Do you understand the purpose of your website ?

Most marketing folks do not understand that your web site is your digital property, and that you need to have a reception area for each department, which would be your primary landing page for that section  of your web site.  this blog-post discusses these issues from a #FUFISM  based marketing perspective.

Thanx to +Irfan Ahmad  for this INFOGRAPHIC discussing web trends
 
Web Design Trends 2016 - infographic
http://www.digitalinformationworld.com/2016/01/infographic-web-design-trends-2016.html

No doubt, fashion is quite transient. The same can be said about the fashion for web design: many of the trends that have been at the peak of popularity 2–3 years ago, no more exists. Yet it would be foolish to say that trends are unpredictable at all. Actually, they can be predicted if one closely monitors the needs of the audience along with the latest technical developments and progress in general.

Have you fallen into the trap ?

Do you believe that link building is DEAD ?

Well link building and link acquisition are two of the most important segments of your SEO, and you need to take great care to ensure that the inbound links to your online content are meaningful, and of the highest quality, as these are the primary tools used by most search engines to establish semantic trust factors between different digital entities and your online content.

SEO  or Search Engine Optimization is such a complicated affair that is evolving and growing in complexity as search engines add new and innovative ways of evaluating your online content, but links are still one of the biggest concerns for all search engines.

This set of tools is very helpful in evaluating your link profile and related semantic trust issues and is worth the time taken to read and Understand.

Thanx to +Brandon Leibowitz  for this very helpful  link to the tools needed to better manage your link profile and related issues.

What are your views on link building and link acquisition?
Ahrefs, a new marketing research tool, is necessary for webmasters. Ahrefs currently supports 9 countries and over 45 million keywords. These numbers are

#FUFISM   
 
How to automatically integrate your future posts into the map layer of the community:

~ Step 1) Write in a new post a description of the biocultural diversity from where you work, live or simply want to present,
~ Step 2) Write this hashtag at the end of your post: #minchizu
~ Step 3) Click on the map location icon (third icon at bottom left corner of your new post) to search and add the relevant location to your post.
~ Step 4) Eventually illustrate your post by adding either your own photo or a web-link (to an article, a photo or a video) by clicking on the photo icon or link icon (first two icons at the bottom left corner of your post).
~ Step 5) finalize by clicking on "post", et voila!

After few minutes your post should be integrated into the map layer right here: http://goo.gl/adN1Tu. This is very simple so go for it and together we can build the largest map database on biocultural diversity.

Do you trust science?

If not why do you not  trust science?
 
Ever hear someone say they don't trust science because "Scientists keep changing their minds"?

The problem isn't science. For one thing, science really "changing its mind" is a good thing because science is an ever-evolving process leading always closer to The Truth.

But more often the problem isn't careful science, but popular science reporting, which leads people to believe that a single study or preliminary research "proves" something, which then becomes "science says...."

In this post +Brandon Withrow​ of +The Curious Ape​ provides us with several great examples of how real science progress through many wrong (or partially-wrong) answers to arrive at what is actually the case.
Real science reporting is often rushed, obscured, and damaged by clickbaity titles. Real science takes time.

I help people build Functional User Friendly Integrated Social Media Platforms so that their audience can find and enjpoy their online content
Introduction
Most people remember me well and never forget my socks, because if, and when I wear shoes and socks, I wear ODD socks.  Many talk about my ODD socks and some even refer to me as Frankie two socks. 

I enjoy the great out doors and eating fresh fish I caught myself is my favorite treat. The Elephant Coast of KZN South Africa with its laid back and friendly people is where I prefer to be, when I am not in the office and promoting FUFISM or Functional User Friendly Integrated Social Media  as the best marketing philosophy along with Google Apps for business as a business administrative package.

Great atmosphere and the service was quite a surprise, much better than I was lead to believe. very friendly and the parking lot was very clean and well maintained. the hawkers out side were also well mannered and very pleasant, with a wide variety of touristy goods for sale on the grass patch just out side the restaurant, but not in the view between the restaurant and the ocean very nice well managed place with friendly staff... EDIT : 05 September : they are upgrading the parking lot, here at C-Bali, so one needs to park on the grass behind the restaurant, but there is still plenty parking and there is some security. the hawkers are now on the west side of the restaurant on the grass as well...

I first got to know Jason T Wiser through his HOA's (Hangout On Air) and enjoyed these so much that I decided to take a peep see what his web site had to offer, and was very pleasantly surprised. Jason's view of things within the online world does not conform to the majority, and puts many things into a different perspective that is easy to understand and put to use in promoting your online content to your target audience in more effective and simpler ways. The On Track Tips HOA's (Hang Out On Air) are always entertaining and have so many take aways, most of which allow you to see things from a different perspective, so that you have a deeper understanding of the many strange things that impact on your online marketing. I promote the #FUFISM marketing philosophy and Jason's work seems to gel well with this new marketing philosophy where SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and your target market research form 2 of the primary pillars that allow you to integrate your online marketing and off line marketing into one single well managed marketing effort. FUFISM or Functional User Friendly Integrated Social Media is a new concept, but the On Track Tips series seems to have a deep understanding of this concept, where your marketing is done in a very holistic manner, which use many different tactics to ensure that your intended target market enjoy your online content. The Wiser sites platform also seems to understand these issues and is very user friendly, so they get a 5 star rating from me.

This is a great shopping center with movie houses, restaurants, and a wide variety of shops to suit nearly every taste in branded clothing, they have a well manged tourist info center, and an internet cafe for those who need to catch up on their emails or social media activities. There are a few different supermarkets and there is more than enough parking that is well managed and very safe.

Shelly Beach Ski Boat Club is the base for many boat based adventure activities, with fishing and marine mammal tours being the most popular. the club house is very welcoming, and they have a great restaurant with pub where the service is truly top notch. I was made to feel right at home and enjoyed the company. There is an NSRI base at the club which is well maintained and very active. the crew and management here are truly friendly and always happy to help one out with information about the local fishing conditions and the best boats for the different tourism activities like diving, fishing or the marine mammal tours.
