Google Adwords (PPC) vs. Organic Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)...

Pay per Click (PPC) advertising is a paid online advertising model, such as Google Adwords. Pay per Click results typically appear as "sponsored links" above or beside the normal (aka Organic) Search Engine results.

Organic search engine results are the natural, unpaid search engine results that are determined by the Search Engine. These are generally varied and contain a lengthier (though not always clear) description of the web page they are presenting.

While both Organic and PPC results are displayed on the same page, there are numerous differences between them...

Latest additions and improvements to your Content Management System...
We have been busy improving and adding to the functionality of Chilli Websites including:

To simplify adding new pages to your web site, we have recently changed the process to add pages. Where previously you selected an existing page on your website from which to base your new page (this option is still available), you can now begin each new page with a "clean" layout template...

Any email address links you place on your web pages will now be automatically encoded (using Javascript) to help prevent the email address being picked up by spammers or "spambots".  By scrambling the email in the "source code" of the page, it makes it very difficult for a "spambot" to decipher the email address.  Spammers who manually trawl your website will still be able to pick up your email address if they view the page online.  The only way to avoid this is to not publish your email address online and to only use the enquiry form for initial email communication.
Click here for more information on the enquiry form which is built into your website.

Easily back up all of the pages on your web site with one click now.  When logged into your Adminstration System, go to "Content Manager/Export Pages" and all of the HTML code for each page is saved into an Excel spread sheet.  You will be given the option to "view" or to "save" the Excel spread sheet.  This is useful for peace of mind as well as for backing up your pages prior to making major changes to your site. 



Quick Tip for Images/Photos on your Website
Improve the look of your site by adding a "buffer" to the photos on your website pages.

When you add an image to a page on your website, add "Horizontal Space" and/or "Vertical Space" around the image to prevent the text on the page coming right up to (and touching) the image.  You can dictate how much space you want around your images when you click on the "Insert/Edit Image" button in your pages manager - in the "Image Properties" window which opens you will see "HSpace" and "VSpace" fields in the lower left of the window. Enter a number value into these fields which will indicate how many "pixels" will buffer the image.  Typically a number between 8 to 12 is sufficient.
