Divi 3.0 May Cost Us Our Web Design Jobs

On September 7th 2016, Elegant Themes released their much-anticipated update to the already amazing Divi theme, and it’s taken web design to a whole new level. A level I hadn’t even imagined before.

A Blog that is not a Blog – An easy way to convince your clients they need one

I’m sure you’ve encountered this before. A client says they want their website to be listed at the top of Google’s search results, and they want to know how to get there. For years the answer was fairly simple. Make sure they had a well-built keyword rich site, which hopefully they did, since you built it for them, and try to get as many backlinks as possible. You would tell them to contact groups, organizations, clubs, associations, etc., and ask for links back to their site. They could even pay for backlinks if they wanted, although not a recommended method, it did work for some. After all, the more links the better. When Google saw how many backlinks their site had, it would automatically move them up the rankings. With enough backlinks, a site could reach the top of the list for their given keyword. Easy as pie. This method actually worked for a while, but some people started gaming the system and Google soon stepped in.
