You may have been told that you need a website review. Many business owners dread this process because they do not really understand what happens during this process. What does it mean, exactly, to have your website reviewed? What are the steps that are taken, and what will happen after the review?
As the owner of a website, you do not always need to know everything that goes on “behind the scenes” to elevate your search engine rankings. Most business owners do not really want or need to understand how websites are coded or what types of markup give the best results. However, it is important to understand the basics of what Google and other search engines are looking for so that you can understand why your website is–or is not–ranking well in search engine results.
One easy way to begin understanding these complex issues is to look at what Google calls “Core Web Vitals.” These are three metrics that measure important factors for a website such as interactivity, loading time, and visual stability. By understanding these important points, you can more easily discuss what needs to change on your website with your webmaster or SEO professional.
COVID-19 changed many things about our world, but one of the biggest was the way we work.

Some small- to medium-sized businesses struggle with a basic question: what is the most cost-effective way to handle IT? In some cases, they may believe that it is easier to hire a part-time or full-time dedicated IT employee to handle not only their digital resources but also their internet-based marketing than to outsource these jobs. The question becomes: does it make sense to pay an employee for this work, or should I consider outsourcing this job to a contractor?
Most economists agree that things are starting to look “more normal” after the years 2020-2021 and COVID-19. Little by little, stores are re-opening and shoppers are re-emerging to buy goods in person after nearly 18 months of enforced “curbside pickup” and delivery. However, in-person shopping is not completely back to pre-2020 levels, and may never be. Here are some statistics about online shopping in this new age and what it means for vendors of all types:
