Cindy Gundy wonders how her “lady” is holding up under isolation: if anyone is helping put her to bed, what she makes of the lack of visitors, if her supply of ice cream is exhausted yet.
Gundy, a home caregiver, hasn’t been able to visit her clients who live in assisted living facilities because of restrictions on visitors aimed at curbing the spread of the new coronavirus. She said she understands that the communities have to protect their residents, but she worries about those who don’t have family...

Something new that just started might mean your website needs to be updated. Any website that does not have an SSL Certificate is now marked as Not Secure by browsers. This means all websites really need to have an SSL Certificate. After all, what person would go to a website that is marked as Not Secure. This change might be a very small free change for your website. Or it might be a major change that will cost you some money. Some hosting providers, such as Godaddy, charge for an SSL Certificate. So this means you either have to pay your hosting provider a yearly fee of about $100 or you have to move your website to a new host that does not charge for an SSL Certificate. I have been telling clients if they are with a company like Godaddy that still charges for an SSL Certificate they should switch hosts. A company as big as Godaddy should not want to charge their customers for something like an SSL Certificate that many hosts are now giving for free. As always if you need direction on what you should do you can always contact me and I will be...

I’m always getting calls from people. Some call to ask how they place an ad or how they get a story on one of our websites. Others call asking what exactly we do or if we are hiring. I always love talking to people. I like getting a feel for what is going on in the world. Almost all of the calls I get are good. A couple calls I received one day recently weren’t so great. First I had a missed call from a number in Alaska. I saw it ringing but since I was busy and I don’t really know anyone in Alaska I didn’t answer. A few seconds later I got a notice that I had a voice mail. I called in to my voice mail and heard a message from a reporter up in Alaska. He said he had found one of his stories had just been published on our website. (About 50 percent of stories we post we pick up off RSS feeds from other websites) He said he had not given permission for us to republish his story and he wanted it taken down immediately. I logged into our backend and found his story. Something about a gold mine reopening in Alaska. To be honest I didn’t read it-frankly if they aren’t finding gold in my back yard I really don’t care. I also found two other stories of his that we had republished over the last 4 years. (Not exactly the most prolific writer in Alaska I guess) What he didn’t realize about the internet is that those three articles being republished on our website are what search engines call backlinks. The more backlinks you have the higher you show up in search engines. The more backlinks you have the search engines…
