I am offering a free assessment of any web site or business. The assessment will include a high-level analysis of the business, industry, competition, and customers. I take a close look at the places that your web site visitors and prospective customers might come from, and what your competitors are doing with their web presence. For search engine optimization, I conduct an analysis of the key phrases that may be relevant to your business or site, and assess the competitiveness of the search results for those phrases. The assessment will include an estimated page ranking (or range) after site optimization. The assessment will also include some high-level proposals in areas where my services can improve your web presence management.

The assessment is free, with no obligation to purchase any services. For a free assessment, please fill out the form below.

I recently donated some services to a unique Tsunami Relief Project. The project, spearheaded by Larry Benet, provides a unique approach that gives back to those who make donations. Dozens of business leaders, authors, and celebrities have each agreed to donate one hour of their time to the project. When people donate to the Tsunami Relief Project, they get access to teleseminars, 'webinars', and other vaulable expetise and content, that is only available to donors. Ken Blanchard, Mark Victor Hansen, and Jay Abraham are among those who have donated an hour of their time in support of the Tsunami Relief Project. For more information, please the project's web site by clicking here.

I think this great way bring people together to contribute a worthy cost in a way that provides some extra value to donors, as a way of saying thank you for their donations.

Spread the word! If you have blog or web site, please take 5 minutes to post a short message about the Tsunami Relief Project. Together we can all make a major difference in the lives of many affected by this disaster.

Hello,

We have a site which pulls data from an Oracle Database into a web interface.
We complained to our web designer that the URLs have no links.

He says it's because it comes from a database.

Please advise us on this b'cos most of the world's portals and big sites keep their content in databases, including ORACLE databases.

And yet when you look at any CNN, Microsoft or Google News page, the link IS a hyperlink.

Please advise us so we can help the designer realise he's wrong!

Thanks,

BD.

I have finally made the move from shared hosting to a dedicated server. I ordered the managed dedicated web hosting package called "Managed Server II" for $79 per month from 1&1. For $79 per month, you get a P4, 2.4 GHz machine with 512MB of RAM. They called this a Managed Dedicated Server, but it is really more like a shared hosting package, with your account being the only one on the machine. So there are limits to what you can install and configure, but the control panel seems pretty decent and does enable you to changed some "advanced" settings such process timeouts and other performance metrics. For only $59, you can get the same on a Celeron 2.0 Ghz with 256 RAM. Or, if you are more technical than me, and comfortable with Linux, you can get a "Root Server" starting from only $49 per month (note that Root Server packages only include support for hardware issues). For more information, click here (scroll down and click on "Dedicated Server").

My experience so far has been good, but time will tell. The price is right for what I need. With 500,000+ visitors and 3,000,000 page views, I need a machine dedicated to my sites. I will update this entry as time goes by, including both postive and negative feedback. I have had bad experiences with other web hosts (stay away from Webserve and Hypermart), and I know that reading about the experiences of others can be a good way to know what you are getting into.
