Posted by on Feb 29, 2016 in SEO

A Look Over Our Shoulders in SEO and What to Expect We’ve had another great year at Thinkit Media with advancing the art of ethical search engine optimization. Helping clients see sustainable results from their hard work makes us happy! Needless to say, Google is the 800-pound gorilla that leads all other search engines in bloody rampages against questionable practices and sub-optimal website design. Our own SEO toolkit already stands out for its effective, straightforward techniques that increase traffic and profits while showing deep respect for our clients and their website visitors, but it’s always a good idea to keep a close eye on the gorilla’s mood swings. Let’s take a look at what happened in 2015 and what’s likely to happen in 2016. An Eventful Year for Mobile Computing In early February, many industry observers saw large, unpredictable fluctuations in Google’s results for major classes of keywords, but the search giant’s spokespeople remained tight-lipped about the meaning of these phantom changes. After some speculation on possible e-commerce and mobile-computing optimizations, life went on for SEO experts and webmasters. In mid-April, Google decided to strengthen its support for mobile-friendly computing. The company’s algorithmic updates slammed mobile-device results for millions of websites that Google’s back-room wizards saw as still being...

So, you have had a website for a while, and are pretty proud of it. You have made a few changes over the years and consider yourself someone who keeps up with the times, so you know that you need to move your site to the next level. What is that level? Making your site mobile friendly (and tablet friendly.) When making that decision, there are two options to consider. Either you try to adapt your site to fit the small screen of most mobile devices, or you hire someone to build you an app that can be downloaded and accessed by the general public. While an app may seem like the popular way to go at first, there are some benefits to making your website ready for most smartphones and tablets that you may want to consider first. What does it mean? When making your website ready for smartphones (or to make it more tablet friendly), you are basically taking your site and allowing it to quickly and easily display on most devices. Making your site mobile ready makes it easier to read and navigate for your users, allowing for minimal scrolling and a more responsive design for their device. Using Flash is also avoided, since some tablets...

While there are current trends in web design that will be around for a long time to come, others won’t exist in as little as a year from now. These are just a few of the current and future trends for web design, as well as ones that have already made their way out. Current Trends Responsive design is argued to be one of the most influential trends in web design to date, and there are plenty of reasons why. Responsive design creates a more flexible user experience for website visitors, regardless of the platforms they’re viewing from It’s predicted that responsive design will continue to stick around for a long time to come.

Websites with card/tile layouts are quite a hit at this point in time. Pinterest is a vast online presence that utilizes this layout, and many more entities are beginning to adopt it.

Scambook Website – Ruining Reputations

Posted by on Dec 15, 2014 in reputation repair

Online complaint boards are often viewed by the pubic as the most efficient means of spreading the word about companies or individuals who participate in shady business practices. Supposedly, posts that are of interest to others will be noticed and responded to, with the subsequent increase in pressure on the perpetrator forcing a change in policy. However, these scam report boards are open to everyone, and the content is not monitored to any significant degree by the hosting management. While it is true that many companies are merely a false front for illegitimate and often illegal activities, the registered complaints against firms, individuals, or organizations may themselves be unsubstantiated. One of the popular complaint board sites is Scambook.com, an Internet-based resolution center that receives hundreds of complaint reports each and every day. What Is Scambook? This board was created as a sort of complaint forum for individuals who feel they have been mistreated, harassed, or otherwise led into unscrupulous business practices.
