Secure Protocol And The Beast That Is Best Website Tools

Computer cartoon nurse
Secure protocol upgrade coming soon. BWT is going through this website preparing it for transfer to a secure server. That needs to be done before makng the switch to a secure server.

Google the giant search engine is urging all small business websites to be hosted on a secure server. At first Google was insisting this be done by Oct.1, 2017. Then the deadline got pushed back until April 1, 2018. At least that is what I heard.

Big deal you might be wondering. How does this affect me? Pretty positively actually. In the new Chrome browser (v62) A little security (padlock) icon appears in the address bar at the top of the page. If present the page you are on is secure. If not present a big red nastygram appears saying "This Site Not Secure."

While on a secure page your personal information is protected from outside hackers. You'll like this feature when filling in forms, interacting with an app or making online purchases.

Would you want to use a website that tells you up front it is not safe to use? I doubt it. Would you buy anything from a site that you know could be hacked. Again, not likely.

Computer cartoon nurseThis is not just a feel good move. With identity theft being so prevelent Google cannot afford to promote unsecure websites. They plan on devaluing unsecure websites in the future. For a webmaster that could spell doom or gloom. Doom if the site cannot be moved to a secure server. Gloom if the site can be moved but doesn't meet secure protocol.

That is why BWT is being rebuilt again. Recent updates include but are not limited to, page by page evaluation and cleaning, menu structure updates, blog post re-organization and template modernization.

For the technically inclined we are moving all scripts, images, pages and support files to https: browser protocol. Which includes all buy now buttons leading to our secure shopping cart.

Okay you got me. We are obviously promoting our webmastering skills in hopes that you will hire us or purchase one of our products or services.

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words - The 5 Cs of Quality +1 How To Evaluate Images

Picture quality formula
We have all heard the phrase a picture is worth a thousand words. So when it comes to getting your message across images should always reinforce what you are saying, not the other way around. When the image speaks for itself your message is much clearer. If the image speaks to loud your message may be lost.

Use the 5 C's to evaluate an image or graphic to get a balanced picture. Great images have all the 'C' qualities going for them. Poor pictures can be corrected if you understand what is right and what is not right about it.

When composing your art work ask your self this question "does it pass the 5 C's?" If you answer no to any of them you can correct the error before you broadcast it. When you can answer yes to all the questions you know you have a well balanced picture and worth a thousand words.

Update Best Website Tools

Mobile responsive website designsHi all just a quick note about the state of business at Best Website Tools. We are currently going through the website page by page and making updates.

Updates include new template, secure protocol settings, broken link removal, code cleaning and blog pounding. All these changes should add up to a more pleasant user experience.

Template update - While BWT has been using a mobile responsive layout since 2010 many earlier pages have to be converted. The current template has been in use since May 2017.

Secure protocol settings - First I can't say enough good things about my server and host SiteSell Inc. They figured how to do a one-click website transfer from non-secure to secure servers. I just have to push the button. That is when I'm ready.

Meanwhile BWT needs to be prepared for secure server compatibility. That means all incoming data must be from another secure server or the page will be considered non-secure. To avoid that incoming data is either being switched to a secure source or being removed

Google has urged that all business websites move to a secure server soon. After a grace period Google will begin de-ranking or even unlisting non-compliant websites from their search engine.

Yikes, that could be a disaster for you or me. However BWT has tools that check a website for security issues. BWT started with about 1400 security issues. After cleaning out the easy stuff that number has been reduced to about 250.

BWT is working through the remaining issues and is aiming for completion by the end of 2017.

Broken link removal - in the past BWT sponsored many tools, marketing strategies and other webmasters. Over the years many of these products (and people) have been removed from the Internet. That makes for a lot of broken links over time.

Broken links are merely annoying for users but for search engines they are a scourge. SEs frown on broken links to the point that web-pages and whole websites can be de-listed because of them.

BWT is testing all on page links to make sure they work properly. If they are broken, they're deleted.

Code cleaning - this website began in 2007 and has experienced many updates since. Including changes to the layout and coding techniques. Many early pages were built using old and I mean old technology.

Sometimes we can't believe the poor coding that was used, oh so long ago. Many pages need to be brought up to current standards or are being removed.

Blog pounding - during this period of reconstruction BWT is using EasyBlogs blogging software as our HTML editor. I love this tool. EB separates content and template editors. Which make for an excellent content management system and template organizer.

Since EasyBlogs is a blog generator BWT is adding most updates to this blog. Stay tuned... we're blog pounding, code cleaning, broken link removing and going secure. Enjoy!
