SEO is better than ever

It’s well known that Google began a huge fight against spammers and low quality websites. A lot have been penalized or even banned.

Think Usability

Lately I have been extremely busy improving my websites, because some of them were hit by Panda and I felt like they all lacked a proper usability.

There are people who have been waiting for a reply for more than [...]

Google’s new design

It seems like Google has changed its design again and I’m not sure if it’s available for everyone or they are just testing.
