Make your website secure in 2015 - it could affect your ranking if you don't

When a website is using an SSL certificate your web browser will display a padlock in the address bar and it may go green. (The start of the web address will also normally change from HTTP to HTTPS with the S standing for secure). This shows that the site is secure and OK to use.

QR Codes

Adding QR code to your marketing is still something not many people do but it is catching on slowly.

The QR code can be added to any printed advertising to give the viewer a quick way of accessing your website via their phone (it saves having to type in a URL on a phone which can be cumbersome at times and also lends itself to spelling mistakes).
