Need a Website? Paintscape.net designs and develops WordPress Websites exclusively.
This is big news. Read more on Google Webmaster Central Blog.
As we move towards a more mobile-focused index our customers are in good shape because Paintscape Designs uses Responsive Design! Since the Content and Markup is equivalent across mobile and desktop in responsive WordPress websites, you shouldn’t have to change anything! However if you have a older site that has configuration where the primary content and markup is different across mobile and desktop, you should consider making some changes to your site. Make sure your site is current and working properly and contact me today!
As always, keep your site up to date and backup first! Need help? Contact Us…
WordPress 4.5.2 is now available. This is a security release for all previous versions and we strongly encourage you to update your sites immediately.
WordPress versions 4.5.1 and earlier are affected by a SOME vulnerability through Plupload, the third-party library WordPress uses for uploading files.

MediaElement.js and Plupload have also released updates fixing these issues.

You may have heard that many high-profile domain registrars are being targeted by a massive phishing attack against domain owners.
We have received reports that some of those attacks are using Tucows branded emails to target some of our resellers and possibly end users all over the world.

I have added Managed VPS Hosting because I find that many people do not keep up with updates and only get in touch when a problem surfaces. Also security on Websites has become more important and updates are more frequent in today’s climate as hackers are finding new security holes and exploiting them. A managed hosting plan adds additional peace of mind that the site is always up to date and secure. Being on a VPS (Virtual Private Server) also means that you are not negatively effected by other websites being compromised as can be the case on a shared server hosting plan. Please get in touch today for more information.
What is a Keyword and how do you use it in On-Page SEO? A keyword is generally a word or phrase that relates to the topic of your website, page or post. When some one searches for more information on a topic or product in a search engine they use keywords as a way to identify and verbalize what they’re looking for. Using On-Page SEO, website owners create content around relevant topics to their business or interests which helps them rank well and be found.
So when you are in edit mode or creating a new page, remember to keep your On-Page SEO in mind!
