web host service availability

one of the most importing criteria when choosing a web hosting is the service availability, it is calculated with ratio and generally it is about 99% and mor precisely between 99,0% to 99,9% for premium web hosting, lets take an example 000webhsot is a free web hosting that I use a lot and if you check their web site you will find that the available service is 99% but they mention that their servers reach generally 99,9% then when w check their premium hosting we read 99,9% of availability
but what does it mean 99% availability?
we know a month is 30 days and a day is 24 hours and an hour is 1440 minutes

99,0% availability means the server shouldn't go down for more than 14,4 minutes in a day or 7,2 hours per month
99,9% availability means the server shouldn't go down for more than 1,44 minutes in a day or 43,2 minutes per month

you see, at first glance it looks like 99,0% or 99,9% is not a big deal but when you see how much your server can go down (and that means no visitors, no emails no sales, no conversion) 432 minutes per month vs 43,2 minutes per month it is 388,8 minutes almost 6,48 hours between 99,0% and 99,9%

hope this article was useful for you

Mobile friendly website

Those last years, the uses of mobile devices has rised substancially, and google know it, this is why they set their ranking algorithm to take in consideration mobile frienlyness to better rank a website, google also put a tool to check a mobile friendlyness test at this adress: https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly  , and not only for google it is also good for the site owner to get a mobile friendly web site
One example is a web site we were working on (rapide car) a car rental agency, when created we were not focusing at the mobile friendlyness, but after, we noticed that we passed from 33% mobile visitors to 55% in average (Data from google analytics) so it was a must update to mobile friendlyness and that what we did, and in less in a week the website ranking won some places in the google search engine (Data from Pro Rank Tracker)
So, if you are making a web site, be sure to make it mobie freindlyness

Domain life and CEO

The domain lifespan is an important criteria for CEO

The more lifespan a domain has the more the website will be well ranked

this is a logic reflexion when we know that google ranking is based on the quality, a big lifespan means your website is serious, is here to last

next time you would like to launch a new website think about buying an existing domain, or, if you would like to buy a new one, think to register it for more than 1 year, generally it will cost you less and let you be better ranked

Paid or Free / open source software

Lot of users of the most used softwares use a #cracked version of the software, whatever how much those big companies such as #microsoft or #adobe are making, it doesn't give us the right to use #illegally their products, Instead we can try to find some #opensource softwares, may be not as #powerfull but it is better than #robbery.


In this photo for exeple, you can see some of the most used softwares but in opensource alternative
#msoffice = #OpenOffice
#photoshop=#gimp
#adobe #illustrator=#inkscape
#msoutlook #outlook=#mozilla #thunderbird
Adobe #dreamwaver=#aptana #aptanastudio

For the OS, you can try #linux instead of #windows

Live videos feature on social networks

In the last three years, a big thing was rising on social networks: the live videos, Instagram facebook youtube

Today this feature is lunched on android version of instagram, can you imagine how much it would cost to get a live video app for a small company? and how to get all people watch this live, and make them download a this app?? a lot of money, and lot of time and work to manage all this, but now those features are more and more available in social networks for free!! that is a big plus for communication strategy in business, social networks are some of the most visited networks on the internet, majore part of people have those social netoworks apps on their mobiles, so, you don't have to make a dedicated app, you don't have to spend lot of work and time to get people, they are already here, and now, the LIVE feature.

how's that benefic for busines??

- By using instagram or exemple with a good strategy to get followers, small business can use the live feature on a scheduled time to introduce a new product, to make some relation with the followers, to describe a feature on the product.
- In the live video we can have ineteraction
- With the live videos we get more chances to be watched cause people sometimes see a video published and skeep it for later and forget it, but in the live video, they know if they miss it, they maybe can't watch it later, or interact with it, so, they will prefere to watch it at time.
- It can be used by some reporters organization (magazins) to make live shows

Something excellent is rising with this new feature of live videos that I think is the real new fearture for social networks and gonna make some noise in future.
