PCS-new-homepage

What you’re looking at now is the new homepage for Precision Cutting Services. Precision Cutting Services is a high quality tree cutting and lawn care business that performs work in the Hamden and southern Connecticut area. We’ve been performing a wide range of work for Precision Cutting Services for quite some time now. As stated above, we just relaunched their site with a new responsive theme which provides their web portal with several great features. First of all it looks great. It features large, clear pictures of the Precision Cutting Services’ crew at work. Moreover, the theme transforms the website into a responsive viewing experience for mobile devices and tablets. So now it will look just as good on them as it already does on desktops and laptops.

Creating sites with responsive themes serves to not only improve their look but also helps their rankings as it is one of the many features that Google takes into account when placing sites in search results.

It features a CMS which will allow them to update content on the site as they see fit.

Your Website and eCommerce

There are some great options for adding eCommerce to an existing website but all involve a variety of considerations

1) How many products are you selling? If it’s just a few, you can skip custom cart development and use PayPal buttons. Make a great product page, and get the code from Paypal. No worries about security certificates and it’s easy to add new products just by adding new pages and generating new buttons. The major downside of this is that there is no “customer management” built into the website and PayPal’s merchant fees are high on a per-transaction basis. But it is by far the easiest way to set up eCommerce on a site. We also set up a payment page for consultants so their clients can pay online through their website.

Spam domain renewal – Domain Notification – This is your Final Notice of Domain Listing

I have received half a dozen of these in the last week. The emails are unsolicited offers to “renew” your domain with the phrase” Final notice” in the subject to get people to open it. The top looks like this:
domain renewal spam email letter-top

Then we have the “Scare Line”

scare-line

And Finally, the false savings:
false domain savings

$75 for one year? This company and most of our clients are registered with GoDaddy, which has their own methods of boosting sales, but charges a fair price of around $12 per year for domain registration. Savings will not be found in this offer or ones like it!

Other info about this spam domain renewal email

The messages come from “codero.com” and also mentions “sesubmission.com“. It’s a shady tactic but perfectly legal. As they say in the fine print at the bottom:

Note that THIS IS NOT A BILL. This is a solicitation. You are under no obligation to pay the amounts stated unless you accept this offer. … There is no pre-existing relationship between DS and the domain mentioned above. This notice is not in any part associated with a continuation of services for domain registration.

Need great advice on an on-call basis? You need 3PRIME in your corner! We offer fair billing and never misrepresent what we do. Check out our testimonials and contact us today!

aio-seo pack for wordpress and the %post_title% as text

I ran into this issue for someone this week when cleearing out issues from Google webmaster tools. specifically I was trying to remove the problem of duplicate descriptions for web pages from their blog posts. here’s what All-in-One-SEO has for the meta description setting:

normal-description

Here’s what I wanted it to do:

description-with-%post_title%

But what it did was put add this text to the beginning of my meta description tag!

I tried several other combinations, no luck. so I contacted the plugin developer and said:

Referring to this thread:
I have a client using this plugin, the free version, and I cannot get the meta description in posts to display the %post_title%. I was wondering if this bug was fixed in the pro version.

In their second response I gleened the following solution! Put this as your description:

description-with-%wp_title%

And Viola! My post title, pulled in using the variable “%wp_title%” is included in my meta description. Thanks Semper Fi Web Design, great plugin and valueble support responses!

Better Results In Less Than 1 Month

Three weeks ago 3PRIME was contacted by an Optometrist based in Florida, who was referred to us from a longtime client. The doctor came to us looking for a way to improve his web presence.

The website he had been using at the time was static and it was nearly impossible to have it updated in a timely manner. Worst of all the site wasn’t ranked in Google so the amount of people accessing it was extremely limited.

So 3PRIME took the static site and rebuilt it as a WordPress website and launched it on Friday 1/20/2012. We checked back on it just this morning and found out that the homepage had been spidered in Google along with four other inner pages.

When we searched for the primary term that we built into the revamped homepage even we were surprised by what we saw. You can see from the picture insert how the website shot through the ranking. If you’re interested in results like this then make sure to contact 3PRIME.
