I’ve written previously about my love of reading my RSS feed on my phone before I go to sleep every night. It’s the perfect way for me to end my day. However, there is one bad trend I notice on mobile sites and it really interferes with what I want to do on the site - READ IT. Shocking, right? So many of the sites that I click through to read I’m greeted with a giant and obno ...
There are times where I am searching for a business, band, restaurant, whatever, and the top result is a Google+ Place page, or a Yelp page. Or worse, a Facebook page. No real website. This usually happens with smaller or new businesses. Don’t get us wrong. Having a Facebook, Google+ Page, and Yelp pages are great, and will definitely help your search engine ranking.
Look at you with that fancy new website! Now you can sit back and relax until it’s time to redo your website in a few years, right? Wrong. So wrong. Websites are like cars, they need regular maintenance. Like, what would you do if your website kept making a cuuur-CHUNK noise every time you turned left? What would you do? What WOULD you do? Never fear, your trusted LyntonWe ...
You may have heard that it’s been a busy week for WordPress hackers this past week. If you haven’t heard, it’s been a busy week for WordPress hackers this past week. ArsTechnica has reported that over 100,000 sites have been infected by these attacks. In under four days, three of my personal sites have had over 800 malicious login attempts. That’s over 8 attempts every hour.
When you’ve been building websites for as long as we have you hear a lot of lies, falsehoods, misconceptions, and other stuff that makes you do that confused dog look. Don’t fear, though. We’re here to clear some of these things up for you. Here are 4 website lies that you really should stop listening to: 1. My website needs to be above the fold.
We’re long past the days where you could run a business without a website. You need one. That’s not even debated any more. But now that you do have a website (if not, call us) are you talking to your audience? Like, are you truly speaking to them? First off, are you using language that is way above, or way below your target audience’s understanding? If your target audience are ...
Congratulations. Launching a website is a big deal. We should know, we launch a lot of websites. But now that design, development, and quality assurance testing are done and you’ve launched your site, that doesn’t mean that you can kick up your feet and relax. No, your work is just beginning. Your website is a living, breathing part of your sales team. You need to make sure you keep it going.
QA. Quality Assurance. If you’ve worked on any type of project before you’ve probably heard this term before. If you haven’t, QA is the process during a project where you put the thing you’re working on, in our case, websites, under a series of tests and user scenarios. QA is an important process in any project to ensure that your product is 100% ready for launch.
I love Twitter. I first signed up in June of 2007 and never looked away. I was instantly hooked, and I'm very vocal about my love for Twitter, as well as helping new users learn how to use the service. Things on Twitter moved a bit slower back then. It was easy to follow a couple hundred people and still read your entire feed easily.
I never was a big reader. My mother fought and fought with me to get me to read as a child. As an adult I try to read, but I get bored with books halfway through and abandon them and never look back. But one thing I do read consistently (besides comic books that is) is my RSS feed. I love reading blogs. I end every day by opening my RSS reader on my phone and going through the day’s news.
Don’t tell my LyntonWeb coworkers in the Marketing Department, but I don’t like marketing emails. They’re fine people (mostly), and create great content for LyntonWeb and our customers. But it’s some of our colleagues in the marketing world that give marketers a bad name. Do you remember when you first got an email address? For me it was back in 1995, and any new email back then was exciting.
We’ve been banging the responsive website drum for some time now. We relaunched our website last summer with a responsive design built on top of HubSpot’s powerful COS. And we’ve been launching responsive websites for our clients on both HubSpot and WordPress since. Do you need a responsive website? Short answer: Yes. Long answer: Hell yes.
Back in February I received a very troubling email. I use a security plugin called Wordfence for my personal WordPress sites. They notified me that I was likely hacked, moments after malicious code was inserted into my site. I jumped in to investigate without really know what I was doing. I logged onto my FTP and saw some folders and files that I did not upload.

Yesterday the FCC announced a major change in their stance on net neutrality which could have dramatic effects on the Internet, and the future. What is net neutrality? Net neutrality is the idea or belief that all Internet service providers (ISPs) and governments should treat all internet data and traffic equally, and not discriminate against specific users, content, platforms, etc.
I’ve made it no secret that I’m a big comic book nerd. I love super heroes and I don’t care who knows it. When I have to explain something technical or complex to people, I’ll almost always relate it to super heroes because that’s what is on my mind 86% of the time (when I'm not at work thinking of websites and inbound marketing).
