This is a very important post for any business, organization or individual with a website. Starting now (October 2017), most sites will display a “Not Secure” warning in Google Chrome browser (and eventually others) if they have not upgraded from “http” to “https”. In particular, the warning will appear if information is collected in any of the following ways:
Hotels, Flights, Cruise Vacations and other online travel booking items have always been popular internet searches, either for personal or business purposes. I re-designed a website I originally built over 10 years ago to sell travel services through my affiliate relationships with Travelocity, Hotels.com, Trivago, Priceline, and other vendors.
My new website is mobile-responsive and a great example of how anyone can monetize a personal blog or website, or add an income stream to an existing commercial site by placing text ads or banner ads to items that are related to the main theme of your site. Visit www.TravelUSAandWorld.com/ to see how I optimized it with my own keywords so that I had a chance of ranking in Google search results. Make hotel or flight reservations while you’re there, and you’ll be helping to support several gratis websites I’ve built for local Wilmington, Delaware area non-profits!
WordPress is by far the world’s most-used content management system (CMS) for building websites. It’s estimated that over 25% of sites are WordPress websites. The good news to the business owner is that most web designers are familiar with it and that it’s easy to find help or plugins or themes if you do it yourself.
The downside of WordPress being so prevalent is that it’s a big target for hackers, viruses, and other people with bad intentions. Keeping your site secure and up-to-date is becoming more and more important. There are numerous plugins to choose from for you or your webmaster to combat threats. I will share some of the ones that I recommend.
Posters, graphics and wall art are a popular item to purchase online, either for personal or business purposes. I re-designed a website I originally built 8 years ago to sell posters and prints online through my affiliate relationship with AllPosters.com, the world’s largest poster store.
My new website is mobile-responsive and is a great example of how anyone can monetize a personal blog or website, or add an income stream to an existing commercial site by placing text ads or banner ads to items that are related to the main theme of your site. Visit http://PostersandWallArt.com to see how I optimized it with my own keywords so that I had a chance of ranking in Google search results. Buy a Wilmington DE motivational poster or a cute kittens poster or funny poster while you’re there!
