Why are my emails bouncing back?

By Published 3 November 2016

If your emails bounce then it means that they’re over-quota. This means that the allocated space that has been set aside on our servers for your emails is full.

As your hosting provider, we simply provide you with an email address, the information required to set it up and allocated space (at least 250MB) on the server to enable you to use the account. We can provide more space if required but we will charge for this extended service.

Recently we have had an increase in the amount of customers telling us that their emails have stopped working or that they have had a message saying that their server space is over quota. The frequency of these reports has increased in-line with the increase of updated mobile devices. Read the rest of this entry »

The Google Clock is Ticking

By Published 5 March 2015

Despite all of the noise on the internet over the last few months about making sure that your website is mobile friendly, it’s amazing how many haven’t got around to it yet!

Google (other search engines are available) is now starting to slap a few wrists! It’s a bit like leaving your car in a public carpark for too long, you just know that you’re going to get a ticket! Well if you leave your website alone and immobilised for too long, Google will penalise you! Read the rest of this entry »

Who Shot The SEO Expert?

By Published 19 January 2015

I may have mentioned before that website promotion is more research than glitz and glamour. For me I find statistics and trends fascinating but not in a boring way. I actually hated mathematics in my formative years due mostly to the unapproachable attitude of my teacher.

When I am working on website promotion I don’t see it as math, I see it more like forensic science. What has happened, why has it happened, what has changed, what could have caused things to happen, what changes have I made and what impact have they had. Read the rest of this entry »

By Published 10 September 2014

By Published 8 August 2014

Has SEO outgrown its acronym?

By Published 20 June 2014

We have now moved into a period of time when the good people at Google and the other search engine providers; are focused more than ever before on the relevant results returned by search engines following searches conducted by human beings.

Before we put the flags out let’s take a quick look at how this has happened. You have no doubt heard the phrase “I will look it up on the internet!” or “I’ll do a search!” The first statement is false! Without some form of index it would be impossible to find anything on the internet. For those of a certain age you may remember names like Excite an early web search established in 1993, or LookSmart, or how about Altavista? These were all early developers of what we now call Search Engines!
