Do our plans cover website check-ups? Absolutely! All our Web hosting plans include analytics to help you evaluate your site's health.

Read our  article on the Five Numbers to Check Each Week.

Ho! Ho! Ho!  Merry Meta Tags!

Don't count on Santa to bring you new customers. Clean up your meta tags to drive more clicks to your website. The meta description tag for each page contains the copy visitors see on the search engine results page.  It doesn't affect your search engine ranking, but it could convince customers to click your link if it's well written.

It's easy to find your meta tag description (and your competition's!)  Just type in a URL, right-click the Web page and click View Source. In the code look for the words that follow <meta name="description" content= in the header.

Update your meta tags in the program you used to create your website, so you can get more traffic, especially this holiday season.
