n the 1990’s, over two thousand search engines competed for a share of the Internet search market. Google, who launched in 1999, disrupted the search market and within two years captured from 65 to 95% share. Their influence on the search market is so pervasive that the company name is now a verb to describe searching.

Google struggled to find a business model until 2003 when it launched its Google AdWords Program. Since that time its Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising model has grown in to a $52B per year business. Google discovered that searches for specific items often led to purchases from vendors that the search results linked to. So instead of charging for impressions, as was the default at the time, Google charged its customers for links that were clicked. Google search has the highest conversion rate and one of the lowest Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) ratios among advertising programs.

Gateway to Ireland

Standing as the gateway to the south and west of Ireland, Limerick may not be a traveller's most natural choice for a place to spend a vacation. This is probably due to the reputation that precedes it, which centres on the troubles that beset the town from time to time. However, like all big cities this is exaggerated. As Ireland’s third largest city, Limerick offers a warm and hospitable welcome that matches anywhere else on the Emerald isle.

According to Trustwave‘s 2015 Security Report, 98% of the applications tested were found to have at least one vulnerability, while most had many more. This joint webinar will be a deep dive into the current attack landscape and demonstrate how a KEMP LoadMaster ADC – which ships with an application firewall powered by Trustwave’s ModSecurity – will simplify security and enhance workload performance.

There can be only one best time to share content. Really?

The perennial blog post that keeps appearing: "Whats the best time topost" blog that every online marketing blog keeps throwing up. This concept I've never had time for. 
For one thing, it was almost always a Thursday that everyone suggested, and that didn't sound very scientific at all.

A lovely review of Limerick

Our time in Limerick was infuriating. Why? During our Ireland road trip, we only allotted one day to tour the city, and I ached the whole time for more time to explore! The city has SO much more to offer than we realized, from arts, to nightlife, to historic castles. Let’s take a peek at lovely Limerick, shall we?

An Ireland travel plan should include Limerick thanks to its attractions like King John's Castle and its up-and-coming restaurants, hotels, arts, and nightlife!

Modern web and application infrastructures are continuously expanding: shop systems, customer communication, order management, helpdesks, internal collaboration and communications as well as various backend applications all demand their fair share of server performance and uptime. To prevent this slew of systems from cannibalizing each other, large corporations have long used efficient network management techniques and a special type of network device called a server load balancer or application delivery controller. Our four-part blog provides you with a first insight into the technology and how it can be put to good use in SMB scenarios.
