Another redesign relaunch in the books, as Ninthlink is proud to present the new look of Eco Caters Organic Catering : www.ecocaters.com. From overall information architecture cleanup to a total full-width design update to bring them hopefully at least a little bit closer to the present in terms of look and feel, from the first time we built their site in December 2007. Luckily we had used WordPress for them from the get-go, so even though everything got a fresh coat of fresh, their Blog Archives date all the way way back. With more luscious pictures to add to their already-delicious Organic Menus, and friendly layouts highlighting all the help you’ll get in booking your San Diego Wedding Caterer, or latest Corporate Events, I’d like to think we did them proud.

I don’t think it is any secret that we here at Ninthlink enjoy beer, from time to time at least. And it certainly won’t be any secret in another week or two. Why? Well I guess that is still a secret. But what should be no secret, is that Stone Brewing Co. is releasing another batch of their “devastatingly fresh” “Enjoy By” IPA! Bottling today, with an Estimated Arrival Date of Monday around the nation. READ MORE
With the goal of selling individual dealers instead of the cars themselves, we designed and developed a microsite for San Diego County’s Honda dealers to give visitors a general overview of Honda’s current models, promotions, and the ability to locate their nearest Honda dealer.
The perfect complement to PPC and other online marketing efforts, the site also features a News & Events section to highlight current offers, new models, and related announcements, such as the Chargers Blood Drive XXXIV – which received a Honda CR-V courtesy of Honda Dealers of San Diego County.
It’s Sunday night. I’m checking my last batch of emails before I turn in to bed. Typically, Sunday night emails are left for Spam but not tonight – not on this night. The message I read was from Google – sent to the webmaster/ owner/ optimizer of many sites (me). The note was short and sweet, and very simple to interpret. Moving forward Google will be notifying ME of all major issues, as they pertain to the health of our websites. If the issue is severe enough, Google will be giving us the actual details of the issue and will let us know if it persists. Google will even “cap” the number of emails, so they won’t become a burden to us.
While this may not sound like “news” to most, it signifies a radical change for those people that have been in the SEO Industry for a long time. What this means is that there will be no more guessing at what a potential problem might be but instead we will be getting information on the exact issue. In addition, we will be receiving action steps on how to fix the issue. This notification should be a welcome sigh of relief to not only optimizers but to anyone that owns a website.
Below is a screenshot of the email notification from Google so you can read it for yourself.
Could this be a kinder, more gentler Google? Absolutely! I know we sing the praises of Google often but this is a huge step forward in closing the communication gap between Google and website owners.
