If you are concerned at all about writing content for your blog or web site, know this: quality and quantity matter equally.The more often you write the better off you are and the quality matters too. Don't write an article simply so you have something new on your site, write something that matters and is worth reading. Think of your audience, would they want to spend time reading the information? The other thing to remember is, your ultimate goal is to communicate with your customers not simply to gain a higher ranking on Google. You are much better off writing a 1 paragraph article once a day than a 2 page article once a month.Keep your content relatively consistent, especially if its in a blog format. Don't jump around too much, if your content scope is too wide and varied

A question I get asked a lot is 'How do I get listed in Google so everyone sees me?'.  The answer is the same for everyone, I tell everyone the same thing.  Its a simple concept, but its not easy to implement.  There are two components, your site and all the other sites that link to you. The Code: The site's coding, using proper heading tags, ALT tags on the images Eternal Existence: A longer domain renewal length, its cheaper to buy 1 year at a time, but a longer domain renewal shows a more stable and established site. Need for Speed: High bandwidth server connection at a larger server 'farm', you want your site on a high-speed connection at a recognized server farm.  Google sees this and it shows your site is technically stable. Keyword Density:  This is probably the one you are the most familiar

I'm constantly telling people that they need to keep up on their blogs, and keep their web sites up to date with fresh and new content.  Well, I've been so wrapped up in my customer projects I have neglected my own web site. Many people have reminded me recently that I need to update, and of course all the e-mail asking for an update on the blog.  Well here it is! The title of this post is Focus.  The focus of your web site should be the content, all too often people spend extraordinary amounts of time refining every little graphic detail, selecting the best fonts and then when it comes to content they write whatever they need to shut me up and get their site done.  Folks, thats not the way it works.  Content is king!  The focus of your web

Well folks, there is a new war of the web, a new browser war has started. The introduction of Google's Chrome has a lot of people scared, and rightfully so. Google is a juggernaut on the web and holds some serious stock power onWall street. Just days ago they announced the beta release of their new web browser entitled Chrome, which has so far been received with great fanfare. We've downloaded it here at QC Total Tech, it boasts a large web page viewing area, a sleek design and faster performance. I've been a big fan of FireFox, but just after using Chrome for a few minutes I found myself seeing FireFox as clunky What's interesting is just days before Chrome's release Mozilla announced Ubiquity, which is a great new communication software that within time could replace Thunderbird and rival Outlook.

I'm a web site designer and I talk to a lot of people every week about new web sites. I used to partner with an advertising agency who resold sites I built and usually designed. This ad firm like many agencies and web site design studios out there put their focus on the wrong thing.  They focus almost exclusively on how the web site looks instead of what the web site does.  It is just the same as dating, looks only get you so far but its the inside that matters.  Having a great attention capturing front page is vital to your site, but there is so much more to it
