WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, and other such content management systems are commonly talked about on the web. In fact, studies indicate that content management systems (CMS) power around 26.3 percent of the web. That percentage should only go up, because CMS is the best way to power a website. The question must then be asked, what is CMS?
CMS allows web designers to set up their clients with a template to which content can be added via an administrative interface. It is used commonly for blogs or shopping carts that contain content which is constantly being updated. With CMS, every page of content (whether that be text, images, video, etc) contains variables which can be changed by the website owner. This means the site owner doesn’t have to call up his developer just to adjust some text, replace an image, or add a menu item. The owner can do it himself.
If you’ve ever set up a blog with WordPress, Blogger, TypePad, or the like, you’ve used a content management system. The administration area, where you login to type a new post, is known as the backend to CMS. The backend is where a user can administer his/her blog. However, as you may have guessed, CMS doesn’t stop with blogs. CMS is used for e-commerce, social media, podcasting, and even normal websites!
Most of the best CMS out there are free and open source. They include WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, SilverStripe, and many more. As a web designer, I encourage all my clients to go the route of CMS, because it can help give them the independence to update their site without having to use me as a crutch. Allow me to set you up with a CMS website today!
In the current world of social media, there are two sites emerging. These two sites are rising above all other social media to become superpowers in the internet world. As you may have guessed, these two sites just happen to be Twitter and Facebook.
Both of these networks offer tools for businesses, and businesses worldwide are taking advantage of them. In fact, a company’s profile on Twitter and Facebook is possibly becoming more important than the company’s actual website! Whether that statement is true or not, we do know that social media is only going to get more important as time progresses.
Although Facebook has many more users, one might argue that there are more mature users on Twitter. This is possibly true considering Twitter has targeted an older audience. Since the majority of businesses are also targeted towards this older group, Twitter can’t be ignored! Facebook, however, does have more users, and should be taken quite seriously. In the end, your business can’t go wrong by joining both sites.
Getting on Facebook and Twitter is not nearly as important as keeping your Facebook and Twitter updated. Yes, you heard me. Signing up for both networks and them ignoring them will not help your business in the slightest! Keep your fans/followers informed by constantly posting links, pictures, videos, etc.
On the ever-changing world wide web, it can be tough to stay with the latest trends. It’s easy for any business to fall behind in the maelstrom of amendments to the internet. For now and the near future, social media is hot on the market, so get your business on Facebook and Twitter.
Social media is a wonderful tool that many are using to help market their business. There are a few social media websites that are extremely important to search engines; Twitter is one.
Twitter, unlike most social media, is a micro-blogging site, which means you can’t post more than two or three sentences at a time. So, generally businesses will just post links to their blog articles. If you want to market your site, Twitter is a necessity. If you have a blog (and you should) start taking a few extra seconds to get on Twitter and post links to your articles. Go ahead, sign up and start posting!
Getting your business on social media sites has always been important. And now, with Google Caffeine’s release just starting to take effect, social media is more important than ever! But, believe it or not, some social media sites are more important than others. You guessed it…Facebook is one of the important ones!
Why is putting your face on some social media site going to help your business?!! Well, personally getting on Facebook, or any social media for that matter, will not help your business. But, after getting an account with Facebook, members will have the option to create their very own fan page. What is this? A fan page is like a special page on Facebook for businesses/organizations. Members can become a fan of such pages, and when they do they will see whatever you post to your page. The more fans a given page has, the more popular and more Google friendly it will be. Creating a fan page is easy to do, and it will pay off! You may never use your personal Facebook account, but you will be able to advertise your business through a fan page.
Although you may not get any business from your fans, Google will see your page. If Google sees your page, it will also see any links you post to your website. When Google sees these links to your site, your ranking will get higher! So, please understand, although you may not get positive feedback from anybody on Facebook, your ranking on Google will grow.
