Google has gone public with its love for fast loading pages. These pages get better user response because less users abandon these fast pages having got bored while they were still loading. For the same reason, Google also considers page speed as one of the factors in its ranking algorithm.

There has been a huge rush for booking the .co domains, which was recently relaunched. People who got their .com names earlier are booking the .co names to protect their brand names and those who missed out are now catching up by getting the .co names.

However you should really focus on getting the domain names that include your keywords. While different people have been saying different things, it is a proven fact that keyword rich domains get a preference in the search engine ranking.

We have a few .co domains on sale here. If you like one or a few of these, make an offer. We seriously consider all reasonable offers.

How does your web site look when viewed through an iPhone or a Blackberry? Do you know that smartphones like iPhones and Blackberries are increasingly being used to search for information on the Internet and also to view different web sites?

If your regular web site does not render well on these devices (because they are made for the wide screen of the regular desktops and laptops), the mobile users will be unable to view the required information and request for a quote. They will give up on your web site and go to the site of a competitor. Whoops!

It is easy to solve this problem. All you need is a specially designed web site that is ‘made for’ the small screens of the smartphones and renders clearly on these. The information has to be compact (like that used on the Google Adwords) and directly usable. Also you need to put up prominent links to call for more information or a simple form that they can fill up easily.

Check out our mobile web design service and start tapping into the large population that carries the Internet in their pocket. You will be able to recover your small investment very soon. A client of us is already getting about 5 to 10 leads per day, within days of going live with their mobile site.
