Your Snap! Website look and feel

Today I wanted to talk about something that's quite important for your Snap! Website but that quite many people do not follow to the letter.

When you are a business and use the services of a professional to create your website, then he or she will enter the content for you. Notice that a professional looking website will have very strict guidelines in regard to content styling. This is what I want to talk about here.

Your Facebook, Snap! Websites and other passwords...

Password Strength

I'm sure that, if you've been around for some time, you've heard of someone's account being hijacked. Half the time, that's because the password was something too simple. Although all companies could force you to enter a safe password, only banks really do it (and a few geek websites that you have probably never even heard of!) At least, Snap! Websites have a counter that let you know the strength of your password as you type it.

There are many tools that will help you check whether your password is considered safe. For instance, password1 is not safe. So are all the words found in any dictionary (especially English, but whatever the language, all the same.)

Lawsuit after lawsuit, is Bit Torrent illegal?

You may have heard, again, that Bit Torrent was involved in a lawsuit on September 4, 20101. Each time, the lawsuit is about copyrighted material and in this specific case it is about a number of people sharing porn movies via Bit Torrent.

So... Is Bit Torrent illegal?

Watching the progress of your Snap! Websites: 1st page, position 5, 3 entries on Google...

As you move forward with your blog or website, you want to add content with your keywords. This will make Google index your pages with that keyword1.

My blog talks about Snap! Websites as well as Snap! Blogger Lite, Snap! Blogger Pro and Snap! Business. Those are our 3 products and the name of this website so kind of like the name of my blog.

Having decided that Snap! by itself or Website by itself would not cut it very well on a Google search, I combined both. After about two weeks posting on my blog, there are the results...

  • 1. If you have products, make sure to mentions several products in each post. If you are selling brands (Nike, Xerox, Coca Cola, etc.) then mention the brand names all the time.

Choosing Your Snap! Websites Domain Name

I have been around for a while, as you may have guessed, and this is a subject that comes up quite often... What domain name should I get for my company?

As you can see, this website is called Snap! Websites. The name of the product is Snap! and it is all about you creating a website online. Already guessing the answer for your website?

Got a Twitter account? Heard "Twitter is Over Capacity"?

(Twitter is over capacity)In the last few days, I got the "Twitter is Over Capacity" message probably 5 times. If you are a heavy user of the service, you probably got it too. It has been going for about 2 weeks now.

I'm sorry for the company, but I can understand that, technically, it is quite a challenge to make such a network run smoothly 24/71.

This post is an attempt to show non-technical people what we do, silly billies like me, to allow millions of people to use one single Internet service such as Twitter, all at the same time. The concept is similar for all web based systems: Google, Facebook, Snap! Websites, etc.

  • 1. When you know that millions of tweets are sent by robots on standalone accounts, it is annoying, because a lot of the Twitter capacity is used for no reason whatsoever... Most people do not follow robots. They repeat themselves quite a bit and they don't have conversation.

How can I remember to properly write my Snap! Website Blog posts every time?

One of the main reason for writing a blog is to attract readership. Otherwise you could as well be doing some exercise or have a beer watching your favorite TV show.

The readership is especially useful if you have a message to promote (political, social, business, health...) For instance, I quite often mention my Snap! Websites system, obviously since I'm writing about it! Yet, even though it is toward promoting Snap!, you can get a lot of valuable information from my posts, and, of course, I expect you to remember the name Snap!...

Good. Now... How can I remember all the important things to write a post?

What is RSS and why do I want it on my websites?

Alexis Wilke's picture

Quite often, when I talk to people, they have no clue of what RSS is, how it works and what good it can do for them. Put simply:

RSS is a technology used by website owners to stay in touch with their audience

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. This Internet technology creates syndicated content from your posts that many in your audience can follow using tools such as Outlook, Thunderbird, Chrome, FireFox or Internet Explorer.

Try clicking on this icon: (Feed Icon)

So? How does it work?

How is your computer remembering your data?

I have been working with computers since 1980 and in the last 30 years I have seen an incredible evolution and it is still moving forward, quickly.

Computers use several technologies to save your data. I will be talking about the main four that people use today: ROM1, RAM, Hard Drives, and Flash Drives.

A website for Snap!

First, welcome to my (Small Snap! Logo) Snap! Websites Blog.

Last Monday, August 16, 2010, Made to Order Software launched our new system called (Small Snap! Logo) Snap!

This website is the logical continuation for (Small Snap! Logo) Snap!, a place just and only for our new baby product. Although we already have many pages about (Small Snap! Logo) Snap! on our corporate website, I thought it would be a lot easier if they all were on this website instead since there are so many other things on the corporate website...
