Search Engine Optimization for WordPress

When it comes to optimizing a WordPress website for the Search Engines there are a lot of websites that are not optimized at all. If you are trying to save money on web development cost and do it yourself, or hire someone to do exactly what you ask them to do, this is usually overlooked. I have reviewed thousands of websites last year and can tell you that a lot of websites could benefit from basic WordPress SEO Configuration. I have performed this for well over 700 websites.

When creating a website with WordPress there are a lot of built in features that can help out with getting listed in the Search Engines. These basic updates and configuration to your WordPress website will help you get started. From Google sitemaps, permalink setup, proper category setup, and more there are a lot of ways to update a website properly. This is before installing any plugins to help you with SEO. Installing a plugin is one. Having a properly configured website, SEO plugins, and proper setup make a lot of difference.
There are plugins to help you with meta data, description, title and other basic SEO elements. Without proper setup these tools are useless. Without proper guidance or even a 30 minute conversation with an SEO specialist can greatly improve how successful your website is in the future. If your website is configured properly from the start the long term affects of SEO will continue for a long time. WordPress is designed to help you take advantage of how Search Engines work. If you start publishing content with the wrong setup and configuration reversing those changes in the Search Engines can take a long time.
When you migrate an existing website to WordPress, you need to let the Search Engines know where the content is has been relocated to. If you do not have a properly configured website and proper technical assistance to move your website then all the design in the world cannot save you from losing out on traffic and the benefits of the new WordPress website.
If your thinking about updating your 1997 website to WordPress, and want to get started with Search Engine optimization choose a web design and development company that has your back. WordPress Development and WordPress Hosting by Solarblu.net Chicago,IL

How many chargebacks can your webhosting company handle ?

A few things to get off my mind. I am stuck by the audacity of some web hosting companies and their inability to understand customer’s behavior or how to deal with processes. A Customer usually chargeback when they are unhappy, or if they don’t understand the charge. They can be unhappy for a variety of reasons. They cannot understand the charge if a someone else who has permission to use the card to make the charge didn’t inform them of the purchase. Visa and Mastercard regulations state that the client needs to communicate with the vendor before contacting their credit card company. Most of us from the industry know that this does not happen. This is not how clients handle their dissatisfaction or questions about activity on their credit card.

As a merchant you are required to handle a low volume of risk, this is a percentage that the merchant sets on your account. As your sales volume increases so does your risk potential. As you take on more customers you are opening yourself up to the ability to have more clients contact their credit card company before they contact you about their issue. This increases the threshold of chargeback volumes. The higher the price of the items you are selling such as VPS or Dedicated Servers as compared to shared hosting plans the closer you get to this threshold with each individual chargeback. The chargeback percentage is set by your merchant account is not dependent on if you win or lose. If you exceed this percentage your account is terminated and you start losing the ability to accept credit cards.

It is your job as a merchant to find solutions that reduce chargebacks, fight chargebacks and win chargebacks. It is a process that most web hosting companies do not even consider when they are going to the merchant account system to get an account. A lot of smaller web hosting companies just starting out will tell you a few interesting things. One that thing they will tell you is that their percentage of risk is very slim, they are not allowed to have that many chargebacks in the first place. The second thing they will tell you is how hard it was to get a merchant account especially from a traditional bank once they said they were in the web hosting industry.

When you have online sales and no face-to-face customer interaction the risk for fraud is greater. The risk for customers not knowing how to respond to situations is greater. The risk for identity theft, email fraud, and general credit card fraud are greater. As a web hosting company there are limited options and business practices to keep you from accepting these transactions as the systems you use are designed to help you accept payments easily not fight chargebacks.

Transparency on issues – Hostgator

I am proud to be recommending Hostgator as one of our recommended hosting providers. They have displayed transparency with their recent data center issues. Using social media such as Facebook and Twitter to make sure clients are directed to the proper information, as well as using their blog to communicated issues with their clients. This provides a great transparency needed in the industry. Companies who step up and deal with customer issues, provide clear concise alerts to clients, and who work hard to keep people informed deserve an mention once in a while. Way to go Hostgator. I know this issue has it’s own set of problems that will take a bit to get resolved, I also understand that you are not the only company in this datacenter experiencing this issue.

Today our Provo, Utah datacenter experienced outages that may have affected access to your website and account services. At this time, all services have been restored.
I would like to extend my sincerest apologies for this occurrence, as well as the negative impact that it may have had on your websites and businesses.
The outages began during routine maintenance which traditionally has been completed without any disruption. Unfortunately, hardware failures including our core routers cascaded causing downtime and network instability.
Our datacenter technicians reacted immediately, working tirelessly alongside the hardware providers to re-establish connectivity as quickly as possible.
Our engineers are conducting a thorough review of the incident and implementing new processes and safeguards in order to prevent similar occurrences in the future.
Please know that customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us; we are committed to providing you with the high-quality, reliable service that youÂ?ve come to expect and very-well deserve. We apologize for failing to exceed that expectation during this incident.

Mariehosting – Cheap WordPress Hosting

I have used different types of web hosting control panel since I started online and the one that really caught my attention is web hosting with cpanel.
cPanel is the number one used control panel in the world as it is feature rich and user friendly. Personally, I am using web hosting with cpanel control by Hostgator. The reason why I am a cpanel lover is because it is the only control panel that can gives me a full view of all the statistics for my web hosting account.

Below are the benefits of web hosting with cpanel:

Benefit of Web Hosting With Cpanel

#1) It has a stats sidebar that list you everything from your domain name, disk space usage, monthly bandwidth transfer, email accounts, sub domains, parked domains, SQL database and many more. It gives you a complete view of your whole hosting account without the need to click here and there to view some stats.
Benefit of Web Hosting With Cpanel

#2) My Cpanel web hosting with Hostgator has the Fantastico Deluxe feature that allows me to install up to 52+ FREE scripts instantly and easily with a click of a button. With a click of the mouse, you can instantly install a script without any programming knowledge.
Benefit of Web Hosting With Cpanel

#3) Cpanel also allows the users to switch the interface of the control panel to suit their preference. Therefore it gives you an option to switch to a interface that you find the most easiest to use.

Benefit of Web Hosting With Cpanel

#4) As most internet marketers are using web hosting with cpanel, therefore most of the scripts or softwares are demonstrated with cpanel instead of other control panels. Therefore you will find it easier to install those software to your website as you are using the same cpanel control panel as them.

Personally, I will only use web hosting with cpanel as it is the most user friendly control panel I have used so far.
