But here’s the kicker: it’s not enough. Not only do you need to very quickly convince a searcher that your description in the SERP is their perfect match – you also need them to continue believing that when they arrive at your site.

I’ve got a few pieces of advice to help you get that conversion rate up. [Read more…]

VPN Service

VPN ServiceA VPN (virtual private network) is used for a variety of reasons. Most typically the service is used to allow employees remote access to a secure company network. VPNs can also be used to access websites that are restricted on a network and for the purposes of hiding a users identity. When a VPN is installed on a company’s system and then on an employee’s own laptop or desktop, they are able to access the businesses network and grab files they need without sensitive data being seen by prying eyes.

VPNs are also a great way to access websites that are restricted by a specific geography. Many users take advantage of VPN services so they can watch, for example, a show on NBC when they live in the UK. [Read more…]
