistakenly expose it). They can't complete authentication, but you may want to consider a more restrictive approach. In terms of the domain result in Google still showing the GoDaddy place-...

I am not sure what your goal is but it sounds like you want to game the search engines and I think that is a waste of time. Sure it might work for a while but Google made 500+ algorithm updates in 2011. If you have something that actually offers value to people then make it available/visible. Tell people about it, make it easy for them to bookmark and share,...

There's no other choice than to get your name out there! You need inbound links to your site, try to reach out to bloggers to talk about your site, start your own blog and talk and link to it. Get on social medias: Facebook Pages, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. Remember to fill out information about your web site. Search for your keywords and check the ...

Make sure to put emphasis on perfecting your <title>, <meta>, and <h1> tags. Thats about all you can do on-site. You might also want to look into Dublin Core and Open Graph tags to give search engine's some more context. If you want more gritty details, there are sites available that will generate complete reports for you (WooRank comes to ...

Note that having this sort of sub-federal jurisdiction above the level of a municipality happens in many countries, not just in the US (e.g Australia, Canada, China, India, Mexico...) To answer your question, you (modiX) need to understand why one would ask for the state (or province or territory). There are two primary reasons: If you need to use old-...

The simplest way to accomplish your task is to: Create a second page aka. "About Timer Tab". There you do not spam, but put your site mission in clear and concise manner. Provide meaningful link to the homepage with proper keyword from about page. Have some valuable resources link to you from their review, e.g. http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/02/asana-...

There's some good feedback here, let me just add some other ideas... If the old content of the homepage is still showing, it might still be on the server. Verify your site in Webmaster Tools and double-check that your hoster isn't doing something like a "frame" of your actual site. You can use "Fetch as Google" and "Submit to indexing" in Google Webmaster ...

There are fringe cases where zip codes can actually cross state lines. Amazingly stupid, but true: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZIP_code#By_geography Following trends blindly might be bad UI design but bucking them without a healthy dose of paranoia is a bad idea too.

I think it's important to first realize that "responsive design" (RD) is a buzz-term (if I put Width:100% to an element I have a RD right there, to exaggerate) and therefor its importance appear more important than it really is as in the end it's conditional as everything else. Is it necessary to implement RD? To answer that you will need to state some ...

Is there some reason this is important enough to have become an argument? (eg. Client is needing to "justify" budget to someone above him, does it change your billing, etc.) The lines have gotten blurred enough in some use cases that it's pretty pointless, really. If I had to play along, I'd actually say neither and call it a "web app" where, as Nathaniel ...

Although you are developing for mobile web, for sure it's a site not an app. Apps are actual applications that are downloaded and installed on your mobile device, rather than being rendered within a browser. For a more comperative explanation please refer to: http://hswsolutions.com/services/mobile-web-development/mobile-website-vs-apps/

The easy answer is yes. if you have 2 domain names for the same thing the organic results might get "divided" between both sites. Like if they were competing for attention. As a rule of thumb it's always easier to market a single domain name. The problem with two is that organic links will be divided. some people will link to your marketing site, others ...

I think I've got a working solution. (see https://stackoverflow.com/a/13675901/984234) <!-- links will work as expected where javascript is disabled--> <a class="intent" href="http://facebook.com/someProfile" data-scheme="fb://profile/10000">facebook</a> And my javascript works like this. note: there's a little jQuery ...

How do I redirect / to /#! I don't think you can! At least not in the way you want to, that will be picked up by the Googlebot. The problem here is that / and /#! are exactly the same URL as far as the server is concerned. The fragment identifier (#!) is never passed to the server. So, when you redirect, you end up with a redirect loop. For example, the ...

Facebook uses OpenGraph to determine what the page is about if those details are blank it will harvest other elements of the page. So if you want custom descriptions and images used then ensure that whatever page is being linked has the following code in the <head></head>. For example: <meta property="og:locale" content="en_GB" /> <...

Depends on the company. Some might be ok with you using the logo, some might not be ok, some might even require you do follow certain rules. For example Microsoft has very specific rules for using their logo: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/legal/intellectualproperty/trademarks/usage/logo.aspx

SoreThumb, it really depends on what you are trying to do. Its very common for people to think their idea is patentable, when it really isn't. Also, think about it.. if you patent it, and put it on the web, anybody from another country can choose to copy it.. (unless you restrict access.. but there' still some vulnerability). Will you have the resources ...

something i would consider is making a small embeddable widget, that someone can place on their site at the bottom of the widget say "stopwatch by brillout.com" or any other keyword that you want to optimise for and have that as a link pointing back to you, this will allow you to have a backlink back to your site. Its half as effective as it used to be ...

You need a SSL certificate for a website if you want the connection between the client and server to be encrypted. The server may already supply a "Self-Signed certificate" which technically allows for encrypting the channel, but not showing any proof that the certificate really belongs to the website. Shopping questions are off-topic, but free providers ...
