I always hate when companies get all creative with their phone numbers and have to have letters in the number. My phone doesn’t have the letters with the numbers the way they are on a landline phone. Sure I can get my phone to do that but it is an extra step and lets face it I might be driving so it is a pain. So when I come across your site do me a favor and I won’t leave your site for another…

We’re glad to be back in the land of the tubes. The past two weeks has made for an incredible experience of getting our site back up and working out the finer points with our host.
Before we get into that portion though, we should probably explain why we were down…
As we often point out, we are hosted by Byethost. They and Bluehost are the two hosting companies we’ve come to trust t…

“BACK UP YOUR SITE REGULARLY”
I’m 5 cups of coffee past sanity and still have an hour or two before I can sleep. Recently many of our clients began getting hacked by the children on the Defacement Logging Website that shall remain nameless. (Quite frankly, I don’t want to add ourselves to the hit-list.)
They targeted three of our clients sites this past…
No, this is not a replay of 2002. SQL Injection is still in an active exploit for hijacking and defacing a database driven website. While there are several methods and builds of site that can be attacked in this method, we will be confining our feeds to SQL Injections into a Wordpress MySQL database. Here is the first we will be referencing. It comes from G4B1DEV and is a good artic…
We’ve revived and added new directories to the ever-expanding Naper Design Business Network. While the number of Business Directories is currently limited, there will be many more to come. We are using the DirectoryPress produced by Mark Fail, and will be asking for everyone to list a business that they know of. Our hope is to add 200 businesses a month for each directory. Here is a list of…
So here we have the term Web 3.0 coming into common usage. The problem is, what does it actually mean? Many are scratching their heads and asking, “isn’t that what Web 2.0 was supposed to be about”.
The reference to Web 3.0 was made by members of the W3 to describe the desire for a Semantic Web. This new “Semantic Web” was to be user friendly and interactive… (I know; sounds familiar,…
According to Compete ‘s March 2010 data, HubSpot.com now ranks in the top 1,000 web sites of all sites on the web, with a Compete Rank of 878 ! Compete Rank is based on Compete’s ‘Unique Visitors’ metric , and is often used as a complement to unique visitors to provide a relative metric that shows the significance of a site. We’re extremely proud of this milestone, and we look forward to seeing…
Recently we were contracted to redesign a Magento site that had been set up in a way that was not fitting to the site owners. I’m actually taking a a break from it right now and will have more to post on it in the next few days.
The first post on this program usage will be a bit weak of us. We’re going to restate the innstalation guide and make video of it over the next few days. This…
On a fairly regular basis, we are going to list what blogs we find that maintain “Do Follow” Tags throughout the sites. For basic SEO, this is important to receive some PR from the site you comment on. By no means am I suggesting that you SPAM any one of these blogs; this is to encourage some Link Love. For all of the Web Designer and Developers in the Naperville and Chicago area, w…
Press Releases are a life-blood of quality Organic SEO. Regular submission of business events for release to the press will ensure higher traffic and a wider reach of viewers. Ensure that you read specifically the requirements of each of the sites. Deviations from their rules will almost always result in a rejection of your submitted press release.
The following is a list of free or…
Our favorite place to work tends to be coffee shops and delicatessens. In all of the chaos and varying conversations, we can get lost in the work at hand. One particular place that we’ve come to enjoy more than most is the Atlanta Bread Company in Warrenville, Illinois. Since this franchise is family run, the atmosphere is not only welcoming, but quite inclusive and friendly. T…
