Inside Radiate Digital

A Look Back at My Journey: from Intern to Team Member

I started as an intern at Radiate Digital in February of this year. Almost nine months later, I was promoted to a full time member of the staff! Although my career at Radiate Digital is just beginning, I am excited to see what my future with the company will bring.

Time Has Passed and Lessons Were Learned

Over the past nine months, I have received a crash course on the industry and what Radiate Digital brings to its clients. From website building to SEO optimization and blog writing, I have learned so much in such a short time.

When I first signed on with the team, I was just a beginner in the marketing industry, a young writer who had only seen a glimpse of what this industry could offer. Thanks to the team here I am now fully prepared to take on whatever challenges that the future holds.

Everyone here at Radiate Digital is a master of their respective fields, and I have learned different things from each and every one of them. Whether I was working on marketing with Elise, website content with Jaron and Chrissie or anything else, each person I worked with was a valuable mentor. I have each of them to thank for making me the employee that I am today.

As of now, I feel like a bit of a wild card at the company, which is fitting because I always considered myself to be a real joker. I look forward to finding my niche and running with it in the future. For now, I will continue to sharpen my skills with the help of my co-workers.

Speaking of Co-workers

The team here at Radiate Digital has been one of the best parts of working for the company. I was warmly welcomed with open arms and felt at home right away. Everyone here is as genuine as they are nice, and I am happy to continue working with them.

Whether we are cranking out some killer content, building websites or engaging with customers, we do it all with a great sense of joy and dedication, and that to me is the sign of a great company.

It’s all about having fun while you work hard. Otherwise, what’s the point?

It All Begins Now

I know that this is just the beginning of what will be a great career with a great company, and I look forward to working hard for our clients every single day of the week!

Security Beat: Best Practices for Website Security

According to internetlivestats, as of 2015, there are more than 3.2 billion internet users and 944 million websites and many more being added every second. In this enormous universe of the internet, the importance of having a secure website is critical. Staysecureonline states that more than 1.5 Million  people fall prey to cyber crime every day, that breaks down to 18 people per second. Cyber criminals use exceedingly effective computer software programs that automatically detect vulnerabilities in your website. Another growing phenomenon in the hacking community is ‘ransomware’. It’s a malware such as computer viruses, worms, trojan horses that encrypts files on your computer, then demands a ransom to unlock all your data.

So what security measures can you put in place to help protect your website against cyber crime? What possible guidelines could you follow to safeguard your interest and the interest of your customers?

Here is a list of top 7 tips to keep your website safe and ultimately protect your site from cyber attacks:

  1. Stay Updated – Updating to newer version of scripts as soon as they are released is highly crucial in keeping your website secure. It is suggested to update your site when a new plugin is released or a CMS version is available. Plugin updates are equally important as a full version upgrade.
  2. Username and Password Management – It is implied that your username and password are the most import elements while installing your CMS software. Password should be strong and should have at least8-10 characters, use a combination of letters in upper case as well as lower case, numbers and various other symbols. Remember that your passwords should be Complex, Long and Unique.
  3. Conduct regular infrastructure audits – Monitor your infrastructure for network intrusions, duplication attempts and any other suspicious traffic patterns. Identify and block the flow of data into and out of your network.
  4. Choose the right Hosting Provider – Although price is an important consideration, it should not be the only one. Other factors to consider a hosting provider includes customer reviews, technical support, anti-virus software and Firewall used for cPanel, frequency of backing up data.
  5. Secure your site with HTTPS and SSL – HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) protects the user’s personal information. Customers visiting your website expect a secure online experience while providing any data on the website. Adopting HTTPS in order to protect your customers connection to your website is very crucial. Consider using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificates with extended validation on all your web pages to protect your customer’s entire website visit. Scan your website daily for malware.
  6. Regular Back-ups – Regardless of all the measure you may have taken to avoid a cyber attack, there is always a risk of being a victim. Frequently backing up your data and having a recovery plan is crucial. Products like CodeGuard could help restore your website from any point.
  7. Educate your Employees – Educating your employees is the best defense against cyber crimes. Conduct new employee training as well as regular fresher training courses to impart the importance of data security in the organization. Train employees on how to select strong passwords, social media policies, online fraud, phishing risk an much more.

There are many other things like use of educating your customers, obtaining various digital certificates, and so on. You just can’t afford to take chances with security in today’s aggressive cyber environment. Displaying a trust mark ensures shoppers that your website is verified, trusted and likely free from malware. While these guidelines alone may not assure that your website is never hacked, following them will make you less vulnerable to cyber attacks.

Understanding these issues and being aware of them will prove to be beneficial to you in becoming a better website operator and invaluable to your customers.

As I mentioned above, WordPress is like an ocean of plugins. So the list of things you could do with WordPress is unfathomable. Even though you may be an avid web developer or designer, there are high chances of you missing out on a few plugins or integrations that could truly make matters less taxing and more lucid.

Entenda como a Plataforma de Hospedagem e Nome do Domínio Influenciam no SEO

Todos desejam que seus sites tenham uma ótima relevância nos motores de busca. Por isto uma otimização eficiente de SEO “Search Engine Optimization” ajuda a melhorar este rankeamento e consequentemente levar mais internautas para o seu site. Mas fazer SEO não é como fazer uma mágica e tirar um coelho da cartola, é preciso entender como e porque ele funciona. Veja abaixo alguns componentes necessários para escolher um nome de domínio e hospedagem adequados para tornar o seu site ainda mais relevante nos motores de busca.

Domínios

Você ficará surpreso de saber sobre vários fatores envolvidos para manter a URL de seu site adequada para SEO.

  • Relevância – O nome do domínio deve estar relacionado com o seu segmento comercial ou com algum propósito de seu site. Os especialistas em SEO preferem comprar domínios que combinem exatamente com o propósito de suas marcas, e que também combinem com as palavras-chaves preferidas dos usuários da internet. Por exemplo, se uma ONG deseja ter um site exclusivamente para adoção de animais, ela deve idealmente comprar o domínio “adoteumanimal.ong”. Os mecanismos de busca filtram as palavras mesmo que não tenham espaço. Já Hífens e underlines são considerados caracteres alfanuméricos e devem ser utilizados apenas quando há necessidade de separar palavras, já que em excesso podem ser entendidos como spam pelos mecanismos de busca.

  • Tamanho da URL – Quanto mais curto e objetivo for o nome do domínio, melhores serão os resultados. As pessoas apresentam uma tendência de clicar em URLs mais curtas ao invés das URLs longas e confusas, nas quais também podem diminuir a relevância de seu site nos motores de busca.

  • Fácil de Lembrar – Uma vez que você seguiu os requisitos acima, garanta que esteja utilizando palavras fáceis de lembrar e que não tomarão muito tempo para serem lembradas pelos internautas, e, principalmente pelos seus clientes.

  • Proteger a Marca – Existem muitas empresas que registram múltiplos nomes de domínios que são relevantes para os produtos e serviços que oferecem. Esta estratégia específica é fundamental do ponto de vista de negócios, mas não necessariamente é uma tática de SEO.

  • Novas Extensões de Domínios – O lançamento das novas extensões de domínios foi feito para auxiliar os internautas associarem os domínios com o propósito do site. Por exemplo, as pessoas sabem que um site com a nomenclatura .tv abordará temas de televisão, .tech abordará temas de tecnologia ou .beer para produtores ou amantes de cerveja.

As novas extensões de domínios ainda não influenciam diretamente o SEO. Contudo, embora o Google seja indiferente para as novas extensões de domínios, ele ressalta todas as palavras-chaves buscadas que sejam parte da URL. Digamos que você tenha um site www.fitness.club e a busca do internauta inclua as palavras fitness e club, então as chances de seu site subir no ranking de search engine são definitivamente maiores. Apesar da palavra “club” vir depois do ponto, ela continua sendo ressaltada, pois neste caso é reconhecida como uma palavra-chave.

Se você estiver planejando comprar um domínio que já esteja registrado, seja pragmático e considere um domínio que realmente compense comprar. Um dos fatores fundamentais é considerar se o nome do domínio realmente fornece uma boa associação a sua marca.

Hospedagem Web

Normalmente as pessoas não associam hospedagem web com SEO. Mas não se surpreenda ao saber que a hospedagem web tem um papel importantíssimo para aumentar a reelevância do seu site nos motores de busca. Veja algumas dicas para ficar atento:

  • Uptime e Downtime – Uptime diz respeito ao nível de disponibilidade que seu provedor garantirá para o seu site. O mais óbvio seria que o provedor de hospedagem garantisse seu site online 100% do tempo. E downtime diz respeito a quantidade de tempo que seu site poderá ficar indisponível. Logo a disponibilidade de seu site influencia diretamente no ranking das ferramentas de busca, especialmente o Google, que “não gosta” de redirecionar seus usuários para sites que não estão disponíveis.
  • Velocidade do Site – As ferramentas de busca também consideram em seu algoritmo o tempo de carregamento do site como parte do seu rankeamento de página. Em outras palavras, as ferramentas de busca priorizam sites de acordo com o tempo de carregamento.
  • Funcionalidades e Plugins – Se o seu provedor de hospedagem oferece Sistema de Gerenciamento de Conteúdo, como Softaculous ou WordPress que são otimizados para SEO, isso pode ser vantajoso para o seu rankeamento de busca.

Há também alguns scripts de SEO que contribuem para acompanhar e aumentar a performance do seu site. Alguns exemplos de scripts que você pode usar são: Phplist, SEOpanel e Open Web Analytics.

  • Tipo de Plano de Hospedagem – Hospedagem compartilhadas são os pacotes mais acessíveis, porém são menos eficientes para SEO, já que este tipo de hospedagem não oferece IP próprio. E isto pode afetar a visibilidade em ferramentas de busca e diminuir o rankeamento de seu site. Uma alternativa é você escolher serviços de hospedagem em servidores virtuais, conhecidos como VPS, onde você poderá ter um IP próprio, além de recursos dedicados para o seu site.

Agora que você entende sobre os vários componentes que influenciam na relevância de seu site nos motores de busca, basta seguir estes simples exemplos para tornar o seu site ainda mais visivel aos usuários.
