The internet has come a long way since its humble beginnings. There was once only one website dedicated to explaining the World Wide Web project. The computer it was hosted on was in CERN and it had a hand-written sticker on it saying “This machine is a server. DO NOT POWER IT DOWN!!”Read More
We’ve been used to the same TLDs (top level domains) for a while now, everynow and then a drip of new TLDs has come onto the market however they’ve not had a massive impact.
From an SEO point of view those original national level TLDs have remained the most important types of domains with the .com; .co.uk and we’ll all know the other ones that are (or include) .gov, .biz, .info, .net, .org etc Read More

I’ve been thinking about how I can improve the design of GrowTraffic for a while. It needs it, but the thing is I’m a search marketer, not a designer or a developer and although I can build a website I feel there is a quality about the GrowTraffic design that reflects what it is I do as an SEO.
Instead of changing the design of GrowTraffic I decided that I would experiment first with another website, I bought a domain and started the building process.
I decided that I would create a website about a specific element of the SEO process and that’s why I bought seoaudting.co.uk – it’s built in WordPress and built using a theme I found on the internet that’s relatively similar to the GrowTraffic layout just a bit more up to date.
